Underwhelming but OK

Pros: I liked the location as everything was in walking distance.
Cons: Heating downstairs to be upgraded, TV and "music stereo" to be upgraded, advertised as luxurious, be we didn't think so.
Location: Location was perfect, walking distance to everything.
we were very underwhelmed with this apartment, we thought we were staying in a 3 storey luxurious townhouse (as advertised), but quickly found out the top floor of the townhouse was residential. The 2 apartments at the front of the townhouse were tiny, and only the bottom & 2nd floor were ours. The outside entertainment area was to be shared between both apartments. The bedrooms and bathroom were down stairs and extremely cold. It is advertised as ocean views, you can barely see the ocean through the vegetation.

Nice place to stay, great location and view.

Accommodation was as expected, neat and clean. But due to the floors being concrete the noise from the room above was a bit of a nuisance. Owner was friendly and helpful.

It is close to the beach but it is a dog beach.

Nice place but the shower water pressure was bad it could do with a coat of paint but all in all was a good place. It's close to the beach but it's not where we swam as it's on the dog beach.
