While the atmosphere was unique, like being on an old rum runner, the after effects were horrible. We had to isolate all our clothing for weeks and seek medical treatment from the bugs. Go camping instead!

No boat ramp. Terrible parking. Woke up to homeless just outside my door. Mold in shower. No working wifi No tiki "bar"... A bar has a bartender and drinks get served. This has 5 stools and no one serving drinks. You have to bring what you are drinking. Mosquitos are terrible!!! Very small. Any hotel room is larger.

This place was a great find for my husband and I. I was a little skeptical at first because of some of the reviews but this place is everything as advertised plus more. The cottage was clean and cute and very cozy. The cottage also had silverware, cups and plates available if needed. Also there was access to a tiki... More

This was so Bad. Roaches, ants, mold in the bathroom. It never cooled down. Loud ac units. We booked early being told that we could be next to our friends we were meeting there since some of the cottages have patios that connect. But they changed their minds and said they could put us anywhere they wanted. Don't book here.... More

Where do I start?? We were put in the main building with a connecting door to the room on our left which meant the paper-thin walls kept even less noise out. Every night we had to listen to two televisions plus other peoples' conversations. The air-conditioning unit was in the bathroom and was cheap and noisy with a warning not... More

In my opinon. These cottages are far from A Paradise. We arrived in the afternoon to our cottage, it is quaint, and run down. It was a rainy day outside and inside. Our roof had a leak,so they switched our cottage to another run down let me call it a Shack. Tile chipped, smoke detector in new cottage is sitting... More

The room and staff were lovely. No pool, no ice or vending machines and no beach access at all. The air conditioning in our cottage was a window unit too small to cool the room. We actually bought a fan too get through the night.

When we chose this place, we didn't realize that our friend was only 2 minutes away and our other friend's canvas shop was just across the street. Oh so convenient. We were in Cottage #5 and it was clean with a king sized bed. Everything we needed was there and if you needed more room for friends they have a... More

The cottages looked cute and clean on the internet and had pretty good reviews, so we booked a cottage for a two night stay. We arrived in the evening and the office was dark and locked. We waited for a while hoping someone would show up, but no one did and no one answered the phone when we tried to... More
