Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

Been staying in these condos for about 6 years and they are Wonderful. Always clean and neat. Price is very reasonable. You are across the street from the beach so that is always a plus. The tenant is always very pleasant to deal with and is always available if I ever need them. A++ Do yourself a favor and make reservations for this condo, u will NOT be disappointed!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying here and the place was awesome! The condo was very clean, nice, and had everything we needed for our stay! We would strongly recommend this place to anyone, and we plan on returning here again next year. The people and the island was way better than we expected! Hope everyone enjoys their stay here, we sure did! :)
