We had an awesome time staying in the North Shore Cottage. The owners leave a very thick, detailed guide for you so you know exactly where is good to eat, sight see, etc. (as well as helpful info about driving, parking) This was incredibly helpful and made us feel good about venturing all over the island instead of sticking to the resort area. We also rented their 2008 Jeep Wrangler, which made getting around the island a breeze (they parked it at the airport for us, and we left it there when we flew out). The Garmen GPS they provided got us everywhere we wanted to go, easily. The house is fully equipped with everything you need... and a sweet little white puppy greeted us several mornings on the porch! The house faces the desert, instead of the street (you actually drive up onto the back side from the street). Would definitely stay here again!
