    Great location . Room had views of the ocean and snow covered mountain peaks. Very friendly hosts. Tastefully decorated with many of the little luxury extras you would expect. Tasty continental breakfast with cappuccinos made by the host.

    Warren, aka "old salty" - is a wealth of knowledge about local sea and weather conditions. It's uncanny how consistently right he about the best maritime activity to do when. If staying with us, pick his brain over breakfast. He's annoyingly accurate :)
