    Response from summer-place, Manager at Ocean Watch GuesthouseResponded 14 October 2016

    Due to this incident, future clients are now advised by management, to not leave any luggage in their car, while in residence, so there is no reason for anyone to break in.

    The place was beautiful, the host was friendly and the view was great! The host also explained everything and was helpful at all times. The room and bathroom was spectacular and the breakfast was also amazing! Will stay here again in a heart beat.
