PRO TIPS FOR THE BEST STAY
Renting a golf cart is a MUST! Drive them around the adorable neighborhood or take them down on the beach! We highly recommend taking a night ride under the stars next to the ocean. Also, be sure to take advantage of the beach chair and umbrella rental! Strolling up to reserved chairs is a huge perk and makes the day hassle-free!
