Spring Break for this Texas educator was much needed. I reviewed the condo online before booking and loved the pictures and the proximity to the beach, but the photos really do not do the place justice. Tired after fighting the traffic down from Houston to New Orleans and from New Orleans to Silver Beach, I was just ready to climb in bed upon arrival, however, I opened the door was re-energized! The artwork, the cherry yellow and accents of red were so welcoming. Stepping out onto the patio and seeing the beach literally steps away was amazing! Being on the ground floor meant I didn't have to make multiple trips up and down the elevators. It is a corner unit and so private even though the path to the beach is right beside it, it is so quiet...so comfortable and so well appointed. The kitchen is well equipped and I made my first full meal tonight with everything so easy to find. Love the huge mugs for coffee in the mornings! LOVE having wi-fi available! The DVD works like a charm as it was stormy and a movie day all day Sunday. Love listening the rain and the waves. This is a great home-away-from-home. Although I'm just beginning my week here, I'm already making plans for when I can return. It is just me...my friends could not come due to work and the storms. But, I've really enjoyed myself the past few days. Publix is the best grocery store and I have missed it...no Publix in Houston. Everything one would need is so convenient. A WalMart, Liquor Store, Brunos, Winn Dixie, Publix, CVS, Walgreens, etc. are all within walking distance. Great location! The place was spotless when I arrived, which is much appreciated. I am so comfortable here. This is perfect for single females, families with children, girls weeks, guys week, older adults or anyone with a disability. The owner has been simply wonderful with all the information provided and in responding to my emails. Couldn't ask for a better experience...unless, of course, a cook was thrown into the mix. Ha!
