Older Property, Great View

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at By The Sea. They had signs around apologizing for their "winter work." They were fixing the elevator, planting flowers and making it Spring/Summer ready. We loved our view. We loved our stay. Andrea was very responsive to all communication, and the small issue we had, she made sure to let us know it would be addressed immediately. We hope to be back some day.

One issue that should have been addressed sooner.

  • 3 of 5

Nice large condo, however there was an old leak that was moldy on the bathroom ceiling. Not sure why it wasn't repaired yet because it had been there awhile. Nicely updated and comfortable. I would like to stay again if the ceiling gets repaired.

Fantastic views and fabulous condo!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this condo for three nights in the middle of August 2017 to visit the beach. We loved the view of the ocean through the sliding glass doors. We stayed at a similar condo last year in the same complex, but on the third floor. With this condo on the 10th floor, the traffic noise was much quieter. The unit itself is as advertised---updated fixtures with a full-size fridge, smooth-top stove, dishwasher and wi-fi. Everything worked just fine. My daughter loved having her own bedroom and bathroom to herself while me and my wife used the "master" bedroom and bath. Being across from the beach was a huge convenience, but I'd be very very careful crossing the street. I recommend walking to the nearest light or driving to the seawall. The condo is close to grocery stores and restaurants along Seawall Blvd., which is another plus. I really think we got an excellent value for the price we paid and I highly recommend this place!

Perfect beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Parking permit needed, however the back parking lot is fenced in at night so it's work it so you can leave your beach stuff in the back of your truck. Condo is very nice. Had everything we needed. Great view and great location.
