We spent a week end at 1708 and had a wonderful time. The house and the cottage was lovely and the decor and attention to detail is unbelievable. The period furniture and the whole atmosphere made you feel so special. The location again was so great that we could walk to the shops and the restaurants.
The only short coming I can point out is they were not very accommodating regarding the check out time. The check in was at 3pm and check out at 12 noon which gave us very little time for breakfast and beach the next morning. The breakfast was nice , however the "high tea" was frugal.
