Great location, average accommodations
First the positives: Loved the location! North shore provided the slow pace we were looking for, close to many of the attractions we went to, an easy commute to the rest, and the condo is only 2 blocks from the ocean. The beach by the condo is quiet with little traffic. And yes, lots of sea turtles. The condo was clean, all made up for us when we arrived and just like the pictures show. The kitchen was well stocked and met our cooking needs. The rental included beach and bath towels and linens for the beds (which were comfortable). It nicely slept our family of four and was within our budget. Now the down side: The complex the condo is located in is poorly managed by the property management. I don't think this is the owner's responsibility, but the building had not been fumigated for a while (the bug problem was more than ants in a tropical area), the roof was poorly kept with broken furniture and junk on it, the lights in the stairwell were burned out and the air conditioner did not work. And this is a condo in a 3 story complex surrounded by neighbors, so if you are looking for peace and quiet forget it. We were kept awake and had to listen to dogs barking, babies crying, and the condo above us being re-tiled during our holiday. There were days we wanted to veg "at home" but went out instead because of all the noise.
