Left on 03/06/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | OdiemaeReviewed Mar 6, 2014Stayed Feb 2014
Loved the spaciousness of the unit and the gorgeous view. Unit accommodated two couples fairly well although it is ideally set up for a family situation; twin beds in one room with a small guest bathroom. Master bedroom/bath was large, as was the kitchen. Unit well stocked with kitchen supplies but, linens were a little tired. It was nice to have a washer/dryer in the unit and when I called the office letting them know that the washer didn't seem to be extracting the water, they sent a repairman out that very day.
Good location but, beware the traffic in February and March - nonstop in both directions on the island most days.
Overall - was pleased with the unit and would consider staying there again. Read more
