Just For Fun

  • 4 of 5

An excellent place for up to four people. We enjoyed our stay even though tropical storm Cindy kept us in the house a lot more than we would have liked. We watched a lot of movies and watched the rain as well as listened to the wind.

The only other negative for us was that the kitchen and living room are upstairs and my wife has a difficult time with stairs. Overall I would give the Just for Fun cottage four stars.

Very comfortable Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice and convenient to the pool and beach. It was perfect and cozy. We had an issue with ants throughout the house. When raising the blinds In the bedroom upstairs, the cover fell off, I did not attempt to put it back for fear of breaking it. Otherwise everything was was very pleasant. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the good review. We will certainly look into an ant concern and the blind. We hope you will consider a return visit in the future. Deb and Phil

Another great vist to JFF

  • 5 of 5

Our family just loves this cottage! It truly is a place to relax and recharge. What is so nice about the beach in this area is it is not crowded!! In fact the whole area is so much better for us since we are out of the traffic and crowds of GS and OB, but can drive 12.5 miles if we want to go into town...... which is usually for Hope's Cheesecake!

This trip we got to use the new Kiva Dunes Beach Club. The JFF owners have arranged for renters to have access to use the facility and it is beautiful! Zero entry pool, and an amazing ocean view. We just setup a guest account at the clubhouse, received our guest wristbands and were able to use the pool, as well as eat at the restaurant. Everything was added to our credit card so we did not need to carry any cash. It was very convenient and the food was quite good.

The other really nice thing is the KD shuttle. They will take you anywhere on property and met us each time at the end of driveway. They circle regularly but gave us a number to call for pickup as well. EXTREMELY friendly drivers too!

Just another great trip to paradise and as usual we did not want to leave!
