Wow Wow Wow! - Newly furnished & outfitted unit and it shows! All new everything! Looks like a Pottery Barn catalog. The unit is beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, and so so comfortable! Better than the pictures - they don't show all the 'little' things the owners have thought of like night lights in all the rooms, coffee waiting for you when you arrive, spices in the pantry, cleaning supplies, paper goods, shampoo & conditioner included and Every kitchen gadget imaginable (even a fancy waffle iron that my teen grandson loved!).
Downstairs king bedroom and bath for those of us that no longer like stairs!
Upstairs master w/ensuite for the 'parents'
Cutest bedroom for the grandkids. One bunkbed plus 2 'open' twins for the taller kids
All bedrooms had flatscreen TVs so no fighting over the remote!
Owners are SUPER responsive - if we had a question they replied to our texts in minutes
The kitchen is a chef's playground with Calphalon pans, Henckels knives, Mikasa dishes - you get the feeling you're at a friend's beach house, not 'some rental' where the owners did the bare minimum. Even the linens and towels (including plenty of beach towels) are top quality and lovely.
The lagoon pool in the complex and hot tub are both gorgeous and have shaded palapas and BBQ areas if you want to spend the afternoon/evening watching the kids swim and eating there. That said, we loved having our very own Weber BBQ on the unit's lanai and spent most evenings grilling outside and eating at the large table set. There's an additional lanai (patio for us mainlanders) upstairs off the master bedroom with a comfy two person chaise - great for reading or napping.
The golf cart is the star of the show. I'm 77 and have a bad knee and having the little "GEM" car made is so easy for me to get anywhere I wanted to go. The beach is an easy & flat half mile walk from the unit but sometimes (as we age ;-) even a tiny half mile seems too far so I'd just hop in the golf cart and go! Each lagoon has special 'golf cart only' parking. We felt so sorry for the people in 'regular' cars who would wait for hours for one of the precious parking spots while we'd just zip around the line and swing into our cute little golf cart spot. We used it EVERY day to go to the beaches, ABC store and great restaurants like Monkeypod (go for happy hour!).
We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked our return already for 2015!
