We spent an extended time at Sandy Bay and enjoyed it very much. Having a stand-alone house is much nicer than the large condo we rented previous years. The location 1/3 mile south of the Atlantic Avenue intersection is great: not too close, not too far. We liked that we could park 2 cars separately under the house, rather than just one bay requiring frequent car moving to get out. The full-width covered porch is very functional and offered unobstructed views of the ocean out every window and door. The benches built into the raised beach stairs are delightful to use for sitting out with out having to lug chairs, and are higher up to afford a great viewpoint.
The interior is outfitted nicely and is very functional. The beds were comfortable, and some had memory foam toppers. We appreciated all the new bed pillows vs. a previous review which mentioned the old ones. To our delight, two of the single beds in the fourth bedroom have been joined to create one larger one which served our purpose much better. It would be useful to have some blackout drapes to draw shut over the vinyl vertical blinds in the upper 2 bedrooms as the light from the morning sun and reflection off the ocean is intense despite the blinds. Elevate Cleans responded promptly to every concern we raised. We will definitely stay here again next year!
This was our first home rental at Ocean Lakes, we usually bring our 5th wheel. Was not sure what to expect other than it looked nice in the photos. Have to say, we were thrilled when we arrived and walked the unit. The space is very functional, the home is well furnished and the porches are just amazing. If we need to rent a unit in the future, this will be the one.
Oh, and the beds - all of us slept wonderfully. No need to worry about bad mattresses here.
