So happy we stayed here

by Patricia L

We stayed one night in the Castaway room and it was great. Wish it was longer. Newly renovated. Very nice size room with kitchenette. Loved everything about this place. Beach was a 5 minute walk with easy access. I liked that it wasn't right in town yet close to everything. We prefer smaller family run properties when visiting the beach. You really don't need resort amenities in this area since there is so much to do. Thank you Nancy for being so responsive, friendly and accomodating!

Perfect Getaway Spot!

Perfect spot for a little getaway! Walk to beach for beautiful sunrises. Refreshing quiet pool area for cooling off. Spacious suite, great wi-fi, clean. Convenient location on south end of island. Great value. Would definitely stay there again! Thank you Sunshine Island Inn!
