Great location for a good price

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this condo/home on more than once. This is our first time in this specific condo/suite. We love that it is right next to the beach with beautiful views. We have enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the ocean sunset on more than one night. We also love that it has a little yard area for our son to play in and bbq. The house is equipped with everything you could need. The house is a little small but for our small family of 3 it was a perfect fit. The only thing that I feel needs to be changed is that the windows do not have screens on them, so we were unable to enjoy the ocean breeze through the house when our son was awake because it was far to dangerous without a screen on the window

Quirky and Cozy with a Great View

  • 4 of 5

While the apartment was definitely quirky, we were very comfortable and grateful for the trip- would book again.

We stayed in the Whale Watching Suite #5. We went as a foursome, one couple stayed on the pull out bed, one in the bedroom. The pull out mattress is much more comfortable if you take it out of the couch and put it on the floor. But we're low maintenance folks so it wasn't a big deal to us. The kitchenette is a great feature, though tiny. The fireplace and thermostat kept us nice and warm. Bedding and towels were clean and comfortable. Would love to come back when it's less rainy and spend more time in the backyard.

The view from the apartment and from the hot tub were both lovely. Connie was super friendly and accommodating.

Absolutely LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

OUTSTANDING Experience!!!!!!!!!!!

The view from our room was directly across from the beach!! The room was sooooo cute and felt just like home! It wasn’t to big but not to small, simple and cozy at the same time!

The hot tube was the selling point! BUT what really made this trip amazing was Connie and her team! Sweet and hard-working people! Thank you for this great experience and we can’t wait to come again.

Cozy and great location

  • 5 of 5

Very much better than a hotel. We could cook our own food in the kitchen or use the bbq in the courtyard. Jetted tub in the bathroom and hot tub overlooking the ocean was a big plus. Great location with easy beach access and shops were a short walk away with coffee, Mexican food and chocolate. Connie was great host even mailing a stuffed animal back to us my daughter left never asking for anything in return. Would definitely stay there again.
