We wanted a casual beach experience with shops and restaurants in walking distance. We wanted clean, on beach, one story so walking out door and not lugging things down an elevator... we would have paid lots more had a property existed that was of higher quality than this one.
Turned out the Sea Aire totally met our expections. The beach out front is perfect, the location perfect, the manager/owner perfect. We were given a map of area restaurants and directed to Bilt Surf & Bike shop 1/2 block away when we asked about getting surfing lessons. The room (#9) was a corner beach front room that had two double beds, a small kitchenette, and everything was clean & fine. The beds weren't great but not too bad. We got extra pillows as there were 4 in the room and we needed a few extra. We had just spent 4 nights at the Grand Floridian at DisneyWorld, so we had set our expectations correctly for the shift from that type of property to this type.
There's no pool or hot tub on property, however a nice grassy area, grills, covered area with picnic tables and a hop skip and jump to the ocean. The beach is sandy and just a few small shells on it.
We loved some of the nearby restaurants and coffee shops, as well as Bilt's. We also went to Publix and bought a few snacks and drinks.
There was a large family reunion going on here while we were there. It's the perfect spot for it! These folks had probably 10 or more rooms and were having a great time with lawn games, music, grilling, kicking the soccer ball around and being together. Ideal location for it.
We were concerned when making the reservation thinking we needed to be closer to the Pier area of town. Turns out we really liked this area a lot and were glad we were there.
