Great stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a little overpriced considering we were charged a cleaning fee and no one came to clean. If we stayed at a hotel we wouldn’t have been charged a cleaning fee at all and our rooms would be cleaned each day. I think for the $180 we paid per day, a cleaning fee in addition should be unnecessary.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving us a review! Just wanted to clarify the cleaning fee charged on HomeAway homes and all vacation rentals are to clean the house after your stay. Townhomes are much larger than hotel spaces and therefore require 2-4 hours to clean and do laundry. Hope this helps clarify the confusion, we loved having you and hope you visit us again. Regards, Mark and Carmen

Very nice town house. Perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

The town house was perfect for our needs and very clean. Great for families. Property managers Carmen & Mark were easy to work with and very friendly (spoke only with Carmen during our stay). Little Harbor has everything you need to have fun in the sun and have a peaceful, relaxing time. Easy to check in, although I would recommend the pass code to access the town home be emailed or texted the day of check instead of having to call and obtain over the phone just prior to arrival.

Water at beach was not good (more like a lake beach), but we didn't come for the beach. If we wanted a nice beach we could have paid 2-3 times more for a good beach, but it probably would have been crowded and not as peaceful and relaxing as Little Harbor area. Pools were nice and other facilities e.g. restaurants etc were good. We came for the location and convenience to other family members close by. We had a wonderful mini family reunion.

Would stay here again. Thanks to the property managers and the owners for a lovely visit.

This condo looks a lot nicer!

  • 1 of 5

This is the condo we inquired about but the company put is in another property. NOTHING like this property. The manager who let us in could do nothing about it. The booking company is not answering their phone!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This condo was ideal for my family. The condo was clean and provided everything that we needed. The beach was perfect and the pool was a great temperature. The review does say that the one bedroom offers a king bed but it was more like a queen bed. Otherwise it was great and we will rent this property again
