"Had a girls weekend for 13 gals. There were enough beds for 12 and then there was the couches. Enough bathrooms to support all of us too, so that is saying something. However, one of them only had a shower the size you would expect on a cruise ship. Also, be very careful about the hot water, it comes out scalding. I did get burned when I went for my first shower....so be forewarned. I cannot give the place a 5 just for that....a quarter turn on the shower faucet went from warm to scalding. Beds were comfortable enough. There was definitely enough towels for all of us ladies, so that was great.
Ooh, one tidbit, they have trolley/carts out by the parking lot for anyone to use to transport your luggage and groceries from your car to the condos, so utilize them. They worked out great!
The view was amazing! From the master bedroom downstairs you just follow the path and climb the stairs over the dune and boom, THE BEACH! From the living room we would watch the pods of dolphins swim by and jump out of the water, constantly! Occasionally we would see a lone sea lion, that alone was amazing. Times like those make me miss being so close to the beach. I do warn you, the view was amazing, but it was awfully bright, I wore sunglasses indoors. They have blinds, but who would miss out on that view.
Since it was all girls, copious amounts of wine and margaritas were consumed. The condo had more than enough wine and margarita glasses for us all, so no need for any paper or plasticware for us.
We also chose to have all our meals at the condo. There was definitely more than enough pots and pans. We had taco night (the real Mexican version with all the trimmings), pancakes, bacon, eggs for breakfast. We also were able to make 2 types of pasta dishes for dinner. Hopefully the menu gives you the idea of how many pots and pans and baking sheets we had to work with. So the kitchen really worked out for us.
I recommend this condo if you plan on just staying on the beach and not venturing elsewhere. The local grocery store and Target were a quick 10 minute drive away, but the main cities are a bit further.
Now for the owners. They were great to deal with! Quick responses to questions and requests. I flew in from North Carolina to meet with my girls traveling from SoCal so I beat them there by 2 hours. So the owners politely accommodated my request for an earlier check-in. Mind you no one stayed right before we got there so the place was ready. Thank you Betty!"
