The managers at this property made you feel very welcome and comfortable. They were great. The unit itself was nice but could have used a little updating, but was very clean

Cute little old fashion beachy vibe room. Super clean with a very roomy shower. Small kitchenette was adequate in size and stocked with coffee maker, microwave, stove, refrigerator, and toaster. Bed too hard for my liking (I did not sleep at all while there) but my husband had no issues with it. Close drive to beaches which is why we were there. Small market within walking distance for ice, drinks, sandwiches, salads and other items. Would book property again.

We never met the owners. Our room was open when we got there and we dropped the key off before they opened. The place was clean -the pool refreshing. We would stay again.

The only real knock on the property was that both mattresses were extremely uncomfortable. They seemed to be well woren as you would roll into the middle of the bed. We tried both beds and got the same result. This was in unit #20. Aside from that this was a great place to stay, very quiet and the grounds were well kept! Cottage was cute....
