About the Property

Fully Equipped Studio With TV Room And Full Kitchen.

This is a great, cozy, relaxing space. We named it Casita Jamaica, after the word 'Casita' (a tiny house, which is what this charming condo feels like) and 'Jamaica' (which is the Spanish word for hibiscus, a plant that is used in Mexico to make a refreshing iced herbal tea.)

The main living area features a full bed with a spring-loaded storage mechanism that allows you to stow suitcases out-of-the-way and also provides storage space for beach items. The main living area also has a flat screen TV, large wardrobe, 2-person dining table & chairs, and a closet with beach towels, board games, and other goodies.

The kitchen is a galley-style kitchen located off the main living area. It has an apartment-sized stove & oven, a full refrigerator, a microwave, and a sink (sorry, no dishwasher!) Plenty of small kitchen appliances, cookware, and dinnerware is stored in the cabinets and open shelving on either side of the space. There should be everything you need there - even if you wanted to make Thanksgiving dinner!

Past the kitchen is the 'bonus room', an enclosed porch that is used as a miniature living room for the Casita. The bonus room has a loveseat, an airbed that can accommodate 1-2 additional guests, and a desk and TV.)

Calming colors throughout make the space seem even larger, and huge windows plus a skylight ensure tons of light. This rental is located on a quiet, residential pedestrian walkway and is away from the front of the property with its own private entrance.

Because this is a tiny, cozy studio unit, it is best suited for a maximum of two adults. With more than two adults, it gets very crowded!! The place can accommodate up to 2 kids, but again - its a tiny little studio Casita from the 1920s, so it gets very cozy very quickly!

This is a great hotel alternative where you can feel integrated into the beach neighborhood and lifestyle. Unfortunately, the Casita has limited outdoor space - there is a small settee and a little dining set for 2. If you are planning to bring bikes or a lot of beach equipment that needs 'live' outdoors, this would not be the best choice.
