We are higher up the avenues and have amazing sea views from just about every part of the house.

In addition, the home has two garages with remote controlled access, a steep driveway, (the price one pays to live higher up), but although it may first appear challenging you will soon get the hang of it. The home also has a self-contained cottage. Norah, our housekeeper for many years lives in the cottage and will come as part of the rental as she is familiar with the house, does all the cleaning, washing, and ironing, as well as the ability to prepare breakfast and cook certain meals.
