We think our cleaners do good work here, and we're updating our amenities as we speak! On a nice day, walking to town is possible either on the sidewalk or the beach. On a winter's day... we would suggest driving. We hope to see you again soon. Best,

I loved how close to the beach this place is , all i could hear all night long was crashing waves , the small zoo they have was very cool as well and would be great for the kids. Im not sure who the Black and white cat belongs to but it was super friendly

Hi there, Thank you for your review! Yes, we agree that the sound of the waves is a great way to go to sleep. Our 4-legged friends are usually a big hit with the youngsters, including the cat. His name is Ender, and he loves meeting all the guests! We hope to see you again sometime. Best,
