We spent five nights in this property, renting both bedrooms, and had a great time. We loved the location, being only steps away from the boardwalk. We didn’t realize how much we would enjoy the boardwalk because we could be at the beach without having to actually be on the sand. There were plenty of places to sit in the shade, the beach was very wide, and the water was comfortable without a strong current. So, the location was optimal for us. The bandstand and center of the boardwalk was about a 1 mile walk. The Thai restaurant (.4 miles away) was a place we visited three times. We also loved the property’s outside space. We sat on the front porch and the side terrace many times, really enjoyed the cool breezes, and you could even see the water/beach! The big grill was great and we had a nice evening cooking outside. Each room has an AC unit and ceiling fan but we rarely used them. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. However, be aware that if you rent the second bedroom, you must walk through the first bedroom (or go outside and around) to get to the second bedroom. The fully stocked kitchen is very small but just fine for basic cooking and it worked great for us. The living room is a good size with a small TV. The parking pad right next to the unit made it easy to access our car. This is a good rental for someone wanting a more traditional, homey, low key place, which is exactly what we wanted. Don’t expect the Westin or high end furnishings. It’s great price for a relaxed, unfussy place to enjoy the beach.
Ana lives across the street and checked in with us multiple times to make sure we were ok. We did have a little trouble finding the right connection and password for the wifi (the signal is rather weak) but worked it out after a couple of days. We’d recommend providing more specific instructions and guidelines (e.g., Internet) within the unit rather than having to contact and wait for the owner to respond. Long term, more updated/comfortable living room furniture and better lighting would make this an even nicer place to stay. Even so, we’d still return and had a great time.
