About the neighbourhood
A great home in a perfect location! 5 of 5 Less than 2 blocks from the beach! Shopping and great pubs only a 15 min drive. Easy to make day trips to most all the tourist attractions. This lovely home has 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths! The internet service is GREAT for those of you that have to work on your holiday. Also great for streaming Netflix. The kitchen has virtually any tool a cook might need. Helen & Mary are delightful to work with. They are helpful every step of the way. I stayed 6 weeks with several friends joining me at different times. Everyone was well pleased. I hope you get to enjoy this piece of heaven too!
