Positive Reviews

Vintage Florida Style

The interiors give an 'Old Florida' feel and the décor provides an instantly laid-back feel which helps guests to unwind and relax. The rooms feature wicker and rattan furniture, ceiling fans and are bright and airy. The owners also provide outdoor furniture and beach umbrellas.

Spectacular Sunsets

Situated as they are right on and close to the beach, those staying here can avail of some stunning sunsets during the evenings. Guests can avail of outdoor seats at a barbecue area set in the dunes and watch the sun go down while enjoying a drink or their own grilled food.

Peaceful and Private

Many guests find that the beach feels as if it is theirs alone as there are rarely other people on it. This adds to the overall feeling of peace and quiet, which helps guests to truly relax.

Negative Reviews

Rather Small Rooms

Both the cottages and the beach units are compact, designed to offer somewhere clean, relaxing and functional to stay in when not on the beach or sampling one of the local restaurants. However, some found them rather too small and feel that the considering the small size, the accommodation is somewhat overpriced.

A Little Too Remote

While some love the tranquility offered by this accommodation, others find that it is too far from the main town area. Going out to eat requires either a long walk or having to drive there and back, rather than the convenience of having eateries, shopping and bars being right on the doorstep.

A Little Old Fashioned

The Old Florida relaxed style suited some guests; others found that the interiors were a little to worn and old for their tastes. An overall update of the furniture, paint and fittings would bring the accommodation back up to a better standard.
