We are very fortunate to be living in one of the most beautiful areas in the whole world.

Our home is a countryside location with a quiet, treed and flowered neighborhood across from the Ardmore golf course. We have always loved living here for almost 40 years and look forward to sharing our home for your perfect vacation experience.

Beaches, local islands, lovely temperate weather, fishing, whale watching, "Old Victorian" style city, lots of shopping, world class restaurants, wineries and breweries, bike and walking trails all over the island, skin diving and one of my favorites - spas for whatever relaxes and soothes you. All within 30 to 40 minutes of our location.

Our neighborhood is close to Coles Bay beach. Quiet, secluded with many areas to go for a bike ride, stroll, power walk or run. The golf course is across the street from us so we are surrounded mostly by trees, lawns and rural vistas.

We have many wild birds, bunnies and deer that visit the property completing the country feeling.
