Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very responsive to my emails. The booking process was a breeze. The townhome is located in a great location. The walk to the beach was about 7-8 minutes but wasn’t bad. We will definitely consider staying here again. Thanks for an awesome vacation!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place!! Worked perfect for our family. Spacious and nicely decorated. Pool right outside the front area was great for the kids. Walk to beach about 7-8 min from the back patio. Nice to walk thru the complex and not across any busy roads. If you are bringing lots of stuff to the beach like a big cooler and many chairs use a wagon or wheeled cart – it worked perfect for us. We also walked to restaurants, ice cream shop, the water park, mini golfing, and even Target. We will be back, owner was very nice and responsive.

Very nice unit.

  • 5 of 5

Top bunk mattresses were a little skimpy and the master bath only worked as a shower but overall a very nice unit. I liked the TV's in each room. Quick access to the pool. All appliances worked and it was well stocked with linens and dishes.

Walk to beach was quite a bit further than expected. Lugging kids back and forth was a chore.

  • 3 of 5

The unit is located in the second building off Hwy 98. This makes for a pretty long walk to get to the beach.

As far as the condo itself, the unit was clean and had the amenities we needed.

The top bunks have thin pads instead of mattresses. Even the kids stated they were uncomfortable.

Just a heads up, the beach is considered private and there is a guy that will set up two chairs and an umbrella for a fee each day. If you don’t want to pay for the service, you will have to setup early before he gets out there or place your stuff behind the lines of paying customers.

Water and sand were amazing.

Great place for great price!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was great and had everything we needed including a baby gate to block stairs. I had read from previous guest that the upper floor was warm so we packed fans for each room and we thought the bedrooms stayed cold after my husband closed 2 vents on the first floor to push air upstairs along with the fans. It was an amazing vacation and the beach was clean and clear. The townhouse was spacious a d clean also. It was a great place for a great price. Had tiny issue with getting the code to get in on arrival, but the owner called me promptly to resolve the issue.
