Origin is an extremely nice condo and is brand new. The reviewer below must have been referring to a different property because this building was built new around 2007...I watched it going up on our trips:-) Anyway, we rented from the owner through VRBO and can't comment on the reservation/check-in folks, but the units are beautiful. There are a wide array of views ranging from zilch to awesome depending on location in the building, so keep this in mind when reserving and be sure you know what you are getting. We had a true 1BR (some are just efficiencies) and it was spacious and beautifully furnished with balcony overlooking the gulf. Everything is upscale and new. The pool was great and the gulf views from it are awesome too. Sharky's is right across the street and there is exclusive beach access next door to it. All of this being said, do keep in mind that this condo is not on the beach...it is across the street and there is no "cat-walk". We never had any trouble crossing as there is a crosswalk, but I can see where in the Summer getting across with kids and all their "stuff" could be a nuisance. There are no tall buildings across the street, so views on about the 4th floor and up are unobstructed (if unit is facing the gulf). If the price is right and you are sure what you are booking (VRBO, etc), this is certainly a good option to higher priced beachfront buildings with all of the new condo luxury and relatively easy access. Depending on rates being much lower than the true beachfront buildings, I would recommend.
