The owners have done a super job renovating. The kitchen is entirely wood - floors, counters, cabinets. It's like a sailboat galley, but with lots of windows and counterspace. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs - a guest room for 2 in the front of the house and a "master suite" in the back overlooking the garden. This consists of a nice little sitting room and then the bedroom is beyond that with windows on 3 sides. The house has A/C boxes, but I never used it. There's great cross-ventilation and sky windows in both bedrooms. The backyard is beautiful -- nice porch with a gas grill and a beautiful garden, testimony to Bridget's British green thumb. The location of the house is perfect - walking distance to town and mansions, biking distance to beaches. I cannot recommend this charming place, or its owners, more highly.
