Was previously here in April and now again in August. The view/location here is amazing. Sunsets, dolphins, more dolphins (maybe we were just lucky) the short walk to the beach. Imagine there are fancier beach rentals, but this place has everything our family needs for vacation. Pool, kitchen, beach, grills, etc....the location is great. The hotel/resort is clean (not sure about other bug comments as I haven't seen bugs in our two stays), good staff (Hollyn is fantastic) and the location can't be beat for the price.
The room we stay in (318) seems somewhat unique. The king size bed is great, the room was clean and the owner made numerous upgrades (new sliding glass/screen doors) including bathroom accessories. The room has a nice size fridge, microwave, toaster over, coffee maker, etc.... and all the basic kitchen rental stuff. And there are beach chairs, umbrella, frisbees, etc...... But this owner went one better by leaving books, DVDs, board games, puzzle books, etc..... in the room. We had good weather for the week and did not end up needing the rainy day distractions. But I was struck by the thought process and extra effort of the owner. When was the last time anyone of us have stayed anywhere (at least at this price) where management was that focused on our needs.
We'll be back to the Island Inn in December and have room 318 already reserved. I suggest others do as well (but likely have to do the rental through VRBO or ITrip).
