  • “House was perfect for our family.”

    In walking distance of small coves and a handy little shopping area with coffee shops and restaurants. Owners had thought of everything . We appreciated the supplies of cleaning products and essentials that are not always present in some properties .The treat box and food basket were a lovely addition. Would certainly stay again.
