We stayed 5 nights in unit #17 on the upper level.The view of the ocean was nice. When we walked in, we were surprised to see a fold out wall bed and a very small bathroom all painted in solid white. The tables were very dirty with old drink rings and dust that I was able to clean off. There were signs to take off your shoes in the unit but when we did our feet would be very dirty just walking from the bed to the bathroom(a very short distance). We had ants in the bathroom on the first night which we were able to get rid of until the last night when we found dozensof them crawling on a shirt I had washed and on the kitchen counter. The pool was pretty and clean although we didn't use it. Nice short walk to the beach. The office staff was nice and apologetic about the ants. The maid did a nice job providing clean towels and cleaning garbage out daily that is all that was promised. The night was very noisy due to sirens from fire trucks; there is a fire station nearby. The kitchen has everything you need. There is no AC so you need to keep all the windows open at night but when we woke in the morning all our clothes were very damp. I would not stay here again.
