The location looking over the water is great and the views are wonderful. Tom was kind enough to meet us there and show us around. Everything we needed was conveniently available. We only needed to bring food, drinks and ice. Enjoyed most evenings on the balcony watching the sunset and listening to the waves. This is a peaceful and relaxing location and property.
