My wife was a little put of by the basic retro nature of this place but by the third night she was willing to throw away a booked ferry to stay another couple of nights..
We stayed in a queen bungalow which was very clean and pleasantly furnished with a 60's feel to it there was no refrigeration but plenty of ice either gratis or for $1 kept our drinks cool. The A/C was more than adequate.
The family were friendly and promptly came to my rescue when I could not open the bathroom door (small button which can be pressed when the door is open will lock it when it is closed)
altogether a nice place to spend a few days.
I would recommend the back porch for dining although we were disappointed with Dajio and the Pizza at Jason's. There was good entertainment every night we were there at the local bars and the fried oysters at Howards pub are great for a snack.
