We rented unit #4325 in the Windswept units. It was in the perfect location - right on the ocean, just a short boardwalk between us and the beach and right across the road from the pool complex. We could not have hoped for a better spot for a spontaneous long weekend get away.
We arrived after dark and checked in quickly and received the key cards for our unit. A couple of turns later we were unloaded our belongings into a lovely two bedroom, two bathroom unit. The kitchen and bathrooms were all updated with fresh granite and tile. The master bedroom has a king size bed, the second bedroom has two twin beds. The kitchen had everything we needed and we really appreciated having a large refrigerator to stock with cold drinks and sandwiches for the beach.
The ocean side patio has a high top table, perfect for watching the sunrise or enjoying a cold drink at dusk.
The unit has 3 large flat screen televisions, ample seating, and all of the comforts of home. We enjoyed staying at this unit very much. Our only caveats: that there is no door between the master bedroom and the master bathroom. Not something this long time married couple enjoyed - but probably not a big deal for most others. The master bedroom head board squeaks - we tried WD40, but that did not take care of the problem - must need some tightening with a wrench. Check out is 10:30 AM, we were surprised to have Housekeeping knocking on our door just after 9:00 AM. We were up and about, but could easily have been walked in on at that hour of the morning.
We enjoyed our stay very much. We'll be sure to return for future visits. We had wonderful meals at the Ryder Cup - out on the porch at sunset was absolutely beautiful. We also had wonderful barbecue at Osprey Point Cherrywood BBQ & Ale House. The golf courses looked stunning - can't wait to come back and try them out.
