By far the best kept secret on the island. Accommodations were exceptionally clean while Captains' Ed Cottage was complete with a small kitchen, beach chairs, umbrellas and even comp bike rentals. The location though not on the beach, literally is 2 minutes away. Ron, the Manager constantly asked what he could do to make our stay better...he is not only... More

Our unit had one bedroom, one bath and full kitchen with a flat screen tv in both the bedroom and living room. Their is nothing fancy about the PalmView but it is clean, well managed... More

We (two parents, two kids) stayed at the Palm Retreat, a spacious two bedroom and one bathroom with fully equipped kitchen, living room and dining room. Incredibly clean, comfortable, quiet, cosy, thoughtful touches, perfect for us. Had a fantastic holiday. Felt very lucky to find it. Kids loved their twin beds. 5 minutes walk to the beach, and very convenient... More

Stayed in the Hideway room for 2 nights. We enjoyed our stay, good location, easy walk to beach. Off the main street so nice and quiet. Liked room as the bedroom and kitchen/living room were separate. Full kitchen, well stocked and table to eat at. Room was clean and spacious for 2 people. Got to see other rooms as well,... More

We stayed at the hideaway at Palm View. Exactly what we needed for two people. Full kitchen and bedroom. Very clean and supplied with everything you need including beach chairs, towels and bikes. Location is great with the beach a 5 minute walk away and many good restaurants close by. The grounds were well kept and it was very quiet.... More

We stayed at the Pirate's Cove cottage at Palm View. It was very spacious for the two of us and had a full kitchen which was great for in-room breakfast. The location was convenient to the beach and the bike trails. The Palm View provided bikes, beach chairs and a beach umbrella which was very helpful.

My husband and I stayed for our honeymoon and I couldn't be happier with my stay. We stayed in Captain Ed. It was perfect, just what we needed. The whole place has personality. The owner is super nice! It is only five minutes away from the beach (they even offer bikes to ride). And it's right in the middle of... More
