Comfortable,efficient, ocean front view condo was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely thought this condo was awesome! We loved the fact that it had a beach theme. All the beds including the futons for sleeping, were very comfy. The kitchen was very efficient for cooking, because we had everything we needed to make nice meals for our family; just like home! Having a big refrigerator was effective for all our groceries too. My children loved the bunk beds, and loved retreating there even when they weren't sleeping! The big balcony with the ocean view was my favorite, especially in the mornings with a nice cup of coffee! We also thought it was very convenient having a Walmart within walking distance. The only small problems we had, were sometimes keeping a connection to the internet with our laptops. Also, we didn't know that the walk up gate's combo was the same one you use for the pool. Other than that, our stay was very comfortable, relaxing, and memorable! Thank you Laura for sharing your terrific condo with our family!😀?😀?😀?

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Condo location was perfect. We ended up bringing our 11 yr old niece and nephew and we still had plenty of room. Our one year olds pack and play fit perfectly in the living room without being in the way. Owner is very nice and quick to respond. We definitely will be staying here again!

Nice ocean view location.

The condo was well maintained. It was close to the office, pools and laundry room. There was a nice view of the ocean from the deck.

Lovely condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, granddaughter and her bff stayed 4 nights in this condo and Sun, Surf, Sea! Is the perfect name for it. The decor was very beachy and the 12 yr old girls loved the bunks. Although we didn't do much cooking, the kitchen was very well equipped. The two pools were great and the outdoor showers were a tremendous help for keeping the sand out of the condo.

Since we can't seem to take a trip without a visit or two to Walmart, it was nice being across the street. Memories of their first trip to the beach will be among the girls' favorites. Thank you, Ms Ripple!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. Owner was great to work with and property had everything we could have needed. We loved that the owner provided some beach toys since we traveled all the way from Colorado. The pools were awesome when we needed a break from the ocean! We would definitely stay at this property again!
