The management and cleaning staff were great; we checked in very early and saw others check in as early as 9 a.m. It is run like a hotel with fresh towels and beds made daily, also daily coffee to brew yourself, dish and laundry soap (this unit has a washer/dryer in it; there is another on site for all to use, I think.) We left a cell phone and they called within an hour of our departure to see how we wanted to have it sent to us. It arrived promptly.
The only drawback to this place is the rooms are not set up like a home; the front door opens right into the bedroom (with a double bed; would love a queen), then comes the den and then the beautiful living room/kitchen which is right on the pool with a nice patio, looking out to the Gulf of Mexico. The middle room, they call it a den, has a sleeper sofa but you have to walk through it to get to the bedroom from the living room. The overhead fans in each room were great to keep the kids asleep when parents were up early. Two bathrooms were nice, but no storage space in them at all.
We will be back as the location, value and staff are excellent.
