The perfect place to stay on Maggie island. Clean, friendly, helpful staff, has everything on hand from all pool BBQ necessaries to a scooter and car to use. I'll definitely be back for the magnificent ocean views.

Spent two nights in a lovely apartment, 2 seconds walk to the beachfront! Lovely living area and balcony. Good shower. Great for a beach side stay! Great kitchenette with everything you need, having a laundry is very handy too.

Just spent a very relaxing week staying at Sails on Horseshoe. The managers Phil and Kathy were so accommodating and couldn't do enough for you to ensure a great stay. Apartment 3 was smart, clean, had everything you could need, and is situated just across the road from the beach. Will definitely be back. Loved it.
