We rented unit Q1 in front of the beach. The apartment had a fully equipped kitchen (CLEAN), fridge (CLEAN),one bathroom with tub (CLEAN), and small living room area with a flat screen TV with satellite TV, and a main room with a queen (not so comfy but ok) and a full bed. The apartment faced the ocean through a door that leads to a terrace equipped with a hammock and a dinning table. On top of that, there is a small front yard were you can have sunbathing sessions and next to it there is a grill if you want to grill some locally fished snapper. Cost was not really expensive ($150/night) considering that three people can stay here comfortably and just walk a few steps to the ocean, and really once you get there you don't want to leave, it is just beautiful and you have a soothing ocean breeze constantly. All these apartments are located in a quiet and safe neighborhood so that is a big plus. And if you want to go an have a cocktail in front of the ocean just walk five minutes west through the beach and go to the bar of Villa Montaña.
