                                                                  Nicely furnished and maintained. Gated, relaxing, friendly community. Several amenities that make you feel welcomed. No beach view. Two beach access, one is a steep climb. Take advantage of Beach Club parking and access. We would have gone to beach more frequently had we investigated this perk earlier. There's a plant that produces a prickley, painful, kuckabur. Watch out, you bring them in on your shoes. They embed themselves in the rugs and carpet. Their at the beach access too. We had 6 adults in our group. There's plenty of room.

                                                                  Great house and location

                                                                  Ben(Tim's brother) W.

                                                                  My family and I enjoyed our stay greatly. The house was basically move-in ready and had all the amenities we wanted. We were walking distance to the beach/ocean (even with 2 small children). I would highly recommend this house and could easily see us coming back and staying in it again.

                                                                  Stunning!

The house is so charming. Our children loved their room and the crowes nest. Everything was so easy and accessible. Everyone there is so nice and customer service is amazing! We will definitely stay again!

The house had everything we needed and Robin was very easy to get in touch with! The shuttle to the beach was great and we loved the beach club! If you want to stay away from the crowds this is a great spot!

                                                                  Gorgeous property!! All the amenities and very comfortable!!

Beautiful setting and very comfortable stay. Management was great and thought of everything we would need. They were just a call or email away and we were well cared for!! Absolutely stunning, yet quaint Cottage that made us feel like beach dwellers. Simply wonderful! We will come again and again!
