What a perfect location! The photos are completely accurate. Management and cleaning crew were wonderful and extremely accommodating. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the small parking lot. I think each unit should have a designated space and then all others should be for additional guests.
We can't wait to visit again!!
The only condo with its own private entrance to the pool area, and in-unit washer & dryer, this condo was great! it has high end finishes, had more room than the 2 of us needed, the furniture seemed new and the place was spotless. Having two full bathrooms was a luxury when we were getting ready to go somewhere. Being oceanfront and the furnished beach chairs and umbrellas ensured that we enjoyed our vacation to the max. We met 3 staff members during our stay, and each was so friendly and helpful - thank you Laura, Lorie & Martha! The only downside was that it was difficult to leave when our time was up!
