This was an awesome and quaint place for myself , wife and 91/2 month old baby girl. Our arrival time was quite late into the evening , but we kept incontact with Nestor( who manages the property) who give us excellent instructions upon arrival. It is as pituresque as the pictures posted. The exterior of the property disguises a trailer very well. The landscape is puncuated with bougainvillea plants , coconut trees ( within your hands reach)and various tropical brush. The deck is as pictured , with a hammock and a fish cleaning area . The tiki hut has a lighted fan a bbq gas grill; and a table with chairs. . The lounge chairs are present and yes they are facing the waterway. We brought our own umbrella, the property does not have one but has a base for it. He living room views are amazing! Especially watching daybreak .You can watch the tide come and go and plan your fishing day steps away.. The kitchen had all we needed to cook the crabs we bought and the fish we caught. Cold fridge and clean.The living area is not exactly child proof , but we knew that and brought a day crib which solved our problem. The T.V and furniture is dated but did the job for a 4 day stay. All lights worked where needed , included outside . Since its a gated property this security was not a major concern .Bed was same as the sofa.. A.C did its job cold . Bath was good with excellent hot water... Sometimes a bit too well. Wifi worked but was slow at times. Pool was close by within the community , only 4ft depth heated and jets which did its job well for us. Shoping is close by within a few miles for windixie ,bait ect. The fish house is excellent and the hideout for breakfast! We cooked most of our meals and enjoyed the property.
Now for the not so good stuff.
1. Mosquitoes! Bring all your
good stuff, thermacell , Deepwood deet40 , buy all you can afford! You will need it for the outdoors if the wind is not blowing. I live in FL , but this was unbearable!
2. Very musty smell of the linens provided for the bedding ..
3. A.C vents and ceiling need to be cleaned for dust. Living room A.C could use a replacement , due to the fact at peak daytime heat it struggles to maintain cold air on lowest settings, but later in the day it gets better. Note it was not a major concern , we are FL residents.
For only only three things that I could think of as negative , one which the owners can not control due to nature , we would recomend this to those who love camping but enjoy certain comforts. Perfect for couples and no for family with younger kids. Remember it is cheaper to stay here than at a nearby hotel and you get to enjoy all of the above mentioned.
