It had everything we could have wanted, and was so close to the beach. We walked to all kinds of shopping and even the theatre. It is next door to a Denny's for breakfast the first morning after your arrival, and next door to a pub if you need to eat quick before heading to the airport. Cheryl was wonderfully accommodating, giving us a new code to extend our stay until 8:00 on the last day, since our flight was cancelled on our first night, and we lost of day of our trip. I would highly recommend this unit to everyone I know. Thanks Cheryl, you helped to make our honeymoon perfect :-)
