My wife and I just got married here on Saturday 5 January 2019. There is so much to say! We had an amazing time, along with all of our guests as well. The general atmosphere and the quality of the rooms were very satisfying. We received a ton of compliments on the food quality

We went during the winter months so the place was pretty empty. Overall it was very nice, but doesn't take away that this is ultimately a three star property. Nothing against the service, or the cleanliness, or anything else, buts its just the level of the property.

I don’t share Joe’s view. All the units are privately owned. The updated ones will probably run you a little more. I don’t think it’s run down at all. The grounds are beautiful, I love the place and plan on going back this fall. Security is good the place is clean and well maintained.Check out the pics of the unit and witch way they face. The place is great 👍 C

Hi Kelly you have several different options. All of our rooms face the water. Our Beach Suites look out over the main Beach and you can tie up there and it's complementary. The other option would be one of our Bay rooms or Cove rooms. To reserve a spot for your jet skis in the cove is a $60 per night charge. The Cove spots are reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis so you want to be sure and Reserve that when you make your room reservation. Please let us know if you have any additional questions, we're happy to help. See you soon.
