The rooms were clean and roomy enough. The beds were reasonably comfortable. There was no musty smell, that you often get near the beach. On the other hand, this is not that close to the beach. The pool is nice enough. Nothing special, but decent.

I was really pleasantly surprised at the size of the cottage and how finished it really was (had read reviews that is didn't appear finished inside). Had... More
