Pool Update 8/4/23

The HOA Pool Project manager updated us the morning of August 4th that "The need for re-inspection by the health department pushed everything back further than they realized, and we do not have a timeline at this point."

Please keep in mind First Flight Rentals nor the property owners can guarantee open dates and have no control over the project. HOA is at the mercy of the weather, contractors' schedules, county permits and health department approvals. 

Recent Community Upgrades include:

  • Watersports rentals - rent paddleboard / SUP, & kayaks through First Flight Rentals!
  • Cornhole set - located on ground level, a perfect sun break!
  • Skeeball for gameroom - fun for all ages!

Thank you so much for an Absolutely wonderful stay! This is our third year that we were blessed to be able to stay at your beautiful condo! Words can not repay the serenity you have given us.

FFR205 - Beach Therapy

We LOVED this rental!! Views amazing! Very comfortable - we slept so great, which was much needed. I would say the two things that could be better if possible: internet was super slow if it was working at all & more towels / person. The housekeeper was EXCELLENT! I'm a clean Nazi when it comes to the place I stay and they were top notch. Everything was very comfortable - beds, chairs, couch and exterior seating. The owners did an excellent job making sure they have a 5 star property. VERY nice! We were super happy!

FFR211 - Atlantic View Retreat

The rental was one of the cleanest we have been in! There should be more then 4 dining plates

Edward. from Voorhees, 06/24/2023

FFR315 - Seas The Day

The beach front balcony is just the best. We spend a lot of time there when not on the beach. We also appreciate GREATLY the ability to do a Sunday to Sunday rental as the traffic on Saturdays is so bad in the DC area. For us, Saturday morning on the beach when most guests have left is just wonderful. We practically have the beach to ourselves! Don't really have a least favorite comment. The fresh paint at FFR looks great btw.

FFR307 - Pelican's Perch

Thank you. Pelican�s Perch was a beautiful rental. It was, perhaps, the cleanest and most well maintained property we rented at FF Retreat. We can�t wait for the pool to be completed.

Cynthia. from Warren, 08/12/2023

We absolutely love this condo. It's so comfortable and beautiful for our trip each year.
