Location is perfect, quick walk to the beach and local restaurants, and short drive to other beaches and activities. The groundskeepers and concierge were incredibly nice and helpful and the property is absolutely beautiful. Inside of the units is very nice, all appliances work great. Would recommend to anybody staying in the area.
