"While I spent time at this condo, I kept asking myself one question over and over.....why had I spent time and money traveling to Mexico, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic in the past, when this beautiful place was right here in Florida?! It's a shorter flight, there's no messing around with passports/customs, and here I don't have to worry about getting sick from the food.
First, about the beach. The soft, white, sugary sand is just perfect. It was so clean and white! You could go into the water and there were no foreign objects such as seaweed, coral, or any other rough things on the bottom. The water was clear and beautiful, and seemed to change shades of blue throughout the day. The water was calm, and there were no sea creatures to worry about while I was there.
There were always plenty of chairs and umbrellas placed on the beach, and the on-site ocean kayak and paddle board rental even made things better. I'll never forget renting the paddle board for my friends, they had so much fun - and I had so much fun watching them learn how to do it! :) Of course there is a small charge to rent the kayaks and boards, but it is very reasonable.
Now for the condo itself. I MUCH prefer these smaller buildings (27 units), rather than being in a "cookie-cutter" resort with a lot of people around! There was plenty of room within the unit. We slept four people, and with 1.5 bathrooms we never felt crowded. The pullout sleeper sofa was a blessing.
It was decorated beautifully, comfortable, and a GREAT value for the money! It was clean, clean, CLEAN!! Everything worked perfectly such as the washer/dryer, sinks, toilets, showers, etc. The floors are tile, and nothing smells of mildew or anything else. I LOVED the chairs on the third floor balcony, it was so relaxing to sit and watch the ocean activities in front of me. Parking my rental car was never a problem; there were always spaces available, including one designated with our room number.
In the future, I hope this place stays exactly as it is. I would not have wished for, or changed a thing. It was quiet and peaceful, unlike some of the other places I've been to.
I've tried to think of one, but there just isn't one bad thing to say about this unit.
If you want a romantic getaway, this is it. You won't be disappointed, don't even think twice about booking it! Do it before I do again! I LOVED this place!!!!!!"
