were did your we**am go?
Have never stayed. Need about 4-5 units for a family gathering. What's the easiest way to book them all so we all have a place to stay #1 and #2... East or West? Which units face towards the gulf? How much extra is it to rent additional umbrella and chair?
Staying the month of Nov. has not been the relaxing time at the beach. Remodeling !!!!!! Getting woke up at 7am, and something people working after 10pm. Someone should have let us know that this was to be going on ALL MONTH. Very disappointed this trip!!!!!!!!
Great place to vacation, to meet with friends and enjoy the wonderful weather. The staff is friendly and helpful.
