We stayed in this penthouse with another family as a new Thanksgiving tradition. The unit was nice, though it's overdue for some proper makeover and refreshing, though that's just little details that shouldn't sway you. The views were great, the unit was comfortable overall, and we had a very pleasant time hanging out and just disconnecting from the world and enjoying the sounds and views of the ocean.
* easy to find
* centrally located, so most destinations are close by
* great view
* regardless of what the book says, the wifi is horrible (11/2016) with at best a "fair" to "weak" signal. as someone that deals with networking, i suspect that they don't have enough access points, and since it's an open, non-secured network, there's a lot of freeloaders on it.
* the hot water heater isn't stout enough to handle 8 people, so you'll need to be mindful about your showers
* the main living/lounging area can get really hot from 9-11am with direct sunlight, but it's not intolerable, especially if you end up going out during this time.
