I hate to say it but it seems if you’re on the coast Monday – Friday, the weather is beautiful and then as soon as the weekend arrives along with our guests, winter hits!

Bank interest rates & savings accounts have been under
the spot light this week, specifically with them being so low it’s hardly worth
having cash in the account! With very little return on savings, older generations
and pensioners in particular are complaining about how they can generate a
return on their investment.

We
are very fortunate to have incredible relationships with local trades as we

accommodate our property owners, tenants and guests. … Continue Reading »
