                                                          A wonderful spot! Everything you need for a great stay and more. So sad to leave but will definitely come back.

                                                          Great location, very comfortable cottage

                                                          Linda S.

                                                          Great holiday stay at "the purple cottage". Cottage contains everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Comfortable bed and the outside deck is fantastic. Close to everything and the beach is awesome. We had a great holiday. Thankyou Cherie!

                                                          She always has the place clean and ready and it's also a very enjoyable stay

                                                          mary beth k.

                                                          The property is always clean and orderly the property is always clean and orderly and very accessible to park in and to get out of one minute from the beach and write across the street in the bamboo Beach bar and about 100 yards to the beginning of Johns pass can't ask how much better than that

                                                          Comfortable with Fabulous Location!

                                                          Jennifer S.

                                                          You can’t get a better location! There is a crosswalk right outside the driveway to allow easy crossing to all of the shops and bars! The large front patio and back deck are almost larger than the spacious apartment itself! Inside the size was perfect for two! We felt very comfortable for our 3 night stay! The bathroom had great counter space! The washer and dryer was in unit with soap! There were also beach towels and nerf type balls! Very well equipped! The deck was awesome to people watch from the one side or just listen to the music in the distance from the bamboo beach bar across the street. One caution, the live music CAN be slightly heard inside. But no bother to us at all. It was faint and I napped right through it. They only played during happy hour while we were there as well. We actually enjoyed listening! Thanks again for hosting us! I’ve already recommended to friends heading that way this coming year!!!

                                                          Great location

                                                          Michelle S.

                                                          It was a great little set up. Can sneak a peak of the ocean from the bed with the double french doors open. I saw a review that said there were beach chairs but we didn’t see any. We also didn’t ask for them so no big deal. Location across from the Pass is awesome. Very relaxing area and home. Only somewhat downside is the parking but I don’t see any way that can be changed really. Luckily no one was in the downstairs unit until the last day so it ended up fine. When we asked after check in if we could stay another day Cherie was very quick to let us know it was available and made the arrangements quickly. Would definitely book again and even thinking about bringing the in laws back and renting downstairs. Thank you for the lovely honeymoon location.
