“Amazing views--a great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

We stayed in units 508 and 406. Both extremely clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated space including your own balcony opening from living room and master bedroom. There is easy access to the beach. We will definitely go back.

The Beachcomber is pure heaven. If you enjoy beautiful warm tropical waters, an uncrowded beach, and watching beautiful sunsets as dolphins or manta rays splash out of the ocean, this is the place for you. I have been vacationing at the Beachcomber for 30 years (since I was 9 years old) and it gets better every year. I loved it as a child and I now enjoy it with my own children. The pool is magnificent and the beach is pristine. The rooms are all comfortable and very clean. The managers (Steve and Donna) are fabulous and they keep the place looking and running wonderfully. Waking up each morning to a cup of coffee and the gorgeous view from my balcony of the crystal waters and dolphin families swimming along the shallows…I look forward to that all year. Once you try it you will be hooked. You won’t want to leave and you will be ready to book your next vacation there.

We stayed at unit 506 The Beachcomber... what a great experience! Neatly decorated, super well maintained, clean and well-equiped... amazing views. We have absolutely no complaints about the apartment and/or the building... everything was just great, which helped ensure our great time. We are a family of 4 with 2 children ages 7 and 3. I thought by the end of the 7 days, we were going to be tired of the beach and sun... none of that...we couldn't get enough of the good time we were having. My children cried when we left asking to stay. We also enjoyed the fact that they have an area where beach chairs, toys, floaters, etc are kept for guests use, so we didn't have to worry about cleaning the sand to take them back to the apartment. The staff was super nice. We had a problem with our credit card, which we solved very easily once we knew about it, but they didn't give us a hard time nor they were hunting us down to ensure payment. They just left a note at the door, which we read once we came back from the beach and solve the problem first thing the next morning. The beach is very secluded with no public access... we'll be back next summer!

We had a beachfront/corner unit condo for 7 days and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our time at the wonderful pool or down at the beautiful beaches! Very close to restaurants, the grocery store, St. Armand's Circle and all the attractions that matter! The managers of the complex were extremely nice and helpful with anything we asked. We will stay there again! :)

Room Tip: Spacious, Clean, Comfortable

The Beachcomber is a wonderful place to stay. Our condo looked directly at the beach and was spacious for a family of four. It was incredibly clean and well kept. We would love to return. The condo managers were very accomodating and helpful.

We rented unit 302, and it was perfect for my parents, my husband, my son, and me. My 21 month old son thoroughly enjoyed playing at the beach and in the pool. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Plus, it was great to have a fully stocked kitchen, as going to restaurants with a toddler can be quite challenging. Thank you so much for such a wonderful week! We hope to be back soon!

Room Tip: Unit 302 was a great place!

We had a wonderful time staying at the Beachcomer. Our condo was beautifully decorated and most importantly, it was spotless. When we leave our home to spend a vacation we expect to stay in a place that is comparible to home meaning comfortable, well equip with necessities & most important cleanliness. This facillity had all that and more. We defintely hope to return.

Room Tip: Our condo faced the road which was OK with us as we are on the beach most of the time but they did h...
