Beautiful immaculate surroundings. Guests pampered with wonderful breakfasts and amenities. Enjoyed the heated pool, hammock, and billiards table. Shelly was an excellent host. We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. We will return.

Shell and Ned are wonderful hosts who anticipate your needs. Need a fridge for your leftovers or tomorrow's lunch? They have one for you already. Need a washer and dryer for towels when you return from the beach? Got ones just for the guests. Want a warm heated salt water pool with towels when you get back from the beach?... More
