Sigh.. If only all "bungalows" could look like this one. Ok so there's no beach at this beach motel but this is no ordinary bungalow, this is a waterfront house all for a mere 12000xpf. Not cheap but a pretty damn good deal for an entire house with full kitchen, dining, living area plus huge deck. It's not a hotel either with fancy fixtures but all clean, well maintained and nice wooden furniture.
The family that owns and runs this place are so nice and warm. If you need anything, they give you a lift into town to pick up groceries, ATM, pharmacy, etc. they speak English and French fluently and are super helpful.
The one thing I wished they had available was wifi in the bungalow. I was too far from the main house to get signal. No big deal, no internet for a few days but it would have been nice.
Also there is no restaurant on sight but some restaurants around offer free pick up and drop off or even deliver dinner to your door step. It's a nice alternative to a hotel setting. Although if they ever open up a restaurant, I bet it would be quite busy and good as well.
