What a vacations
My Wife and at the time 4YO daugther and 8YO son and I stayed here for 10 nights in Sept of 2008.
Even though there had been heavy hurricanes on the Texas side of the gulf the water was really nice.
In fact, the storms had stirred things up where many seashells normally found at greater depths were brought up close to the shore line. We found our first ever conch shell and while it wasn't perfect, it was still a large conch. In addition we found numerous sand dollars, starfish and pieces of broken coral.
The unit itself was well furnished and appointed. It was practical for us with kids too. While the furnishing were nice enough for a couple on their honeymoon, it was nice to know that it was unlikely that our kids could damage the tile or berber carpet doing "normal" kid stuff.
Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and while their are plenty of nice restaurants within only a few minutes drive, we opted to stock the fridge and do breakfast and lunch at the condo most days which gave us a lot of extra time on the beach and certainly made the trip more affordable.
I guess I should mention that this place is truly on the beach. When you look down from the balcony it's maybe 5 feet to the sand and 100 to 150 yards to the water. The cool nighttime breezes and "swoosh" of the waves made it hard to want to go back to the master bedroom and catnaps were easy to fall in to.
Don't forget the pool if you want to get in to the water but stay out of the sun. It's there, it's clean and the pool area is quiet and comfortable with tables and umbrellas.
In closing, we received a nice thank you card, and even an x-mas card from the property owner over the next few months.
If you want a clean, comfortable well appointed setting, that's right on the beach at a very competitive rate. This is THE place.
