WOW….what a great vacation at a great price! Our family was looking for a place to enjoy the beautiful beaches and found it at Holiday Surf. We stayed in Unit 117, and the arrangement worked perfectly. Our car with luggage and groceries was ten steps out our front door while the sandy white beach was 20 steps out our back door. The first floor was definitely a wise decision and worth the few extra bucks.
Like many of the other reviewers, we found the beaches to be clean and safe. In fact, they were so safe that we were completely comfortable making the 20 minute walk along the shore to the jetties at midnight.
The building seemed like it was one of the earlier models in the area for two reasons. First, it was stucco (which just reminds me of “early Florida”), but second, it was so close to the beach. In talking with one of the other guests that had been visiting the area for years, he said that it was built before zoning required condos to be set further back from the water.
The property was nicely maintained with no-frills amenities. We were able to exchange our towels three times during the week, use the tennis equipment, and checkout free DVD’s. The beach umbrella and chairs were free too. We chose Unit 117 based on the website photos. It was clean, comfortable and well-equipped…actually even better than what we saw in the photos.
We are already looking forward to our next vacation!
