Wife and I just stayed two nights at A Water's Edge. Very good B&B. Nice rooms and very nice hosts in Tim and Beth. Great views from the front porch. We would definitely stay there again. They have bikes and golf carts available.

This b&b is wonderful! Totally worth the money. We arrived to homemade sangrias. Breakfast was delicious. There were so many options and the owners take into account your food preferences.

Tim and Elizabeth, Thank you so much for our recent stay! We love the house and the rooms including everything there is to offer. Your home is very relaxing.

Our stay at Water's Edge was just the perfect get-away for our anniversary. The B and B is beautiful, and the hosts friendly and helpful. The breakfast was beyond expectations and the snacks/treats a nice touch. Our room had an amazing view. Sitting on the front porch or the decks was a wonderful way to relax in a beautiful setting....
