The layout of the house and property was ideally suited to our needs, with lots of outdoor living space to enjoy as a group. We were a group of adults and children, and everyone loved the space. The staff took such good care of us - Donny is a delight and Miss Rose kept our bellies full - we felt very well treated. We were nervous about the beach not being private, but we had no reason to worry - it was mostly secluded and was a wonderful swimming spot. It was really nice to be able to wander up and down the beach at length. Being an hour away from the airport is the perfect distance - not too far to have to travel, but far enough away from the noise and population of the airport. We very much look forward to our next trip to Sweet Spot.
