  • Great location, beautiful view overlooking the bay and boats

    Great location, beautiful view overlooking the bay and boats. Steep incline to get to the property but when reached worth it. As we stayed in and cooked most nights would have preferred a stove instead of a two burn electric cook top, all else good.
