The standalone 2- and 3-bedroom beach houses with private entrances are ideal for couples, families and small groups traveling together. The beach houses feature fully-equipped kitchens, living rooms and porches with water or oceanfront views that step right onto the beach. To accommodate all guest needs, the resort’s Butterfly Café offers indoor dining, an outdoor open-air patio or takeout food to be enjoyed in your private beach house.
