First of all, please understand that I don't just give out 5 stars on my reviews. From what I saw from other rooms and places to rent, this place was in a class by itself. First of all, I would like to go over the items I found to be somewhat negative. 1. Internet is very, very, very slow. I was able to get faster internet on my phone. I was unable to watch a movie on netflix if that gives you an idea of how slow it was. But, at least it was free and I was able to check email and update facebook. Secondly, I had a room next to the stairwell and it was hard to sleep at times due to people walking down the stairs. I eventually slept on the couch and found it to be quite comfortable. Another drawback is there is no elevator, but this is only a 3 story building.
Now for the good. The place had about everything you could ask for. You really could almost bring your toiletries, clothes and groceries and you could move in. I found the people who rent this facility to be very friendly and easy to work with. The layout of the rooms were conducive to privacy for those traveling in larger groups. I traveled with another family and the rooms are located on opposite sides of the unit. So, neither one of us woke each other up when we got up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. They had modern tvs with a large range of channels to watch. Best of all, they have one of the best sunsets in all of Florida. Although the stretch of beach isn't that far from the pier, it was fairly deserted which I found to be nice.
Overall, I judge a place by whether I would stay there again, and I have no doubt that I would. It was like having two hotel rooms combined into one. There was ample parking and I couldn't find a thing that I would add to make the place better.
