We had a wonderful stay! Perfect beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Reef for the week after Christmas. It was beautifully decorated with updates. It's an old cottage, so you just have to know that is part of the charm. We had a family of 5, so it was a bit small for us, but we knew that going into it. It was amazing to walk out the door and be so close to the sand and ocean! The location is awesome, we walked to dinner at Crabby Bills, to the Island Surf Shop, the donut shop, and CVS several times. We also ordered pizza from Slyce Pizza Bar and it was top of the line taste! There were many other restaurants right there in short walking distance that we did not get the chance to try out. The streets are perfect for biking and running with bike/run lanes. We met the owners and managers and they were extremely friendly and personable, as well as the neighbors in other cottages who were staying on the property. The beach isn't too crowded, it's just right. We drove a short 15 min. to John's Pass and shopped and ate great seafood. We also ate dinner at Lulu's Oyster Bar (which is easily walkable) and the food was excellent. We appreciated the laundry unit close by and it made it easy to do towels, etc. The new spa pool was a perfect temperature for winter. We would definitely return but stay at one of the larger cottages next time. Thanks for everything!
