Great house for a great price. The house is clean and well kept and there was plenty of space for 5 adult men on a fishing trip. The deck has a decent view of the mountains (trees block part of it) and very little view of the ocean but the deck is still a great place to sit and hang...

Management response:

Thank you for the pleasant review Joseph. We appreciated the way you left the house nice and tidy. Sorry you missed the dish draining rack located under the kitchen sink. We have been contemplating the addition of a BBQ but haven't made that add yet. We will definately add a colander though, thank you for the suggestion. Hope your travels...
