Walk almost everywhere.
Although the Cabana condos were originally built in 1984, our unit has been updated. The kitchen is small and efficient. There is also a new washer/dryer in the unit. The swimming pool is well maintained.
The Cabana is within easy walking distance of the boardwalk area, eating and shopping.
All in all, the trip was a complete success - it should have been for longer to really unwind and relax. I would recommend this unit to anyone who enjoys being close to the ocean.
Great location for families!! Everything is within walking distance, lots of nice restaurants. Also the access to the beach is very good.
The condo is a little smaller than I imagined but it works. Sand dunes somewhat block the ocean view but it's still very pretty. It was nice to have the pool view from balcony so I was able to keep an eye on my teenagers without always needing to be at the pool with them.
Beach chairs and beach towels and regular towels are provided however trash bags, toilet paper all other typical things a "hotel" would have for your stay are not provided. We went to a local dollar store and bought those items. There is a washer/dryer and there was detergent and dryer sheets at our stay due to the fact the washer requires a certain type.
I will definitely be returning. I really loved the area, it seemed less tourist like and just a regular neighborhood that happened to be on the beach. Kure Beach is a short car ride and it is also a lovely area with great restaurants.
Can't wait to go back!!
The property was nice and clean. The only negative I can say is that I feel it should be updated. The furniture in the main area was a hodge podge of colors, kind of old, but nice. Definitely needs new couch and pillows and nicer curtains. The colors just didn't match and the tv was only a 19". Very small. Overall, very well stocked and clean.
PROS: Carol, the manager, was responsive to the issues we were having.
The location was exceptional, it was within walking distance to restaurants.
The views were outstanding.
There was plenty of room for the two of us.
The kitchen was well equipped.
CONS: The mattress in the master bedroom needs replacement. It is lumpy and
uncomfortable. Even though Carol purchased a pillow top, it only solved the
problem temporarily. The bed was so high, Carol also purchased a step to assist
The sofa is also run down and has no support. The recommended solution
was to pile comforters on it. This did not work.
If feasible, I would have left after the third night. However, I would love to stay here again IF the mattresses and soda were replaced with quality commercial grade furnishings. A nice recliner would be great.
The condo was exactly as advertised, great location within walking distance to everything and easy access to an uncrowded area of the beach. I didn't find parking to be an issue at all. The condo was well stocked with all the standard needs. While it is definitely dated and the appliances are older/worn, it was extremely clean and we didn't have issues using anything. Would definitely rent this unit again if we came back. Carol was very easy to deal with and extremely responsive.
My family really enjoyed our vacation stay last week. Everything we needed was there and it all added up to a stress free vacation. Everything is within walking distance. The suite was clean, well stocked with bath towels, beach towels, kitchen and laundry necessities, beds made, the fans were a real big plus, a book with local restaurant menus, good WiFi, a beautiful view and a sliding glass door that actually works. We had a very pleasant stay and we hope to return next year
Other Activities: State Park.
