The pictures didn't show how nice it really is.

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay here. We had never been to the area and did not know what to expect, and if was perfect. The home was clean, moddern and very spacious with plenty of room to gather for meals and games or stretch out to relax in one of the roomy bedrooms. It is located in a gated community. The beautiful beaches are located right across the road. The property manager Kathy, was very friendly and extremely easy to work with. We will definitely be looking to come back to stay and would highly recommend to others.

We loved the house!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to let you know how much we loved the house! As you know, we have stayed in about 7 of the homes in Cottage Retreat and this one is now one of our favorites. The kitchen was well stocked and we appreciated that it had several sets of cookware and dishes/glasses so we didn't feel like we had to run the dishwasher multiple times a day to keep up :) The beds and pillows were very comfortable, the tvs were the best we have had in any of the home we stayed in and the layout was perfect for our family. You are such a pleasure to work with Kathy and we will be planning another trip down there for the same time next year. We are discussing coming down for maybe two weeks next time. One just never seems like enough time!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Tropical Paradise. Great location to the beach and the pool is really nice. We will be back. The nice thing about this property is the 3 king size beds. The property is well maintained and quite in the evening. The kitchen is really nicely stocked for about anything you want, we were all very impressed.

Great house close to pool and beach

  • 5 of 5

The area we stayed at was great. All the homes are very nice and well maintained. Close enough to walk to a couple of the local restaurants and the beach and water are beautiful. Fantastic pool. The best place we ate at was McGuire's Irish Pub best blue cheese I have ever had. Great vacation location tons of stuff to do all the time.

Great Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is very clean, comfortable, beautiful, spacious, quiet and has everything you could possibly imagine. I have to say I have stayed at numerous Condos and this is way better than any condo. All the girls in my family have started a tradition of having a girls only getaway and this was the second year to stay at the Beach Retreat Cottages, both stays were GREAT. We will definitely be returning next year.
