Great location + Clean condo + Responsive owner = Wonderful Vacation!
"This was our first experience with VRBO and it certainly won't be our last. This condo was clean, well appointed and exactly as described. One of us is a great cook and although she had to do without her fancy gadgets she was able to cook a respectable meal with the items provided in the kitchen. There was plenty of room in the apartment. We traveled with 2 adults and 3 messy kids and we had room to stretch out and plenty to spare plus a nice, large balcony to enjoy during the evening. There is a pool if sand is not your thing. The beds were comfortable and everything was in perfect working order. This is a beach condo not the Waldorf Astoria, so don't expect excessive luxury or cabana boys with margaritas! It could use a tiny bit of freshening up-carpet/paint, but I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and I'm pretty picky-or so I've been told!
The owner, Melissa, is wonderful and was able to point us to fun activities and great restaurants. She is really on top of things and quick to respond with a phone call or text. A funny anecdote, we had to contact her because the folks above us apparently outfitted their 3 small kids with steel soled boots and conducted relay races at 10:20 pm! Within 5 minutes she had contacted the unit's owner and the festivities were shut down! No noise issues after that!
The location of this condo is great. The beach was a five minute walk across the street. Also, across the street was a rental place where we got our backpack beach chairs, umbrella and our bikes. In the same shopping center there is a good little donut shop and a gourmet Popsicle place. Next door to the condo there is an Italian restaurant named Angelina's that is terrific! Again, all this and more within walking distance.
It was a 15-20 minute bike ride-flat terrain, wide bike path-into Seaside. If you ride at night you might want to bring small flashlights to zip tie to your bike. There is quite a bit of traffic into that area but it moves at 25 mph most of the time. Biking seems to be the preferred method of transportation but you can find parking in Seaside with a little patience. While you are there don't miss the Key Lime Pie with a mile high meringue at Great Southern, the chocolate sea salt fudge at the fudge place in the center of town, and the fantastic gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches at The Meltdown food truck.
You can't go wrong with this condo! It is clean, perfectly located and a great place to come home to after a beach day!"
