    The location was ok. The bathroom fan was noisy and the shower leaked if you didn't put pressure on the top of the shower head. Ok the last thing I know this was advertised as an adult only property, but when the sun was out we were unable to take advantage of the rooftop sun deck, due to others sun bathing nude. Could use signs or some other advance warning of this type of activities.

    It was very laid back. Christine and the staff were so sweet. Breakfast was always wonderful, much better than a hotel. The beds were very comfortable and location could not be better.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    Room not at all like photos, very small with too much oversized old awful furniture, get rid of the huge dresser and nasty chairs, put in something smaller with 1 chair. 3 walls painted neon green, 1 not painted. Paint dirty and chipped/peeling in places, floor is original and beautiful except where it'srotted out.... Blinds and valance on 2 windows so lots of light to accompany noise from outside and upstairs all night. Earplugs they provide helped a little. Bed and pillows were old and nasty, bedding was clean but sheets were bally. Bath was tiny, no room to put anything out, wicker shelf on wall, shampoo/body wash dispenser nasty. Overall place was pretty clean, 2 ladies were so nice and amenities were nice. Spa wasn't hot. Breakfast was extensive and excellent. Appreciated being able to leave bags there until ferry left.

    We loved everything about our stay & will be coming back! We were well accommodated at arrival and every second thereafter! All the personal touches and thoughtful considerations for convenience showed us that Les was an outstanding host! Thank you
