We stayed two nights in room number 5. I would have loved one of the nicer rooms I think, but we had a couple of issues with our room. First off, room 5 is on the bottom floor right next to the back door. If anyone is staying there that likes to sit out on the patio later in the evening, this can be a problem. We went to bed around 10 (we were getting up for the sunrise at 4:30 AM) and we could clearly hear people talking on the back porch for a while after we went to bed. The other thing that we noticed is that you cannot turn off the porch lights. the 2nd night, no one was on the porch, but the lights were very bright right outside the window. We closed the blinds and the curtains, but our room was still so bright you could walk around with no issues. I tried to go turn them off myself, but there was a bracket on the switch preventing this. We noticed they turned off sometime between 2 and 3. I woke up several times because it was so bright there.
The 2nd issue we had, which was minor, was no tv at all in the room. We were there for hiking and outdoor activities, so it wasnt that big of a deal. We were just a little surprised since that wasnt mentioned anywhere (unless I just missed it when booking, which is a possibility). Overall not a big deal, just felt it should be mentioned when booking.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay there. The hosts were very friendly and breakfast was awesome (we only had breakfast once, the other day we were up too early). The view off the back porch is amazing. I really enjoyed waking up the 2nd day there and going down to the beach to watch the sunrise all by myself. It was so calm and peaceful. Also, pearly, their dog, is awesome. She is so friendly. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again, just definitely not in room 5.
