Having been a long time Obcian, we knew just what to expect location wise from this condo. The view from the deck to the ocean were just wonderful, spent many days sunbathing on the deck. Being able to have the doors fully open hearing the ocean while cooking in the kitchen was incredibly pleasant. The condo is well equipped and comfortable. Location is wonderful. We were there for a week and did not drive once. Walked to restaurants, dog beach, cliffs, pier, just a great stay. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of towels available. To the guests concerned with the homeless people in the park, this is OB. That is basically their park, their home. They did not bother us once and were very polite and kept to themselves. While I understand this can be concerning for some, if you mind your business, they will mind theirs.
My only suggestions would be for more instructions to be left. We could not figure out how to fully open all doors as they are in the picture (and my brother is builder) so we had to call management. We also could not get the a/c working. Had to call management where they explained how to turn a/c on and that both units must be turned on at once to work. That is not intuitive, and while management was very helpful each time, if more instructions were left it would be more convenient for the guest and less calls for them. Also, agreeing with the guest that a vacuum should be provided. A week stay is a long time with no vacuum at a beach home. I would think that would assist in caring for the condo floors as well as I imagine many guests would use it on their stay. Also the security of the property is odd, there is a gate on the South side that needs a code, but was only locked during the day and would unlock at night. ?. There was no lock on the North gate and two open panels in the middle allowing anyone to enter the property. We woke up one morning with someone charging their phone on our patio due to the lack of security of the property. Again, it was no problem and they were very polite, it just doesn't really make sense to have codes that lock with so many other ways to enter the property. Lastly, it was a bit of a bummer with the exterior bedroom doors, as there was no way to sleep with the sound of the ocean at night without leaving the door completely open and unlocked with no screen.
Overall it was a wonderful and comfortable stay! We certainly plan to return again!
