It was recommened by a friend and she said we would like it .... she was wrong..WE LOVED IT !!....We arrived on Nov, 6, 2011 from a cruise and met the owner, Dave, in his office. Although we just met him he was like our best friend and went out of his way to make us feel at home. He explained all about the area including nice places to eat (within walking distance) and about some of the shopping malls that were only a short drive.(Note: There is a small convenience store about a 2 min walk where you can get bottled water, pop, beer, ice, wine, etc and the beer is cheaper than at Walmart !!) The beach is a beautiful 5 min walk and you could borrow lawn chairs from the hotel to sit on and watch the sun set. The heated pool was fantastic, the room was clean and A/C comfortable. It had a well equipped kitchen and there is a large BQ on site for your use. Parking was in front of the hotel and very easy to get in and out of. We sat out every evening with a drink and chatted with our neigbours. It was so relaxing and the area was very quite. We are already planning another stay with Dave next year...and why not..it was like staying with your best friends!!
