Hard to explain unless you have seen it. Amazing little community in one of the most beautiful places you will ever find. Go see and experience. And when you get there go explore the rest of the island.
The lobby is quaint and welcoming. Hot tea and coffee a regular staple for anyone who happens to drop in. So close to so many wonderful experiences! Definitely coming back in the summertime again. Really enjoyed our room with a view!
