In its day I’m sure was quite a great unit- has lost that , unable to open windows without screens, no smoke detector back by bedroom open to outside - difficult for anyone unable to climb high steps to bedroom, to boat at low tide and forget getting to top deck. May be good for young - many good options near for food
