4/5 Good

Good but not perfect
This was our second time at this property, and like the first, the place itself was great. But it wasn't serviced as well as the first stay. This time around there was no propane for the BBQ, fewer towels and soap. But overall we still had a good experience staying here.

Great cottage
A beautifully finished and fully equipped cottage only a few minutes walk to the most perfect warm water where you can walk out fifty feet on a sandy bottom. Gorgeous.
