no grocery stores within walking distance. No shuttle that we know of. Ocean sands is approx 20 min drive from ferry terminal. As ex Brits, we had no difficulty with the driving on the other side of the road. you might want to check on Google for Greyhound buses but really, you will miss a lot by not being able to drive around hope this helps.

Yes, there is a discount for booking weekly. Our weekly rates depend on the condo type you are looking for ie 1 or 2 Bedroom Oceanfront Condos or 2 Bedroom Poolside Condos.

Is there a barbecue?
Yes, there are bar-b-ques. Just check there is one at the suite you are renting. I think most, if not all, of the suites have them. You will have a fabulous time there, we have just booked for a month for next year we enjoy it so much, so relaxing and glorious scenery and great hosts. Enjoy!
