It is furnished with everything you can think of or need. The pool and hot tub are wonderful and you can just walk off the deck onto the beach. I come here every year!!!

He has towels, beach toys, chairs, cooking items, etc. The beach is very nice and we were often the only people on it. Lots of shells for my kids to pick up, and the beach is shallow for a long way out, so it was great for them to play in. We plan on returning.
