    “Great property in a great location.”

    The 3 bedrooms and separate bathroom was all as described in the listing. Having a garage so close to the harbour and town was brilliant. Not having to worry about parking and parking fees was very welcome. The view of the boats and water from the property was excellent. Would stay there again and hopefully will do so soon.
