          Love the ambience at this motel. The management is awesome and the grounds are super clean and cute. So close to the beach and all the best restaurants. Great beach views and only 2 short block walk to Moonlight Beach.

          Most of what you need is already in the kitchen, but if you need more items, just ask Deb and George and they will equip you. :)
