"We joined our family at the beach for Thanksgiving this year. They own a condo in this same complex, so location was our first priority in booking this unit. The complex itself is a bit dated but, by all appearances, well-run and well-maintained. The beach is white sand and was very clean. The two outdoor pools, though too cold to swim in, were clean. We did swim in the indoor pool and use the hot tub, both of which were fine.
The condo unit was great. The balcony looks right onto the beach. The air conditioner kept the unit very comfortable (the weather was a bit warm for Thanksgiving). It is nicely decorated. The beds and linens were clean and comfortable and plenty of towels were provided. The unit had a lot of nice amenities, including extra sheets, pillows and blankets and plenty of pots, pans, dishes and glasses.
Though a small starter set of shampoo and soap was provided, bring your own, there is not enough for all of your party for your entire stay. I would also bring a small bottle/box of laundry detergent (there is a washer/dryer in the unit). The humidity is high and towels do not dry quickly. You will use a lot of them, particularity if you take them to the beach or pool. There is a Publix grocery store on the mainland side of the bridge. Stop there to stock up before coming onto the island (though it is a quick trip back if you forget something). The unit has a Keurig coffee maker. Bring pods if you are a coffee-drinker.
We enjoyed our stay there and will rent this unit again when we go back. One note though: prior to arriving, you will get a letter from the property management company giving you access/use/departure instructions. The is seemingly a unique code for every door, elevator floor and gate in this place, all of which are in the letter. Text them to everyone in your party. It is difficult to get around the complex if you don't have them with you or have them memorized."
