"We rented four 3-bedroom units (804, 603, 403 and 607) in Belmont Towers in September 2016 for a large family reunion at the beach—celebrating my mom’s 90th! Previously, we were a small group of four adults and we had always stayed farther out on the boardwalk near 25th St. For this trip, though, we needed a building with several large units available for our reunion week, and we had to have an elevator, and Belmont was one of the few places to offer what we needed. But we had major concerns about the location—too loud? too close to the action? crowded parking? NONE of our concerns proved to be true, and EVERYTHING about this building and location were perfect! As a result, our smaller group of six will be renting a 3-bedroom unit there again this fall.
Our first impression was “Wow—it looks just like the pictures!” If you do a lot of vacation renting, you know this isn’t always the case. The rooms were nicely furnished, very spacious, and the view was just as it appears in the photos—beach! The office staff was helpful and friendly at check-in, and they responded very quickly when one unit’s fridge seemed to be malfunctioning (it wasn’t, it just needed to be kept closed after filling it with groceries and allowed to cool). Everything functioned well in all four of the units. They were clean, modern, and nicely furnished. Parking was great as well—each unit has two assigned spaces so there is never a worry about finding a spot in the garage. The elevators and hallways were kept very clean.
Our concern about being “too close to the action” was, well, ridiculous. We loved the location! We could walk to so many places and never had to move the car. Older kids could check out the rides and arcades on their own, Tony’s Pizza and Fractured Prune Donuts (practically daily staples for us) were steps away, and the little bars on and off the boardwalk were friendly and fun (Alibi Room was our favorite!). We were on upper floors, and even on the weekend the noise from the boardwalk was not an issue.
I cannot comment on the pool or fitness facility as we never used these. We are beach and boardwalk people, and never made it to the pool. But it looked lovely and people were certainly using it. I also found the staff at Vantage Rental Office to be really helpful and friendly. Maria helped us find the right units for our group and was always quick to reply to email and voice mail. Thank you, Maria!"
