A brilliant beach retreat!

 It's a nice, comfortable house with a beautiful garden. We enjoyed especially the large deck for having breakfast or dinner. We didn't want to leave.

*A Couple's Cottage Retreat at the Beach!*

 The cottage is really lovely and peaceful. Everything was perfect (except the weather). Great location. Host is very friendly and was quick to respond to any queries. 

Best of Both Worlds - situated close to beaches

 Having wifi available meant it was very easy to plan our days, based on weather, low-tides, distances etc. Plenty of space in a nice quiet location. Thanks
