Great location but noisy neighbors
Overall the condo was in pretty good condition. It wasn't as clean as I would have preferred, dirty fans, oven knobs, big stains on carpet, and the water wouldn't go down the sinks in the bathroom like they should. The location and view is nice but the walls are really thin and the neighbor behind us was up blaring music all hours of the night.
Positives: Very friendly management that were quick to respond to any questions, great location, clean, newly remodeled. The family room is comfortable with a gas fireplace, and the room looks out on the beach. The TV is new with cable. The kitchen is nice with all new appliances. This spot is just north of Balboa Pier so close to pretty much anything you need. If you are looking for complete quiet, this spot may have a little too much activity for you. However there were ZERO issues with noise at night. It quiets down after 9PM or so since the beach closes at 10PM. There are volleyball courts and fire pits directly outside on the beach. It can be a little crowded during the busy season due to the nearby public parking. We love being near the action so it was perfect for our family. Includes a single garage spot that fit our Tahoe with bike rack. Washer and dryer in the garage are coin operated and worked fine. Would have no problem staying here again.
Very minor issues: Deck only seats two and could use high top chairs, a gas grill (does have a perfectly good charcoal grill), and a new door (sliding and screen). Would have been nice to have a water hose at the outside faucet to wash sand off the feet and boards. Particularly because there are no showers close by on the beach.
We stayed there for three weeks with our two teenager and loved it.
Great location, right on the beach, steps away to restaurants, bike rentals and shops.
Loved to watch the sun set from the small balcony. Great grill.
The two bedrooms were small, the beds too and not very comfortable.
Great Beach vacation
Very reasonably priced. The management very helpful and prompt. The unit was upstairs and my children and I loved the balcony and the sunsets we saw from it. The sand was perfect distance, one sidewalk away, for volleyball, badminton, and all the fun sand games. The water was perfect distance, not too far. Fun shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. We took a whale watching tour with the dock just blocks away. Way fun, saw three whales and scores of dolphins up close. It had all the amenities we needed and was reasonably clean. Loved the parking garage made it so easy to come and go as we pleased.
This unit is right on the beach, and was one of the least expensive options to stay right on the beach at the time that we booked. With that said, we were very happy with it and would definitely recommend it. It came with paddle ball, which was a nice addition, and had all of the amenities you'd need on vacation. Only issues - pull out couch is incredibly uncomfortable and hard to sleep on (keep this in mind if you have more than 4 staying). The bathrooms are also very outdated and neither shower was very good.
