Great location! Beautiful home and very spacious!
Nice house...needs some improvements
The house overall is great.l The pool and hot tub are nice, but small. The outdoor kitchen is nice as well. The house needed to be gone through a bit better prior to our stay. The dishwasher was broken, quite a few lightbulbs were out, ceiling fans not working, the cooktop in the kitchen was cracked, etc. Some of the items were well worn. Compass resorts was fantastic to deal with and were very responsive to our calls. The house is very nice for a large group. Super close to the beach. Overall it was a great trip, however the house could use some minor improvements.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us! We're glad to hear that overall your trip was great. Your feedback is very important to us and will be shared with our team.

beautiful house with great views
Management property is one of the best I’ve ever dealt with. We definitely recommended this home!
Great Location, Very Relaxing
We had a wonderful stay at this house. It was in a perfect spot to walk to the beach and it had all the amenities that our kids could ask for if they just wanted a break from the sand! It was perfect for the 12 of us and could possibly accommodate a few more if needed. We will definitely use this house again in the future:)
Could easily be a 5 star
Let me start by saying compass resorts is a top notch company. We were there during the hurricane and had issues with the roof leaking and water ran into house. The owners were aware of this before the storm. The pool and hot tub heater was a problem the whole time. The house is large and nicely decorated. We enjoyed our stay for the most part and would stay again. The beach and beach access is as good as it gets. The parking is tight and could use some more room. The HOA manager was a jerk about a car hanging 6 inches on sidewalk when there were portajohns on sidewalk right beside it. There was some construction going on next door and yhe kept road blocked a lot. Other than that great place to stay and would stay again.
The house was amazing. There was so much room and space for my whole family. pool. Spa beach sweet
