Awesome place to stay right on the water!!
With in 5 mins to just about everywhere you may need to go. Nice pool, private dock, and kayaks for those who like to venture out around the mangroves! Family really enjoyed the stay.
Guests staying at homes on the property where friendly and nice. Never felt awkward saying hello, down home family atmosphere!!

The property is great for families and friends spending time together. The house definitely has been loved well and needs a few minor repairs. The kitchen has a lot of random tools you may not expect which we found super helpful for the stormy days--- mixers, pizza cutters, etc. We had two two year olds in the group and they had great kitchen/dinnerware for little kids. plenty of towels and linens for the group, HUGE closets in two of the rooms. Overall a great trip and would definitely stay again!

"Christmas at it's finest"

by Jonah


Our family was here during Christmas we had an amazing time! We would absolutely recommend this home to anyone who will listen LOL The pool was perfect and heated! Seated Bar outside the pool wished there had been a TV by the bar for my husband and Brother in law to watch their sports...other than that we had no complaints whatsoever! The dock is so long it holds lots of boats! there was a sandy area for our children to build sandcastles. The home has everything you could need to cook your meals which saves money on restaurants! Book your stay here you will not be disappointed!

"Great home"

by Alex


My family had a very relaxing vacation at this site We loved the pool! It was shared but it is really big so we felt like we had plenty of space and didn't mind sharing! our home had a private hot tub for our family only! The home itself is spacious. The managers were on point any questions we had were answered immediately. We will be back
