We definitely have a 3rd person for the birthday trip in June so that changed my seach criteria a little.
I had actually thought it would just be the two of us so I inquired about an oceanview studio at Alex. It was a rental agency rep that responded and when I told him I needed a bigger unit, he offered me an incredible deal for a 2 BR garden cottage at Somerset. It's more than we need with 3 levels, a dining room, living room and full kitchen but the rate is hard to pass up. But it's still more than the ballpark figure I gave my friend. So we have to discuss it. If we don't stay there though, it will likely be OCW. The rates at Alex for a bigger unit aren't that much cheaper than the Somerset deal so if we do it, we'll go all the way.
The other option is just to stay at Sibonne or Comfort Suites because they are way cheap. And on vacation we only really use the room to shower and sleep so may as well use the saving toward extra excursions right?
Ugh. I do't know what to do. How do Sibonne and CS compare?
