Perfect! Very clean ..great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage son, my daughter and her 2 children stayed her the week of Thanksgiving . It was SIMPLY perfect. I am so glad we found this property. I made an ENTIRE thanksgiving meal for my family and 3 other relatives and had EVERYTHING I needed. We really couldn't ask for more. The entire place is great. The backyard area is relaxing and fun. Darlene is THE perfect host. Even after a week of a screaming 2 year old and us trying to burn up her dryer- ;-) she STILL welcomed us back in the future with open arms. You couldn't ask for a better place!!!!

Beautiful Beach

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay here. The pictures of the beach really do not do it justice. It is like being Cozumel, the water was clear and beautiful. Plus it was easy for us to just walk a few steps to the beach, and there is an outside shower for us to use. The area was laid back, nice and relaxing.

I would go again, and again.
