    The cottage faced the water, the sound of the surf was very relaxing and comforting. The staff was cordial. If you are looking to kick back and relax, with the family, this is the place. You can cook in your own kitchen or eat out

    It is within walking distance, but as other have said, it is advised not to walk anywhere after dark. The cottages do have bicycles that can but used by the guests. It is a walk with a beautiful view!!!
