Perfect unit for GREAT sunrise views! well supplied - just bring laundry detergent
& a can opener. Very nice sheets. Owner sent deposit back fast! Made everything easy. Location is quiet and peaceful - Unit is on same floor as exercise equip. Grande Shores - let you have all the pool towels you need & supply shampoo, plastic cups, etc... if you forgot. Very easy check-in process. Discount tickets are offered, however, we enjoyed eating out, shopping, and BAREFOOT LANDING (10 minute drive North): it is the best for unusual stores & tours, photo ops, feeding carp, gators & turtle sightings, even tigers & monkeys, homemade ice cream, merry-go-round, & Jonny Rockets for a banana milkshake & candy stores - get a bear claw & homemade praline at the Market Sweets.... they are as big as your fist! Eat Breakfast Buffet at Grande Shores at least once. Smoothies & grill to order food for sale by the pool between 11-2pm. There are plenty of vending & ice machines & Ice cream truck comes by each day. Indoor pool has a huge hot tub & rain down pool for toddlers. I like that it has a restroom. Also, 7th floor pool (direct sunlight prior to 2pm) has 4 small hot tubs with a wonderful view of ocean. Finally, ocean front pool goes to 8 feet - and a larger lazy river (both heated). The front lawn has comfortable chairs, nice ocean view, and the smell of flowers. Walked to the pier (North) go at low tide - took me about 2 hours & on way back waded through water (great walk though). Found lots of unusual shells - must be out there at 6:45am or earlier. Exercise trail along roadside sidewalk that I found fun. Most anywhere you go to along boardwalk you will pay to park & even at the condo if you don't park in the parking deck. The parking deck is small & when we rent again I will drive a car that is not a full size SUV - it was a challenge squeezing in and out. But, if you don't come home too late you will park right near the door to your room. Nice to walk through neighborhoods on evening strolls - plenty to do! Want to go back!!! Wish I were there now....
