Rooms are great! People are cool! and the atmosphere chill. My advice....pay up for the view from the balcony. I really like how once they have my card on file and as a guest I can use the bar and grill and not worry about carrying my wallet or credit card around. Super easy.

We loved the accommodations, super modern, white linens, very comfortable and well equipped. Loved the outside shower to get ride of the sand before entering the house.Only issue was the dryer didn't work properly so we had to put things in for 3 full cycles to get them to dry. I did call the front desk, but it was not fixed during the week we were there. Also it would be great to have a vacuum to use for longer stays, such as ours, since house cleaning doesn't come during your stay unless you pay extra.

Thank you for some great feed back! I am sorry the dryer took a bit long to be fixed but it is up and working now!! Great suggestion about the vacuum cleaner. We would love to have you come back and see us! The Cabanas are convenient for the beach and if you are into kiteboarding right across the street.

Hope to see you soon!

Located about halfway down the island, Watermen's is great for water sports fans and beach bums a like. Try to get a bay-side view. The rooms are well appointed with up to date entertainment devices, washer and dryer. The bed in the master bedroom was large but there were complaints about the other bed size. Being next to Reel Seafood is a plus. We drove to a beach because it was really wet and soggy but folks say that you can walk to a nearby beach too.

Room tip: bay-side has great views of the sunset and end of day kite boarders

So glad you had a great visit! We have two and three bedroom suites. The 2 bedroom has a king and a queen and the 3 bedroom has 2 king beds and a queen. The Cabanas across the street have 2 and 3 bedrooms with the two bedroom having a king with the second room having two twins and then the 3 bedroom Cabana has a king, a queen and 2 twin beds. Hopefully we can meet most people's needs. Weather is good through late fall (and beyond) and rates are 50% off starting October 8th.
We hope to see you again!

Beautiful views and accommodations. The 3 bedroom penthouse was perfect for a mid week getaway to learn to kite board. The unit was absolutely perfect. Love that you don't have to go an entire week. We will definitely be back!
