My sisters and I just returned from a visit to Melissa's. We have stayed here many times over the years and will not stay anywhere else. You don't need to bring a thing with you except your clothes. Melissa provides everything else...beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, coolers, beer, sodas. And when you return from the beach in the afternoon, the wine is waiting! And the breakfast is very yummy! Once you park your car, you will not need it again until you leave. Everything is within walking distance.
