Perfect for me

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a relaxing vacation and this was Amazing. We loved having a gated condo with our own parking and front balcony area. Everything we wanted was close by. Our Condo could use a little work but nothing to bad to complain about. Thanks for a great home away from home vacation!

Great location directly by the beach!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, our baby (9-10 months) and I spent 51 nights at the condo and had an amazing family time here... It was great to be so close by the beach, but also to enjoy the pool and spa which are part of the complex. We also quite liked the BBQ possibilities available to us. The entire condo was very spacious and well equipped, in every regard.

Both Marjorie (owner) and Cindy (management) responded immediately to our queries helped solve whatever issue we encountered, mostly within the same day!

I personally spent almost everyday surfing, as the waves in front of our door are awesome.

While the building could use some renovations, e.g. internet cutting out occasionally, all in all this is a fantastic place to spend a couple of days (or weeks) relaxing and rejuvenating...

We would definitely recommend staying here - if we happen to be in the area again we certainly will!

Clean condo. Close to the beach. Liked the pool. Safe atmosphere for my family.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean condo. Nicely stocked kitchen. Supplied ample fans which was needed because it was warm inside during the night. Air conditioning would've been nice. Provided 3 boogie boards which was great but one of them is ready for the trash - getting a new one would be nice. Shower head is really short. Not so nice for anyone over 5' 5". Provided nice beach towels - very appreciated. One less thing to pack. Didn't provide any beach chairs so we bought a couple and "donated" them to the condo for future renters. Pool was great. Our kids loved it. Condo is within walking distance to good restaurants and shops which was nice in keeping our car parked. Overall a nice place to stay. We would come back and recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: It was a great pleasure to have you stay at our place. Thank you for your wonderful recommendation review. We do appreciate it very much. Thank you for donating the chairs. There should have been 2 sand chairs in the closet. I'll check with our management as to their whereabouts. Please come back at any time. You will always be welcomed.

Steps to the sand 103A

  • 5 of 5

My family stays at the condo each year and it is an amazing experience. It is walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the harbor not to mention the beach. It has a pool that is the perfect end to the day at the beach with a hot tub to top it off. Everything you could need to spend the perfect vacation with family. Parking was a huge convenience you parked right in front of the condo which made loading and unloading very easy. Will be back again next year for another amazing week.
