“Very Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stayed at this condo August 18 - 25, 2012. The staff at the front desk was very courteous and had our check-in papers waiting for us. Our unit was on the 5th floor, first impression was that the hallway needed refurbishing with new paint and carpeting and we immediately wondered what our room would look like. The room was absolutely beautiful and very clean. The kitchen was updated with granite countertops, a very spacious bedroom, dining area and living room. Flat screen t.v.s in the bedroom and living room. We had a corner unit with a wonderful view of the beach and ocean from our balcony and a view of the pool from our living room window.

There is a laundry room which could also use some TLC, but the machines were clean.

There were some down sides to our stay. Our next door neighbors were quite foul mouthed and the walls between our bedroom and their unit were thin. We could hear their young children running around the room and especially when they had yelling and crying episodes. But, you can't pick your neighbors.

Also had an incident with a very rude member of the housekeeping staff (did not want to share the elevator and told us so) and had to report her to the management.

The pool area was well maintained and the beach was spotless. The tiki bar offered food and drink and there is a restaurant on site. The parking lot was quite small and spaces were in high demand as it also served as a parking lot for the restaurant. Since we stayed in the off season, I would think that parking would be a matter of concern in the winter months.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely stay here again, but it sure would be nice to know who our neighbors would be in advance..

Stayed the weekend of August 10-12 2012..Checked in Friday evening,front desk was very helpfull and polite.Condo 613 was very nice with updated kitchen and bathroom and great view of the ocean and entire complex.Keep in mind the complex is not brand new but what you get for the price is a very nice place to enjoy a vacation.Tiki bar was cool,had breakfast there also Sunday morning.Lots of families and children enjoying the pool and ocean,this property is right on the sand.There is all ages here and saw people from many different places and countries.People seemed happy and very talkative easy to make new friends.This is a time share,but I just rented,there are no sales tours or any pressure of that nature.Overall great place.

We were in room 622 and it was awesome! Very nice, updated, great view of pool and beach! Two large balconies. I would definitely go back! Kitchen had granite and stainless steele appliances! We had plenty of towels (bath and beach). Linens were very clean. Entertainment was ok... it was fun to listen to live music from the balcony down by the pool. Bathrooms were in good shape. We didn't eat at the restaurants as we went to the grocery store and bought groceries for the week.

Room Tip: We were close to elevator but it wasn't loud or anything. It looked like most of the rooms had...

Great beach and easy location. Older building but reasonably maintained. Our 2 bedroom was good size and the view of the ocean was nice. Great pool on the edge of the sand and food/drinks available onsite

My family has owned a timeshare unit at LHC for about 20 yrs, so my husband has been going there since he was a child. Very family friendly, many owners have held the same week for years, so you actually get to know your neighbors. About 5 yrs ago, to keep the family tradition going strong, we purchased a small unit ourselves. Could not be happier :) The staff knows us by name (even though we are only there 2 weeks out of the year). We love long walks on the beach down to the Lighthouse. The seawall between the intercoastal and the ocean is a great place to stop and look for fish. This year we saw a manatee! Last year a puffer fish and a ray. Awesome! The beaches are well maintained. We have rented from Life's a Beach over the years, we have done the banana boat, been parasailing, rented jet skis - all amazing. And the people are so friendly. We watched the sun rise and a young woman on the beach offered to take our photo together (always stinks when there are only two of you, you can't be in the photo together), she emailed us the photos, wonderful memories. We swim in the pool for hours. It’s great. Very large pool with varying depths so small children able to stand and swim in the shallows, while the older crowd can slip away to the other side of the pool and relax. Huge hot tub, you could fit about 20 people in there if you tried. Tiki bar - great food, great drinks and entertainment. I have never been on a cruise, but I imagine that is what it's like. Crooners like Sinatra, Bennett, playing in the background. There is also a new restaurant. We went there for Father's Day and had the buffet. Very good value for nice meal and a drink. We have stayed in several rooms throughout the years and the views are always breathtaking. I usually sit out on the balcony late into the evening and listen to the ocean and the palm tree fronds swaying in the breeze. I love LHC and look forward to bringing my own children there someday. The idea of sharing this amazing place with them, as my husband's folks have done with him and then with me, makes me smile when I think about it. Wonderful memories :)

Room Tip: 503, 405, 306, 815 - we have stayed in each of these rooms and loved them. Excellent views, and gre...

Two years in a row with no elevator. The one elevator only goes to the 7th floor which makes it tough when you are on the 8th floor. We had to walk around the building every time we left the room. Moving out was loads of fun. If you don't like smoke, you won't like this place at all. Decent, crowded pool. Beach is nice. Entertainment every night is fun for the older crowd.

Lots of people said to ask for a Ocean room. I did and the front desk attendant was rude and told me it was not his problem as well as lied several times. I got a ground floor room with no view, the room I was assigned smelled like mold, I went down to complain and the maintenance guy. Said it was a new room and that he could not do anything (in a very rude manner). One of the showers had mold in it (they just painted over the old mold. The wall started molding more while I was there if you do stay here make sure to but lots of air fresheners. The ceiling tile was decayed by the air unit which I am guessing it the source of the mold smell. Heaven forbid they do repairs right. The light did not work in one of my rooms as well. The only good things about the room were the kitchen and the furniture. The private beach on the other hand was very nice loved it nice clear water and very clean sand. The pool was nice and so was the bar. If you are looking for a nice beach and plan to spend a lot of time on it then go here. If you are looking for a nice room, good staff and customer service look elsewhere.
