This place is a gem! Super clean and amazing location right on the beach. We chose this place based on a recommendation from some friends. Here's what we experienced:
Property/grounds: The units were impeccably clean and well maintained. It's on older property and the units are relatively small, but management has done a nice job of keeping the place up. We were in a two bedroom unit and it had a small living room, full ktichen, TV, DVD/VCR and pretty much everything you need. The grounds were well maintained and there were plenty of chairs to take down to the beach. I enjoy cigars and was a little bummed to find that they had very strict smoking rules. They did have a little smoking area set up closer to the beach away from most units which was fine but I really would have enjoyed smoking a cigar on my patio without worrying about breaking the rules.
Amenities: The place has a really nice heated saltwater pool, plenty of beach and two gas grills which we used extensively throughout our 7 day stay. There were some public tennis courts across the street, but I never saw or used them. There's a Publix grocery store down the road a mile or so which was great. There isn't a restaurant on the propery, but there were plenty within a short drive. The free WiFi was great!
Service: Overall, the property mangers were attentive to our service needs. They have a towel service and they even print your boarding passes for you for your return flights. Management wasn't really keen on screaming kids at the pool and we had some issues with them actually yelling at our kids; however, after some dialogue, they apologized and let the kids be kids the rest of the trip. I have to give mgt. props for mailing back to us some items we accidentally left behind; that went a long way.
This place isn't the Ritz Carlton, but then again, they don't try to be. It's old Florida charm at its best. If you want a relaxing Florida vacation on the gulf with beautiful sunsets, this is the place for you. We really enjoyed our stay and you will too.
