Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week by the ocean - beachcombing, playing, exploring the area and just hanging out. The location was AMAZING with seals, deer and cruise ships to look as in wonderment. There was lots of room in the house for our family of 4 and the deck was wonderful. Couldn't have had a better time in this unbelieveable place. Hope to return again and again - my 10 year old son said it was a better place to holiday than Mexico!!!! :O))
