I'd rather it be right than it be rushed. We have renovated our dream ocean house over a year. The focus is the views, sun, and water sports.
The house layout highlights the views and sun from morning til dusk. The kitchen allows for creativity to cook wonderful meals. Two patios allow guests to relax enjoying the views, the sun or shadow, while exploring your culinary BBQ expertise
At the end of a hiking, biking or swimming day, you can relax at the fire bowl or in the full size soaker tub and then retire to the sound of the waves against the beach.
The three bedroom house has three bedrooms upstairs (a king and two queen size beds) with shared bathroom. Downstairs on the main floor is a room with a daybed and desktop next to the open concept living room and a comfortable brand new bathroom. An office on first floor and super fast internet allows working from home if required.
