We chose this property due to its location and the exchange value with RCI. While not "on the beach" it was across from Time Square, the pier and a short walk to the sand. It proved to be much more.
Check in was.... Let's say it turned out to be indicative of the place. The office was closed when we arrived, but a nosy (and especially helpful) condo owner soon discovered our keys. The room - actually a one bedroom condo - was perfect for our needs. Even the "mini-kitchen" had everything we wanted, including a four-burner stove and full-sized refrigerator. Set on the second floor it looked out over the Gulf. Check in the next morning was a breeze, even though a thick rule book came with our stay (all common sense).
Immediately next door, the 7/11 proved a godsend for quick cups of coffee or a morning yogurt. Sunrise and sunset on the beach? A two-minute walk. Dinner at the Beach Pierside? Met one of our kids and her husband there - three minute walk. Shopping? You name it, from the usual "beach bargains" to our favorite upscale clothing store. We had no issues with bugs, found the furnishings comfortable and the long-term residents were very friendly and helpful.
We had a restful, rejuvenating stay and would return again without hesitation.
