My husband and I, with our two young children, stayed here for the week of Christmas to be near my sister and her family. The unit was clean, well-equipped, and just what we needed. There was no charge for use of the washer and dryer, beach chairs and towels available, and the kitchen was stocked with pretty much everything except groceries. David was friendly and accommodating; we emailed back and forth several times before our arrival and had no trouble finding the place or "checking in." The beach behind the house is very nice; very few people, very clean and lots of shells for collecting. We woke every morning to the sight of the sun rising over the ocean - lovely! The couch pulls out, so we were even able to have guests a couple of nights. The area around the place is fine; a few restaurants & bars, nice parks, and a little market nearby. The larger supermarket is a drive, but not far. We had a great time and hope to stay again sometime.
Owner's Response: The nearest Publix supermarketand CVS are exactly 4 miles away door to door with another Publix and Walmart a little further.We cannot guarantee that there will be shells on the beach as it depends on the direction of the wind and waves but there usually are at least some

We have stayed in this unit many times over the last 15 years and the Martins have always been most helpfull but not at all intrusive or disturbing our vacation in any way,This is a wonderfull location right on the beach with wonderfull views from the master bedroom and the living room .There are supermarkets off the island but not too far away,it is a good destination for going to Palm Beach,Cape Canaveral and Orlando.Miami is an easy drive to tri rail in West Palm Beach then a great train ride,2 hours to Miami Beach and Miami

We just returned from an awesome week oceanfront at this 4-plex.
The Owners live on site and are accomodating yet leave you to enjoy their paradise without any interruption.

If you are looking for a 5 star resort - go elsewhere. However, If you are looking for an old Florida, clean, private beach retreat - you have found it.

We enjoyed both the 2 bedroom and 1 bedroom accomodations with family for the weekend, and after all had left enjoyed the 2 bedroom for the rest of the week. Lots of sea shells and a beach virtually all to yourself.

This 4-plex has everything that you need and an ocean view and beach that are so awesome. We opened our eyes every morning to the sun rising over the ocean and listening to the roar of the waves. Again, not fancy, but clean and private with everythting you need.

Thanks again for an awesome vacation and for sharing your paradise with us.
