"After my son's military graduation, we decided we needed some family time together - and where better than on a beach!! I researched many (I mean MANY!!) listings before contacting Maureen at Barefoot Beach Rentals regarding this unit. She was a joy to work with right from the start - timely communication, helpful answers to questions, and just being pleasant to talk with! A few things that tipped the scales in favor of this condo before even seeing the unit - keyless entry (a code for the locks), gorgeous pool, and beach chairs and umbrella included!! (There are an additional 3 beach chairs and a wagon in the laundry room.)
The pictures of this 9 floor unit are spot on! You walk in and are immediately drawn to the bank of windows overlooking the Gulf - the colors of the water were incredible!! It is a quiet end unit with expansive views to the west toward the pier, as well as great views to the east and Pineapple Willy's. It is very clean, has comfortable beds and furniture, and the kitchen is stocked with everything one needs - even a crockpot! There are plenty of plates, glasses, and utensils so you can load the dishwasher for several days and never run short.
We loved the layout for a family of 6 - plenty of space to spread out. The living room had plenty of seating which was great for our family to watch the Rio Olympics!! The balcony is huge with a million dollar view! I also appreciated security on the property - it is gated both from the street as well as the beach. Security did routine checks with a walk around the pool area, making sure only guests were using the area. The guests were also very respectful of others with no loud parties, music, or noise late at night.
We spent one rainy afternoon touring some other resort complexes, and it was unanimous that Long Beach and unit 4-907 is where we would want to return to in the future! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!"
