We just adored staying there , even if there was a storm , lots of hail and wind . The house was very clean , lots of firewood , fresh flowers and we felt at home . We enjoyed some lovely walks on the beach , even with the hail showers , saw some seals and sea lions . Staying at the sand house is definitely a unique and wonderful experience . Thank you very much for letting others enjoy your special family home . Hope to come back in the summer .
