  • Great condo in a great location

    "Second time now to rent this condo and booking again for 2015! The condo has everything you need plus some and the location in town is perfect. Love, love the ice machine for going to the beach each day. Would recommend eating across the street at Franco's Italian Restaurant. Moe's Bar-B-Q, Wolf Bay Lodge and Shipp's Harbour Grill are also a must. Thanks Pat and Elaine for being so wonderful and sharing your beautiful condo on the beach with us!"
