  • Hi Crest, The 3 bedroom town house with cocktail pool says it has 1 bedroom with a double bed and 2 other bedrooms with only 1 single bed in each. Is this correct? Because in the town house with no cocktail pool it has 1 room with a double bed and 2 rooms with 2 single beds. Also is there a barbecue

    Good afternoon, The 3 bed town house w/ cocktail pool has one bedroom with double bed and the other two rooms have twin beds. Maximum capacity of the property if for 6 guests.
