This is a great vacation property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo was as pictured and the area of the beach that it sits on is well manicured and is great for a family. There are many restaurants and gift shops within walking distance. Thank you Myra for helping make our family vacation one to remember.

Old fixtures, cool air

  • 1 of 5

The furnishings are not updated, appliances and plumbing fixtures very very old, microwave does not cook popcorn well and takes twice as long to heat, bathroom door does not close, stains on few towels, no spread or comforter for trundle or couch, vacuum ancient could not work it. We all got sore throats while in the condo, but not when out of condo, there may be filter probs, dryer vent had not been cleaned. Mattress was very comfy and air condo worked well

What makes this condo unique

My favorite thing about this condo is the shaded sitting area that is so restful . The porch swings provide a wonderful atmosphere for conversations with family and friends. Very family friendly. Can sit and rest there for hours. View of the beach from behind the dunes. Awesome!
