March 2016

My family had a great little weekend getaway in this house. The main room is spacious and bright. Perfect setup for a family, though the bathroom is accessible only through the bedroom. Also, this house is on a "main" street by island standards, so there was some traffic noise during the day, but not problem at night. Centrally located, so it's an easy walk to anywhere on the island and to the ferry.
