"First, booking on HomeAway could be easier! Annoying lagtime w memos sent back & forth to owner almost cost us the condo! Once we established our own communication channel much easier! Jill is a flexible pleasure to deal with. Key mailed prior to our arrival, paperwork w map, directions, explanations of items in the unit, & on grounds. Easy ride to Ft Pierce & around Hutch Island. Condo has good # of menus nearby excellent restaurants; dont missSat am Farmers Mkt!
Arriving at Ocean Villages, Security very polite & efficient. Easily found unit's building & unloaded luggage, easy access to 4th floor via elevator. Parking close by in covered port, w huge storage bin in front of it stuffed w beach gear & 2 bikes (tire pump in one of bike baskets). Pictures here are true to reality. Opened the door,everyone thrilled at first sight! Lovely comfortable furnishings, gorgeous views of the ocean & Ocean Villages grounds from the huge 4th floor windows. My family of 4 (2 teenagers) settled in quickly. Rooms are spacious, as are closets & bathrooms. Unit is extremely well stocked w towels, beach towels, extra blankets, pillows. Beds all very comfortable. TVs in each bedroom & large HDTV in living area. Basic cable & fast reliable WiFi in the unit. Kitchen is nice sized, also stocked w everything one might need ..glasses, mugs, dishes,serving platters, pans, blender, coffee maker, dishwasher (a bit dated.. careful w the door it's heavy & can crash down) good sized fridge, garbage disposal. Everything clean & functions well. A wet bar & huge pantry closet across the hall from kitchen also well outfitted. (Only thing missing was plastic cups & coffee mugs for pool). Washer/dryer in closet just right of front door. Opened patio doors, set back the windows & enjoyed the refreshing ocean breezes. Unit has AC but barely needed. SeaScape heated pool & hot tub exclusive to tenants of those bldgs (wear your provided wristband once you're on grounds) short walk from front of condo bldg, was never crowded. Beach is just beyond the pool. The OV complex is wheelchair friendly, makes vacation fun for everyone. There's golf, tennis, basketball, bocci. Tiki hut at main pool serves reasonably priced good food & generous drinks, good people watching. Ride a bike over! The library has diverse selection for poolside reading. Seems they have thought of everything,even hoses & sinks at ocean entries for rinsing off sand!
We all enjoyed our stay immensely & will return!"
