My family and I stayed here for the full Ironman race in 2014. It is about a 10-15 minute drive to the transition area. The unit is a 2 minute walk from Rue de Saint-Jovite which is on the bike course. This part is the "downtown" area and is a great place to cheer. It's also VERY easy to get from the swim start to the bike and back to the run course as there is a free public transportation shuttle stop literally around the corner.
The property is exactly as described and was exceptionally clean and comfortable. We were able to cook and grill very easily. The owner was very responsive to a few questions that I had during my stay. I highly recommend this property to athletes visiting for any of the triathlons. When I did the half ironman I stayed in the pedestrian village and found it to be loud (there was LOUD music playing until 9:15pm the night before the race) and busy. I truly enjoyed the relaxed area that this property is in. It's also an excellent value!
