This historic home has been done up nicely and has all the amenities you'd need as well as a nice feel about it. Its location is spot on only 2mins from the beach. Our hosts were a lovely couple and real sweet hearts, cooking us a loaf of fresh bread for the morning. Just a perfect stay in every way!

Abbott House was perfect for us. We didn't rent a car, so the door to door public bus service from the airport to Abbott House was a real benefit.
