Great condo and great location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this wonderful location! This condo was the perfect size for our family and what made it even better was the quick walk to the beach!. It is also a 5 minute walk from the ice cream store and the small down town area with a great selection of family friendly restaurants!

The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for our 7 day stay!

We will definitely be back to visit again soon!

The condo was very nice and located in a convenient but quiet location. This was our first time visiting AMI and we would definitely stay here again in the future.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was in a perfect place, very close to the beautiful beach. It was very clean and much larger than we thought it would be. We had 4 teenage boys with us and we fit just fine. The only frustrating thing (which was the complex, not the condo) was that the complex didn't have a recycling area. The only place available was a local beach/park that had small recycling containers, which were overwhelmed with our items. We'd definitely stay again!

Great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

The unit had everything we needed and was clean and quiet. It is within walking distance of many restaurants and the beach is across the street. The only negative was lugging the luggage up three flights of stairs.

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

Been staying in these condos for about 6 years and they are Wonderful. Always clean and neat. Price is very reasonable. You are across the street from the beach so that is always a plus. The tenant is always very pleasant to deal with and is always available if I ever need them. A++ Do yourself a favor and make reservations for this condo, u will NOT be disappointed!
