We were two couples, staying in two units here. My understanding was that there was a double bed in both units, but on arrival, our friends found they were in a unit with twin beds and bunks. We offered ours, but they graciously let my husband and myself have the unit with the double and twin, as they were age 82 and 77, so snuggling wasn't quite as important. There was also a delay in getting our second unit, which we got at 5 pm. I was forewarned about the extra power charge, and it wasn't much, though we did a lot of cooking. After all, it was July, and a Highland heat wave, at that (around the low 70's, some days!). This was an RCI trade for our two-bedroom lockout unit in Las Vegas, and I am very satisfied with it, over all.\, and would come back.
The units were well equipped, allowing us to do a good bit of cooking, and having the Tesco in easy walking distance (shopping bag in the unit closet) was handy, especially after we found the "back way" in! Having a balcony was very nice, as well. The one thing that was odd was everything electric in the bathroom operating by pull-cords, but we got used used to it.
Be warned that if you are not used to European washing machines, it will take forever and a lot of frustration to figure out the machine in the free laundry room. It might benefit from an instruction card. What should have been a simple process turned into an ordeal, as I tried to do laundry after 5 pm (laundry room shuts at 7pm), as the washer was very hard to understand and there was no one in the office at that hour. Still, it was nice to have free machines.
People have remarked on traffic noise. We live in a city, so I was aware of the quiet atmosphere, occasionally disturbed when a car would drive by on the highway at night! Contrast, I guess. At home, there is a background hum that never goes away...
