We had a four night stay with Ali and Rich at the beach house and we couldn't have been more pleased. From the amazing breakfasts to the relaxing vibe of the indoor and outdoor decor, to the snuggly hangs with their dog, Hansa - everything was just wonderful.
Rich took us on some day trips to go Zip Lining and to a Snake farm! Both great adventures. We did one surf lesson with him and really had an incredible time!
Ali is such a gracious host. She was totally attentive to any and all of our needs and also very sensitive and aware of the time we needed to relax and not be bothered. Her smoothies really rule the world!
The bed was comfy and we had a great breeze coming off of the beach. It was like heaven. Can't wait to return!
