We stayed 4 nights at this resort in early March. It is absolutely charming and relaxing. The gardens and grounds are beautiful as is the beach. Mike and Carol are tremendously helpful and are always on the property to answer questions about the local area. They also leave a list in your cottage of their favorite nearby restaurants etc. We went to three of them and were not disappointed. My two kids also loved this property. The cottage has everything you need except your clothing and swimsuit and a few groceries. Chad's restaurant is within walking distance and it is also great and the grocery store is a couple of miles down the street. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away from the noise and the crowds this is the place. All of the guests are very friendly and in the evenings people sit outside and grill and chat. Reminds you of what a vacation used to be like before high rises etc.
