The owners did a great job creating an oasis of calm just off US1. Once you are in the resort, you feel so far away from the traffic and enter into a beautiful resort. The cottage, while not spacious, was well designed, and the space was used very efficiently. We especially enjoyed our private deck, and the waterfront views from Cottage 1 (ask for this room, it is worth it), or you can just so sit at the well appointed tiki hut, or sleep on the hammock. The bed was super comfortable. Kayaking is also available. The rooms were cleaned every day. The owners, Mike and Carol, made great recommendations for what to do and where to eat. They were really great hosts and made us feel so welcome. You can see all their attention to detail. We will definitely return to this wonderful resort for future visits. One small suggestion, ti would be nice to have packs of coffee in the room for breakfast.
