Reviewer Comments: It rained most of the week but we still got in some good beach time. Unit 2031 from STAR was excellent. Lots of room and everything you would need for a weeks vacation.

I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Loved the openness and updates of kitchen and living room area. Plenty of seating for 6 adults. Our only complaint is that the mattresses need to be replaced. When someone sleeps on the sofa because the bed is so uncomfortable that doesn't make for a great night. Missed not having a better ocean view. We've stayed at Shoreline many times and will be back just not this unit.

Pool and Jetties were really close which made this a good value for us. Wish they would've had beach set ups available for rent at the Jetties since we flew, but we knew that wasn't included so no fault of owners. Emerald Grande had set ups but they weren't for rent (thanks a lot we'll be baking the sun over here). Will probably stay here again when we come back.
