    The Bach is located at the end of a quiet street walking distance to the beautiful beach. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back if we are ever in the area.

  • Highly recommend this property

    Highly recommend this property. It is in a great position, close to the beach and very quiet. The furnishings are great, almost like home away from home! The best part was being able to take our dog with us as well. Hope to visit again soon.
