This place was a great find for my husband and I. I was a little skeptical at first because of some of the reviews but this place is everything as advertised plus more. The cottage was clean and cute and very cozy. The cottage also had silverware, cups and plates available if needed. Also there was access to a tiki...

This was so Bad. Roaches, ants, mold in the bathroom. It never cooled down. Loud ac units. We booked early being told that we could be next to our friends we were meeting there since some of the cottages have patios that connect. But they changed their minds and said they could put us anywhere they wanted. Don't book here....

Where do I start?? We were put in the main building with a connecting door to the room on our left which meant the paper-thin walls kept even less noise out. Every night we had to listen to two televisions plus other peoples' conversations. The air-conditioning unit was in the bathroom and was cheap and noisy with a warning not...

Simple cute cottages, well done, neat, very clean, nice beds. in need of some renovations, could use some extra cabin kitchen amities. The cabins are not...

In my opinon. These cottages are far from A Paradise. We arrived in the afternoon to our cottage, it is quaint, and run down. It was a rainy day outside and inside. Our roof had a leak,so they switched our cottage to another run down let me call it a Shack. Tile chipped, smoke detector in new cottage is sitting...

The room and staff were lovely. No pool, no ice or vending machines and no beach access at all. The air conditioning in our cottage was a window unit too small to cool the room. We actually bought a fan too get through the night.

When we chose this place, we didn't realize that our friend was only 2 minutes away and our other friend's canvas shop was just across the street. Oh so convenient. We were in Cottage #5 and it was clean with a king sized bed. Everything we needed was there and if you needed more room for friends they have a...

The cottages looked cute and clean on the internet and had pretty good reviews, so we booked a cottage for a two night stay. We arrived in the evening and the office was dark and locked. We waited for a while hoping someone would show up, but no one did and no one answered the phone when we tried to...

We were 3 adults requiring a room for one night and were booked into No 1, which had a separate double bedroom and pull-out bed settee in the living area. It also had a super little front porch where you could sit out with morning coffee, or an evening beverage, and watch the goings-on. Whilst small, the unit was very...
