    The system is automatically set up for cancellations where the first day is kept for short-notice cancellations. We hope you contacted us directly for circumstances like this. We were without power for a long time, but are now back up and running.

    Everything needed for a one nighter. Family of 4, 2 queen beds. Decent pool area, and continental breakfast included. Great location, just off Duval street, where all bars, shops and restaurants are. 25 min walk to harbour to see the sunset.
