    2/5

    I’ll start with the good first- the beach! The shells were abundant even without going at low tide! That’s it all the good I have to say! The bad - upon check in there was a lady in front of me and she was being assisted one employee asked another to do something and the response she got was less then cordial- it was down right rude and in front of guests! The brochure at the the desk said all rooms had been remodeled- if they had it was in 1970’s the room was old and ran down, comforter is like one my grandmother owned when I was a child, huge gap above and below the door which allowed the no seems to come inside ( biting bugs), room smelled very musky, the bathroom had areas in wall that were in need of patching and were holes in it, the window above the bed was of course right next to the cabin next door and about the time we went to bed the cabin renter decided was a good time to turn on the lights and place her dog outside to bark for a LONG time, the entry door had what looked liked frosted glass to avoid others looking in but when we looked at it we realized it was just a piece of plastic taped on the window—- I WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN!!!!!

    First of many stays

    Upon being told how nice a place this was, I took the recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. The location was good, accommodation was clean and the beach was 20 yards from my door. Staff were very friendly allowed the wife and I too check in early as we had flown through the night to arrive during the late morning. Local restaurants were plenty and excellent. For its location, this place is an absolute must go to and my family and I will be returning for sure.
