Hibiscus Cottage
"The bamboo outside of the window of the Bamboo Cottage makes an unnerving sound when the wind blows."
"The Hibiscus Cottage has more windows, so more airflow, but is on the corner by parking, so people walk past more and can hear noise from the pool. Worked well for us"
"More fans in the big house living area. "

"I peeked in several rooms and they all seem nice. "
