My husband and I stayed here for a week in early October. We are in our mid fifties and enjoy a quiet vacation and this area fit us well.Our room was unit 15, which is a studio unit with a murphy bed. It is small, but with the bed tucked away during the day the room was quite comfortable and the bed was very easy to raise and lower.The bathroom was small as we expected. There is no bathtub and the corner shower is tiny, so much so that if we had stayed for more than a week I would want a larger space. If the bulky shower curtain was removed and replaced with a shower door it would probably feel a little less claustrophobic. You know how some shower curtains float in to attach themselves to your wet skin? Combine that with an already tiny space and it isn't fun.
The only other aspect of the room I didn't like is the location of the room safe. It is above the microwave which is so high the average woman would have to stand on a chair to reach it. Moving it to a lower cupboard would be an improvement in safety and convenience.
The room and the grounds were very well kept. Thank you to Deborah for her cleaning as well as her friendliness. I don't know the man's name who did the outside work but thanks to him as well.The office staff were friendly and helpful and very prompt in updating us when the power failed one morning. The view from our unit was wonderful. The air conditioning unit was whisper quiet.
If we return to this area I would certainly choose Windjammer again. I'm still checking out the beach cam daily!
