This property and the property manager did not disappoint and made our stay perfect. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a luxury rental in a desirable location.

It is a great condo with more than enough room for the family. Our kids (10 and 12 years old) love the bonus room, it has plenty of space for games, puzzles and just hanging out. The master bathroom is large, with dual sinks. The kitchen is well equipped, we prepared and enjoyed several meals during our stay. We love staying here and look forward to returning next time.
