Amazing views

This place is wonderful - at high tide it's like being on a cruise ship when you're sitting in the living room, All you can see is water and waves. Even on a rainy day, it's never boring. The apartment is well furnished, the owner friendly and quick to respond to any questions. I'm sure we'll go there again...
