The cottage has central air throughout. You will find the cottage very inviting and decorated in a Mediterranean style. With its own off street parking for two cars, you won't have to worry about finding a parking spot which can be difficult during the season. Being just a stone's throw from everything in town you will find yourself walking everywhere. You will love your time in this cottage and will want to return again. The cottage is rented weekly during the season and on weekends with short notice during the spring and fall seasons .
