"The reservation process was so easy, and very professional. The location of the condo was just great. We only had to use our car once, to get groceries when we first got there. The rest of the time, we just walked into town to the restaurants and stores, and walked the 1 block to the beach (which made it easy to come back to the condo if we needed anything). We also brought our bikes, so we rode through town, through the state beach camping area to the seal rookery, the tar pit park, and to the bluffs preserve. We could have rode all the way to Rincon Beach, but it was such a hot and humid day, we turned around and went to the beach near the condo for the rest of the day instead. What a great beach! As for hot and humid, it was unseasonably hot (88 degrees, 85% humidity) the first day, and the condo has no AC. There were two fans. The white standing fan did nothing, but the little black fan was super powerful and was the best of the two (suggestion: get a new standing fan like the little black fan?). The ceiling fan over the bed and opening all the windows helped. The next couple of days cooled down so it wasn't bad after that. The condo can use some updating (couches). And, being a "foodie" that likes to cook, the kitchen was serviceable, but basic. But who cares! Make reservations for dinner instead! (Of note: many of the restaurants do not have AC, being a beach town!) Nonetheless, the rest of the condo was perfect, we adapted and we enjoyed our stay. That is why, even with those couple of minor glitches, Steps from the Sand gets our 5 stars!"
