    Hello! I've seen a couple comments regarding the heat, since there is no A/C. What is the weather like, typically, over Christmas, and is it often hot at night, when sleeping? Property looks so beautiful; I just want to get some feedback to determine what to expect in terms of weather and heat. We're from the southern US and used to A/C, so just used to having because it's so needed : ) Thanks so much!

    Hi Karen, I found the Beachfront Resort on the internet. Wondering if you mind getting back to me about this place. is the Kajak's available each day or just certain times? Also I see you said you had no problems with noisy rooms, did you stay on top or at the bottom ?? I will really appreciate more feedback if you have time, thank you Melanie from Stratford.
