When you're not exploring the island, you'll love spending your leisure time at this unique, family-friendly retreat. Beautiful hardwood floors create a cool, comfortable place to relax while watching TV or surfing the free WiFi. Pick up some fresh fish from the market and fix yourself a delicious seafood dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, then head downstairs to the covered mezzanine to dine in the open air as the ocean sparkles in the distance. For a small fee, you can even bring your canine friends along to join in the fun too! (Two dogs max, please.)

Our smart home technology will alert our team if excessive decibel or occupancy levels are detected, allowing us to reach out directly with a friendly reminder rather than risking a noise complaint from a neighbor. This technology is privacy compliant, and only monitors the presence of decibels and devices—not any personal conversation or information.
