The property area gives you the feel of Old Florida, and are fun. .The Hideaway Cottage is a Beach Apartment in a four unit large building on the first floor between a group of Cottages . It is clean, remodel 2015 with high end kitchen featuring Samsung Stainless Steel appliances , Granite tops , all new bath fixtures and tub, and new furniture, 42 inch LCD wall mounted TV and DVD video entertainment center master bedroom, 19 LCD TV s in Children's room and 32 inch in living room.( total 4 wall LCD TV s.) Air conditioner in each bedroom, and heat in large living room, Large double closets, full size stainless steel LG refrigerator and new ceramic glass Stainless Steel LG stove., Well heeled travelers looking for upscale resort should rent at the condos across the street as we sometimes cannot meet the expectations of very fancy folks and don't want to as we love families with kids, laid back guests who want to enjoy the beach at a great value and have fun. We are just behind the Condos on the sand, and 2 blocks north of the Sand pearl Hotel. Upscale demanding guests should stay there, fun loving families will share the same world class beach with Capt.
