“Really Enjoyed Our Time There”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed at the condo with my wife, 17 year old daughter and mother-in-law for five nights. The condo was in a nice complex in a nice, fairly quiet (and safe) neighborhood. The beach was a very short walk. You could have walked to town if you wanted to, although we didn't do so. There is a small supermarket in the plaza that is located about a block away. The complex has only six condos and only one other one was occupied, so that was nice. I enjoyed the pool every day. The way the pool is set, you can find places to enjoy the sun or the shade.

The apartment manager, JoAnne, was very nice and was one time both when we arrived and when we department. The condo was nice. It is very tastefully decorated and the beds are comfortable (big plus). We used the kitchen to cook breakfast every morning. The A/C and fans work well, which is nice (although Coco was not really that hot while we were there - there was a nice breeze keeping everything cool).

We enjoyed Coco and the convenience of staying in this condo. We would stay there again for sure. I would even consider buying a unit there is one became available.

Only drawback is that the TV/Internet changed their policy and we did not have cable or internet while we were there. We didn't miss the TV, but not having the Internet was a bit of a challenge (since I needed to check work e-mails)....but we managed. So if TV and Internet are vital to you and/or your family, do speak to the owner to see what the options might be. Overall this was not a big deal for us.

“Enjoyable for the most part”

The condo was as advertised and for this time of year, a good value. The only downside was the double bed in second bedroom which was too small for my two sons so one had to take the couch. Also, due to the influx of tourists for the last week in December (New years party week) made the town and roads very busy and tiresome to get through. In addition, we had to ask neighbours in the rear, who were playing loud music until 1:00AM to turn it down on a couple of occasions. We will definitely go back but not during the last week of December.

Management Response
2 Jan 2014
the tenant was explained prior, that this is a double bed and two teenagers in it would not be advisable, He should had booked a three bedroom, but probably did not want to spend the extra money. After all this he asked our property mgr for a third bed. The condo is advertised for two beds. Yes it is high season in dec and gets quite busy, however there has never been any complaints of noise. Iam sorry his stay was not 100% enjoyable, but you cant make a 2 bedroom into three bedrooms, and also except it to be quiet any where during New Years.
