Location, location, location!
This penthouse property is comfortable, perfectly located, and has fabulous views from every room. In addition, the owner's library is a delight. It was perfect for my husband, my mother, and me.
Beautiful place with an excellent location. No issues getting settled in.
Great location and views
Overall this was a very good experience. The location and views are great. Glad we went during the off season as the traffic can be really crazy in the area. I don't think I would call this ocean front and really not waterfront since there is a street and park between the condo and the water.
A few minor items in the condo could really improve the experience though:
- the toaster is on its last legs (not much cost to provide a decent one)
- the can opener is so worn out, it really can't open and can effectively
- there is supposedly a heater (controls are on the bedroom walls), but the circuit breakers are off so that doesn't work (didn't want to risk switching on something that might be a problem). Having said that, we couldn't find any heater vents, so not sure there's really a heater anyway. :)
- the lighting in the bedroom isn't very good for reading after dark (even though there are plenty of books provided for reading if you wish)
On the positive side - there is plenty of room, the bathrooms are nicely updated, was great to have a garage (no large vehicles allowed), and as I said the location is great.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your comments.
The description has been changed to reflect that it is a "Panoramic Ocean View Penthouse."
The toaster, can opener and reading lamps will be replaced.
We're not sure why the circuit breaker was off, but a phone call to our manager usually solves these type of issues. There is heat but it is seldom used in our apartment because of the insulated roof, walls and windows.
We are really pleased that you liked our diverse selections of books. Some of those authors have visited or stayed in our apartment.
Hope you'll return again.
Beautiful and convenient location
Beautiful property, beautiful view, and perfect location. Extremely helpful to have the parking space. Highly recommend staying here!
