"The property was so well stocked, unlike any we have rented before. Location was great. Bikes were a nice touch, loved the chairs and umbrellas. One thing that would have been handy is a beach cart for all your items. Appliances were top notch and bedding, kids loved the pool, we did use the bocce court, loved the area. The staff is extremely professional and sweet."

"This was a very nice property. The entire group loved it. It is very hard to please all 12 people and this property did just that. We had a wonderful time at Thyme after Thyme and loved the staff at Sunburst. The weather was the only thing that could have been better but it was still nicer than Duluth, MN. Thank you!"
