Small property on a quiet beach. Each condo is individually owned, so they are decorated differently, and rentals are managed by office staff. You can book by the night rather than the week, which makes it a great place for a weekend getaway. Office staff were VERY helpful and knowledgeable about the condos. It is directly on the ocean. Some units are not oceanfront however, so if that is important to you ask the office. Plenty of free parking, nice pool and bbq area between the building and the beach. Our condo was 301 and was well equipped with everything we needed - full kitchen with plenty of kitchenware, even had a blender (and the all-important bottle openers and corkscrew). This helped us hold down costs and calories. The condo felt spacious, the bedroom was a full separate room. This particular unit has had the living room glassed in for a full-wall view of the ocean. There is an oceanfront balcony from the bedroom that we really enjoyed. Comfortable king bed. I like the color scheme of blue/brown.
The only things I would change is that we could occasionally smell smoke from someone smoking on another unit's balcony, and I would bring paper towels as there were none provided. They've had a lot of beach erosion this year and at high tide there is very little beach left - but it is still there!
It was lovely to take a morning's stroll on the beach. We rode our bikes on nearby trails which was a big plus for us - sidewalk to trail was seamless. The trail is about 20 miles long, goes along Ocean Drive.
We did eat at the attached restaurant Saturday night and enjoyed the meal. The restaurant is oceanfront as well and they have a dining patio/bar overlooking the beach.
Overall, we had a great weekend getaway at the Island Beach Resort and would definitely return again. Clean, comfortable, safe, and a good value.
