This place would be absolutely amazing if I didn’t have upstairs neighbors with concrete shoes on, trying to get their step count for the day before ten a.m. I wish I was here long enough to take advantage of the beach cruisers, paddle boards and range balls. But really wish I could sleep in. Thanks for the beautiful room and the great service.

The property is cute, well designed and offers great amenities! However, our room looked like it had seen better days. There were dark stains on both the carpet and ceiling, our toilet was running/wouldn’t flush, and the door to our mini fridge wouldn’t close all the way. The bed also was VERY creaky with even the lightest sit on it. There was a small bathroom sink/counter that is poorly lit and hard to get ready at. We felt that the quality/4 star resort level they boasted was only surface level and was very much lacking in the details
