We only had a few days to stay this trip, but it was at the end of a longer vacation and we were glad for the quiet atmosphere and convenience of being able to walk to beach, pool, restaurant and bar … More
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We didn't realize the ice cube trays were missing from the freezer and have corrected that. They are working on the WIFI. In meantime you can get it at the office. Also there is a public computer with printer at the office.

Thomas (chap) arrived as a guest and left as a friend.
We enjoyed his company and his outgoing personality. He was always courteous, respectful and optimistic in dealing with the quirks of island living. He also left the apartment super clean which we greatly appreciated.
People like chap renew our enthusiasm for meeting new people
from different parts of the country/world through our rental.
We hope to see him again soon.

We had a couple of issues... Ants, no sheets for the hideabed, stained towels, etc. We got past those after 24 hours, well, not the ants. But unfortunately, it was the attitude of the owner and loca… More
I am sorry your stay was not as you expected. The maids are not aware of how many are staying in this unit but I am glad they provided you with sheets you needed. I also have an exterminator that comes once a month. I have stayed in this unit for months at a time. The bath towels were never stained. Possibly the kitchen towels were unfortunately we cannot control what our guests use our towels for I would hope they would respect our things as this is not a hotel. We try really hard to make this unit affordable and do our best to keep up with guests destruction. Thank you so much for letting us know about your experience.
The condo was large (maybe about 1000 square feet) direct beach access with a locking gate from the patio to the beach.. The kitchen was well equipped plus washer and dryer. Only 5-10 minutes from "d… More
Good eye! You are exactly right. It is 1,000sq ft exactly inside and 200 sq outside for the porch! I hope you had a chance to have brunch right next door at The Golden Rail! Thanks for being a great guest!
