“Good Location”

The good stuff - great location - easy walking distance to the main street, restos and shops. Also, spacious, plenty of hot water and conveniences such as a washer/dryer, plenty of linens and a parking space close by. The owner was very helpful and responsive to all questions. Would say the main downside was cleanliness. We noticed some ants/cockroaches, dirty dishes in the cupboard, moldy shower liner and a few other things.

From the moment I contacted the owner about this unit the service was outstanding with quick responses. The property was exactly as described and was very convenient having everything that we needed to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. The sunsets from the upstairs lanai are beautiful. The property is situated just a short walk from the shops and restaurants making it so much easier not having to find parking. The welcome basket was delicious.

Jim was easy to work with and his condo is really nice there are stairs up to it but if you are wanting a homely place to stay this is it. We like it was right off one of the main road so if you wanted to walk you could. And if you are on a budge it's the way to go you can go to the store and buy food and make your it yourself or go out to eat. And there is so much to do sometimes it is nice to just stay at a place that i could call home any day.

Overall quite good. A few minor issues - towels etc supplied in bathroom for only 2 persons (4 were staying) - eventually I found some older towels in a cupboard. No basic toiletries (soap/shampoo) in bathroom. No electric kettle in kitchen (but plenty of other appliances!). WiFi password not supplied with booking information, and nowhere to be found in unit (and the local contact didn't know what it was). The aircon in the living areas was good, but no aircon in upstairs bedrooms which were quite hot even with ceiling fans. Owner was kind enough to allow a late checkout on the last day.

Thanks for the response. All of the information was emailed with the WiFi and password right on the information sheet. The packet says to make sure to print out a copy and take it with you. Also in the information sheet: no toiletries are included other than soap. Brand new towels in the pantry..

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of our trip. This is a 2nd floor townhouse with 2 bedrooms upstairs. It is well equipped with lots of beach toys, chairs, cooler, masks and snorkels, etc. It is in walking distance to shopping and the waterfront. Overall it was a fine home base. I do have a couple of small issues but nothing major.
