The chalet we stayed in was number 15. it was well toward the back and the perfect blend of peace and tranquility. It has a rustic cabin feel outside with an interior of all wood that projects a warm feeling. We ate out each evening but a fridge, stove, etc. were available if a person wanted to cook. Free wifi is also available in each room. The owners were extremely helpful to any questions or needs we had. One of the coolest things about the property is their beach access. The beach is directly across the road and a short walk though the woods. I would guess no more than 50 yards. Lovely path and a wooden bridge over the creek to boot. The beach is nice sand with a few widely scattered large boulders that cause interesting effects in the rising or sinking tides. On two separate nights the owners loaned us their beach chairs. We watched the sun set over the far horizon and the moon rise over the surf. Incredibly beautiful and romantic.
If you are looking for a 5 star hotel then this isn't what you are seeking. If however you want nice accommodations with a rustic feel, beach access, peace, quiet, and good folks to rent from that are most helpful and kind then you might just want to give this Chalet a try!
