It was neat and tidy and equipped with everything we needed. The views outside were amazing. Me and my Fiancé could watch the view of the ocean from the couch and from the bedroom. In general the area is very quiet ideal for a break away from the busy city. I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely be back. "
