The first floor consists of a double bedroom with harbour and sea views, and a small shower room with wash basin and toilet. On the top floor there is a light and airy sitting room with exposed rafters, with sofa, TV, DVD player, bluetooth wireless speaker and ipod dock, and great views over the harbour and sea.
