We stayed in cabin five which had a entry area to dust off sand. Everything was very clean including the dishes. Great layout. Beautiful picnic areas and pools. A short walk to the beach and to nearby gas station and grocery. Late check in available.

This is a great family resort. It is an easy walk to beach, straight down Avenue G. You are near restaurants and shops. The pool is great especially since it is kept warm. Everyone is really friendly staying there. The suite was plenty big for our family with a great kitchen. We did though have to ask for our room... More

The ac was out and it was June father's day which is HOTHOTHOT! They provided us a portable ac but that only cooled the small tiny bathroom area and could not keep up with the unit. They were sold out and could not move us so we stayed for a ridiculous price in sweaty accommodations! We did not receive any... More

Nothing beats being right off the beach In your own cabin. Vintage yet updated cabin is steps from the beach. Great location and staff is great too. Thanks for another great year!!! We always stay at the cottages and will continue to do so. The pool is great too.

Are you kidding me? The outside looks cute and inviting. The room stunk like some gross smelly i don't know what. The room was filthy. The ceiling fans looked like they haven't been cleaned in years. There was a gross thick build up on the fan blades. I called the front desk, and they close at 5pm! Spend your money... More

This was the first time my wife and I stayed here. When we showed up the staff greeted us and joked around with us about everything which made it seem personable. Then we got to our room and it was amazing. Smelled great and was spotless. The cleaning crew was amazing. We brought our dog for only a $25 fee... More

The staff was friendly and the pool area was ok. Not too pleased with the mold in the shower window curtains or the sense that the carpet is past its prime.
