This resort is not for you if you want daily activities, pool parties, bar scene and night life on site. It is for the discriminating traveler who enjoys a quiet relaxed atmosphere in beautifully maintained cottages on the beach. There are only 16 cottages - 8 on the beach side and 8 on the bay side . All have upgraded bathrooms, granite kitchens with stainless steel appliances. Cottages on the beach side have laundry facilities in the unit while those on the bay side use a laundry room by the pool. There is a rec room with a small collection of books people have donated, table tennis and billiards. Free bicycles are available and there is a Monday morning coffee get together. The staff are outstanding . TJ who maintains the property checked out our overheating car, made an appointment to have it fixed and drove us to the garage. Cheryl one of the two housekeepers offered to have me stay at her house which is near the hospital where my husband was admitted. Peggy happily drove my husband around the property in her housekeping golf cart and Lisa Marie at the front desk constantly went out of her way. It is a pleasure to return year after year to this timeshare which also has units to rent through the onsite office. By the way there is plenty to do and see in the area and great restaurants.
