"My daughters and son paid all expenses for me to celebrate my 70s birthday here. We loved this place and had a wonderful time. Plenty of towels and bedding, along with all the other things promised. We were grateful for the extras, like the little cooler and the boards. Though the rental is a little worn as far as needing paint touch ups, you need to expect that near the beach. My daughters and I loved the roominess and clean, comfortable beds especially. There were condiments and basic spices, etc., along with food items that were fresh. The owner left us a basket of breakfast snacks and coffee too. She is very friendly and helpful. The walk to the beach was short and easy. We watched the sunset on Sunset Beach almost every night. There was plenty of hot water for showers, but each person needs to wait until the other is done due to affecting the water pressure if two tried to shower at the same time.. It wasn't a problem for us. Little geckos kept the mosquitos away. We only saw a few bugs and ants--just needed to keep things in the fridge and sealed in containers in the cupboards. The only drawback for a couple in our party was the roosters waking them up at three and four in the morning. It was later on the days it rained (4:30 a.m.). We kept our windows open, so we could hear the neighbor's dog started barking each night at bedtime, but it wasn't a problem for me personally. We only used the air conditioners for a short time one evening to cool because of the high humidity from the hurricanes we arrived between. The fans were enough through the night the rest of the time as gentle breezes blew through the windows. If you want a true tropical experience, stay here, but go to the crowded city hotels if you cannot handle a few inconveniences of animal noise. At least this place is far enough off of the road where the traffic noises are not a problem and the surf can still be heard. We had fun with the chickens and a old stray cat that visited (though we wouldn't let it in the house). We named the cat Meowee (it didn't really meow or bother us). Clothesline, outdoor shower, hose and washer and dryer were great helps. This place is well stocked for cooking and lacked nothing in the way of convenience. We got my birthday cake at Ted's bakery and it was very rich and delicious. This place is central to everything. Don't miss the Polynesian Cultural Center or Temple and Visitor's Center! Thanks for the fantastic memories!"
