My husband and I stayed for a month this spring in one of the medium size cottages, and had a fantastic time. The cottages were cute, cozy, and had everything we needed. When we asked for something at the office, the staff always helped us with what we needed. They even called around to find things for us to do...

This has got to be the biggest ripoff on the whole island!! When you look at a room, they show you the one cottage that's kept in decent condition. And then when you check-in you realize you got taken . The cottages smell like mold and it takes less than 12hours for the mold and mildew to show back up...
