“Spring break”

Excellent stay. Great for children. Go-karts and putt-putt within walking distance. Spacious. The sound of the waves crashing is peaceful. Beautiful ocean view.

We are so pleased to know that you truly enjoyed Ocean Grove 701. It is nice to be a little further west on the seawall where it tends to be slightly quieter. I do apologize for the parking situation. All the condo's are only allowed 2 parking spots according to the Ocean Grove HOA rules. We hope to see you again real soon.

Reviewed November 27, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The view is all it has going for it. They lied about the hot tub, yep it doesn't have one. Lied about the heated pool, doesn't have that either. Old food was left in fridge from previous renter. The beds were horrible. I could literally feel the spring digging into my back. The jet tub was dirty and disgusting. When I turned it on it shot hair balls and black chunks out into my bath water, we'll what little water I had because the bath plug is so corroded the water just drained out. Don't even get me started on the a/c. The temp outside was not hot and it had a hard time keeping it 70 at night. Stayed about 74. Then there is the sliding glass door that would not close all the way. The tv only had a few channels that were available.Good thing we didn't stay at the condo much the week that we were there. Could have stayed at a nicer place for a lot less.

Thank you for taking the time to review. Ryson appreciates the input of our guests, in this case the guest invited others to the property. This property only allows 2 cars per unit, so we suggested the guests park on the Seawall. We are required to follow the rules of the condominium association. I am forwarding the concerns about the television and the refrigerator to the operations department.
