A nice place to stay very quiet, clean and I would stay again

Pleasant but poorly located
The room was well equipped and comfortable but the location was poor. There were no shops or restaurants in that bay. Everything was in the North Bay ...........a drive away.

Quiet,spacious, and well equipped. Friendly. South beach,away from the bustle of the town.

Fine for a motel
We were slightly confused by the name of the place and were expecting something more cottage-like rather than a motel with a bigger kitchen... Perfectly fine though, just a shame as we would have happily paid more for something more upmarket. I think we also had the plainest room (no fireplace etc). WiFi was good!

A Quiet Spot
The only issue one might have with this very clean and comfortable place is the "wet" bathroom. The shower wets the entire floor. Otherwise, it's excellent value in a quiet location.
