What a winderful experience it was. It was so peaceful and relaxing. No need to drive around to do something. Lots to do right there on your doorstep. Any closer to the water your on a boat. Can't wait to go again.

A lovely home. Very well located. A bit tired in places and could do with a bit of TLC but a good holiday none the less.
