          We just booked for 7/14-7/16. A queen room. We would like to have a room with access to the balcony on second floor please. Also away from stairs with tv if possible. Hopefully it has a larger bathroom we are big people. Is there parking available on premises. Beach chairs? Bikes? Thank you and can't wait to hear back from you. Michele & Mark
