We loved the grounds. Beautiful gardens and lawns. Beautifully maintained and manicured. Great restaurant, pool. Nice and quiet. We loved the smell of plumeria in the night air. My grandchildren really loved our cottage and the gardens.

Great secluded cottage. Perfect for families. Only downfall - window air conditioner in only main bedroom. Makes for a VERY HOT cottage. Staff was GREAT!! Loved the ocean access and pool access. We had a great time!

Great place. We rented 3 cottages for three nights. We were pleasantly surprised at the roominess, the clean rooms, the beds, the bathrooms, kitchen, living rooms and porches. We also enjoyed the beach, the pool, shuffleboard, and the chairs outside.

After booking in January 2019, we found out about 5 weeks before arrival that the cottages had one living room window A/C/ We booked a 3 bedroom unit and knew that one window unit would not cool the cottage. I called the front desk at that time and stated that due to an health issue, we would nee bedroom A/Cs. They said it would be taken care of. When we arrived there was one portable A/C unit in one bedroom. We requested another A/C unit for another bedroom. When it arrived and plugged in, it blew a fuse several times. We had to sleep in the heat to get another cabin the following day. The second cottage had two portable and one window A/C. We could not use the hair dryer because it would blow a fuse. The A/C was OK. Read less

Spacious, clean. Had the feel of a plantation home. Only downside was that there was no air conditioning in the living room and kitchen. That wasn't a big issue for us as we were typically gone during the day. The bedrooms all had their own air conditioners so we were able to sleep comfortably. Restaurant onsite had excellent barbeque.
