Condo was average at best in comparison to others we have stayed at for a summer vacation. Unlike previous years we were forced to book later than we would've like due to uncertainty around our daughters college schedules. We read many of the reviews and "took our chances" on this place. The unit and complex were clean however were in need of some decorating updates and general repair... My only real complaints were that connecting to their free WI Fi was non existent. I asked the lobby clerk and she said reception was best towards the balcony end of each unit...I connected briefly only once in our four day stay. My second complaint was something we never expected and did not see anything mentioned in any of the reviews. I brought a pop up tent as a way of saving on daily beach chair rentals. We were surprised to find that many of the properties have the chair umbrella rentals on "the front line " extending from property line east all the way to property line west. Anyone else not renting chairs are left looking at the backs of those who do...quite clever I guess but totally wrong in my mind. Early bird gets the worm to set up behind on the ends with hopes of a bit of beach view provided the neighboring properties are doing the same thing. One last thing to be aware of...the pop up tents have to be taken completely down at sunset - not certain if this was a property mgmt rule or city ordinance. Units had adequate space aside of very small bedrooms. Sleeper sofa was larger than bed in second bedroom.
