Do not under any circumstances use this agency. Their accomodations are substandard their agents rude and arrogant and their concept of service nonexistent. I was rented a unit for 2 weeks for over $2700. The unit's kitchen had a leaky sink, dishwasher didn't work, rust in microwave, tuck tape for shelves in fridge, icemaker ddin't work, stove in terrible shape, old beds and bedding, shabby furniture, blinds broken, the bathrooms old , parts missing from fixtures, shower didn't work, seal on one toilet broken. After waiting almost 3 days they moved me to another unit that also had problems. To this day the company has ignored all pleas from me for some compensation. Do not let this happen to you. Beware of unit 409 Villa Madeira, it is a Hell Hole!
every sunday about 5 pm on treasure islands beach behind the Bilmar hotel a huge groupof locals and visitors gather together with their bongos, flutes, bells and all sorts of odd musical instruments to "jam". It's amazing as you approach the cirlce how you can get caught up with the fabulaous impromptu beat!
you will find every age group enjoying the fantastic atmosphere!
bring a chair or blanket and "chill with the locals"
drumming continues till 10 pm
OK, all you fishermen and women.....run down and book a deep sea fishing trip with captain chris for a 10 hour trip and you won't be dissapointed!!
