love love loved it! Great location, an easy walk to some bars and food. Right off the Ferry Dock. Easy cab ride to Trunk Bay and other awesome places! Would go back in a heartbeat. We were nervous because it was 'across the road' from the beach but it turned out to not be an issue. the road is tiny!
