We stayed in the Bird's Nest Cottage Apr.'14 for 4 nights. We were greeted by Mark, the proprietor, who was pleasant and guided us into our parking site. Bird's nest is the smallest of their accommodations, it was available for the dates that my daughter and I were available. We were happy with the location & the lending bikes which made it easy to travel and enjoy the Ding Darling Wildlife refuge nearby. Beach chairs which could be carried like a back pack and an umbrella were available as well as a parking pass. Towels were fluffy and substantial, nicer than some higher end hotels I've stayed in. I was informed on booking that no facility for in door cooking was available in this unit, but a nice refrig /w small freezer & microwave were provided. The only sink was in a very compact bathroom, it was a challenge to clean any dishware we used for coffee or food. We saw birds right outside our window and had an enclosed yard /w a charcoal grill which we did not use, but might have if we stayed longer.
