Really enjoyed our week staying at this property. Very well equipped kitchen and the house has everything you need. Great for two families or a group of fisherman.

Great place with a fire pit

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Orchid Beach Retreat and will do it again. We were two families and it worked perfectly for us. Great open kitchen where we could all pitch in and prepare meals and picnics for our days adventure. A little disappointed one of the queen beds was not in a private bedroom, but a sleepout style that we had to walk through to get to the main bedroom. Great breezeway style outdoor area and loved the wood fire in the living area and fire pit outside for those very cold winter nights we had.
