If you're looking to be away from the hustle and bustle of seven mile beach, but still close enough to walk down to the beach this is a great place. The space has a very usable kitchen, is clean and comfortable, and if you have a rental car it's within 15 minutes of everything along seven mile beach.
If you plan to watch the ocean from your balcony, this isn't the place (it's a block away from the beach), but if you plan to be out and about exploring the island, this is a great place to come back to each night! It's also a very short walk to several great local restaurants and also close to Hell and the Turtle Farm.
The unit was located on the northern end of 7 mile beach, or the southern part of West Bay. There is a little beach restaurant about a 15 minute walk at the Seafire resort that has reasonably priced food that was really good. Fabulous views of sunsets from this location and a long white sandy beach, but far enough away from the bustle of 7 mile that you can relax. The unit is on the 2nd floor, and you have to go out the front door and down the stairs and walk around to the gate between the two complexes to access the beach. However it is very secure and relatively private. There was an outside shower to rinse your feet or gear off before returning to the unit. The unit was clean, and well appointed with what we needed for our stay. The beds were a bit firm for our tastes, but clean with good linens, and plenty of towels. Ceiling fans in all the rooms. There are two chairs for use on the beach. We received a lovely welcome basket upon arrival. The unit did not come with any other beach toys such as kayaks, beach coolers, paddle boards, etc., but you could rent paddle boards from the Renaissance to the right. There is not great snorkeling directly in front of the unit but we found some nice reefs probably a mile down the beach and off to the right, however you have to go out pretty far to get to them, though even at a few hundred yards off shore the water was not deep (10 to 15 feet). The water was very warm and relatively calm for most of our stay, and the current was not too strong. It was a quiet place and I miss the views of the ocean and beach already. The unit itself is not far from the edge of the ocean. Would recommend the location to friends and family.
