Close to the pool and more spacious than the pictures reveal.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean. Very close to the pool. The walk to the beach is a little longer than anticipated but it was shaded and scenic. The beach was gorgeous. I recommend going early in the morning and in the evenings it's less crowded by chairs and umbrellas and you are more likely to see dolphins during those times. I also recommend doing the events on Harbor Walk. And I recommend the Hydro Jet excursion over the dolphin tours. We saw more dolphins and had more interaction with them then on the dolphin cruise. Overall we had a great time my only complaint was the upstairs shower head hardly had water pressure. P.S. if anyone is sleeping in the pullout sofa bring a fitted queen sheets and a blankets.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry about the sleeper sofa sheets. I live in the complex and you should have called me I would have gotten some out for you. They are usually out but cleaner must have forgotten and I did not catch that. Sorry for that. Hope you will be back to stay again with us. Thank you

Residence was not well taken care of and had pre-existing damages.

Would not recommend.

Owner's Response: All pre-existing damages have been repaired along with the damages that these underage kids caused. This was a group of 18 and 19 year olds that came and I was unaware that they were all under age. We have made some improvements and replaced the carpet upstairs with hardwood.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

I'd say its a great location we loved staying here. The pool is right outside the door and the beach is not a very far walk away.Going to the beach was extra fun chairs and buckets to use and on the rainy afternoon we had cards and some games available to play. Very clean and we'll be staying again in the future!

Dog friendly and close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I along with our three dogs recently stayed in this unit. Steve and Lynda manage this property and they are awesome. The unit itself is nice for the money and it is close the ocean by short walk. The full kitchen is fully upgraded with a nice granite countertop and the marble floors are very nice! It is very quiet overall and the pool is literally right outside the front door. There is a grocery store and a lot of shopping right across the street (and on both sides of the front of property) and it makes for a very easy walk and beats sitting in beach traffic. Our dogs enjoyed the property and it was nice seeing that others were able to also bring their dogs with them on vacation. The unit has a brand new air condition unit and it works very well. I would recommend that the owner rehang the downstairs bathroom door as it swings in and makes it a little cramped. Not a deal killer for us though. :) There is a washer and dryer which was very nice to have while on vacation as we brought home all clean laundry. (Don't pack too much!) The upstairs master bathroom could use a little updating in the tub area. Overall our stay here was fantastic!!! We enjoyed it every much and it was very comfortable. We met some really great people and I feel like we left with a few new friends. The management is VERY friendly and proactive and made sure we were happy renters. We can't wait to come back!!!! :)
