The Beach Bungalow is a true gem that everyone should have the pleasure of experiencing. I've connected with so many incredible humans and made friendships that will last a lifetime. The staff is incredible, and it's been amazing working alongside them as a part of the ITH family. Living the beach life at the bungalow has been an experience I will be forever grateful for. Overall, had an incredible time and would highly recommend!
