The apartment was very cute and functional for a beach vacation. It is perfect for one or two people with plenty of room and storage for extended stays. It is very convenient to the beach, restaurants, market, and hiking trails. I did not have a car so not sure about the ease of parking. There are lots of steep stairs so luggage hauling and entry is not for everyone. The privacy and quiet is a good trade-off since you are not on a busy street. The costumer service was very friendly and convenient. A standard coffeemaker would make the kitchen rating great. I felt very safe with the keyed entry and being on the upper floor, I left my windows open. The intimacy and smaller crowds in Tamariu made it much more desirable than the larger towns nearby. Have not been back long enough to get my deposit so do not know the timeliness on that. I would return in the future!
