Wife and I spent one week here, checking in on September 13, 2014. Rented the 1 BR, 1 1/2 bath unit, through Surfside Realty. The bedroom has a king size bed, tub/shower combo in the full bath, with 1/2 bath near the living area. Small but adequate kitchen area with all the necessary appliances, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, full size... More

We are currently in room 406.The room has a musty smell and is dated!The bedroom is not on ocean view side and bed is listed as a queen but it is not the queen size that I am familiar with.It looks more like a double. We have stayed at One ocean place several times and Garden City Realty said that... More

We arrived in the late evening after a long day of travel. My family has rented the same unit for the past 2 or 3 years (unit 301). It was nice to settle in. The view in the morning was great! We had a enjoyable weekend. It was clean, well stocked with cooking supplies (pots, pans, utensils, ect) only thing... More

Stayed in same unit the past two years that I've gone with my family. So I can only speak for this unit. It has some updates to it (kitchen, flooring), but more can be done to update it and make it look nicer (furniture, TVs, bathrooms). The balcony was great. It's a decent unit to stay in considering I'm sort... More

Unit 908 was beautiful. Probably one of the best decorated and most comfortable units we've stayed in. We love the Surf master and its clean beach. Easy access. Parking isn't great but works. One problem with night security, but it was worked out. was

I stated in unit 810 in 1012 with daughter and sil. It was one of the nicest places we have stayed. Loved the well equipped kitchen, and so happy to have a washer and dryer. I came back in 2013 with son and another daughter and 2 twin grandsons. They felt the same way about the nice place. Wanted it... More

We stayed here in 2011 in the first tower on the end, 601 maybe? Anyway, this was a well maintained and well appointed 3BR condo with a nice kitchen, dining area, living room, and beautiful ocean views from up high on the balcony. Garden City Realty handled the rental and were great to work with. Some people have posted saying... More

I would probably give this place a Very Good rating except for one thing. It is advertised as a strictly non-smoking property, which is important to me due to my sinus problems, plus what non-smoker wants to smell someone's smoke all the time. A couple in the room one floor down from us was smoking on their balcony all the... More

I could look past the torn wallpaper, the dirty living room couch. It was all about the view. When we stepped out onto the huge balcony with breath taking views we were shocked to find a missing railing. We were 10 floors up and the management thought it sufficient to tie a black trash bag to close the gap. We... More
