          I didn't stay in a traditional cottage, but in the shipping container decorated and set with all needed requirements, and much more. The outdoor shower is a unique experience. A private enclosure surrounded by nature, it almost felt like paradise on earth! Thank you Debbie...More

          You've been highly recommended by a friend who stayed with you and couldn't say enough good things. I've looked at pictures and read reviews and it all sounds wonderful, but how do I get a quote on accommodation? Thinking 2 weeks soon, but not sure of date yet. 2 adults. I would greatly appreciate a response as soon as you're able. Thank you. Also, is there a pool? Not necessary given the lovely beach, but just a question.
