Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I went to this gorgeous home with our two kids aged 3 and 7 and had the best time. The house was even more beautiful than we expected and it was immaculate. The location is quiet and we were able to bird watch, see seals and go fishing. The location is great for biking and walking and also close to so many attractions that the kids loved including a railway for kids, beaches, mini-golf, boating excursions and fun towns within 40 minutes. We will be back.
