"My wife and I had stayed in a different unit within the same building (38) last summer and we really enjoyed the location and proximity to the shopping area across the street and short drive/walk to the pool and beach. Other reasons for choosing this unit over others included the price and availability of HD television. We are Warriors fans and I was so grateful we had HD programming to watch the NBA Finals while we were there (regardless of the unfortunate outcome). Robert was very kind and easy to communicate with prior to our stay.
This condo met our needs nicely and it is only a few slight changes away from being a 5-star unit:
*Pro's: HDTV, comfortable bed, ice maker in the freezer (don't have to buy ice), boogie boards and skim board provided (great for kids), folding chair w/sunshade was nice to have.
*Con's: Owner could have provided a cooler, no stereo/music player for the unit, beach chairs were very small and cheap (they sell the nice Tommy Bahama ones at Costco for a reasonable price and it would go a long way to have 2+ stocked in the unit instead of the little cheap ones), the fins in the closet were badly cracked and need to be replaced (also would be nice to stock with 2+ pairs), the bedroom fan makes a slight "ticking" noise for the light sleepers out there, and the lighting was a little dim throughout the unit (most importantly in the bathroom and vanity area).
So overall we enjoyed our stay and the condo met our expectations but we had to rent Tommy B chairs and a snorkel set from a nearby shop because the condo didn't have a cooler (the chair has a cooler built-in and they're also more comfortable than what was provided) or snorkel/fins for us. All of which can be provided by the owner at a small cost to really "wow" renters in the future. It would really have people raving about this condo. We expected to rent these items and Robert made no promises that these would be provided. He was very honest an up-front with me prior to booking."
