First thing we fell in love with was the open floor plan, then Rob and Annie showed us the patio and the view... This is where we spent 90% of our time. We watched every sunset and even saw some whales splashing around in the ocean two days in a row. The sunsets were phenomenal. We dropped everything we were doing to be sure to watch them every night and it was quite a show. Then there is the blowhole, a cove in the shale near the shore line. The waves crash against the shore and shoot up in the air creating a thundering sound and beautiful sight. We took the pathway down to the shoreline to watch up close and found ourselves just staring for an hour. It's pretty cool. About the house as a rental. We try to rent a home whenever we travel. This is one of the best homes we ever stayed in. The home was very well kept and, besides food and drink, had everything you could possibly need. The home is private and quiet but close to a mall, Costco and restaurants. If we did need to run out for anything it was a short 10 minute drive and done. No wasting your vacation time driving for an hour and battling with crowds.Rob was more than willing to help us with any questions we had and gave us a lot of suggestions for things to do in the area. We will stay here again for sure. No question. Honestly, out of all the homes we've stayed in, I wish we could live in this home forever.
