We stayed in a condo booked direct with the owner for just 2 nights to do some shopping before heading off to Clearwater for a beach holiday.
We arrived at 8.00am not expecting our condo to be ready - just wanted to drop off our cases so we had room in the boot for shopping! However, the lovely lady on reception said although our allocated condo wasn't ready she would check if there was another one ready - there was and she swapped us to that one so we could go straight it. Very good service.
We had a one bed condo on the 9th floor overlooking the lake - it was very nice and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen - I was most impressed that there was a real kettle!! There must be quite a few Brits who stay there!
It was spotlessly clean -only very minor issue was the arm chair in the living room was fraying so really now needs to be replaced - but I must stress that's just a very minor observation in what was a very nice stay.
I would say you need a car - although we didn't go to the parks I did notice there were only 2 buses in the morning and one back in the afternoon.
We wanted to go to the outlet malls and Vineland is literally 1 1/2 miles away -perfect.
I noticed someone earlier mentioned the tight car park and you do have to be careful negotiating the quite tight turns although the spaces themselves are huge like most US car parks.
Great stay and for the money I wouldn't hesitate to stay again
