Three individually located units, each with private entrance and dedicated patio's. On site parking and within a two minute walk to the village. Enjoy an afternoon at the sparkling salt water pool

Warm personal welcome awaits visitors. Our mission is to personally welcome our guests and the goal is for you to leave as friends. The many return guests we have on an annual basis is testimony to this.

Quiet safe and tranquil, yet so close to the village. Enjoy quiet evenings on the patio with the barbecue fire crackling in the background or stroll into the village for a leisurely evening meal. A short stroll to the nature trails and tidal pool
