Simple Luxuries

The cove traditionally offered a low-key lifestyle, and the same is true today. You won’t find extravagant baths, DVD players, or even TVs. Instead, unassuming sleeping quarters and lounging areas prevail. Completed and planned accommodations range from private cottages to dorm-style bungalows with communal living areas. The cove encourages a community atmosphere with friendly card games and no-fuss meals.
