We stayed a week in unit 459. We stayed on the ground level of the building to the right of the pool (if facing the ocean). We could see beautiful landscape and some ocean from our deck. Staying on the ground floor is a trade off. You can walk straight out but if you stay up higher you get a better view of the ocean. The middle building definitely is better if you want to walk straight out to the pool. Wear shoes because the cobblestone sidewalks hurt your feet. The beach area in front of the resort is perfect. At low tide the beach is very big. We rode bikes on the beach and through the resort areas. My family loved that. Big trees with lots of Spanish Moss makes this a beautiful area. We also rode to the putt-putt courses and to the general store for ice cream.
Not much fishing to be had, much to the dismay of my husband. You couldn't keep your boat at the condo either.
We did see a number of sting rays, HUNDREDS of sand dollars and a few horse shoe crabs. On the last day we saw a box jelly fish.
The condo we stayed in was very nice and just right for a rental. Aside from maintenance noise at 8am (which the rental agency took care of for us) it was a good unit to rent.
There were lots of ants on the walkway from condos across the dunes to the beach and I don't know why. Don't stand still though because even though they look like 'picnic ants', they start biting as soon as you stop moving.
Rent bikes before you go...they bike company will deliver them to your unit and they'll be waiting for you when you get there. Very nice. They picked them up the last day too.
