"This is my first review, so I will try to touch on the things I would have liked to know before renting. Each summer we rent a beach place for a month. This year we were lucky enough to come across this one. Let me start by saying that the pictures posted depict the actual place perfectly. Everything in this unit was top of the line and who ever decorated it did a gorgeous job. So here are my observations:
-Family/Living/Dining: plenty of seating, stylish & comfortable. Large TV with all the apps, sound bars, DVD player & Apple tv.
-Kitchen: all usual appliances & essentials plus tons of extras: Coffee machine, 3 crock pots, 2 blenders, small toaster, toaster oven, tons of cookware and place settings.Separate ice maker and wine frig. The only thing we couldn't find were cookie sheets, but maybe we didn't look hard enough.
-Bedrooms:comfortable mattresses, nice linens & plenty of room to move around. Large TVs in each bedroom with sound systems.
-Bathrooms; modernly equipped. Ample towels. Hair dryer. Makeup mirrors in the 2 masters. Shower pressure good. 2 shower heads in each.
-Laundry Room: modern front load washer & dryer, large capacity units. Sink, vacuum and a mop/swifter. An iron and small ironing board.
-Trash was easy as there was a trash chute right outside the condo door.
-Wifi works throughout condo.
-2 Balconies: large with great views of ocean, pier 60 & evening sunsets. Extra frig and sink.
-Hotel Gym: clean with treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, free-weights, machines, towels, headsets & water. Perfect for our needs.(No added cost)
-Pool: provided towels, chairs, indoor & outdoor rentable cabanas, & a cafe/bar. Kid pool.
-Condo Parking: garage was close to elevator & provided secure parking for 2.
-LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. Right on popular beach, walk to shopping, restaurants, marina, and Pier 60. Plenty of Rentals avail on ground level such as beach chair, boards, bikes, scooters. There is a small grocery store inside of the Surf store connected to the Hyatt grounds.
There is construction being done around the Hyatt so it could be a little noisy at times, but it wasn't a problem for us as we are an active family.
Would definitely recommend to family, friends and YOU! Our Family and Friends loved it. Hope the review helps.
PS: You will have to provide an extra $100 to the homeowner assoc. after final payment- supposedly you get it back...I'm still waiting, but am sure I'll be getting it soon."
