Fabulous location by the beach Good to have a 3 bedroom house with private rooftop spa House 6 was clean as far as daily cleaning goes but needed a spring clean Our guest couldn’t sleep one night as there was a rooftop party opposite well into the morning. House had everything we needed for a long weekend. Good to have the double garage for unloading.

Exceptional place to stay. Has everything you can ask for is you are looking for an apartment. Excellent WIFI and very handy for most locations. Centrally located for the activities we wanted to do. The only negative was caused by noisy people, but not the fault of the hotel so do not let that detract away from the enjoyment of what this place has to offer.
