    Property condition

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    The location is excellent - right at the center of everything and steps from the beach. It was a little loud at night with a band playing at the bar next door, but that wasn’t a big deal. The cottage wasn’t fancy, but it was nicely appointed, had everything we needed and was very clean. The instructions for accessing the property were good but could use a little detail such as the name of the cottage complex (Shangri-La) and the number of the actual cottage were were renting. Parking is a couple streets away, so you need to unload your car at the entrance to the cottages, then park and walk back. Not too far, but it would be nice if that were specified in the instructions since it was a little confusing. Overall, it was a nice property and I would recommend it.
