Our visit wasn't long enough

  • 5 of 5

The property was as charming as the pictures. Everything was exactly as stated. The beach was a short walk away.There was a wagon which was a big help with our chairs, umbrellas, etc. The pool was delightful. We were in walking distance to some great little restaurants. The manager was available by phone when we had a question. All in all it was a wonderful stay and price was right in line with other properties so we picked this one because it looked so nice from the pictures. We will be back.

Awesome threebedroom three bath unit near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and well appointed. The set up with the bedrooms works well with two couples and children. Pool and waterfall wall are nice and it is a great place to relax. It is very close to the beach and is only a short walk. Nice to have beach chairs and the beach wagon. It is on a somewhat busy street so you have to be careful crossing the street due to the traffic and the curve of the road right before the home. The waterfall wall blocks much of the noise and you hear no noise in the house. Close to restaurants and other fun little shops.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Will absolutely go back and stay here. Close to the beach, restaurants, and stores, but feels like you are secluded. Comfortable beds, big living space, and great pool!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is on a main thoroughfare, but because of the high fencing and lush foliage surrounding it, it had a peaceful and very private feel. I'd hoped it would be a quick walk to the beach and it was - about 200 steps for me. It was great to have the beach towels, beach chairs, and wagon provided - saved us a lot of room in the car!

The outdoor spaces were lovely - the tall palms, bamboo and other greenery were dense and have the feel of your own tropical paradise! The pool, though small, was clean and we loved the submerged table to sit at to play cards or have a drink. It was nice that there were chaise lounges and a larger table that seated 6 - we ate outside for dinner most nights, although the mosquitoes did chase us in a few times.

The house itself was clean and nicely decorated - I loved the stone tile throughout that made us not worry about the occasional drip from the pool. One of the best parts for our family of 6 was not having to share bathroom space since each bedroom had its own full bath. That made getting ready in the evenings quick and less stressful with 5 of us being women! The kitchen was spacious and made it easy for several at a time to prepare meals and hang out. All in all this was a very nice property that we'd highly recommend and hope to return someday. Lauren was easy to work with

Great place and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house and surrounding area. Very private and relaxing. Easy walk to a breathtaking beach. Outstanding communication with the management. Loved the fact that it wasn't so commercialized area like other beachs. Like a old beach town. Absolutely had a great vacation and will be going back again.
