The location was great. We were right off the beach and had a great stay. The staff is absolutely excellent. The efficiency slept all 4 of us comfortably. There was a kitchenette and we kept cold drinks and made coffee in the morning. Loved the little front porch.

Great, quiet place. Steps to the beautiful private beach with barely anyone near you. The studio we had was small, neat and clean. Shower and tub, small kitchenette and the caretaker’s are great and eager to make sure you have a nice stay! Pets allowed! We’ll be back!

Wonderful spot on the beach. Staff were fantastic and helpful. The cottage I stayed in was fantastic. I love the front inclosed porches that keep you away from the bugs! I expect to come back here in the future.
