Miriam Kraft, the lovely proprietress of this porperty is it's greatest asset. Always "on duty", she promptly answered several emails before our threesome's arrival, then continued to happily assist us with activities like planning surf lessons and recommending local businesses and services. Miriam always had a 'friend' who could help us with whatever we needed- at substantial discounts over anything else we coule find! She was also constantly upgrading the property with fresh paint, new drainage systems, etc...
