We wanted a place within walking distance of the beach and non-tourist stores. Check. We wanted a place within a short drive of our expectant daughter's home. Check. We wanted a place that had a kitchen and solid wifi. Check. We wanted a place where we could stay for a month affordably and work (when we had to) and vacation (when we could). Check and check.
We will book here again whenever we have long stays near our daughter (and new granddaughter).
Things to improve? Only one: either sweep the paved paths below the trees frequently or supply a push broom so we can do it ourselves. Some of the trees dropped berries that we couldn't avoid (and therefore tracked into the cottage and had to keep sweeping off the floors). It would have been far easier to have had a large outdoor broom so we could have swept the path ourselves. I don't really expect an off-site maintenance staff to keep up with prolific trees, so let us do that alongside with doing our own dishes and laundry.
We can't wait to return.
