Quiet, cute place on the beach!
"Overall, loved my stay at this castle beach condo! It truly was perfect. Also the time I went being mid Dec is good, not too much chaos yet. So the place was pretty quiet, nice and relaxing. It's on the 3rd floor, but there's stairs and elevator. Not bad at all. Parking as well as guest spots, though I can see in "season" the place must be a nightmare as there aren't much extra parking spaces for guests. But I was there a month or so before the busy season, so I was fine! There is Pinchers crab shack just about a mile up, a nice beach walk, then you can get the trolley there too if you want to keep going further up the beach! Great system! Ubers were very affordable and quick to get as well. There is a little plaza right down the road too, across from Pinchers kind of. And then a medical center in case of medical / prescription needs. Someone told me this app to use to easily catch the trolley at various stops, it's called "Next Stop" i think? Also the condo unit had a basket of menus for places to go, very cool! It's in a really great spot I think! I loved it. The only complaints I have, are being it's a 7 day rental, or more, and that there is a pretty hefty cleaning fee the renter pays, the owner should be supplying things for that. Examples- there are no trash bags, no laundry soap, no dishwasher soap, no extra toilet paper in the bathrooms or extra paper towels. Making day-to-day up keep and cleaning somewhat challenging. Additionally, there is no salt/pepper, coffee for the coffee maker (though there are K-cups, but no keurig maker??!!), and other things like creamer, sweeteners, etc, things that you would expect in a condo rental that you would also get in a hotel for example. Again, these are minor, but they are annoying. Thankfully the trash chute was right outside the condo door so i could just throw away trash as needed instead of collecting in the unit trash can without a bag. I wasn't about to buy a bunch of stuff for only being there the time i was. Plus the cleaning fees are supposed to include these items for cleaning LOL! It also would have been nice to have two sets of keys, as I had a friend with me for part of the time, and we had to coordinate in case one of us left/returned without the other. The welcome letter mentions what to do with the 2 sets of keys, but i only received one. All in all, I would stay again for the price it was just perfect! And communicating with the rental office was a breeze, they were very helpful!"
