We had a wonderful, relaxed time!  The lush green landscape and breeze from the water made outdoor living the best!!  We loved the private patio.  It was our own little paradise.  We spent a great deal of time there and enjoyed most meals outside.  This was the most relaxing four days we’ve had in a long time.  We will be recommending Pirate’s Pointe to friends and we will be back again.  Don & Pattie Raymond 4/25/14

We loved it!  There aren’t many places we’ve gone where we felt completely relaxed.  From the lush tropical setting to the beautiful pool and dock/fishing area.  The cottages are decorated beautifully and every question asked was answered in a “no worries” tone.  Thanks Jonathan.  We especially loved the way Jonathan interacted with our young boys and make them feel at home and welcomed.

Even the kids said it was awesome!  The studios are perfect for a small group or family.  We spent a lot of time poolside which was well maintained.  The dock offers plenty of seating and a table for cleaning your fish.  The staff was friendly and gave suggestions of local restaurants that you wouldn’t want to miss.  Will definitely suggest to others and would come back ourselves.
