"We stayed for 4 days. The SPI management company is great to deal with, they are very friendly and quick to answer questions. You will need to print and sign the contract and fax/email back to them, so make sure you have a printer available and have a way to send it back to them. You call them when you are 30 minutes out, and when you are at the bridge and they have someone meet you at the property. We arrived to Continental #104. First, they do not have parking in front of the property, you have to park across the street, either on the street or in a parking lot for residents/visitors. There is a locked gate and they give you the code, so it's secure. Upon getting inside, it's definitely like the photos, except the couch is a bit run down and odd to sit in because of the 2 cushions, just don't sit down the middle of it. There was some damage to walls, but they say they note all of that and should not worry about it. There is a TV in each bedroom and living room. There is an XBOX for games, but we didn't use it. DVD player available too. You have everything you need in the kitchen, except pot holders (when you use the oven, you kind of want them). You get dish soap and 2 tabs for the dishwasher. They pretty much provide you with linens and towels, and get one little bottle each of shampoo/conditioner/body wash. But if you are staying for more than a day, you will most likely bring your own. The little bars of soap were sufficient for us. You will need to bring your own detergent if you intend on washing clothes. There is no direct access to the beach from the patio, which is nice in space, since it spans the length of your condo from living room to master bedroom. The master bedroom bed is _extremely_ noisy, when getting in, changing positions or getting out, but very comfortable (not firm though, in case you like firm beds). The bunk beds are possibly queen or double beds (top and bottom), so they are a good size. The view of the ocean is a bit limited, but that was because we wanted the convenience of the first floor (picture on site depicts correctly). There is a pool, which we didn't end up using. There is a wash off area by back gate. You can see the bay fireworks (Thurs and Fri night) from the front of the condo, but probably best if you were on the bay and we didn't get to stay for the beach fireworks on Saturday night. Beach isn't too crowded in this area. Overall, we had fun, felt at home. Renting a condo beats renting a hotel any time."
