If you love the beach and want easy access everywhere this is the perfect place! We stayed in unit 11 2 bdrm, 2 bath , that was very large and has all we needed. A few upgrades would make this a 5 star unit. It has a full kitchenette , dining , living room and two great size bedrooms. The... More

This is a great place to stay, right on the beach! Close to restaurants, walking distance to grocery store, pharmacy, and church! Unit is an older one, but clean and neat with a pool, a gas fire pit, and an outdoor grill. Laundry, too, if you are staying longer. Manager, Rick, and office staff go out of their way to... More

On the positive side the location is great! The room (#8) was very dated and in need of new furniture, bed, & cleaning! Expected better lodging for the price. If you charge over $200.00 per night you need to put the money back into the property.

This review is a little hard to comprehend, we just put in new living room furniture, updated all the Wifi and TV's, with Hi def signal., and so many other improvements. As far as pricing we are on the beach, so many others say they are on the beach, but either you cross the street or walk blocks to get... More

We made last minute reservations for the Memorial Day weekend at this quaint resort. We stayed in room 9. Overall the resort is nice, a bit outdated, but clean and the location couldn't have been better. There was a lot of people staying that weekend so the pool area was packed. We weren't able to enjoy the outsider pool/BBQ pig... More

I am glad they had a good stay. The Resort this fall is under going even more improvements, some of which have already been done since this guest has left. Furniture in the resort is schedule for replacement, as well as updated flooring and appliances. This Resort sees allot of guest each year, and with that comes some wear and... More

We just spent several days in one of the 2-bedroom units and had a wonderful time! We loved that the resort is right on the beach--no crossing the street to get there. The unit was clean and spacious and was stocked with all the kitchen utensils we needed--and then some. Fabulous. We loved the pool and enjoyed the private path... More

My family of about 20 stayed there for about a week and we had a great time! The resort is right on the beach, with it's own path to the beach, so we did not have to worry about crossing the street with the little ones. The grilling area was set up really nice and it had tables and chairs... More

This resort is all about location location location...for us, that was perfect! Close to shopping, beach café, right on the beach, no busy road to cross, great park with picnic area was right there. The only drawbacks are that the 2 bedroom unit doesn't have adequate storage for food and since the whole idea of having a full kitchen is... More

We recently spent 4 nights in one of the two bedroom units. We had a great time gathering with family of 20+ in the grilling area and it was great for our kids. The resort is small and quiet with maybe one dozen units, which made it easy to get from the beach to the pool. The staff was friendly... More

About 20 of us from my daughter's wedding party stayed here. We booked most of the rooms and the majority of the rooms were nicely renovated. The resort has a wonderful outdoor BBQ area with lots of seating and a great pool for the guests. The resort is quaint but a perfect size for our small wedding party. The reception... More
