I stayed at the guest house in March 2013. The Guest House is a 2nd floor apartment over a boutique. Pros...The unit itself is spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The location is in walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. Cons...The front of the unit is behind and upstairs from the boutique. The gate entering the property was not easy to open, especially at night, when we arrived. In the morning we were better able to see how it operated. The garbage was OVERFLOWING from previous the guest(s). It seemed to me like it had not been put out in quite awhile. It was gross. Our initial impression of the guest house was not a good one. The location is VERY NOISY. It is next door to a daycare and the boutique below plays LOUD music all day. If you're looking for peace and quiet this is not the unit for you. Relaxing by the pool is impossible,as the children are out all day except for an hour or two, presumably for nap time. This may seem like a small item, but ironing board supplied was a tiny portable one. The unit has ample storage space and brand new washer/dryer. It was strange to me they would skimp on not having a full size ironing board. I am giving it a 3 because the unit itself is lovely, however the noise was a HUGE issue.
