Reviewer Comments:

Gulf Place is a great location and very nice studio condo -- never needed the car. All the local restaurants are great. It's too bad about the "view" going away. They should really update the pictures of the view. While we were notified about the Mon-Fri construction noise you really could not enjoy sitting on the balcony to enjoy what little view there was. And the bed is really way to high off the ground. Those steps tools are dangerous at night and if you are short it's really a struggle to get in/out of the bed.

We loved staying at grain of sain! Cute place that utilizes the small space perfectly. Great balcony and free laundry. I worry about the view next time since there is currently construction going on in front of the building. The one story beach houses in the pic are no more :/

Owner's Response: Hi Ashley, we are glad you enjoyed your cozy stay at Grain of Sand. There are some beach front condos going up in place of the homes but we are hoping there is still some of a view. We hope to see you again soon.

Reviewer Comments:

My wife and I spent a week at Grain of Sand. It was a nice little unit. The rental page says it sleeps 4, and while it can, it would be a very tight squeeze, especially if you have 4 adults. The unit was very clean when we checked in. Only have two things I would bring up....first, there was no potholder in the kitchen. We had to improvise the one night we actually cooked, because dinner was finished in the oven before we realized this. Secondly, the bed is very high off the ground. There's a two-step step stool you have to use to get up there, so if you have trouble climbing stairs, you might want to give it a second thought before booking. Across street, when looking off of the balcony, they're putting up what looks to be like a 3-4 story condo building, so the ocean view might soon be obstructed. Overall, we had a great stay, and would stay here again. If we bring our two boys, though, we'd probably find a larger condo.

Had great time but of all weekends it was very windy and was cool. The only complaint was at night it would get hot and you couldn't get the a/c to go below a certain temperature. Hot mamma. :).

Reviewer Comments:

Have stayed twice and will be back next spring. Gulf Place is a charming 'village' setting, and we love our unit; comfortable, quiet, and nicely decorated. Oversee has been very responsive answering questions, etc. Easy to get to restaurants, walking trails, beach. Could use a grab bar in shower, and please move the mirror back to front hall. Thank you.
