Other than the rodent it was a wonderful accommodation. Great kitchen facilities, do need a cutting board and a spatula. Easy parking, great view. chairs and umbrella provide for lounging on the beach only 110 steps away.

The location is amazing along with the views. Our particular unit was dated, had a very uncomfortable bed and a non working dishwasher. Had stayed previously and had much better units. You can't beat the location though.

No. This is a condo complex. The pool is nice, especially for a quick dip to get rid of the sand after being on one of the two great beaches within walking distance. But no food or drink services unless you have your kids... More
