    Loud and not what it appears like in the photo

    This property was on the ground floor, facing the parking lot, along two pathways, next to a restaurant. Perhaps in the winter this is a great location; however, in summer it was loud with people walking by all night on the paths, cars parking and starting up, and smelly with the restaurant. I didn't want to sit outside because people were walking by without masks. I really wanted to like it. It just wasn't what I thought according to photos and it wasn't relaxing. Sorry. I've never been disappointed with a VRBO property before. This was more expensive than others properties I was looking at.
