Lovely comfortable home with a fantastic ocean frontage. Listen to the waves crash just 50 feet away, sipping on your wine in the evening , or a hot coffee in the morning. Beautifully decorated with everything one needs. Excellent location to get to anywhere easily and the owner is incredibly helpful and genuine. Loved being here for a month.

Management response:
