This home had so many great features. We loved the deck that overlooked the ocean. Even in the back bedroom you could hear the waves all night long! Who doesn’t love that? The beds were comfy. It’s a very comfortable home for a small group On an extended weekend.

Our family had a great visit at Island in the Sun(Upper). We enjoyed the convenience of being on the beach. Being on the second floor, allows for more privacy, an incredible view and a feeling of safety. The unit was very clean as is the beach. Thank you!

Watching sunset from the deck and snuggling in a warm blanket while drinking my coffee in the morning were definitely highlights.

Have been staying at Rio Del Mar homes for over 30 years. Liked this home due to location in the beach. Small but the view was worth the size. Had a great week of sun.
