Didn’t want to leave!

“My family of 5 loved this property! It was just as advertised. Pool was wonderful. Kitchen was well stocked. House was spacious where we all had plenty of space. 2 full baths were great. Bikes, beach chairs and beach cart were so helpful to have to use! We wanted to stay longer and will be back for sure in the future! Loved AMI!”
