Great place 10 minute walk to a fairly secluded beach with a great view of the sunset. The owner and property manager were very helpful and responded to a personal concern very quickly. The condo was recently renovated and is in great shape and matches the VRBO on site description. It is situated in a small quiet community.

I would recommend this place for your vacation.
