First the Good. It is not a high rise condo.....which is VERY rare in PCBeach. The property is very quaint with the condo's built in a big "U" shape.....inside the "U" is a lake, grassy area, tennis courts, clubhouse and pool. The grounds are taken care of fairly well. It is only 3 floors so there are NO elevators....big plus. If you make reservations early enough, you can get one of the limited beach front condos....which have great views of the beach....(except for the one bedroom beachfronts that are behind the sea wall....so you cant see the ocean at all from these first floor units.....ALL the one bedrooms on the beach make up the bottom floor, so don't expect a view from these condos) It is in a great location. Walking distance to Spinnaker and La Vela....within a mile of Pineapple Willies. The big Walmart is very close, there is a golf course practically across the street. Lots of good restaurants in the vicinity.
Now for the bad. The owners don't seem to be interested in updating the condos. Many are in some form of disrepair. Old doors that don't lock easily, rusting fridges, cracked microwaves, no wi-fi, televisions that don't work, faucets that have cold/hot water not matching what's on the faucet (eg...cold comes out when you have it set for hot), very limited pots and pans. They seem to have an issue with lots of stray cats and some of the rooms smell like cat spraying has been going on.....not pleasant.
It is really a shame that these condo's are not better taken care of because it could really be a special place.
