Very nice property. Clean and nicely decorated. Everything a vacationer needs for cooking and the beach was provided. Friendly staff. We were even surprised with an upgrade! We stayed in the Beach House (5 of us) and had plenty of space.

When we arrived my family of 5 and I were put in the beach house which is a 3 bedroom 2 bath. Shortly after getting settled in we noticed that there was 3 in white dog hair ALL OVER everything from the beds, under the blankets, on the floors and all over the furniture. Our clothes were covered in it. We even noticed there was a prescription pill on the night stand by the bed. There was several signs stating that these were pet free places and that they would charge us if they had to clean extra after we left. We called them and they put us in a much smaller place (that still had some dog hair in it as well). I would not suggest ANYBODY staying here. They are money hungry and don't clean their cottages. I will NEVER stay here AGAIN. Worst place I have EVER stayed in.
