  • Wow!! What a Location! Couldn't ask for a better spot

    Wow!! What a Location! Couldn't ask for a better spot. Beautiful bay, amazing to be able to watch the sun rise & set over the ocean in two different locations only 100m each way from the bach. One of those spots has a boat ramp. Ample room to park the boat off the street. The bach itself is basic (as you'd expect)but still has everything you need. There was 5 of us and there was plenty of space. Highly recommended. We would love to go back.
