“Average...looked like it could have been really nice at one time...needs help now”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Condo is worn...decor is mixed and cluttered. Furniture needs updating from when pictures were taken. Rug should have been replaced 5 years ago...not just steam cleaned. General maintenance is not being handled appropriately. It served the purpose, but we could have paid a lot less for a property in this condition. Washer and dryer was a plus, but known at booking. Dishwasher was over the top noisy. TVs were a plus for evening entertainment purposes, especially for the teens watching late night shows in there bedroom.

Condo complex...overall good, but dated too. 3 Elevators for 20 floors which serviced about 200+ units. Wait time for an elevator was over 15 minutes at some points during the day. Decor and maintenance was more like a condo in Daytona Beach in 1980.
Poolside was kept orderly by the attendant, including gum being removed from the pool side patio regularly-good to see. The gate code didn't prevent people from allowing others in and giving out the code to non-renters...at the very least it should be changed every quarter to prevent other people from using the amenities. Area for grilling was kept up well. Parking appeared to be monitored as well.

Totally enjoyed the view of the ocean, and the balcony, with dual access.

I could only recommend this unit if it is carefully and tactfully updated.
