We were in an ocean front unit in the "E" building. Perfect spot right on the beach! We had a screened back porch which was nice. It was covered, so if we had beach stuff out there and it rained, it did not get wet. We enjoyed beautiful mornings and sunsets in the evenings from the screened porch. Our unit was clean and had everything we needed. We had one minor maintenance issue during our stay and the staff took care of it immediately which we appreciated. Even the courtyards and walkways on the grounds were beautiful...lots of gorgeous fragrant flowers. I really enjoyed talking to Mike, the guy who sets up umbrellas in the morning. He's great! My family and I are so relaxed from our vacation at Casa Del Mar, that we've been home for 2 days now and still feel like our heads are in the clouds....or still on the beach. This is mostly a residential area, so you have to drive a little if you want lots of shopping. But there are some good restaurants close by...Lazy Lobster and Ciao Italia. We ate at both of these places and were pleased. The photos of our condo on the website were exactly what we got so check those out. My kids are already asking to go back. We will go back for sure!! Wish we could go tomorrow! Every unit here has something special..views of gorgeous fragrant flowers, the beautiful pool or the sparkling blue water of the Gulf...so you can't go wrong with any of the units really. Thanks Casa Del Mar for a fantastic vacation!
