Stayed on ground floor unit adjacent to swimming pool & close to BBQ area. Private patio & garden outside. Handy to marina & Boat club. Easy walk to tour boats. Grounds & facilities are very good and gate entry system works well. A mix of guests and permanent residents in a friendly environment. Nice place and area to stay.
