First time here. Only about a half mile from restaurants. Checkin: don't even think about being a couple of minutes late on Saturday. There is a lockbox, though. Were in the separate motel on second floor, so did not have ocean view. Had clean, one-bedroom unit. Sofa and chairs not too comfortable. Bed - ok if you bring a mattress... More

Our beachfront resort features 18 apartments that are do not directly face the beach and 34 that do. The one bedroom apartments that do not face the beach are larger than those that do. We are a timeshare resort. It would be great to be open 24/7 but one of our goals is to keep our owners' maintenance fees low... More

We had a very nice two bedroom unit facing the ocean. You could not ask for a prettier view of the ocean, or better sunsets. This resort was very clean, but the rooms could use some updating. The only downfall is the amenities. It has shuffleboard, tennis, bikes, volleyball, and movies. While these activities are listed as amenities, you can... More

We stayed there the third week of June. The condo was very clean, king size bed very comfortable and the full kitchen including dishwasher was very pleasing.

Thank you for taking your time to review our resort. We wish all of our timeshare apartments were on the beach side of our property.
