inexpensive 24" women's cruiser; sixthreezero??

Hi,
I've been looking for a beach cruiser style bike & am thinking of getting a sixthreezero. I don't ride much; actually, I haven't been on a bike in years. Just looking for something to pedal around the campground in the summer, maybe a few bike trails (paved). I really like the look of the beach cruisers. But here's my dilemma: I'm just barely 5' tall, so I think I need a 24" frame. And there's just not a lot to choose from in that size. Also, I can't afford to pay the $300 & up that most of them seem to be. I've been looking on craigslist for months now & haven't found a single one. I even put a wanted ad out. So I came across this bike:

And seemed to be what I'm looking for. I live in Oregon, so I'd have to order online. Do you think this would be a good bike for me?

Probably so naomi02. The frame is the same size as my 24" wheel rental bikes at work, and folks your size usually enjoy them as they fit correctly.
