"I am half way though my week here... it’s a charming house full of character and beautiful interiors, you’ll fall in life with this little house.. You can see it’s been restored with love... the furnishings and general restoration are of a super high quality, far exceeded my expectations. It’s in the perfect location with the beach and Etterick Bay just walking distance away. It also has an awesome sunroom to get the best of the sunsets.. just a little jewel in the crown.."
