                                                          Great place. Will book again.

                                                          Best unit in southbay..... an absolutely fabulous time

                                                          Veronica W.Hampton, GA

                                                          We were just re-booking this unit for this year and I wanted to write about what a wonderful time we have had here. The unit is, in our opinion, the very best one in Southbay. It is the closest one to the boardwalk that takes you to the beach and gazebo. We use the gazebo almost everynight and have cocktails while listening to the ocean. It was not crowded at all, and it was nice to have a hose right outside the patio to clean off all of our beach stuff. It also has parking spots right in front of the front door, so no long walk or elevator....very convenient.

                                                          The unit is very clean and well furnished. The location is wonderful and we have found some great restaurants to go to, including some amazing happy hour oyster specials. The kitchen is great also, and we eat in most nights. There are three great seafood stores within a mile or so, and we get fresh seafood everyday and bring a little charcoal grill to cook on. We eat right out on the patio with a beautiful view.

                                                          It rained on occation while we were there, but we are very close to the movie theater and shopping, so no problem. It is also great how they have two beds in each room. There were 5 of us and it was very comfortable. We really like having two separate bathrooms upstairs as we all got pretty sandy.

                                                          We can't wait till our next time staying there. Thank you also to the owners for being so helpful with the booking. They have made it a pleasure to go back each year!

                                                          We enjoyed staying in the unit that was 25 yards from the beach. The unit was clean and worked great for our family. Owner's were very good to work with us on a short notice vacation. Thanks again for a great vacation. Greg & Debbie
