    "The cottage was large, clean, comfortable, had terrific WiFi service, a great shower, and a fantastic view out of the sitting room and front bedroom windows. The owner was very generous, friendly and helpful, we enjoyed talking with him. The cottage is in a beautiful spot and we had a great time exploring the island from there.
