This place is ok, cute and very affordable for the area. We had 3 problems. The first was that at the time we booked our stay the website stated that our unit had 2 bedrooms with a queen in each bedroom. We arrived (2 couples) to find a king and two twins. We had to call the off-site managers and had to really push for them to do anything. They ended up just pushing the twins together (no connector or anything) and one couple got to spend the weekend trying not to slide onto the floor through the middle of the bed. Even though this was clearly their error they didn;t offer us any discount or alternative accomodation.
Second, the individual bedrooms that can be rented separately or with another unit are a real problem. This is NOT like an adjoining room at an actual hotel, instead it's just the 2nd or 3rd bedroom closed off with a slide lock. That means almost no insulation and you're hearing and being heard by strangers (luckily our were nice and only a little annoying).
Finally, we had some real problems with the cleanliness of the unit - arrived off the road ready for a shower and had to wipe the lasts guests dirty sand out of the tub first - yuck!
All that aside, we had a pretty good time, it is close to the beach and shopping, just wish it had been a little nicer.
