The condo was beautiful, meticulously maintained and a fabulous getaway. The view from the balcony is exceptional. A very quiet and peaceful area. Will definitely go back again and stay longer next time!

I love the fact that the beach was right across the way. The home was cozy and comfortable. Plenty of pots and pans so we could cook together!! Everything felt good and we definitely will be back.
