Steps from the beach
On site restaurant was fantastic and our 1 bedroom had a fireplace, mini fridge and patio with an ocean view...all just steps away from a private beach.

A luxurious beach escape
A beautiful, serene, luxurious place to stay. I don’t like not having access to my vehicle. My husband left his coat in the car and I didn’t want to call to have the golf cart take me to my car to retrieve it. Not the best place for people with limited mobility.

Still love this place
My wife and I have stayed here a few times and love it. We usually get the deluxe ocean front room , but this last stay we got a room that had an upstairs room also and so it was a little bit noisy. Also the blinds on the windows were not very good, too short for the window and some were improperly placed in the slats.
