This is a great place to stay if you don't want to stay at a hotel or want a great deal. Only a 5-10 minute walk to downtown where you can take the bus anywhere on the island for only a couple of dollars. Stan is a great owner who will take good care of you. Highly recommend.

We had nice breakfast ever morning) If you rent a car there is no proble with reaching the beach, downtown or different locals restaurants. It 's easy to find, near "Fantastic garden"!!! Quite and comfort aparments!

Located in a residential area it was easy walking distance to downtown, restaurants, the bus terminal and the Renaissance Center. The hosts, Ingrid and Stanley... More

We were there for 2 weeks and were wery happy with our choice of hotel. It was a short distance to downtown and the beach. Also, a good grocery store right next door. It felt like we were VIP guests and many thanks to Ingrid and Stanley.
