I travelled with my Granddaughter who was 8 yrs old. The unit was steps (and I mean steps to the beach). Sitting on the Lanai and watching the ocean while drinking your coffee, or Pina Colada was just wonderful. We had a one bdrm condo and it was well equipped with everything, bed was comfortable.
Any condo in this complex really are only steps to the beach.
The pool is not large, but the perfect size for the complex, with the ocean right there who needs the pool. The ocean was perfect for swimming for myself and my granddaughter. She had a great time boogie boarding. Note: sometimes the water can get a bit choppy, but didn't happen often.
Honestly we had the beach to ourselves. One other note: The ocean here is not crystal clear or a stunning blue if that's what you're looking for but it's only a short drive to find those though.
I would highly recommend a car or Jeep (that was great) to get around.
The diversity of occupants was wonderful, it consisted of young families, retired couples and honeymooners.
The grounds are well kept and again the common patio area was great. BBQ your steak or fish and sit oceanside, eat and watch the sunset.
My granddaughter had a terrific time, meeting a new set of friends each week.
I found it to be a very central area.
