The pool and outdoor furniture were very clean and tidy. The owners are some of the most friendly and accomodating people I have ever met. Beach access is less than a 5... More

Spent three nights here (last minute) with friends earlier this month as a result of hurricaine Matthew. What a gem. Dave and Adele were fantastic hosts. Had fantastic one bedroom apartments around pool. Immaculate, clean and modern. Great atmosphere. Close to beach. Would definitely return if in the area and recommend to friends.

Location, motel room, pool, BBQ grill and owner Dave were all great!!! Next to restaurants, shops, beach and fishing. Walk anywhere within 500 ft. of the motel and you have something fun to do!!! Can't wait to go back for a longer stay!!!

These apartments are perfect. Full kitchen, bath, living room, bedroom. Clean and well maintained. The owners are so friendly and hospitable. I am proud to say they have become our friends.

This by far was one of the best places I have stayed at in a very long time. Quaint and comfortable. Not fancy, or showy but definitely worth every penny. Cleanest condo style room, and quiet.
