On our budget friendly trip my friend and I stayed here for five days. We were overcome with gratitude for the owner Carol. She was so fun, helpful and thoughtful. She gladly arranged our excursions and pointed us in the direction of great activities, restaurants and beaches. We had such an amazing stay.
