About Nola or Brad
Island born and raised, and an islander at heart, the best days for us are days we spend at the beach with family and friends.
Nola or Brad purchased this house in 2013
Why Nola or Brad chose Bowser
Its been our life long dream to live on the waters edge, we love the sound of the waves, and the antics of the seals and pups. It is ideally located in the heart of the island with access to all ammenities
What makes this house unique
We stood on the the seawall, an looked at the ocean vista and said to each other, 'this is it....'
