third year staying

The house was nicely updated, and the fenced in area for our little dog was great to have. The proximity to the beach and pool were close, and having the use of the golf cart was really nice to have especially in the brutal heat. The communication with Lindsay was clear and consistent. This is our third year staying in this community, and definitely won't be our last.
