Clean and updated. Very spacious for our large family.

The property was well maintained and updated. We were impressed with the calm environment and gated security.

Bugged out!

Really enjoyed the property but the bugs were terrible. You couldn’t stay outside too long. We had to purchase insect spray in order to bare them. At the pool was the same problem. I guess that’s why NO One was at the pool or enjoying the outdoors.

I'm so glad we went here instead of the beach!

My family and I decided at the last minute to get away for the weekend. This play was well beyond our expectations! The condo was so nice as well as the staff that went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The condo was right on the water, beautiful sunsets and over all a much needed rest.

A great relaxing place to stay!

Great view! Wonderful condo!
Staff was wonderful! I will say that this condo is not wheelchair accessible. The bed is very high, hard to transfer to.
Overall, a very nice serene place to stay. Caught crabs, fish and saw deer and raccoons.

Stayed November, 2016
