Awesome location and perfect for our family of 4!We loved being steps away from Baby Beach - great place to watch the sunset. The home was well stocked and comfortable. Very peaceful. "

"July Poipu Vacation
Nice home with everything you need for stay, very clean and decorated with island style, beach access is great too. Only complaint is there is only one bedroom and a small nook, says it sleeps six maybe ok for two adults and 4 children. Other than that I would highly recommend staying st the Hale Malania "

"Relaxing Family Retreat
Hale Malanai was a special treat for our family of 5 (kids: 12, 15, 18). We visited the island many times prior and this is our favorite place to stay! This home was so beautifully and comfortably decorated, there was a little taste of Hawaiian/island living throughout. It was so nice to have so many kitchen supplies, appliances, and cookware to be able to cook at "home"! A true beach bungalow for sure with all the windows offering a gentle ocean breeze, gorgeous views and natural light. Somedays we were perfectly content staying "home" and enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of Kauai and playing endless games of Banana Grams! At night we enjoyed watching a movie from their library of Kauai-made movies (Blue Hawaii, Jurassic Park, Soul Surfer...) The proximity to Baby Beach was a plus (40 steps to the sand!) Everything we needed to enjoy a day at the beach was provided (chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear, body boards...) Hale Malanai will be a special place where memories were made for our family. We hope to return! "

"Unbeatable Location
Very spacious and well-stocked with everything you need for a great vacation. The lanai was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views, and the beach is right across the street.

Unfortunately the bbq was not working during our stay so we couldn't take advantage of outdoor cooking. Also, be aware that this home is frequented by the neighborhood cats, in case anyone in your group has allergies."

"Perfect for Families
We had a wonderful experience in this home—even saw whales from the front porch. We hope to return next year. "

"4 nights in paradise
As soon as we opened the door we felt like we were at home. It is a warm, thoughtful rental, fully loaded with all you need. Manager responded quickly to questions we had. Great to have beach things to use - chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards. The outdoor shower helps to keep the sand out of the house. Bedrooms aren't private, but wasn't an issue for us. The walls in master don't go all the way to the ceiling. The beds were GREAT! 2nd bedroom nook, super cozy. Didn't use the murphy bed in sitting area but mattress looked thick and comfortable.Loved that the owner had food for the feral cats. Was nice they came to visit. Great ocean breeze with a wrap around porch - lots of sitting areas. Baby Beach right across the street..ran down every night for sunset, super easy - a small, but beautiful beach. The club you have access to is a quick drive with lots of amenities. Used it a few times. Stay in this house (but not when I want to go back!!) Really a nice rental. Lots of room to spread out."

"Great Location
Literally 10 steps to Baby Beach. Amazing to sit on the Lanai in the morning drinking your tea and just listening to the water and birds. "
Dec 03, 2018 - , Concord, CA

"Loved our stay at Hale Malanai!
We’ve stayed on Hoona Road a couple times but this was our first time at this property and it’s by far our favorite! We love the location as It’s just a few steps from Baby Beach and walking distance to the best restaurants and shops in Poipiu! The house is so spacious, cute and very clean! We spent most of our time on the lanai listening to the waves and enjoying the ocean breeze! We hope to be back next year! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!"

"Beautiful house with ocean view
Outstanding rental. Spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated with a porch and 3 sides of the house. We will be back"

"Great location!
We loved our stay here. This home was very clean and walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Beach across the street was gorgeous. House provides chairs, umbrellas and boogie board. Would be nice to have bikes.
We didn't want to leave! "

"Perfect Kauai Vacation!!!
Stayed at Hale Malanai with my husband, daughter, son in law and 2 year old grandson!!! It was perfect in every way! Steps to Baby Beach made taking a toddler to the beach So easy ! Location to shops and restaurants was great and the house was breezy and cool with great view, feeling of privacy and extremely well stocked with everything you could need ! Can't wait to return!!!"
Jun 26, 2018 - pamela e., Carlsbad, CA

"Loved our stay
Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highlights of the property were the fully stocked kitchen(!) the outdoor cats, and baby beach across the street! Would absolutely recommend this property to others. "
Jun 06, 2018 - Natalie C., Saratoga, CA

"Very nice place and great location
We stayed for a week and enjoyed hanging out at this place. Baby beach is right across the street.

Great house for a couple, or possibly two couples. Quiet time somewhat limited due to half walls. Great property and perfect location for long walks and hikes.

Mar 08, 2018 - Jim A., Gilroy, CA

"Perfect spot
This was a wonderful quiet spot (but still close to shops and restaurants) to have for a home base to enjoy touring Kauai. We loved having our morning coffee on the deck watching the surf and taking a cocktail to the beach to celebrate the sunset. The house is charming, very well stocked and spotlessly kept. We would enthusiastically recommend Hale Malanai to anyone visiting the island. "
Mar 08, 2018 - Marilyn G.

"Amazing Rental!!!
LOVE this house! We stayed for 7 nights with our family - my husband and I, our 2 young kids, and my parents. You cannot beat the location... literally less than a minute and you're on Baby Beach - perfect for little ones to splash and dig and have a blast without having to worry too much. The neighbors were a hoot, and very helpful with hints on places to visit and things to do. Only thing to note about this house is that it is very open - walls don't go up to ceiling (except in bathrooms), so noises carry. Overall, an enthusiastic 5 stars!!!"

"Artistic and well-appointed
Hale Malanai is an artistic and well-appointed home with a cosy little beach right across the street."

"Wonderful accommodations, great location, professional management
We booked Hale Malanai in Poipu for 17 nights in August 2017. We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay and were impressed with the comfortable and comprehensive accommodations. Everything went smoothly thanks to the professional management of Poipu 365, as we were greeted with beautiful Hawaiian music, flowers and a welcome letter, and they were always very accessible for questions and advice. Hale Malanai was stocked with everything we needed to get started and experience our home away from home. The location is perfect for beaches, Waimea Canyon, restaurants, and shopping. All our in home meals were held out on the Lanai in the fresh open air, but we could have easily eaten inside around the spacious dining room. We were especially impressed with the kitchen gadgets and appointments, with everything a gourmet chef would require. We relished the beautiful ocean view, and retiring for the evening with the sound of waves lulling us to sleep."
Sep 02, 2017 - Richard R., Tempe, AZ

A really wonderful house. We enjoyed the lovely deck in the evenings loved the extra equipment for the beach. We saw a sea turtles and the kids had a great time in the bay. I definitely recommend. "

"Feeling Aloha at Hale Malanai
We stayed 3 nights at Hale Malanai in June with our two teen boys. The home is very comfortable and private. We enjoyed relaxing on the patio and the short walks across the street to Baby Beach. The surf was very wild, but Baby Beach was protected and the boys were able to do a little snorkeling.
Hale Malanai has all the comforts of home and made our first few nights in Kauai very special.

Jul 09, 2017 - Stacey R., Pleasanton, CA

"Family stay
The house was in a great location, feet from baby beach. That was great for small children. The second bedroom was very warm since it was in the sun and had no cross breeze. We did not find the large fan until the last day. And the street light shines in that room. "
May 26, 2017 - Alexander H., anchorage, ak

Where do I begin?! The house was like our own little tree fort overlooking the ocean. And by little we had 3 adults and one child and easily could have had 3 more people with us comfortably. Amenities were spot on. Everything you need for cooking, entertaining, laundry. The location is nothing short of amazing. It was not only clean but it felt as if we were home. Not only would I recommend this property to others, I already have. I truly hope to return one day soon!!"
Mar 08, 2017 - Chelsea K., Oakland, California

"Fantastic Rental on Hoona Rd
We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas 2016 and had a wonderful experience at Hale Malanai. We were not sure what the interior would be like and it surpassed our expectations.The decor was very nice and the fact that the plantation style ceiling did not allow for total room separation was fine for our family with 3 adult children in their 20's. The kitchen was stocked with excellent small appliances and we cooked all but one night in the house . Barbecue was in great working order and again just like home.
The view was unexpected. Because this house is elevated we were able to see over the oceanfront homes and have a really good Oceanview.
Our whole family could sit outside on the wrap around Lanai and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings. Baby beach was a favourite as we could wonder over with all the locals to enjoy the sun or sunset. Really lovely and we hope to be back again."
Jan 06, 2017 - Sheila R., Calgary, Ab

"A jewel
Of all of the places that we (a family with 2 adult daughters) have been around the world, this one is our favorite. From the first second we felt like visiting the home of good friends. The place is just perfect, obviously not some standard house/condo but the home of someone with a love for detail who simply allows others to stay there. There is really nothing more we could wish for and we loved every day."
Aug 23, 2016 - Uwe S., Zurich, CH

"Wonderful family vacation
we had an incredible time with our family in what callled the Tree House. The location is perfect close to beaches, shops. The free flowing breezes pretty much all day is a relief from the humidity. The kitchen was well stocked we didn't have to buy a full spice for any marinades it was all in the cupboard much appreciated. The washer and dryer was an added bonus so we didn't have to pack as much and we could still have clean clothes. My only suggestion is get more comfortable mattresses. They were very uncomfortable. Overall our stay was fabulous and we are returning next year!"
Aug 23, 2016 - Darryl W., Trabuco Canyon, CA

"Wonderful visit
Great house where you feel like you are staying with friend. Great location right off Baby Beach. Home is well stocked and very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Everything was in tip top shape and very clean. "
Aug 04, 2016 - Michael N., San Diego, CA

"Amazing stay in Poipu
Our stay was wonderful! The house was fantastic and even better than in the photos with a lot of space, well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds.
It also had a lot of warmth and character with all of the tasteful Hawaiian touches and decor."
May 06, 2016 - Donna D., Burlington, Ontario

We stayed a week with our three young adult kids. There are many great things about Hale Malanai, the best being that we always looked forward to returning after daily excursions. Location is a close and easy walk to stores and restaurants, snorkeling, and Baby Beach. Not much privacy at all in second bedroom, would not work for non-family groups."

"A lovely stay on the south shore
Great location, totally accurate from photos, clean, spacious, well-appointed home. Lots of thoughtful details (make sure to read their book of hints). Loved our time here."

"Kauai Vacation
As a family we travel frequently and have stayed at many different vacation rentals, and I can honestly say this location is one of the very best. The house isn't large or fancy, but it's the perfect size for a family of five. But what really makes this stand out is the service! The owners obviously care about your comfort and have through of everything (there were even bug spray, sunblock, and many toiletries on hand for your stay). The owners have placed local guides and a intro to the local community in the living room to help you plan your activities. If you drink alcohol (we don't drink but we did think it was a kind gesture On their part) they even have a fun "take a bottle, leave a bottle" wine rotation game for anyone that wants to participate. The view from the breakfast table and deck allowed us to eat our cereal while watching the waves on the beach and the spouts and maneuvers of humpback whales offshore. Also the neighbors are an elderly retired couple that look about 30 years younger than they really are and they are some of the sweetest folks around. You simply cannot go wrong with this rental. Also, we had a small issue with one of the toilets while we were there and the management company was on it right away, they are polite and professional in how they handle their guests, I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a perfect family or couple getaway on baby beach."

Great quiet escape with all the amenities you could ever think of needing!"

She has thought of everything, house is so well stocked, very clean , out performed her description. Overall , well worth the money and then some. Perfect. No complaints, thank you so much. Because of your home and thoughtfulness we created memories that we will cherish for a lifetime!"
Dec 17, 2015 - , Coeur D Alene, ID

Perfectly in line with the description on the website. Very clean, bright. A special mention for the kitchen which is a real chef atelier with everything you could dream about to make French cuisine. You really feel like Hale Malanai is your second home.20 meters from the sea. 100 meters from a surf spot. "

wonderful house. we loved being across from the beach and walking distance to many things. the house is well maintained and welcoming. Pictures are an accurate representation of the house. "

"Beautiful Beachfront Property - Close to everything
Beautiful house - great location, close to lots of restaurants, the beaches. Wonderful thoughtful hosts. Would definitely recommend this house to others. We really loved the wrap-around lanais. "
Jul 23, 2015 - Debra S., Gaithersburg, MD

"Hale Malanai May 2015
The home was very clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. Cute and welcoming! You can hear the waves and birds which was lovely. Lots of nice windows and sliding doors to open have a nice breeze come through the home. Nice bathrooms and our son enjoyed the outdoor shower at the end of a day surfing. There are lots of books/games to enjoy. Great location to walk to Baby Beach and Kekuila Shops. Our son loved the bi-fold doors feature that he could close and then have his own living space. Only possible improvements would be to upgrade the televisions for those rainy days when you have to stay in or to watch a movie in the evening and to upgrade to a kingsize bed in Master bedroom."
Jun 18, 2015 - , CALGARY, Alberta

"Perfect Stay in a Perfect Home
Hale Malanai was more than we expected. Well-located in a safe, family-friendly neighborhood. An easy 50 yards from Keiki beach. Great neighbors (Joe and Selma). Very clean, very well-equipped, and already very missed by my family. We hope to be back someday! "

"Kaui vacation March 2015
We loved Hale Malanai! It was perfect for the two of us. Kitchen well equipped.Very nice touches such as pre loaded iPad, beach chairs, coolers, blender, and even good beach towels. Even became friends with the neighbor, Joe who is a 6 month resident. Counting the days until we can return. Only thing I would like to see upgraded is a larger TV and possibly a king sized bed.
Mar 12, 2015 - Mark K S., Southlake, TX

"Family Stay in Poipu
We have been to Kauai many times but this was our first time renting a house. We loved it. This rental had many special touches to make you feel home - like a wine exchange with 6 bottles waiting for you spin arrival honor system to replace. Steps from beach with beach gear to use for the kiddos. Lots of seating areas. Highly recommend "
Feb 06, 2015 - Sabrina S., Frankfort, IL

"nice holiday home
nice place close to the beach. house is well furnished and can accommodate 6 guests (a family). don't expect much privacy as the internal partition doesn't reach the ceiling so there is no noise insulation internally. it is not suitable for 2 couples"
Jan 17, 2015 - , Seaforth, New South Wales

"Fabulous rental!
Staying at Hale Malanai made for a fabulous vacation for my family of 4 (kids ages 6 and 2). There was plenty of room for sleeping, playing, cooking, eating, parking (!). The location is great for walking to the nearby shops, and of course to the beach across the street (saw sea turtles having breakfast off shore). "
Jan 16, 2015 - , Delano, MN

"Rent this one!!
A perfect place to stay while on Kauai! Rent it! Home had everything we needed from boogie boards to beautiful views to comfortable beds. House was spotless! One of the best things? --sharp kitchen knives! Not many rentals have good utensils but Hale Malanai did and we were able to make many delicious meals there. (simple things, I tell you!). Well-stocked spices and dry goods, available small appliances, etc. --just like home!
Well located to Baby Beach (50 paces away!), shops, grocery store, etc. Neighbor Joe was a plethora of information which was great, as we took advantage of many activiites to do.
Quiet road, calm neighborhood, perfect for strolls.
Rent it!!
Can't say enough "good" about this place."

"A bit disappointing
This is a delightful little house on a fairly quiet street. Unfortunately there were many broken things when we arrived. I did report about eight items to the property manager and they sent a handyman over the very next day to fix a couple of them. Hopefully the rest will be fixed eventually. Otherwise the house is really great. Walking into the bedroom and finding the main light switch broken off and just a metal piece to move up and down to turn on/off the light is irritating. Sink nozzle broken, no ceiling fans or slatted windows for air flow so opening windows in daytime is important. House needs all windows closed for security at night (their instructions) so can get hot inside. Owner did have two tiny and two large standing fans to help with heat. Unfortunately 3 of the four were broken and the one tiny one did nothing... You get the idea. Great house but I'd suggest a new management company that pays attention to details. We spent the prior week in a Princeville condo where everything worked beautifully so the contrast really stuck out. Wonderful front porch with comfie chairs. Cute furnishings.
Dec 01, 2014 - , Woodside, CA

"Wonderful Beach house
We were so happy the have stayed in Hale Malanai for our Kauai vacation. The owners added so many personal touches to the home. We loved having all the cooking utensils, spices, gas grill, and the available beach gear (mats, chairs, boogie boards). The rotating wine collection is also a nice touch. We loved eating on the lanai and watching the waves roll in. Our other favorite was sleeping in the daybed and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves! There is no A/C but we really only found it to be humid in the late afternoon, by evening things cooled off really fast and there are multiple fans available for use. Staying at the Hale Malanai really added to our absolutely wonderful Kauai vacation. Can't recommend it enough and hope we are fortunate enough to stay their again sometime down the road. "

"Spacious, inviting, beautiful...wish we didn't have to leave!
Aloha! We rented this house for our family of 6. It was exactly as pictured, maybe even a little prettier. The owners care for this home and make you feel very welcomed. This was a wonderful home and the location was perfect. We have kids ages 6-14, the beach across the street was calm and the beaches to the left (PK's, Poipu, Centers) were great for surfing! We got lucky with this rental and so thankful we found this perfect home. We kept thinking how thankful we were that the owners of this home are kind enough to rent it for others to enjoy! We came from FL, but if we ever return to Kauai, this WILL be the spot! LOVED EVERY moment there! Rental company was also great. We had a problem with the safe box, and she came right over. Vicki and Christine were very helpful with helping us select the perfect spot for our family. Mahalo!"

"Beautiful Hale Malanai
My husband and I brought our 9 year old little girl to stay at Hale Malanai in Poipu and we couldn't be happier. The location and distance to the beach was perfect. The home was big and open with a wonderful plantation deck that wrapped around the home. We kept all the windows open when we were home and the breezes that came into the place were lovely. The kitchen was filled with all the greatest cooking utensils, everything worked perfectly. We loved the outdoor shower , the hanging hammocks on the back deck, the lighting throughout was all bright and natural, the parking was spacious. the house provided beach towels and beach chairs and boogie boards. It truly was the perfect place to stay . I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it anybody looking for a place in Poipu."
Jul 24, 2014 - Dianna S., Solana Beach, CA

"The Perfect Vacation Home
Perfect for our family of 5. Great open floor plan, excellent breezes through many doors and windows, fully stocked kitchen, great views from the lanai and super location in close proximity to many Poipu area beaches. "
Jun 15, 2014 - Dan C., Colorado Springs, CO

"Best place we've stayed in Kauai so far.
Hale Malanai was pretty darn perfect. The location was ideal. Close enough to the ocean to see and hear the waves but not so close that it dominated the tranquil setting. Very convenient to the beach (right on the other side of the street!) and shopping. Loved the under house parking. Kept the rental car clean and cool when not in use, which was most of the time. There was absolutely nothing that we needed that this house didn't have. The large outdoor lanai was the best feature of the house. Very comfortable with a wonderful ocean view and lots of privacy courtesy of the well placed landscaping. More ceiling fans inside and some over the outdoor lanai would be a nice addition to this spectacular house. Only regret was not spending more time lounging out on the lanai. May need to schedule a return trip to Hale Malanai to rectify this oversight."
Jun 01, 2014 - , Pasadena, CA

"Wonderful home and location
We loved the large living space. The location was perfect with a lovely view of the ocean between a few rooftops. We hope to visit again soon!"
May 20, 2014 - Jan H., Walnut Creek, CA

"Gorgeous Kauai
When we arrived at the home, we were so surprised how beautiful the grounds were. The house had absolutely everything we needed, even extra sunscreen. We prepared quite a few meals, which we ate on the lanai, and the kitchen was equipped with gourmet utensils, etc. Baby Beach is literally only steps away. We were able to walk to the Poipu shopping center to shop, grab a bite, get coffee or be entertained! What a wonderful trip!!"
May 13, 2014 - Nanette B., Vallejo, Ca

"Hale Malanai is even better than described/shown online.
The overall location, condition and amenities of this property were just outstanding, and a tremendous value having compared other properties we considered and seeing them up close in the neighborhood. The ocean view (a medium slice, framed beautifully), the covered parking (no hot car!), the wrap-around lanai, indoor w/d (top end LGusa brand) and the well stocked kitchen (+++equipment plus deluxe assortment of basic non-perishable ingredients), quick walk for a dip at the sandy beach were tremendous. We were just one couple so having all this space including two full bathrooms was luxurious. With more guests, you'd have to be sure the 'open' floor plan would work - while bathrooms are completely enclosed with walls up to the ceilings, the extra sleeping areas are visually private but are open near the ceiling so sound will travel. Only minor disappointment: gas range and outdoor grill had limited 'highest' BTU power - so it was only adequate for medium-slow cooking, not for searing/high-heat grilling. Re previous guest complaints: for us, no rooster crowing during our stay! "
May 05, 2014 - , San Francisco, CA

"A perfect getaway
We've been to the islands many times and stayed at a variety of properties, but none as lovely or comfortable as Hale Makanai. From the soaring beamed roof, the beautifully stocked kitchen, the impeccable location near the beach to the numerous thoughtful touches like island music on the ipod and binoculars for whale watching, this house is a delight. Surfing, snorkeling, sunset strolls, ziplining: everything is nearby. And yet you can spend hours listening to the surf and the birds and feel like you're on a private island getaway. Highly recommended. "

Christine was always very friendly, professional , and listened to our needs.

"Loved the Hale Malanai
We had a great time at the hale Malanai. The home was beautiful and had everything we needed. Loved the beach chairs, and the kitchen had lots of extras. We can't wait to come back."

"Paradise Found!
We loved this location! It was great to be in a neighborhood vs noisy condo/resort. The proximity to Baby Beach & the view was spectacular! Our only complaint was a screaming child next door, which we understand it out of your control. Luckily it wasn't a daily occurrence."
Mar 31, 2014 - Tracie C., Lynnwood, WA

"Best vacation rental ever!
There were so many positives about this rental. The welcome gift and flowers started it off. While it wasn't directly on the beach, the view of the ocean was wonderful, and the beach was just a few steps away. The kitchen had top of the line appliances, as well as cooking utensils, serving pieces, etc. There were many books about places to see in Kauai. We REALLY appreciated the beach chairs and beach accessories. One of our favorite things to do was relax on the lanai and take in the view. Hale Malanai made our trip to Kauai such a pleasure. The owners really know the true spirit of aloha. Mahalo to them. "
Nov 11, 2013 - Susan R., Copley, OH

"Awesome place
We loved the house. We had 4 women and we all had our own bed. The open concept of the house made it so homey. We spent every morning and every night on the lanai watching the ocean and listening to the birds. You are a lot closer to the beach than the pictures appear. Would definitely stay here again!!!"
Oct 24, 2013 - Shawn C., Green bay, WI

"Roosters? What Roosters?
Enjoyed our stay, in this very nice home.
Our past trips were spent near Brenneke's Beach, and the roosters in the area made certain we were awake by 5:00am every morning. Not good. At Hale Malanai, we had 14 straight quiet mornings, without a single bird issue. This means a lot while on vacation in Kauai.

Great location and great home. Worth every penny."
Oct 04, 2013 - Tris J., Foothill Ranch, CA

"Family Vacation/Wedding
We booked Hale Malanai for a family vacation. After the booking, our daughter and fiancé announced their engagement. Since the house was right across the street from Baby Beach, we made arrangements for them to be married there. It was a wonderful, small, family wedding on the beach, with cake, food and toasts conveniently back at the house. The home suited our gathering perfectly, with plenty of room for entertaining as well as serving trays for the food and enough glasses for everyone. Overall, our family loved the home: cute décor, plenty of room, everything we needed and how can you beat being located right across from the beach??? You can sit on the deck in the back and see the ocean or spontaneously walk right across the street and go for a swim! The outdoor shower helps clean off all the sand before heading back inside. We BBQ'd on the gas grill on the deck, too. Parking is right under the house, which was a plus. Shopping is right around the corner too, which made it very convenient. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We would definitely come here again! "

Excellent property. One of the best places we have ever stayed.

Had trouble getting connected to the internet."

I rented Hale Malanai for my parents visiting me and it was a perfect place for two people. The second bed is really a Murphy bed and the overall design of the place doesn't offer much privacy if there are two couples staying there, but otherwise we were very happy with the house. It has everything you need and more for cooking, great beach access, and very private feeling despite being so close to your neighbors. The management company was very quick to respond to a question we had. We would definitely rent this house or any other property they managed."

"A little bit of Poipu paradise
We had a fantastic stay at Hale Malanai - such a beautiful house and it had everything we needed for our stay.

The location is great - just across the road from the beach, and walking distance to the little shopping area. You can see the sea through the trees, but what you lack in beach front views you definitely make up for in space and comfort. This is a real gem of a place and we'd love to go back."
