Perfect get-away for our family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay! The condo was the perfect size for our family (2 adults, twins age 5 and a 9 year old). It was clean and provided all the amenities we needed. We had a pool view and ocean view on the balcony. It was a quick walk to a clean beach that offered plenty of space to build sand castles and explore. This was our boys first trip to the beach and they had a ball!

The owner was quick to respond to all my inquiries prior to the trip which was greatly appreciated.

Awesome place for a family trip!

The owner is very helpful. The cleaning service he uses is not very good. The couches in living room are awful to sit on. There is No washer and dryer in the house. Other wise a good place to stay.

Great family trip!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Very conveniently located to the beach! Property was nice and staff was friendly. The only constructive comments I'd like to make are regarding the beds. The beds in the 2nd bedroom could use some upgrading. They were not comfortable at all. Also it's advertised to sleep 8. I'm assuming it means 2 could sleep on the futon. We had two young boys and it was not big enough for the 2 of them. We made it work though.

The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies and dishes. We had everything we needed.

We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family and we plan on returning in the future.

Thanks again!
