In between hiking along the seashore and day tripping to the islands, you can find some leisure time at the resort. Take a swim in our outdoor heated pool, spread a blanket on the lawn for a picnic, or curl up with a new beach read or go back in the past and watch a dvd movie from our lending library. After a day of sight-seeing play an evening round of tennis on one of our two lighted courts. Kids can enjoy the clubhouse playroom, complete with books, puzzles, games, and crafts. There’s even a place on our grounds for volleyball, horseshoes, and shuffleboard.
Our spacious town homes are a bit older but are settled in a wooded neighborhood of lantern-lit walkways and neatly kept grounds. Each townhouse is tastefully furnished and family-friendly, with thoughtful amenities such as a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, and a weekly linen service to keep you supplied with fresh sheets and towels. You’ll find plenty of room to spread out in each of the two or three bedrooms, with ample closet and bureau space, comfortable bedding, and cable television. The kitchen is fully equipped, so whether you’re just brewing your morning coffee or whipping up a gourmet feast, you’ll find whatever you need. A private patio and grill makes a perfect spot for dining al fresco.
