We had a great experience staying with Brian this summer. The cottage was clean and well maintained. Brian was extremely helpful and did everything he could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. He even made us a loaf of bread. I will definitely be back to stay.

The cottage itself was exactly as described, cozy! It had all the things necessary to have a relaxed stay. The beach is right behind the cottage and the patio makes for amazing bonding/meal times. Brian is very friendly and avalaible. Would recommend to anyone and can't wait to be back!
