They only provided a small soap. You should bring your own toiletries. The towel was also not that soft and very thin. If you like a plush towel, you should bring one.

It's a 5 min drive away. It's down the street, down a steep hill so you can walk down (approx 20 min walk) drive , or take the bus for about $1.50 each way
