          Thanks for looking into that Dawn! We did ask on 2 occasions for another set of keys and were turned down each time. We had 2 cars out at a time and one of us wanted to stay back at the unit so as you can see - it was a real nightmare for one lot trying to get back into the complex

          We had the same problem as I wanted to go shopping at the Marina and my husband wanted to go visit a sick friend. Result I couldn't go shopping. There are many reasons why I could not recommend this establishment.
