4/5 Good

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

Loved the location, the owners, the shower and the comfy beds!!! Have previously visited this place for a wedding and came back willingly. My only real downfall is that the wifi (which I paid for) dropped in and out quite frequently. Everything else was great

Good location to beach but note, no seaview from apartment 2. Leaking near window when it rains hard. Water tasted weird even after boiling. Water didn’t work on 2/4 of the days we were there.
