          Do you have any food packs available such as breakfast or BBQ packs? Is there a communal BBQ as we are a group of 8?

          Hi, We don't have any food packs available, there are two supermarkets 10 minutes away by car. Each apartment has its own BBQ on its deck facing the ocean. Kind regards Denise
