The cottages are super cute and right in the beach. They have everything you need to stay for days and I spent a full hour in the hammock relaxing one morning with no noise but the birds. Awesome. Quiet. Get some groceries and enjoy the island time.

Peaceful & secluded stay
Our studio was very clean, well equipped with everything we needed. There is no pool, but they included beach chais, towels & umbrellas. There are tables & BBQs around the property which made it nice to sit around & enjoy a bite to eat.

The view from upstairs was great. The proximity to the beach was a real plus. There was not a sharp knife in the silverware drawer. The bottom step of the stairway was not level. There was a musty smell in the room. These are minor issues, our stay was great and we are very pleased.

Visited a few times before but stayed in a cottage this time instead of the efficiency Had everything I needed in the kitchen, nicely remodeled and comfortable. The cottages property being walkable to the beach and also having all the beach gear available for their guests is a huge plus to make it feel like I'm at home and not at a hotel. Staff are pleasant and helpful as always. Would recommend to others that like quaint places to stay.

This was our second stay at this property . We absolutely love it. They supply beach umbrella chairs lounge and regular. Grills and picnic tables . Each cabin has a deck with table chairs umbrella . The cabin is clean comfortable and well equipped. We grilled every night. Laundry facilities right on site no extra charge plus laundry soap available. The Staff went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed. Beds pillows blankets comfortable extra if you need it. Stand up shower . In the BBQ area and picnic area there is an outside shower to rinse after beach time. Just a great Home away from Home
