    These are charming little cottages with the feel of old time Florida in a wonderful way. They have a firepit and gathering spaces near the beach and wonderful beachfront with a boardwalk to the beach sands and water.

    Yes! All cottages are air conditioned. You also have the option to turn off the air & open windows during the seasons that are conducive to it.
