"Here is our pros and cons for this rental:
*it is SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH! It is less than a block to get to the beach! It was so nice to be so close! (we even carried a pop up shade thing and it was fine)
*the air conditioning was AMAZING! It was so nice to come back from a day at the beach and have the condo be so cool and comfortable.
*the kitchen is spacious has plenty of room to cook meals.
*although I don't necessarily know if they belong to the owner of the condo (as it says they do not provide chairs/umbrellas for the beach) there is an outdoor closet with plenty of things to stay comfortable at the beach. A few chairs, a pop-up tent, some beach toys, boogie boards, a cooler. We brought some toys with us and left them in that closet as well. I can't promise they will be there for the next person who rents it, since I don't believe the owner provides them...but they were there for us.
*it's close to tons of restaurants and convenient stores, so they are easy to walk to as well
*there is tons of sleeping spaces, a queen bed, two twin beds, a bunk bed with a twin and a full, and a pull out queen couch.
*the owner was easy to work with, always quickly responded to any questions we had before and after our stay.
*there were outdoor showers to rinse off after the beach
*although there is plenty of sleeping space, there is very little "relaxing" space. There is only a small couch and a love seat, so for the 8 adults we had, most of us were stuck sitting on a bar stool or on the floor if we all wanted to watch TV at night. It would be comfortable for maybe 5 adults, but it was not comfortable for a larger group l like ours. This was our biggest complaint about this location and would be the only reason we would tell a larger adult group to find another location.
*there is a washer/dryer provided, but the dryer takes FOREVER to dry. Like...3 hours to dry a load of towels. It also squeaks something fierce, but I was able to 'solve' that issue by putting something heavy on top of the dryer (a pack of water)
*while most of the appliances/pans in the kitchen work just fine, some of them are getting a little worn out and could use some updating.
*most of the other things that were annoying were little, and could be fixed very easily, i.e.. lots of burnt out light bulbs, back door sticks badly
With a little updating and maybe some better seating arrangements, we would recommend this place to anyone looking for a rental at SPI!"
