It was great... I can't add anymore than I have already said... It was awesome.. all of it. I was really touched by the dog treats and do dishes in my room to the girl at reception that babysat my dog after her shift so I could go for a massage. Thank you so much for the great experience.

Had a great visit-- even had a winter storm in September. It would be nice to have more bench seating outside. Years ago the resort had a big clothing section , which my wife and friends took full advantage of.

A lovely accommodation--the place was lovely. Beds were fantastic. We really enjoyed the view and the walk to the point was gorgeous. Loved the stormier day as well, to see the waves crashing in the bay was awesome. No complaints!

We were given a $500 gift certificate from our son and daughter-in-law and were excited to have a 2 night stay. It was the most expensive place we have ever stayed per night. We were expecting a larger unit (the kitchen is so tiny that the microwave is barely usable), the bed is in the living room. We had a...
