Just Right... and then some

History and tradition aside, I can't stand shabby at the shore - it doesn't feel like a vacation if the window treatments, carpeting and tile is sketchy. Our family and friends hope to return next year to this gem on the beach - it was very luxurious, convenient and functional.
This 3BR, 2BA condo on the beach offered the location and amenities our family and friends needed for our vacation. The furniture, fixtures, tvs, A/C, windows, and appliances are all in excellent working condition. The property is very clean which is important to us. Having the beach and pool options, so close together was fantastic. The location for access to Sunset Lake marina, viewing the fireworks and proxmity to the beach were very helpful to us.
During the week we had: another family stay for part of the visit, drop in visitors and my son had a friend visit. We peaked at 11 people for dinner one night and 8 sleepers (adults and teenagers). It was not crowded at all. Several of the views from the unit are spectacular: the ocean from the deck, the marina from master BR and BA (yes I appreciate a good view from there!).
We are very familiar with dining options on the island but prefer to cook and eat family style dinners and on the go breakfast and lunches. The kitchen had the right space, excellent appliances and was well maintained (CLEAN) so cooking was convenient and fun. The common area grills were also well maintained and easily accessible. In addition to the list provided, bring some big plastic bowls (chips, salad and pasta), a metal spatula, baking sheet and wine glasses unless they are supplied by the owner next year.
This is not a resort so pool hours are somewhat curtailed so there is no outdoor cocktails late at night, but if that's your thing, just go next door and make friends.
We did encounter minor inconveniences during our stay, but our property manager was always available to assist and support as needed.
