“needs work”
Reviewed January 7, 2006

I booked the LeChateau based on their website and pictures. It is deceiving as it does not really look out to the ocean. I opted to upgrade to the one-bedroom when I arrived as the one room I had rented was in the basement with only a window. The room had obviously been empty for some time as a thin layer of dirt was on all appliances and counters and the floor.

I had a nice balcony but it overlooked the street behind it rather than to the ocean. There was a dog left outside all night right next door, and of course it rained and the dog barked and barked until finally the owner I think let it in for a short time. My sleep was ruined.

The owner is very nice and lives on the top floor, in what I think is advertised as one of the rooms for rent. He told me I could use the Renessance beach before I came so I assumed he had an arrangement with them. Turns out he only has towels that match their's and you cannot go out on the island.

I left after 4 nights and paid him a $200 penalty as it was too isolated for me and I need a beach.

I would recommend to others but be aware there is no beach, its a little pricey for what you get and no maid service. The one bedroom is large and you have a front window so you can leave it open all day
