Thankyou for a wonderful stay! What a lovely little house with a truly amazing view!!!
We found the access to the ferry a major asset......being able to walk across the road to the beach brilliant! The house and furniture were really comfy and cozy...and the backyard a huge asset for our dog. We loved it and it was so reasonably priced. We really had the most wonderful time and will definitely recommend you. (Andrea, March 2013)
