Hey Toni, it was great to have you. Next time, just use the side trail. We are only 100 meters from the water, and its only a 3 minute trail walk to the beach. Sorry, about the water issues during your stay. The city has been upgrading the pipes, and they periodically shut down the water. We have since installed an extra water tank reserve.Thanks again for your comments, and you're always welcome at our home.
