The unit was exactly as pictured and described. Booking was easy, and I was grateful to be able to pay via credit card for added security. The arrival and checkin process was very simple and fast, which got us in our unit and on the beach quickly!! We had a minor issue that Cindy was very responsive to and she even proactively credited our account, which was so nice!
The unit was very clean and orderly when we arrived. We didn't see a single bug the entire time. All appliances worked just fine.
Our stay was Thanksgiving week and there was still plenty to do. All the touristy stuff was still open and running except for Thanksgiving Day itself, when we went to Busch Gardens and had very small lines!!
The trolley was really fun and there is a stop right in the parking lot of the condo!
This is a silly thing, but my whole family was amazed at the excellent water pressure in the unit!! Sometimes it's the little things, folks!
The hot tub was hot, the pool was warm. The ocean water was too cold for a full swim, but it was tolerable to go in below the hips for the kids. There were NO mosquitos anywhere!
We did a lot of fishing across the street on a little pier on the intracoastal waterway. I caught a lizard fish.. EWW! We rented rods and got bait from a small shop maybe about a mile south of the condo. It's best to fish when the tide is in we discovered. We didn't get to fish on the pier on the Gulf side of the condo because I think we kept trying when the tide was out and it was too shallow.
And did I mention the toy closet??! WOW - all kinds of beach stuff in there! We used quite a bit of it, and left our bait bucket for future guests.
There is new tile throughout the unit which is beautiful!
The only downer was the elevator - it's pretty slow. But, the kids turned it into a race and ran the 5 flights of stairs faster than we could get up or down with the elevator, LOL. It became a running joke and the elevator will have it's own page in the scrapbook I'm putting together for memories!
We are already checking our schedules to see when we can get back down there!! Oh, and the price was AWESOME!!
Can't say enough good things!
