Exactly as promised!

  • 5 of 5

Dale depicts this condo wonderfully...I'm very picky about where I stay at the beach, and this hit everything we desired! Directly beach front as promised, clean and spacious as promised, and near everything you could need on the main strip just as promised. Really, it was phenomenal. The weather was not the best it could have been, but we could not have picked a better place to stay. Definitely going to be returning here when we can! Thank you, Dale!

Nice room with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The room is very nice and clean. Perfect ocean front view from balcony. The room had extra chairs, an umbrella and beach toys, which was a huge plus! Elevators were very congested which made for long waits, and there is only 1 washer and 1 dryer per floor. Also, unless you rent an umbrella and chairs, you will not get to sit close to the water. The beach chair company makes 3-4 rows of chairs, and they are sitting so close we couldn't even see the water from where we had to sit.

Amazing Beach View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this condo and really enjoyed ourselves. The view from the balcony was so incredible. The kitchen was very nice and well stocked with all the cooking necessities. It was nice to be able to utilize a full kitchen. The condo was comfortable for us, a family of 6. We made use of all the beds in the condo with no complaints except the king size bed is very noisy. Any movement at all on the bed caused it to squeak and make noise. Also the condo above us was really loud in the early mornings. Sounded like there was construction going on every day of our stay however I don't believe there was. Other than that our stay was great and we would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review. We will check on the 'mice' in the bed. I will inquire about the construction noise you heard. There is no construction during the summer (all the condos are rented). Dale

Great place and loved the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Place is great and has all you need. The view and beach are perfect. The only issue is the umbrellas on the beach. You cannot get as close as you like. We went to this same location last year and it was way worse this year. Disappointing.

Nice property, nice location, bad beach setup

  • 3 of 5

The unit was clean and in good condition. The property was well maintained and in a nice location. The beach and water are clean and very pretty. On the down side, the unit has no washer/dryer. They are outside at the end of the hallway. Minor issue on that but they are also pay washer/dryers which sucks. The main problem is the beach chair/umbrella setup situation. The rental chairs take up the entire beach, side to side three to four rows deep starting at the waterline. Since the beaches are "private", you cannot go off to the side to get around the crowd so you can have a view. You must set up your personal chairs behind the rentals. There are ropes and signs to indicate this. If you are the type who likes using stinky, sweat soaked beach rental chairs in the middle of the noisy mob, this won't be an issue. For my family this is a deal breaker and we won't be back. It's hard to properly describe the beach situation. Almost have to see it to understand. Shame because everything else is really nice.
