Dear christophercL6331PM Thank you for staying in our penthouse and for the review. We're in the process of upgrading the cosmetic stuff during the low season. The cleaners do wash the dishes but they only service the rooms once a day, we will in the future request that they check on the penthouse before they leave. We do state on all websites that 'we have no lift' and the apartments are accessible by stairs only, this unfortunately is not going to change. We're happy that overall you had a pleasant stay. Kind regards Florence

The Place on the Bay Apartments are directly on the beach and very good for families. The interior is nicely and the rooms spacious. The bathroom is quite old and could be renovated. George and his wife from the Frontdesk are very nice and helped us with everything we need.

Front of office staff especially Marian were excellent. Apartment was good and clean and location including secure parking were great. Recommend having two sets of keys for apartments rather than just one.
