BC Westcoaster Islander
This island paradise was well worth the long trip from Canada's west coast. We were greeted with warm smiles and hugs at the ferry in Green Turtle Cay, by the cottage's owner, Marilyn. She was so friendly and a very caring hostess. Once she showed us the cottage, which is seconds from the ferry wharf, she left us to our own devices. The cottage was wonderful and suited us perfectly. Two clean modern bathrooms, two bedrooms, one with two single beds, and one with a double bed...both comfortable. The screened-in back porch was a nice place to get out of the sun and a pleasant place to sit. The furniture in the living room was overstuffed and comfy, perfect for lounging and reading and yes, there is wifi. There was air-conditioning in all the rooms which is great as you can keep the rooms you want cool. The kitchen was well equipped although having a few condiments on-hand would have been useful. There is a new washer and dryer....a real asset when you only take a small suitcase. You don't need much, as the weather is so good that shorts and t-shirts and flip flops are all you really need. You can rent a golf cart down the street, from Marilyn's Seaside Carts for $50 a day. The cottage is so well located in New Plymouth that a cart is not totally necessary -- but you do need a cart or bike to get to the beaches up the coast. Shortty's is close to grocery stores, next door to one of the liquor stores, and close to the centre of everything. There is a very rich history in this place. We found this cottage the perfect size for the two of us, with enough room that we were not tripping over one another. This cheerful cottage is quiet even though it's right in the middle of town. All the people are friendly, cheerful and polite. To sum it all up, Shorttys was more than adequate and the photos don't really even do it justice but give a fair idea. We will definitely be booking again. Loved it all!
