    This is a wonderful place to stay - warm (or cool - depending on the season). The stress drops away from our shoulders as we drive in the gate and we always feel so comfortable there - and very relaxed when it is time to depart. The house has every single amenity and the beach is but a 3 minute stroll away. There are other adventures to be had too - Whale Bay, the mermaid pools and there are some amazing walks and bike rides to be had. Thank you John and Judy!
