Positive Reviews

You won't starve!

There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. A real favorite is the Dry Dock Grill, less than 10 minutes drive and where the oysters are unforgettable. Equally, the self-caterer should call in to the Publix convenience store and pick up a king crab for easy grilling.

Peace + quiet.

Forget the noisy touristy attractions, surf shops and crowds; just relax in what is a perfectly peaceful haven. These units are fully equipped to include beach chairs and towels so you don't need to go anywhere .. unless you want to.

Sunny days and sunny staff smiles.

Happy, caring staff are on hand to show you the ropes and offer any advice so that you enjoy your visit here to the full.

Negative Reviews

It's not difficult to mock the Turtle.

It's an old building in need of repair. Units leave much to be desired, with broken accessories, uncleaned rooms and dirty bedding. Certainly not the heavenly haven that was described.

Lack of investment from greedy owners.

If some of the owners had any business acumen, they'd realize the importance of 'return' business. That won't materialize if visitors feel ripped off. Instead, the visitor arrives to find the place in a state of disrepair with cobwebs, mold and unrepaired damage from previous, long gone, guests. Are folk likely to return to this sort of setting? *Answers on a postcard!

Read the small print

You don't get a cleaning service, you do it yourself. You are also responsible for removing rubbish from the unit. Failure to do this results in extra charges and you landing in the financial (Turtle) soup. They love extra charges!
