This is beautiful location and a wonderful apartment with all the amenities. We didn’t see any whale (it may have been the time of year) but did enjoy the balcony by grilling and laying around. The issue were bugs, there were mosquito machines but they didn’t seem to do much. …

Thank you for the review Barbara, I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. Even though we advertise being able to clearly see whales, dolphins etc it always blows guests away when they get there and see for themselves (I have to admit that I never get tired of it either!) Kind regards, Mailie

Hi David, thank you for your review and your kind comments about the apartment. We have changed our WiFi since your stay so there is no longer a limit per day. Obviously it is not geared for major streaming or huge downloads but it is sufficient for most guests requirements. Kind regards, Mailie.
