Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay! The amenities were perfect for our family if 6 adults. The master bedroom was a treat we all fought over as the 2 other bedroom beds were not as comfortable. Also, the sofa bed was in poor condition and I wouldn't count it as a sleeper at all.

I'm still giving this stay a 5 star because the rest of the home was well equipped and lovely! From the kitchen, to the board games, to the bookcase selection. Such nice touches! The proximity to the pool and beach were perfect for it not being an "on the beach" home.

Would stay again in a heartbeat...but would fight harder for the master bed! lol 😂

Great location. Close to the pool and the beach. The villa is comfortable and has good floor plan. Love the screen porch! My only complaint is that there was no grill on the property and we were not allowed to provide our own. But the kitchen is well stocked and we had all the cooking utensils we needed!

Terrific Location and Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Location within the complex could not have been better, easy walk to the beach. The unit has been nicely updated and finishes are terrific. Absolutely the best we've seen in Fairway Dunes and we have seen a lot of them. Comfortable hangout spaces, appropriate appointments. Only negative was no access to the garage and that would have been really nice for bikes and beach gear.
