Loved how close it was to the beach, it was lovely and quiet. It was an experience we will never forget & will definitely be coming back, and have already been recommending it to other people.

Very friendly service, clean and tidy surroundings in a good location. Great views of the beach from our self contained unit. There were holes in a couple of walls behind doors, rusty knife in the knife block, metal blinds were very dusty, the list goes on....

Nice little gem very quiet and close to airport. The place as old but still worth the visit. We stayed in 17 and we could enjoy the ocean breeze every morning while enjoying a cup of coffee.
