SERENITY

This is a great rental. It was very well equipped, and the owners are responsive. I would book it again in a heartbeat if it becomes available. The grounds of the complex are well maintained and safe. This is an excellent value, and a nice area to visit, especially for dog owners.

PEACEFUL, FUN CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas in this very nice and comfortable condo. Two families stayed here, and we were not at all crowded. The unit is furnished nicely and the kitchen is very well equipped. It was quiet, and we were just steps from the beautiful white sand beach! We will certainly be back!

BEYOND WHAT WE EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5
After 6 yrs of my husband and I not having more then 6 hours alone together and the opportunity came up for him to attend camp for 3 nights with program for adults with disabilities. Your condo was simply amazing. The king size bed was so comfortable, the jetted tub was so soothing after our biking and kayaking, loved the layout and decor. Loved the sunsets and moon lit nights. Enjoyed 8 am horseback riding on the beach and a sunset ride on our last night. Thank you for such an amazing stay and we were able to relax knowing our son was less then 2 miles away at camp. We will stay with you again next yr if unit is available.

FAMILY FRIENDLY!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home and are already thinking about our return trip next year! The condo was so close to the beach it made having 3 small children at the beach no problem. The pool was also so close that we could enjoy it quickly before naptime...or in the evening.
The layout of the condo provided everyone (our 5 and grandparents) their own space and ample shared space to enjoy. The views from the decks were amazing--a great place for morning coffee!
Perfect! Thank you!
