                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Linda & l are retired teachers living in Cobble Hill, 2 hour drive to our beach house.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bowser:
                      We bought this house so that we could all enjoy it together. The four grandchildren enjoy playing in the sand and looking for crabs & starfish. Sitting out on the deck and beach together as a family is where memories are made!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love watching the eagles from our deck, the cruise ships passing by and sitting at the firepit. Library, art gallery,grocery store,liquor store & coffee shop are close by. This house sleeps 8 in beds.
