Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely week at this condo. Gorgeous sunset view. Quick access to small town with excellent Short’s Brewery and Bee Well cider and mead tasting room. Pool was very convenient and beach access was awesome. Owner is very easy to work with. Condo is in need of a few small updates (doors sticking/not sliding, stove and kitchen utensils are aged) but beds and seating were very comfortable. A great place for a small family.

Great stay at the McCain's condo #705

  • 5 of 5

Surely enjoyed the comfort and location of the condo.

Fabulous view, of course. Close enough to the Shanty

Lodge, but away from the congestion. Also visited the

lake front beach club.

Played golf ,and did some boating and hiking too.

No stairs to clamor with. Bring your bird identification

guide, the trees are full. Thanks for making it a great

homestead for our vacation. C.S.Koon

AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a 5 star condo, look no further, this is the place for you. The view is amazing, the accommodations are first class and we would recommend it to anyone.

The beds are comfortable (king size bed is awesome), great communication with the host, and best of all, outstanding value for the money.

We also enjoyed the complementary shuttle to the event we were attending. But, not to worry, you're not far from a variety of restaurants/activities if you choose to venture out.

Please consider this for your next vacation.
