This was my first VRBO experience. Overall, there is no comparison between this unit and a similarly (or more expensive) hotel. This property is better located, bigger, and has a better view. I won't spend too much time selling the place, as I think it is well described here. Although the view is obstructed from some taller buildings (as pictured), it is a "front view"; that is to say, you can see it from the entire unit, and not just the lanai. At least in June, the sun hits the lanai most of the day, so it was a little to warm to enjoy. Everything felt very clean when we checked in, though the unit/furniture are a little on the quiet side. My only real complaint: there is a whole lot of furniture in the place-- between the table for 4, the two bar stools, and a chair, there was pretty much no floor space when the couch bed is out. We were okay with our two small kids, but 4 adults might find the place a little cramped.
