Great location and views

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. The views from every room were truly amazing especially from the living room. Spent wonderful moments just gazing out the living room bay window mornings and nights. It's very well furnished, has plenty of pots and pans, utensils, coffee and pantry items. The bathrooms are great with plenty of storage to hold your toiletries. The master bedroom has plenty of drawers to hold clothing. Closet space in the hallway. The pillows and bed is very comfortable. The 2nd bedroom is a little small and the sleeper sofa is not very soft but with additional layers of bedding it wasn't bad for my two boys. The views are very nice from the bedroom. The location is perfect. Right next to the park and beach. Great places to eat and shop all within walking distance. Bottom line, great place to stay for a small family. We would love to stay again. Thank you Mary and Cathleen!
