I loved this property and it was a perfect relaxing spot. I slept well and enjoyed the quiet. I highly recommend this place. If you stay here and have some mobility issues this may not be the best option. There are steep stairs and the bathtub has a higher ledge. Otherwise a beautiful location and plenty of places to walk for a great view. Please take advantage of Carol's Cab as well.

Terrific place with outstanding view of the water. Close enough to the Downtown area that it was an easy walk. Gina, our host, was easy to access and very helpful. Overall a great experience.

Delightful efficiency with a nice view.
We stayed 7 nights and overall, would rent again. The efficiency is well decorated, clean, comfortable bed with a nice view of the water, watching boats come and go from the balcony. The hot water is shared with the other Suite so there were times we had to wait to shower.
