"A Pure Pleasure" on the beach! August 6-27 weeks reduced!
average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Beautifully decorated condo with great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at "A Pure Pleasure" and have to say that we were very pleased with the upgrades made since we were there last. The place was great last time we were there, but it's even better now.

The front bathroom was remodeled with a new vanity, mirror and tile floor. The carpeted floors throughout the condo living and bedroom areas have all been replaced with a beautiful wood laminate. The place is beautifully decorated and the entire condo is extremely comfortable.

The kitchen provided everything we needed for those days when we cooked at home, and the balcony patio has a great view of the ocean providing a great place to eat breakfast lunch or dinner.

The beach service was great as well with an umbrella and two beach chairs on a beautiful beach provided as part of the rental rate - a great perk. All we had to do is tell the folks on the beach which unit we were staying in - and we found out that isn't the case with all units here at Mainsail.

While we didn't use the pools or hot tub downstairs, it was easy to see that the grounds were in great shape and that Mainsail continues to upgrade. The same is true for the fitness room.

The tennis courts were also in great shape, looked as if they had been newly resurfaced.

Finally, it was great to have wifi and cable television in the unit while we were there, even if we didn't watch much tv. The wifi made it easy to stay connected.

All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great getaway, with comfortable accommodations in a location with great amenities and with easy access to a truly beautiful beach.

A pure pleasure to stay here.

Very Nice Accomodations - a few minor issues

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very nice overall. Very large and roomy for 5 people. Liked the full-size washer & dryer. Decorated nice. Loved the travel-size bath products that were provided - organic no less! It did have ample towels, trash bags, & toilet paper so that was appreciated (although we had brought all this stuff too).

It was a little more than 30 seconds to the beach, but the beach was great and the pool area was very nice.

There were a few small things that would have made it perfect. The DVD player was not plugged in (& it was hard to get to the plug behind a large entertainment center) so we couldn't watch movies we brought. Don't think the speakers were working either. The second bedroom (smaller one) had only one bedside lamp for light for the entire room. The other lamp was in the closet. I checked it out & it was broken. So trying to get ready in the morning or evening light was very hard. There were no kitchen towels or dishrags. We had to buy some at the Dollar Store.

Communication with the owner was fantastic! We noticed a broken item when we first got there so I sent a picture & email to Robyn just so she would know it was not us who broke it. Also we emailed her about the DVD not being plugged in. She was very responsive and kind.

Thanks for giving our family a nice place for a great vacation.

Amazing spring break trip

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing and very relaxing. The condo looks even better in person than it does in pictures. The owner, Robin, provided us with many unexpected things such as beach chairs and books to read. We really appreciated that. The kitchen was filled with every amenity you can think of. The only thing I can think of that can improve is the hot water situation. There were 8 of us so sometimes we would run out of hot water for showers and 2 or 4 people would have to shower with cold water. However, given some time the hot water always came back on. Overall, it was a very reasonable price for such a nice place. We had a great time and I will be recommending this place for future vacations for friends and families. Thanks so much to Robin for making our spring break happen. We had a blast!

One of our favorites so far!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to stay at it again the next summer, but it was already booked! We had 3 adults and 4 kids and we were perfectly comfortable. Absolutely LOVE the direct access to the beach and how it over looks the pool. I would have liked a little better view of the beach, but it was so close and convenient to walk to the beach it didn't matter! Everything we needed was there. It was beautiful and peaceful. One of our favorite vacations so far!
