Older property. Parking secured by guarded gate most of parking shaded as it is the first floor.Only one elevator for whole complex. If this is out it could be a real problem for some folks. it was out when we first got there but began working before we started to move our stuff up. We didn't use it again until we were leaving and repacking car. There are plenty stairwells. I saw lots of folks cleaning the common areas each morning. 3 grills and 6 or so picnic tables. The Snack bar was always busy and had a good selection. Pools right under the full ocean view rooms not sure how that would workout for those rooms.( we stayed in partial view). Which has a small view of water and sand and a clear view across to otherbuilding. There are two good size pools and a decent size kiddie pool between the dunes and the building. There is another pool on the second floor and has view of ocean also tennis courts and shuffle board area. All of these second floor areas have some shade in parts of morning and afternoon as they are between the two buildings. Older place but clean.Good basic place to stay.
Unit we rented was an efficiency. Paint reminded me of when I would paint my rental places in college, no taping lots of overlap and odd color choices. It was full of fake plants and knickknacks. Moved the big plants outside to balcony. Dryer vented back into room with a pair of panty hose over the end of output to minimize the dust and lint. Towel rack broken. Need towel rack at beach and the whole place has a rule of not hanging towels on balcony. Blender broken, but there was a bottom to another blender. Couldn't match them. Furniture a little beat. Everything tight for four (2 adults and 2 medium size kids). Balcony pretty useless as the air conditioner was vented on it and the chairs were broken as was table. It was almost a good deal. A little bit better unit and it would have been. It is the beach. Where do we want to be when we are at the beach? We want to be at the beach not in the room. the beach. Sand, salt and water are going to ruin everything. We will go back as it really was easy and pricing was decent . Beach was good, we left some our our items there over night and returned to them the next day with no issues. There is chair and umbrella service available as well. This is a good place. I will stay again. I will probably find a different owner and get a 1 bedroom for more space and privacy. Hopefully that will be the sweet spot.
