  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The view was spectacular, location very good, the room was clean. We did not realize that the bathroom, while not shared, was not ensuite. The bedroom was very small. Would have thought twice if this was known.

Nice view but over priced

The home was beautiful, but location was fast from activities. Parking was poor, driveway was narrow to accommodate homeowners plus two guests. Room was nice but bathroom was down the hall, felt like we were bothering the guests. The other room that was occupied had a private bathroom. Coming are nice but sparse. Charge was 90.00 American, so felt over priced. Steep stairs so if you have problems walking or a lot of luggage not a good choice.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property is within walking distance of two parks on the ocean. Note that this is a very hilly area for walking and the driveway to this property is especially steep.
