Affordable with a great location.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I rented a one month February stay. We bike almost everywhere on the island. Being this close to the Coligny shopping, restaraunts and park was what we were looking for.

Sea Side 1 is an older (1979) beach front building with gated access. The exterior was being worked on while we were there. It would have been nice to know, that the full month we were there, we would have a diesel unit with the safety beeper, going on and off almost every day just outside. They were finishing the day we left. The siding replacement and paint do give the building a fresh look.

This unit faces the east which is nice in the winter to get some sunshine, once the sun clears the neighboring building, about 45 minutes after sunrise. There's quite a bit of green vegitation incorporated in the parking lot outside the patio view. This isn't an ocean facing unit, but you can see it through the other patios and trees. Only bar style stools and table and a high chair for the patio furniture, made lounging there uncomfortable, so we didn't use the patio as much as we would have like to.

The unit was clean with a lot of storage area for just the two of us. A nice mirrored north wall makes the living area seem bigger. A small TV was in the upper corner of the room and not easy to see unless we sat on stools in the middle of the room. The interior furniture was okay and the bed was comfortable. The dining table wall area was dark but nice kitchen lighting to work in. Limited cupboard storage but had most everything needed for eating-in over the month stay. The sink was very small but Pat said that is being replaced. We didn't use the dishwasher as we hand wash after each use, so getting a new sink and counter will make that better.

This unit is just above the parking garage bay and no neighbor to the north as that room is for electrical/maintenance. The neighbor to the south smokes on his balcony, and that wafts into the unit if the patio door is open, but other than his video game rumbling he was quite. Noise from above is limited mostly to very squeeky floors, though their bedroom noise was like a cheap hotel at times. Building hallway traffic just outside the bedroom wasn't bad this time of year, but I can imagine that at peak times the late coming and going could be annoying.

My wife used the Spinnaker Players Club fitness center every other day, so that was a nice perk that came with the rental.

We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are sorry about any noise on the other side of the building. The work we thought was being completed prior on other side of building not on our side of the building. We are sorry but we can't control any renters in other units but would hope they are also courteous to all renters enjoying their stay. We had a request for the higher table and chairs and everyone seems to like them. I have used them to work on my computer but I guess not everyone would like them. We are sorry you were not able to enjoy the balcony. We spoke to the person upstairs and they fixed the squeaks. Yeah!!! He was very nice. We have a 32" TV on top of the Bookcase 40" would not fit. Most feel it is very comfortable watching from the swivel chair and the sofa. All of the walls in the condo are wallpapered with the same very light colored paper and a picture of a beach/ocean view hangs on the wall above the table. We are very happy you enjoyed the Spinnaker Players Club Fitness Center. It is a great place to relax and enjoy on days you can't go to the beach or you just want to go and exercise or join in on one of the fitness classes. We will be posting new pictures of the kitchen area as soon as it is completed. We would love to have you back again. We look forward to hearing from you. Thanks again, Pat

Best for the BEACH!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 has stayed in this condo for 4 straight years. It's become our "home away from home!" There is nothing better than a 2 minute walk to the beach from the door. The property is always clean and ready to move into! Pat has consistently made the entire process so easy and comfortable and you can't beat the price, period. There is no doubt we will be back next year. Thanks again, Pat, for giving us our condo on the beach. -The Faiella Five :)

Great little condo at a budget price

  • 5 of 5

I spent six weeks in this cute and convenient villa and was very satisfied with it. It is small but clean, and well organized and equipped and came at a very economical price. Its location, on the beach and within easy walking distance of Coligny, is ideal. The pass to the fitness center is an added bonus especially in winter when not all the days are suitable for beach sitting or biking.

The north facing balcony was something of a disadvantage in the winter, but would be a distinct advantage in the warmer weather.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that our guest enjoy there stay at our "Home Away From Home". The balcony is great to relax on in the warmer months and is also nice in the winter (just not as warm) but on the other hand in the summer it is cooler than the other side. Enjoying the fitness club is a bonus with indoor pool, hot tub and exercise equipment. We hope our guest love it and would love to come back. Thanks

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 1st HHI visit and we LOVED IT! I's been a fun and different experience. Live music and bike trails were icing on the cake to a wonderful vacation. P.S. The grouper and calamari at the Crazy Crab were AMAZING. Thank you for sharing your beautiful villa! We'll come back now ya hear! LOL
