Mitchell's Sandcastles is located in an ideal setting for a very laid-back and relaxing holiday. Really, I can't say enough how peaceful it was to wake up to the sound of crashing waves every morning or to sit on the screened-in patio at sunset.
One of the drawbacks I would say is the proximity of the cottages to each other. There was one night that the tenants at the adjacent to our cottage decided to grill - and used about an entire bottle of lighter fluid. The stench stayed in our cottage from the time we left for dinner and drinks (because we couldn't stand the smell) until the time we came back and went to sleep.
We stayed at the Sea Grape and loved the quaintness of the cottage. The only problem we had was with the very (VERY) noisy bed.
We did, however, have the unfortunate pleasure of vacationing during a very stormy weekend. It rained nearly all day when we first arrived and then on and off downpours the remainder of our stay. We could not exit or enter our cotage without getting drenched by the rain water coming from the roof. There is no gutter and the only entrance is a storm door right under the edge of the roof.
Overall, I would recommend this place because of it's location. Probably great for families, definitely pet-friendly, but no the ideal place for a romantic get-away.
