The property manager was adequately helpful.
The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.
I was very happy with the location.
I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
The Sand Dollar was OK given the location ... certainly not our best experience. Some windows were broken and some did not even open. The BBQ grill lid was broken which made using it very difficult ... besides being filthy and required cleaning before using. Garbage disposal was clogged and we had to call for service the first time we tried to use it. Parking was a nightmare since the garages are locked and unavailable .. so good luck if you have more than 2 cars. It's called a private beach but we had to put up with fishing poles on our beach and our grandchildren had to walk to another house to use their beach and avoid the fishing lines. Workers (lots of construction) would stand on the beach access walks to look at girls and women in swimsuits and I had to chase them off once. At night, a truck with a trailer came in and a family unloaded their trash and stuff in the construction dumpers ... how did they get the access number??

The house was beautiful and very clean. The beds were super comfortable. There are three bedrooms upstairs- I king master overlooking ocean, and 2 double queen rooms with their own bathrooms. On the 2nd floor there is a second king master bedroom. There are also a couple pullout couch beds, which were helpful with kids. The house is very convenient with access to beach just one house away, walking distance to stores and restaurants, and rights by heated pool. Only complaint, the garages are not accessible so there is ONLY room for 2 cars to park and no where else in the community to park. Would stay here again anytime!
This was the perfect spot for our vacation - beautiful beach and fabulous sunsets ☀️- the house was in perfect condition - very clean and spacious for our family of 8 adults and 5 young children ! Plenty of room for us to stretch out when we wanted a little space, and great when we all wanted to gather for meals, etc. Each bedroom had its own bath, and each had something unique about it - and the beds - SO COMFY !!! We all said that same thing the first AM Older kids loved the media room - and, also, the heated pool was perfect ! The rental agency was amazing ( especially Judy, who tracked down some items we left behind and arranged to have them sent to us !!! Thanks again - we all agreed we were glad we chose Sand Dollar
Property was beautifully decorated and the views were amazing, making it a perfect getaway spot. So many fun shops, biking trails, and restaurants. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Oh my! What a great place to stay. The decor, amenities, everything we needed was available, organized, and wonderful. Two balconies overlook a beautiful beach. We woke up early to be greeted by the most wonderful sunrises and Dolphins! The location is close to stores, restaurants, bike path and a private beach. 10 stars on a 5-star scale!
This property was amazing. It was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The property management staff was very helpful and the home was very clean. The views were amazing and the location was very convenient. I definitely would recommend this vacation rental and we plan to return.
