 Beautiful, tidy unit that had everything we needed and more. 

Courtyard Retreat - Cross the road onto the beach

 The property is located behind the owners house which is across the the street from beautiful 90 mile beach. It was so nice to be lulled to sleep by the sound of ocean waves and be able to just walk across the road to go to the beach.

Courtyard Retreat - Cross the road onto the beach

 Ideal location for a busy couple who love a busy lifestyle and want to get away to relax. Everything was thought of including the small things like coffee and milk. The pictures perfectly represent the batch which was extremely neat and tidy.
