We have the family room with one queen bed and two twin beds. I will honor the 2016 rate, $225 per night plus 12% tax. We don't have a/c, but the room has two desk fans and two windows, a flatscreen tv, wifi, small fridge and microwave. Roberta Black. 3105101070

"Ask the owner for tips on restaurants...we took their advice for dinner and breakfast, both we're awesome!"
"They all seemed fine."
"All the rooms are good, besides the fact you would and should be in them very little time while visiting the Island.:>)"
"From what we read we asked for a quieter room and Roberta obliged us. We're seniors so we don't party at night."
"See my review regarding the stumble room..."
