    Just OK

    Cottage we stayed in was very dated, small, and not anywhere worth the price paid. Staff was friendly. Beach was within walking distance. Surrounding neighborhoods were nice to walk in. Left for home a day early. Only good thing to say about this resort is it has great pickle ball courts.

    Good beach location

    This is a small but very nice resort. Only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Depending on the location, the units have either a golf course view (18th hole) or a canal view. Both are very nice. Units have a small deck.

    Enjoyed Our Stay

    The unit was clean, well appointed, and comfortable. The grounds were well kept. We had a nice view of the golf course and could easily walk to the beach. There was a very nice restaurant within walking distance, as well as a restaurant at the golf course next door.

    Dissappointed with RCI accommodations and performance.

    The quality of the RCI units is far below par with the rest of the Villages units, The units were older but needed to be updated. Location next to the pickle ball courts and the noise from the leaf blowers at 5:30am kept us from the relaxing vacation we had anticipated.

    RCI incompetency

    This is not a review of this property itself but rather of RCI in general. There customer service is abysmal. We booked this reservation after an extensive search to ensure that the unit had a ground floor bedroom as my wife's 88 year old mother was traveling with us. When we went to confirm it after a one day hold, RCI had taken the points from the wrong deposit. They took the points from a deposit scheduled to expire a year earlier (Apr 20) than one expiring in 2021. When we called to correct this after a long series of conversations they cancelled the unit we had booked and arbitrarily booked another unit that does not have a ground floor bedroom. It has been nearly impossible to get this straight and to date has still not been resolved.
