    Lovely location. Pretty rustic but I'd take it.

    I just want to spend hours upon hours sitting on that back deck looking out over the water. What a great life that would be.

    nice house, great location. but the ugly beds, ugly floral bedspreads, ugly dining room furniture, ugly coffee tables and ugly wicker furniture have to go.
    also, they have all that space to make a beautiful stone fireplace and instead, they get that tiny, ugly little stove? and that ugly piece of 'art' hanging above said ugly stove needs to die in a fire, as does the rest of their art.

    i like the house but not the furniture, the carpeting in the bedrooms, the low slanted ceiling in their bathroom and the noguchi paper lamps. really hate those.

    Fork it the fuck over. I'll deal with the redecorating when I get there. Absolutely fabulous.

    I'll take it gladly. In a heartbeat. It looks so relaxing.

    Yeah, the artwork... wtF is that hanging over the bed and the fireplace? And I hate the bed/spreads, and the papery Ikea lamps... actually I hate a lot of the stuff, but the house itself and the setting are really nice.

    This is actually very similar to my aunty's home in Nanaimo, BC. The only way I can describe where her home is situated is on the side of a mountain overlooking the ocean. It's incredibly beautiful.
