Beautiful! Be ready to rough it a little... No A/C but the area in May was bare-able at night. Rainy season is for real. Anticipate that. Didn't take away from the beauty in any way. Just felt excited to "dry up" after a week. Shower towels didn't even dry during the day. Keeping their "off the grid" "enviro" trend going, it was sometimes difficult deciding between asking for dry towels and/or going 3 straight days of drying yourself with a wet towel. Seems trivial but that's literally the only downside I found. Amazing food, amazing area. Pricey but understandable after realizing how far and removed you are. Can't be cheap to get supplies out there. Not fancy but charming and full of character.
AREA: Not suited for inconsiderate, know-it-alls. If you have any disrespect for the environment, ocean, other humans or have a selfish attitude on a point break or that co-existing is just a hippie thing and that you think that people around you should just accept how "you" feel like spending your time, then you will stand out like a soar thumb and be pushed out of that area by Cosmic & Spiritual Energy...you wouldn't even understand how or why people are so happy just relaxing, going to bed early, appreciating health and quality surf. You would be depressed from the simple thought that you will never achieve that level of self-actualisation and contentment without getting s$%^faced every night. That's what Daytona Beach is for... I hear that the drinks are 2 for 1!! Please reschedule. :)
