These cottages are right on the private beach where amazing seashells wash up on your feet as you stand at the edge of the surf. Piles and piles of shells are located on the beach. It's a sheller's paradise! Cottage was clean and well equipped....More

Our last stay there we had a similar experience - we did pay with a credit card and was refunded $30.00 because we had no water for over 48 hours. Seriously? What an insult! My husband and I have stayed at Tropical Winds MANY times, even got married on the beach there, but we are shopping for a new location to stay. The ants, the hairy bathroom and NO water was enough to not bring me back!
