My mother disregarded the negative reviews thinking they were probably flukes. They were NOT! The critical reviews are spot on.The place is seriously run down and no one is on site to manage it. It is unlikely the unit was even cleaned before we checked in (caked on dust, linens smelled like they had just been slept on, leaky faucet... More

We were definitely not expecting luxury but this place is beyond repair. We stayed in Suite D. The stench in the room was unforgiving and the mold on the pillowcases, unbelievable. Broken vertical blind, sheets that smelled like they hadn't been washed in a long time. Don't do it!

We checked this out (as we always do) on tripadvisor (rated 2 of 3) and read positive reviews (except for one). Turns out, our experience was worst than the one negative review posted before us. We drove 3 hours Thanksgiving weekend with our yellow lab for a much-needed relaxing/fishing weekend. We arrived to no office, no contact, owners who didn't... More

We were not expecting an upscale, fancy place, but we were also not expecting to smell mold, see doors that barely fit their frames, broken tile in the kitchen, boards on the dock that were pulling away from the frames, etc. The floor in our "suite" was so soft from rot that it felt like we would fall through in...

This was my 1st visit, I came with a friend who stays here regularly. The glorious sunrises and sunsets were beyond words, and praying at the end of the dock with dolphin and manatee swimming up fulfilled a dream for me. Coazy, quaint clean room was perfect for our needs. We cooked shrimp and blue crab (fresh off the boat... More
