This home was very clean and roomy. The beds were very comfortable. Air conditioning worked great. I was pleasantly surprised to find a day bed in the loft area that was not mentioned in the description. It kept my grandson from having to sleep on an air mattress. The beach is beautiful and there is plenty of great shopping nearby. The kids enjoyed the pools in the evening. All around great place.
Great layout very spacious. Would have liked to have access to more fishing rods however nice to have all the beach gear and towels.
There were no cleaning supplies paper products which would have been nice I had to go buy these items which I couldn't take back with us so I left them for the next tenant.
Overall great place! It's beautiful here. My family was thrilled.
This is our 2nd time staying at this awesome condo. This is a very clean home and has what you need for your stay. It is very convenient to the beach and the pools are wonderful..I would highly recommend this Condo for anyone. We had a 4 year old and teen ager and everyone was very happy with our stay. This will be our place to stay if it's available everytime we go.
We were truly impressed with the spaciousness of this condo. It was very clean, and in a very quiet area. I would definitely recommend this condo, the owner was very helpful and nice too. There is a short walk to the beach and a shorter walk to bay, which is breathtaking. Lots to do around the area as well. Great location which made for a great vacation, thank you! Check out the free ride service, well worth the tips given.
I stayed in this condo with my sister and our three grown twenty-something sons. It was very nice and exactly what we needed. It was clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The condo was more roomy than I expected. The price was very competitive for similar accommodations. I would stay there again, and recommend the place very highly. Also the owner was very responsive and the property managers were helpful.
Thanks to you all!
We had a great week at your house! The furnishings were beautiful and also very comfortable. The master bed was more comfortable than my own bed at home! The townhouse was furnished and decorated exactly the way I would have done it myself if it were my own beach house, which is why i describe it as "home away from home." The main floor bathroom was a little outdated but I was there for the beach, not the bathroom! We really enjoyed having lots of space to spread out as we were there with my mom, two preschool age daughters, and a baby.
As for the beach, when it is really hot, the walk across the main road to the beach with young kids is too much. So, we ended up driving to the public beach most days. I actually really enjoyed that because they have a great snack bar, bathrooms relatively close, and lifeguards. When going to the beach with little ones, all of those things are a plus. Thanks for sharing your beach toys and towels too. That was really nice! It was also so helpful to have the cart to carry stuff down to the beach!
The pools were both really nice too.
The only thing i had any real issue with, and the reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5, was the garage. I'm not sure how long it had been since previous guests were there, but the (empty) trash cans smelled extraordinarily bad and there were 100's of dead flies on the garage floor. We left the garage door open to air it out. My husband sprayed cleaner in the cans and the stench still wouldn't go away. You had to hold your nose getting things in and out of the garage. We didn't park in it or put our stuff in it, because we didn't want to have to smell that. So, if there's a way to make sure someone checks on the trash situation every week, i think that would help. Or maybe it just gets so hot in there that nothing helps. I don't know. I'd talk to your neighbors and see if they have the same issue.
Also, just so other travelers are clear, the main floor is not on the ground floor. The ground floor belongs to another unit. It ended up being no big deal but there was some miscommunication about the "first floor", i thought you meant ground floor and just wanted to make clear for others who might not understand. I would not have cared at all except that we were traveling with my mom who doesn't do stairs much...
Thanks again for a great week.
