  • Great location (want to keep it a secret really) - short level...

    Great location (want to keep it a secret really) - short level walk to beach and shop, sunny and warm house. Has its own character as a memorial to Mac, which is engaging and interesting - strong sense of a family that knows its own people, and celebrates them.
