To be honest, the pictures make the place look way much better (and bigger?) than it is in person. It's no one's fault really, but it's based off my personal experience. I requested the cottage that had the best view from the balcony of the ocean which WOULD have been the best view... if the greenery was trimmed down a bit so I could even see the ocean. I understand it's called "Treetops" but the pictures here must have been taken when the trees were a bit smaller. So I knocked off a star for the lack of romance, but at least we could walk to the shore from the BnB for personal photos (can't swim there).
Amenities and bathroom were fine. Bathroom was clean and toilet flushed. Shower was warm when needed. However, I would like to address that the blinds covering all the windows do not completely give you privacy. A peeper could easily peer through (bathroom and bedroom).
Also I guess these pictures were taken in the other cottage because when I was there last month, only 1 light in the room could be on at a time (couldn't turn on both lights). Of course I could have addressed this to the host whenever I saw her......
Take note that these cottages are not completely sealed from the outside. There are many holes/gaps in which creepy crawlers, mosquitoes, and ants will come in and snuggle with you in bed.
Lastly (sorry for the long review), along with being unable to get in contact with the host, the WiFi was DOWN. The entire time! I would have been a happy camper if I at least had a way to contact family/transportation! Fortunately I had loaded up on minutes... I tried contacting the host via the number on their AirBnB to no avail (left a text also, but no response?). We were out most of the time so I never saw the host in person - even on the day we checked out.
