Kayakers and small sailboats sailing from the HMB yacht club. Fishing boats going out to sea, a small fishing pier, the wide open ocean, the fresh ocean air, and the rise and fall of the tide. We are on the coastal trail, great for biking and walking.

Thank you so much for such a nice stay at your place. It was comfortable and practical and we enjoyed meeting you. You are great hosts and we do recommend your place to all other visitors from around the world.
Me and my husband were happy to spend a weekend in this tremendous room. It was even better than I suspected. I definitely recommend to stay in that place. Great thanks!!! @-)
Mike was a great host, showed us around the house upon his arrival. We had a short stay but left relaxed and rejuvenated! Thank you.
Harriet & Mike are great persons and welcoming hosts. We had interesting conversations and they made wise suggestions about food places, spots to visit, and much more. Our stay in their beautiful and confortable house on the beach was nice and relaxing. We highly recommend their home.
Sea house was real high spec.,the ensuite bathroom was as big as a hotel room,and everything was done to highest spec.you got a lovely balcony overlooking a bit of beach and the harbour.the hosts were really nice and helpful without being in your face.i am British!!my only worry and this says more about me than the place was no lock on the door from outside!but otherwise it was (website hidden) to leave the car off the road and great places to eat and drink nearby.one bar made its own beer and seemed to have music every night.the house is in an area that is zoned as more than residential which is as
A surprise with lots of boat builders about but nothing if not (website hidden) stay in this place its lively
H+ M were great hosts! The house has an amazing location with a view all over the marina up to the ocean. We had our own private deck which is just the perfect place to watch the sunset. The bathroom was also great, because it's really large. We were allowed to use the whole house including the kitchen, which was equipped with everything.
Perfect place to stay!
Amazing that you share this absolutely incredible place with other people. Cannot think of a better place the relax and unwind after a couple of days on the road and that's just what we did. We definitely hope to be able to return in the (near) future and fall asleep with the sound of the ocean on the background.

About the Host, .. H + M
We are coast loving people. We, Harriet and Mike have lived on the coast for about twenty years and have five grown daughters, three of which we raised in this house. Mike is a kayak instructor and certified alchemical hypnotherapist, while Harriet is a health practitioner. For fun.....We walk on the beach every day and we love the weather, be it sunny or foggy. We love the ocean and regularly get in it, either on a kayak or a boogie board. The new water sport Harriet is excited to try is stand-up paddle boarding. When we go on vacation, we take more road trips than flights and tend to stay on the coast. Mike plays bass guitar and we both like flamenco music. We have a little dog (don't tell him he's little), who is part jack russel and blue heeler. He is older now and much more quiet. Lately we have been enjoying the Pie Ranch Barn Dance. Its a little rowdy, a lot of fun and anyone can go.We are very friendly and we welcome you to utilize our wealth of information of the area. We also appreciate the retreat and solitude that this natural setting can offer.
