Thank you for noting our great location! As the new owners we are working on extensive renovations. We had to shut down after the hurricane, but we are remodeling each room fully before we open it up again. We have several rooms open now, and many more soon. I hope you come back and see all the positive changes! More

Under new ownership. Got into room a/c not working, hair and bugs in bed. Termites eating wood on old furniture in room. Room smells really bad. New owner claims she just bought property yesterday and was unaware of condition of room. Housekeeper reported the bugs in bed are not bed bugs.
