"Beautiful second floor apt. style lodging. It was well-stocked, comfortable and very clean. It was fabulous having a washer and dryer along with a full kitchen. The beds were very comfy and the 360° views were spectacular. Location was an easy walk to downtown."

"My husband stayed in Grande Bay Surfside unit on early June, 2015. Due to airline change we arrived earlier than expected. The property manager met us- and was able to get us into the condo early. It is beautiful. The decor is tastefully updated- supplies were provided- sunscreen, bug spray, plenty of towels, water toys, cooler etc. Spotlessly clean. We rented a jeep and used the space they have in the garage. Total heaven!!!!"

"This review is long overdue…
We stayed here in September 2014 and without a doubt this deserves each one of its five stars. We were travelling with our one year-old so we had a lot of time to admire the unit, which was immaculate and has a very open feel. The living room is quite large and very comfortable, the kitchen has been nicely renovated, the bedroom is a good size (easily fit a crib, suitcases and there is loads of storage space). Then there is the large lanai, which expands from living room to bedroom and needless to say was spectacular. We spent hours on the lanai eating, reading, and admiring the surrounding views of mountains, courtyard, and the beach/ocean. Sleeping with the doors open was great as you can clearly hear the waves crashing on the beach, but when needed the AC was also brilliant. It was very easy to communicate with the owner and arrange the booking.
As for the Whaler itself, it is a nice setups. First of all you don’t have to “meet up” with an owner or management company to get inside the unit, once you arrive everything is done through the front desk (room keys, parking, towels, pool access, etc.). The pool was nice (though deep with a toddler) and we enjoyed feeding the coy fish every morning at 8:15 (food provided by the Whaler). Location is excellent, direct beach access, quick stroll to black rock for snorkeling or to Whalers Village for shopping – a good walking location in general.
Finally… everyone we met at the Whaler was really friendly.
I could write a lot more about both the unit and the Whaler, but I think that sums it up. Can’t wait to return! Thanks again for renting this excellent unit."
