Left on 05/04/2011 for a stay in August 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 4, 2011Stayed Aug 2010
We loved the house and the amenities.It was clean and lots of privacy and communal space.
We would have loved to have known that the area was as desolate as it turned out to be. The development is not built and the houses nearby unoccupied which was a bit creepy really. Two eating options outside the home were actually quite a distance away and also completely empty the few times we went out to eat. So you really have to be willing to invest in the chef/food pick up option for this house.
But we enjoyed the house alot and the beach (which was pretty much a private beach) was great! We were traveling with a group of 4 teens who were able to entertain themselves since there was nobody else nearby.
Overall an amazing home in a unique location that may not be for everyone
