Cozy, beautiful bed and breakfast run by a lovely run who will help you with your every need. They arranged pick up and drop off to the airport for us. As two single women traveling together, we felt very safe staying here and with our transportation arrangements. Near the beach.

Lee and Bill put me in touch with a fantastic travel agent who was able to provide exactly what I wanted despite it being a little unusual. Lee and Bill... More
