Birthday/Vacation stay

  • 4 of 5

We adored the condo we got to stay at!!! Especially with the pool downstairs and the beach. The view was fantastic!! People there were friendly!!

Only thing was wished there was a broom to use for all the But one of the elevators keep going down, it wasn't working most of the stay. The vending machines wouldn't work unless you needed to break a dollar bill.

Beautiful views, beachfront property!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was exactly the R & R we (me, hubby, and 2 teenagers) needed after several days of hiking in the smokey mountains. We parked and didn't leave for the 2 days we were there because we didn't "need" to. There is a snack booth by the pool that sells burgers ($5), hot dogs ($3), and Margaritas! Also within walking distance is Spinnakers grill (seafood cravings), 3 brothers pizza, and Alvins for beach stuff and souvenirs. Although we took our own, Tina did have quite a few beach items available in the closet (umbrella, chairs, sand toys, floor mats). There are plenty of dishes, pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, toaster, BBQ grills downstairs etc.. for making meals which is something that is usually a must have for my family when traveling but this trip was just a quick stop for us for some R & R. It was clean, AC was COLD, hot water was hot! Thank you Tina!! this is a place I would stay at again!
