My husband and I stayed here for 4 days over the Memorial Day holiday The location and views are really wonderful. Grab a bottle of wine and watch the sunset from the patio for a real treat. We stayed in a 1 bedroom / 2 bath unit on the first floor which was spacious and well appointed. We liked the fireplace...but the main asset was the view of the bay. The biggest negative was that the pool and hot tub were not big enough for the number of guests and that there was no adult section...so we couldn't use any of the amenities...who wants to sit in a hot tub crowded with young kids? ...not a relaxing idea...for that reason alone, I would most likly not go back, but over all it was a nice experience.
