Member Review:

"This place is the best. We had a 3 bedroom and 3 1/2 bath. Both downstair suites had a king size bed. We also had a washer and dryer which really was grand with the grand kids and the beach nearby. There are so many great restaurants there also, but we did eat in some and grilled which was nice. Our unit overlooked the lagoon, with a screened porch which we loved each morning with our coffee and breakfast. We loved Egret Point and would go again if we got the chance."
