Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our unit was very nice. Had two full bathrooms and a spacious kitchen. Beach equipment available. Nice pool area. Only issue was that four other units were rented to a group of people that hung around the pool drinking during the day for two days. They weren’t that annoying but kept us from enjoying the pool area.

Overall we were pleased, but maintenance was a bit spotty. The bathroom in our cabin was not in great condition. The kitchen could have been better equipped.

Not as nice as last year
This is our second visit staying at the Sunshine Island Inn. Last year it was great, but this year was a disappointment. There is no housekeeping available which we knew, but we used to have access to clean linens and replacement soap and toilet paper, but this year we had to track down a staff member (who was typically only on property for a few hours a day), so they could give us clean towels or a new bar of soap. This proved to be very inconvenient bc we had to plan our day around changing our linens. Another issue is that they allow smoking around the pool, and each room has a sliding door that opens to the pool deck, so when someone was smoking out there, we couldn’t have our door open. Overall, this place is clean and well located on the island.
