Honeymoon/ fishing trip
Close enough to everything but far enough away. We had a very relaxing stay at the bungalow. It was very clean and equipped with just about everything you could need. Very spacious! The ice machine was a huge plus!! My husband loved the mattress . Said he had the best sleep of his life. . We really ejoyed our stay. The neighborhood was quiet and the dock out back was very peaceful in the morning while having our coffee. We will be back. My husband is already planning a fishing trip with our boys.
