You can't beat this location! Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this condo! The location can't be beat. You literally walk down the stairs, turn left, and the beach is right there. Besides the location there were only positives with the condo:

--The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware and utensils so if you cook meals in you should find everything you need. There is also a community grill right outside this condo.

--There were 3 total in our party and we had plenty of room.

--A great balcony overlooking the beach with plenty of seating to eat meals/hang out.

--An electronic keypad to enter/exit the room. This was so nice because we didn't have to worry about losing a key at the beach.

--Air conditioner worked great!

--Plenty of parking.

--In the room, there are lots of sand toys, boogie boards, and some chairs to use at the beach.

--A beach chair/umbrella service sets up right in front of these condos so you are able to rent these, as well.

--The decor in the condo is pretty and soothing. Although the outsides of the condos may not look brand-new, this condo unit has been updated and seems very modern. The condo property itself is very pretty and quiet.

--Cheryl is easy to work with! This condo was a great value!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your vacation in my home and found everything you needed. I'm always trying to make my guests stay a wonderful experience by thinking of what I want while I'm on vacation. During the fall the outside of the condos in my building are supposed to be painted which I hope will improve the look of the property but I do all I can to update the inside and have more projects on the list for the future. I hope you will return again as guests to enjoy those improvements and all the island has to offer!!!

Right on the beach, great Condo and complex

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very comfortable, the complex is beautifully landscaped, 2 heated pools, event center, library, laundry. Condo is second floor and direct beach view, about 50 feet away. Everything we needed for cooking, relaxing, people watching. Our third stay there, just wonderful!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

View was fantastic. On the northern end of the city so the beach wasn't too crowded. Property itself was well maintained. The condo was the best I have stayed in thus far. It was modern and had all of the amenities needed to be self-sustaining. Parking near the condo but still a walk. Check-in and check-out was simple and fast. Walked right onto the beach from the condo. Major plus!!!!

As always, great stay at "Wake to the Waves"

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay from July 11-14, 2017 at "Wake to the Waves". Cheryl is very professional and maintains the condo very nicely. Upon arrival, the condo was very clean and it is literally steps from the beach. It is an ocean front 2nd floor unit, which provides an amazing view from the living room and the bedroom. No complaints at all, we will keep on visiting her SPI home.
