What a beautiful lovely cute place in a beautiful location. Really enjoyed the jetty too. Shame we could only stay one night. Would highly recommend.

Thanks for the relaxing and beautiful setting of your place! The studio was well stocked and comfortable. Thanks for the extras like a nice welcome snack in the fridge and the delicious breakfasts! The chickens never bothered us, the patio fireplace was enjoyable, the pier and waterfront view spectacular. We also appreciated the generosity of sharing the kayaks and other recreational equipment! Thanks!

Beautiful, clean, and welcoming spot. I loved having snacks right when I walked in and appreciated the coffee in the morning. Had to come to the area for business and found it a great setting to sit down and hammer out emails once I found a strong wifi connection. Chris and Channing are really friendly and the view can't be beat - I look forward to coming back soon!
