“Beautiful place, however some things that you need to consider first.”

Nicole's place was absolutely stunning. It was very close to the beach, the view outside was spectacular, the shower outside was perfect and the animals around the area were so cute (especially the cats) ! We never got to meet Nicole, but everything was easy to set up for check in and check out. In addition, the place was clean and it provided more than enough amenities. (WiFi, Towels, Shampoo, water, etc.).

As much as i want to say that the place was perfect, there were three things that we felt like was important to know especially for future renters. First of all, there are bugs... a lot of bugs. our first couple of nights, we were bitten by mosquitoes everywhere. There are also ants and small bugs around the house so be careful about leaving food out. We also found a couple of roaches inside the house which kinda freaked us out. due to the location of the house, there are just a lot of bugs around the area, making the place more prone for bugs to enter. Nicole provided bug repellent, but was only useful for outdoor use only. I would recommend for anyone renting the place to just be cautious and maybe wear long sleeves when you sleep. (however, the place can get pretty hot since there is no AC but just fans). Try to keep the doors closed as much as possible because these bugs enter fast! Also, rinse out any dishware/utensils you use in the place just in case of bugs touching it because we found some small bugs inside the drawers.

Second, the place provided very comfortable couches for you to lounge in and watch TV. However, the main couch has a couple of wood spikes inside the cushion. There were a lot of times where i would come back and sit on the couch and get stabbed by a small spiked wood chip. I tried taking some out, but there are just too many in random places.

Third, If you read the description, you would know that the shower is outside. the shower is located outside the door from the bathroom in the house. I think that this was definitely one of the highlights of the place. However, even though the shower is covered by a wooden fence. there is a piece of cloth the covers the entrance to the backyard. Sometimes when there is higher winds, the cloth would blow up exposing you to the backyard. Even though this isn't really a problem since no really enters the backyard, it is just something to note for people who are little more self-conscience. This particularly did not bother us, but we feel this is something that is good to know. We also found one big roach in the shower too.

Besides of those three, the place is great and i would definitely recommend this to anyone who is trying to get away from the busy city and be somewhere more secluded and nice.

Had not had a complaint about bugs till this guest but had an exterminator come out and have not had a complaint since. I just stayed there myself for a week and did not come across any bugs.
