Family of four stayed in a beach front room with an effeciency. The access to the beach was great....literally steps to the sand. We saved money eating breakfast and lunch in the room (full stove, frig and microwave). The room is quite dated, but clean....beds a bit mushy. Good maid service, not sure how they get all the sand out daily! Teens could walk to stores and fast food nearby.
My one issue is that I am a non-smoker, and I could not sit on my patio rocking chair for long without inhaling other's smoke. Not sure how they could handle this, since it is outside, but it seemed like everyone surrounding us were chain smokers.
