Located on the same side of the street as the ocean (NOT across the street from the ocean), the Orchid cottage has limited views and easy access to the whitewater coastline. Walk along the coast in either direction or fish from the cliffs. Soothing sounds of the waves crashing along the shoreline can be heard day and night. This spacious 1-bedroom 1-bath house is an affordable accommodation for an individual or couple who wants to be near the ocean. The house has a fold out couch for additional guests. A high quality inflatable mattress is also available instead of the fold out couch.
Very clean and exceptionally well appointed. Kitchen, full-sized washer/dryer, high speed internet (WiFi), cable TV, etc.
