Just got back to Iowa from our stay at the Arvilla. We love this place! Character and charm of an older motel, 50's or 60's era? Two adults, three teenagers and a 5 year old. Quiet, very clean, super friendly. You get to know your neighbors, don't feel like you have to luck your door just to step out by the pool for a few hours, 5 year old ankle to walk around freely and zero concerns about her safety. If you are looking for fancy bling bling it's not for you, but for a clean, friendly inviting and relaxing stay, it's perfect. Not overcrowded with loud kids and so forth and a pool do crossed you can't get in the pool, a quick walk to the gulf is right out your door. We wish we could have stayed longer that's for sure! Will be going back that's for sure! Already planning it. Depressing that it was sunny and in the 80's, now we are back in Iowa and supposed to get snow tonight.
