This is a taste of "Old Florida" the kind of place that reminds you of days gone by... The "cottages" are painted to match your mood, light fanciful colors that make you smile. The smile will not stop as you enter and find all you really need, no flash, just practical furnishings, comfortable not chic, ones your grandma has. The rooms are actually larger than they appear in the pictures but still they are by no measure large...just reasonable. Perfect for a couple.
All the cabins are nice, clean and decorated in a fanciful fashion. They kitchen is furnished with a mixture of the items you might need to cook up your own "catch of the day" if you decide to eat in.
Be mindful of where you are staying.... many choices for eating are a short walk/bike ride/drive away. You find almost any type of food you desire. The office has brochures from many establishments on the Island.
This grounds around this paradise are kept exceptionally clean and neat. It is hard to imagine this type of place still exists.... it truly makes you smile.
