Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fabulous time in the condo. It truly is the most beautiful unit we have stayed in here at Sea Vista. Everything one needs was provided and then some! It was absolutely immaculate which we really appreciated. The weather on SPI this month was fantastic and staying in this condo puts you right on the beach for daily walks and fun in the sand. Becky was very helpful and available. Definitely a great place to spend vacation time!

Great decor, and beautiful ocean views.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is tastefully furnished. The beds, especially in the master bedroom, are very comfortable. And there was a variety of kitchen equipment, and beach supplies. It is the last building before the public beach and so the view is great. The only problem we had is that several of the drawers and closets were locked and therefore the storage and closet space was limited.

Well-equipped, very clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Sea Vista once or twice a year for 20 years. So we have stayed at various condos on the property. This condo was by far the best-equipped (Keurigs in the two smaller bedrooms) of all. It is comfortable and very clean. It met all of my criteria of ceilings fans in the bedrooms and living area, tile floor throughout, and well-maintained patio furniture.

Great Experience on SPI

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Mark and Becky's condo. It was very clean and everything was organized. We were steps away from the beach. We can't wait to be back.

Spacious and Perfectly Located

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we could have imagined and more. It had a beautiful beach balcony, well lit, spacious bedrooms, clean and updated kitchen and bathroom, close location to the beach, nice pool, and well maintained common area with nice maintenance staff. I also love the fact that it is a gated entrance, well hidden from the main road so that you can leave your "beach stuff" that you don't need in your truck bed without worrying about it.

The condo also was well furnished with beach chairs, boogie boards, toys for kids, and sturdy beach umbrella. The A/C blew cold and all the appliances worked well. Between the spacious master king size bed, guest room queen, third bedroom twin beds, and the unadvertised bonus sleeper sofa in the living room, this place had plenty of sleeping space.

The only small con was the fact that the master bedroom adjoins the living room and is separated by a sliding lourved closet doors, which we had to battle all weekend to keep on its track. And it is quite thin so if you get somebody who wakes up early and you are in the master trying to sleep in, it is not possible.

But luckily for us, we all woke up at the same time, so it really was not a big deal. It can also be solved by bringing a pair of ear plugs. Believe me when I say that all the nice qualities of the condo far outweigh the few drawbacks.

And lastly, the internet worked nicely for me, but my family with Iphones said they had trouble connecting. Might be a compatibility issue.
