Our First Vacation Rental, Our Honest Opinion.
CONS: I unfortunately have to disagree with a previous review about the apartment being spotless.. the comforters on all beds were stained and looked old and dingy. Also, the apartment is on the second floor of a Vet's office, so when we turned the A/C unit on somehow it started smelling like wet dog all over it. There is no view of the water from the apartment or balcony, neither from the cabana were the hammock and grill are. To get to the beach: Go past the owner's brother apartment next door to ours (he ocassionally hangs out in the balcony for a smoke), descend a flight of stairs, walk past the owners house (next door), walk about 200 steps past the cabana, then a sand pathway up a steep hill, past the nice wood deck, then down hill.
PROS: The apartment has 2 bedrooms and a sofabed, so it may accomodate a fairly large family. It seems to have been updated recently as far as cabinets, furniture and bathroom goes. The kitchen is fully stocked. You can hear the waves from one side of the apartment, its very relaxing specially at night. Seating in the deck you can experience the sound of the waves, the cool breeze and the amazing views. The owners did not mind when we invited a small group of friends over for a BBQ on the deck, which was a plus. And we enjoyed the comfort and safety of having a remote control gate opener to park our car inside the property between the apartment and the the owners home.
Again, we enjoyed the sights and sounds, not so much the scents. Would've loved to be able to see the water from the balcony. And would've preferred newer bedcovers. Didn't really mind the walk to the beach, but thought some people might be interested to know what you could be dealing with. And as stated, was great to have the gate remote controller to take with us when we went out, felt very safe when pulling in the grass driveway. For the price is an OK vacation rental. Next time we will stay somewhere else though.
