Or first time staying there. The colors were really fun and the patio area nice with a grill and comfy chairs. We were in the Hideaway. It was cozy and comfortable. The free bikes and washer & dryer were an unexpected plus. The manager Ron was great. We would definitely stay there again. Loved it.

We just stayed at SandCastle -- Unit 1 for the holiday weekend and had a terrific stay. The cottage wasn't Four Seasons luxury, but it included everything we could possibly need and was very quiet, clean and comfortable. Great patio deck with grill. The location is a short 5 minute walk to the beach. Not much else within walking distance,...

Looking for low key and relaxing, well The PalmView is your place!!! We have stayed here multiple times throughout the years and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else because it always feels like home. The PalmView offers all the amenities you need. If you like to explore the island on bike there's plenty of bikes on site for your use...

This place has all you need, and then some. Beautiful large accommodations, meticulously maintained grounds. Easy short walk access to the beach; easy access to local restaurants and shops with complimentary bicycles. Or you can just enjoy the barbecue and have drinks under the tiki table. The proprietor was charming and always helpful. Rates were really worth what you get...

By far the best kept secret on the island. Accommodations were exceptionally clean while Captains' Ed Cottage was complete with a small kitchen, beach chairs, umbrellas and even comp bike rentals. The location though not on the beach, literally is 2 minutes away. Ron, the Manager constantly asked what he could do to make our stay better...he is not only...

Kids loved their twin beds. 5 minutes walk to the beach, and very convenient...

“If there is no duplex, I'd go for that. There was one "duplex" where the units were separated by a banquet hall of sorts. If no banquet was going on, I'd choose to be in one of those units as your neighbor would not be on the other side of your wall. One of those units was closest unit to the street. However, there was not a whole lot of traffic on the street while we were there. Virtually none at night, and one of our nights was New Year's Eve. There was a unit attached to the office that seemed furthest from the street. I might go for that one first.”
