For the price plus location, this was a great condo! We rented it for the week and my family and my wife’s family stayed here and it was perfect. I give the combo clarification because of course, I would have loved a 5 star, all the amenities type of place, but I didn’t pay for that now did I?
Here is a probably mid-70’s to early 80’s constructed establishment with no view of the ocean, but a mere was across the street, through a nice paved path straight to a very quiet, clean, nice beach. I have no complaints.
The unit, which must be about 1500 sq ft was gigantic. It has 3 real bedrooms (King, queen and two fulls(?)), 3 full baths, full kitchen (including utensils and plates, etc. and even a blender!), dining area, living area, a porch facing the pool, two upstairs patios (one facing the pool) and a weird middle, inner outside area with a table and chairs we never used. Lots of closet space and the upstairs had two of the bedrooms. The TV was a big flat screen with the ability for external connections.
Everything worked in the kitchen and the water pressure was great. They could use an upgrade to some Posi-temp to avoid scalding by other fixtures being turned on throughout the house, but as a child of the 80’s I recognize the minor pre-warning and knew to jump to the side.
The condo was nice and quiet, and the pool is a really good size and was always not crowded. They have two gas grills by the pool, with utensils ready for anyone to use them if they want. The front has towels, games and information for local attractions. For us, the pool and the beach were all we needed. Restaurants, grocery, liquor, donuts, shopping (real shopping, not just “beach” type shopping) were all very close. The pool was always clean, not too hot or cold and very nice. No problem getting a chair, table or whatever you wanted. There was WiFi, but I must admit, while it said I connected and it said it accepted the password, I never got it to work on any of my electronics, so might not be a bad idea to have a backup plan, just in case.
The AC worked adequately and really it was more the beating down of the sun which caused for some hot spots at certain times throughout the condo, but no big deal. The condo and surrounding areas were very well maintained and staffed and I saw absolutely no problems. No bugs in the house although I am sure there is a season where there are more that a beach setting just makes inevitable, but we saw none. The other patrons included families with small kids and older folk but no noise or parting disturbed any of us.
The beach across the street is “private” and it lived up to its name. Lots of seaweed the first day, but they eventually through the week bull dozed it aside making for really nice sand and water. The condo doesn’t really “rent” anything, so you will need to go about a mile and a half south to a little area that has some restaurants, shops and a rental place. I don’t think they had motorized things, but they had the rest and had a few restaurants with some water view.
All in all, I wouldn’t go crazy paying much an arm and a leg for the place, but I think they know their market and for its price, this was really a great place to be. I really appreciate the management and the establishment they have here.
All rooms face the pool, but some face the main street and others face the back, residential street...
