As stated in other reviews, East Coast Management will gladly accept your rent and security deposit and FIND a way to evict high school students from their properties and keep your rent and security deposit.

I stayed the week of August 12 - 19th at the WAVES and the apartment are very spacious; however, when I pulled the blanket back off the bed it was a big pee stain on the blanket. I brought my own linen and I even washed their blanket at the laundrymat down the street. It was explained to me when... More

I had read the others reviews of the hotel before staying at The Waves for senior week and became very nervous. My mom had called to ask about the "scam" several of them mentioned and the woman on the phone had calmed most of our fears so we had assumed the reviews were just a few kids exaggerating their experience....

Someone pointed out these reviews before our kids went to the beach for senior week. I called ECM because I was very concerned about "security" entering rooms without anyone... More

I stayed at the Waves for a week at the end of June. I was a bit skeptical due to the ratings, but reasonably optimistic. The stay was fine. It was definitely roomy, plenty of space for four adults and two kids, my brother and his girlfriend even stayed with us for a night and it was still comfy. The... More

We rented a timeshare. The Waves is easy to find and set along the Coastal Highway. When we arrived the impression was a worn unit, yet spacious. It was very clean. We were very comfortable throughout the week with easy access to the beach and amenities. I really liked the indoor pool. The beds made for a good nights sleep.... More
