Very close to the ocean and town. The kitchen got so hot in the afternoon it was virtually unusable, even with the blind down.

Very nice property which overlooked the water. Only down side was the traffic noise but made up for by being very spacious and comfortable within walking distance to wharf and restaurants. Lovely friendly and welcoming woman managing the property. Thanks for the stay.

I am very sorry about the terrible behaviour of the guests next door. You never know what people will do when they drink to excess. The police were called twice but did not respond.
