Right on the beach!

With the extension, which takes you right in the beach, this is an excellent beachfront suite. Lorrie was excellent in communicating everything we needed to know. We would definitely stay here again.

We could not have asked for anything more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a location that would give us the opportunity to get away and relax for the weekend. Sandy Suite was perfect. Located right on the beach we had easy access to the beach, not to mention waking up to the sound of waves! The location gave us the feeling of our own private beach area and the views were breathtaking. Everything was in walking distance, this included tourist areas, local shops, and pretty much everything we needed. When we checked in Lorrie mentioned that they aimed to have people feel like they were at home away from home, and it was just that! I could not have asked for anything better!

Everything we needed and a lovely and convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed listening to the surf with the windows open and being able to walk to restaurants nearby. Walking right out the door to play on the beach was a highlight for our youngest guest.

I also love being able to come and go without a key!
