  • Celebration of 50 years of marriage

    "Spent a week with our kids and grandkids. The grandkids loved playing in the sand and shallow surf. Weather was mostly great, and we missed no days at the beach. We are all birders, and we surely enjoyed the many bird-watching areas nearby. The condo was comfortable, and it was a complete, working kitchen. The pool was too cold to be in…but the kids didn't mind because they had so much fun at the beach. It was fun to be wakened by laughing gulls every morning! It's a short drive to restaurants, groceries, and sightseeing spots."

  • Great Location, Great View

    "We so enjoyed staying at this property. The view from the balcony is breathtaking, and the amenities were great (pool, volleyball court, and newer BBQ grills). However, this property does lack the modern feel that I was expecting, in the electronic age there are very limited plug-ins, I use a breathing machine and in the master bedroom the plug-ins are on the light switch so when my wife would get up at night, force of habit caused her to flip the switch, which in return turned off my O2 machine, and phones and tablets didn't end up charging because again the switch would get turned off. Also Wi-Fi doesn't work very well throughout the condo (just a warning). If you are someone who cooks; Oven doesn't work very well, you will have to add about 10 minutes to cook times, and 15 minutes to preheat to 375 degrees. Bathroom exhaust fan is on the main switch so when someone gets up at night they cannot use just the light they have to run the fan as well so very noisy on opposite wall, and the kids would of liked to of taken a bath, but there aren't any drain plugs so it is showers only. Coin operated laundry is pricy cost $1.75 to wash and $1.50 to dry each load. BUT I NEED TO STRESS we LOVED it and the GOOD TOTALLY out weighed these few LITTLE things, just want Renters to be aware. The good being very clean property, short walk to the beach, price is great, shower station by the walkway to clean the sand off before going inside. Lots of parking, and staff is great and so friendly, plenty of dishes, utensils, towels, blankets, books. All around great property and Karen is so quick to respond. Hope we can stay again next time."

  • GREAT STAY

    "My mom and daughter in law and six month old and I had a wonderful stay. The condo was warm and inviting and comfortable. We had everything we needed, including coffee filters and salt and pepper. The view from the balcony of the pool and ocean was beautiful. Such a joy to have coffee on the patio while watching the waves. I would gladly stay there again."
