  • This property was adequate/leaning towards a Spartan one bedroom cottage

    This property was adequate/leaning towards a Spartan one bedroom cottage. It did have a great deck with a great view of the bay. It helped that John and his family lived virtually next to the cottage and any issues could be and were remedied on the spot.
