My husband and I had a remarkable experience staying at this property. Impeccably clean rooms & property, owner left out no details (beach chairs, beach towels, ALL the comforts of home besides your toiletries!!)Very quiet, shady property - lovely screened porch to enjoy coffe in the am and cocktails in the pm. Walking distance to several restaurants, bars, Walgreens, etc. Beach is only a short walk (1.5 blocks at best). Oh - and the beach chairs - they are GREAT - wear them like a back pack and your hands-free walking to the beach. The property owner, Elaine Fitzgerald, was very accomodating as was the maintenance guy Paul. You are missing out on a great value if you pass up this property. Only drawback, no pool - but that wasn't important to us. Elaine told me though that one of the nearby hotels will allow you to use their pool if you buy food and beverages at the tiki bar outside (Sandpiper). We did some diving during our stay and the shower & hose directly behind our unit (and all units) allowed us to clean up our dive gear easily. And - it's only a 15 min or so drive to the Isle Casino and Horse Track - lots of fun if you've never seen harness racing. The casino was a blast too! We look forward to returning and sharing our "find" with all of our friends!!
