We actually rented this unit, and the adjoining unit. This unit has two bedrooms, one with it's own bathroom and the other bathroom just a few steps down the hall. The futon was great for our teenage son, but doen't offer any privacy. He loved it because he could leave the slider open and take advantage of the ocean waves and breese at night. (With the adjoining unit we got another bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, and a small kitchen.) The kitchen in this unit was large and had enough dishes/silverware/glasses to serve dinner for the 6 of us, and three friends we had over for dinner. Plenty of pots for cooking. Each room had it's own air-conditioner, but we rarely used them. Coin operated washmachine and dryer in the unit (hall closet). Beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, paddle boards, kayaks, surf boards and coolers all available for rental on the grounds - all reasonably priced. Some guests complain about the ants, but when we followed all the clearly explained instructions about putting food away and keeping crumbs off counter tops and floors, we didn't have any problems. Absolutely no road noise, even with windows open at night - waves was all we heard.
