This is our favourite place on the planet! This is our first stay here & we hope to return this summer. The cottage had everything we needed & the view is spectacular! Nothing can rival waking up to it or seeing the wonderful sunsets & pink skies over the bay. It's the sort of place you want to keep secret, but you couldn't really deny friends & family "this jewel". We'll be telling anybody who will listen. Thank you for a lovely hospitable welcome. See you soon.
