This place is located on a hill overlooking the ocean. So beautiful! The beach is a rocky, private, rustic beach full of beautiful stones and warmish water. We only stayed one night but we sat on the porch after eating a home cooked meal and watched the sunset, and later, the moonrise, thinking this was a slice of paradise. The room is lovely, very much like a cabin. There is no staff after 7 pm and the office never answered their phone, so we had to walk over if we wanted something. We made sure we took care of everything before 7 ! Also, the staff never arrived until 9 am. It didn't bother us but it's good to know. Something else good to know, especially if you are a light sleeper- At 3am the fisherman drove right past our cabin on the way to their fishing boats and every one of them hit a big pothole which was like a crash! Not good! Also, no wifi! I had to sit on the porch at the office to check our next travel. Not great! For one night, with perfect weather, this was beautiful. But for the price, the lack of wifi and the 3am traffic we probably wouldn't go back.
