Because we love the area & the beach is just like the Caribbean!

Swimsuit & flops... that's all

  • 5 of 5

Pack lightly, as all you need is your swimsuit and flops. That's right, this lovely condo is totally equipped with everything you need to relax on the beautiful beach just outside your door. Towels, chairs, toys, and even a washer and dryer! It is very clean and charmingly decorated. We have been to the island the past 4 years, and fortunately were able to book with Wendy the last 2 trips. Definitely our go to place!

Thanks Wendy!

Very Satisfied Customer ...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at your place of paradise. Thank you Wendy and Bill for providing everything we needed...beach towels, beach chairs, patio chairs and a table, even a hair dyer. You thought of everything. Your place is very clean and pleasant. It was outstanding and awesome just to be able to enjoy and see the beautiful sunsets ever night on the porch. We definitely will be coming back again.

Cozy Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our eighth stay at Shell Cove and our seventh in this lovely condo. Wendy has done a fantastic job maintaining and making improvements to the condo. We drive and therefore are able to bring our own beach paraphernalia...towels, chairs etc....however this is all supplied by Wendy...anything you could want. The kitchen is well equipped . Unfortunately our weather ...Tropical Storm Colin...left a lot to be desired. Wendy , out of concern, flew down during the storm to make sure we were okay and had everything we needed..Thank You. We stocked up on food and water and were able to ride out the storm safely. It is ,after all , hurricane season and you take your chances with the weather. The beach is wonderful. It is awesome to open your door and be at the beach. There are a number of great restaurants in the area. Some were closed following the storm , but opened in a day or two. It was a blessing to have great internet service, cable tv and a comfortable "home" to spend our time in. I would highly recommend staying here for a peaceful vacation...Thanks Wendy...once again. Karen and Scott

Our favorite vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and we love it! The unit is just beautiful and has everything we needed. The beach is just steps out the door and we spent most of our stay out under our umbrella just watching the waves and enjoying the beautiful weather! We will be coming back to this one again as soon as we can!

Thanks Wendy for making sure we had everything we needed and ensuring that we were happy with our stay!

A bit of paradise on AMI

  • 5 of 5

We loved our unit and have already booked for next year. The location could not be better - just step off the patio and you are on the beach. Beach is so quiet. Our unit had very comfortable and attractive furnishings. The bed had a king size mattress which was so comfortable. A washer and dryer were a plus. The kitchen was fully equipped and cleaning supplies were provided. The owners were so helpful and friendly. My husband dropped the remote and they replaced it right away. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a very relaxing, comfortable stay. Also, great location near shopping and restaurants.
