This vacation included many firsts: first time staying in a condo, first vacation with my parents, my family and my brother's family and first "beach" vacation. I enjoyed the property so much I really didn't so much as want to leave for dinner. Between the pools, lazy river and breezy balcony with a great view, this property was like paradise. Even though this property is a short drive to the beach, I wasn't even tempted to visit the beach, lest I miss out on some time at the condo or pool. I foolishly got a very minor sunburn on my first day at the pool, but what I so fabulous about this property is not only is there an indoor pool, but around 4:30 pm the sun went behind the buildings, and the outside pool / lazy river area was in the shade...I couldn't have imagined it any better. The condo itself was likewise fabulous. Well decorated with every amenity I could want, comfortable beds, great showers, easy access to vehicles, garage parking on the same level as you condo, easy unloading with luggage carts, available elevators for easy access to and from the pool area, I could go on and on. I've stayed at hotel properties around the U.S. and I must admit that this condo impressed me. We were already talking about going back on the first evening of our stay. The condo was clean, well organized and just generally felt immediately like home. I can't say enough nice things about the unit or the property.
