"The whole experience was very nice. The process of reserving, paying, contacting prior and pick-up of the keys was easy. We arrived after check in, so we tend to have to pick up keys later. The real estate office was very easy to find and the keys were where they told me to go. There was no one at the front office at the condo, so we were a little lost at how to get in through locked entrance doors and gates, but we followed another family. Once we figured all the locked gates and doors out, it went smoothly. You have to have one of the keys with you when you go anywhere. We have run into this at other condos at other beaches also. The condo was very nice. It was well stocked with dishes and the necessary start up supplies and it was clean. We rented beach chairs from a local place. Grocery stores were close by. The views from the balcony were awesome. I loved being on an end unit and being able to see the pool also. We were a little intimidated by the sign telling us to open the balcony doors and windows before cooking, because the smoke detectors were sensitive. We followed directions out of fear of setting them off. We also got a note on our car the first night that we must pay a parking fee of $25. The office was closed so we had no idea how to do that with the office closed. We asked a security person and he said to come down either at 10 that night or the next morning. The office was open for paying the next morning, even though the signs read that it was not open except during the week. Parking instructions should be spelled out better by the condo office. The reminder ticket was fine, but they should explain when and where to go to pay the fees. The elevators stopped working at one point during our stay and caused a major people jam from the beach when a storm moved in. We just took the stairs. I'm sure this was inconvenient for people staying on higher floors, or people with lots of beach stuff and small children. One of the elevators stayed out of order for half of the week, so it did cause a back-up to use the elevators. Other than that my only complaint was that local stores do not stay open later in the summer. There are plenty of nice restaurants in the area though. I absolutely loved the community center to go to and jog around their pond on their paths. There was plenty of shaded benches and indoor facilities for water at the center. All and all it was a really nice beach and condo."
