Needs a little work
Well, the location was convienient, except for being at a bend in the highway with major traffic sounds.
It took a half hour to get in the front door, because of the old rusty lock box, and rusty locks. When I called owner, he simply assured me it worked, that I just had to pull in while I used it.
He told me to go walk around until he got around to coming by to let us in, in over an hour.
Well, we had just dragged suitcases up 3 flights of stairs and I had melting kids and ice cream, so I kept trying.
I finally got it using all my strength to pull in while jiggling the lock, and I am very strong.
Owner did come grease the lock the next day, which made it open easier.
But my kids were not able to open either door, the back sliding door took emense strength to slide as well.
The back porch had a nice view but there was no screen in the door, or in the windows, and it was very hot, especially being on the 3rd floor, so our choices were between sweltering inside closed doors, or being devoured by mosquitoes for a crack of fresh air. We did plenty of both.
Also the hideabed in the living room was a painful jumble of springs, with garbage and piles of dust under it.
The kitchen was nice, although the only cookware was scratched Teflon, which is very toxic, and many of the dishes were dirty.
This place would be greatly improved by some screens, a futon or comfortable hideabed, and proper cookware, as well as doors that work, of course, and some better cleaning.
Until then, I'd only recomend it to surfers, and surf lovers, it's right next to hookipa!
Definately not suitable for elders, small children, people with disabilities, or women with aesthetics.
