Super clean!

Nice condo, very close to the beach. Only issue was climbing the steps with luggage and groceries, an elevator would have been great. Would stay again tho.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am so sorry you had to make the purchase of wash cloths. Although housekeeping should have taken care of this prior to your arrival, if you had called the contact number, washcloths would have been delivered immediately. Toilet rolls are provided in both bathrooms but may not last for the whole stay. There was a polystyrene cooler stored in the guest bedroom closet, along with the other beach items and I can only apologise if it had gone missing. I am pleased 4 stars were still awarded and we would love the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.
