Amazing place to stay. The pictures don’t do it justice. Can’t beat staying by the water. I also love how clean everything felt there.

Great no frills location at the beach
The staff went out of their way to make my stay great. They even provided me with a bottle opener and some copy paper when I asked for it! Comfortable and clean and beautiful view.
