Your house was perfect for us, very clean & comfortable and very well equipped. The beach chairs etc were ideal, we used them every day. We all enjoyed the lovely pool especially the children and the beach was beautiful, very peaceful and relaxing. Bonita beach is certainly a lovely place & if we can come again one year we will certainly love to return to Dolphin House. Thanks again.
