My family stayed in unit 1005 over the 4th of July weekend. To begin with, prices were really jacked up for the holiday - $1200.00 for a 3 night stay in a smelly outdated unit. The temp was set at 78 when we entered and it was extremely hot. You could tell there had been pets in the unit and... More

Condo #506 was good. I was very worried reading some of these reviews but the staff was pleasant, the pool was awesome and we even took advantage of the basketball/tennis court. The views are breathtaking. The furniture is probably a little dated but the beds were comfortable enough and no one comes to the beach to stay in the room!!... More

Overal the location is GREAT! Quiet and had no concerns about safety. Beach view was fantastic. Gave 3 stars for that alone. I stayed with my sister and family as a last minute invitation. She had unit 701. Thought there would be plenty of room. There were 4 of them and I was to have the pullout couch. Being familiar... More

Our decision to rent By The Sea's unit 409 turn out to be a bad one. My wife, daughter, three grandchildren and I stayed there from July 19 through July 22. The unit is advertised in Betty & Wilma's site as newly remodeled...we didn't see any indication of this. There were only two pillows and two blankets supplied for a... More

We stayed several times at BTS and by far #1004 was the greatest. I rent directly from the owner - top of the line beds, view, everything you would ever want in kitchen and unit. Call early the words out her unit gets booked quickly. Ignore the staff they dont like renters and are very unfriendly unless you own, live... More

Best vacation ever. We stayed in unit 309 of By the Sea Condominiums. The complex was nice and the condo was GREAT!!!!! Everything exceeded our expectations. The pics of the unit on their website were great but in person it was even better than imagined. My husband and I loved the private balcony overlooking the ocean. We will be back... More

We have stayed in 3 different units at By the Sea over the past two years. The units are clean, comfortable, and a great value for the money. Sure if you want to stay on the beach, plan on paying double at least. One more thing. They have 24 hour security and we feel very safe there. I am unsure... More

We stayed in Unit 507 of By The Sea and Unit 309 last week for a family reunion. We had an absolute blast!!! Both of the units were exactly what we wanted. Unit 309 had granite countertops and beautiful floors - all topped off with a beautiful view of the ocean. Unit 507 had a large balcony that we loved... More
