We loved this vacation rental and recommend it to everyone who like to be very close to both the pool and the beach (2 min walk). The courtyard has a beautiful canal view on one side, and you can walk out on the dock.
The apartment is great for a family of 4-5 (or even 6), very well equipped with everything one might need, clean and nice. There are places close by where one can eat and buy basic supplies. This makes it especially easy for families with small kids. That's being said, there are 3 levels, so kids have to be safe on the stairs.
