We stayed in the Sunrise rental for 1 week.
Pros: We have stayed in several vacation rentals over the years and this was the cleanest rental we have ever stayed in. The staff are nice and the rental is in a good location to drive to several popular beaches and the PCC.
Cons: The parking situation was a pain and a bit dangerous at times. This is only true for our parking lot, and the fact that every night it had the maximum amount of cars in it. The road is very busy off of the lot and getting in and out was tricky, but doable. The beach infront of the rentals is rocky and you must walk to the sandy beach. The walk however took us about 60 seconds with a family of 5. Once you do get to the sandy beach, it is well protected from waves and fun for small children to play in. Our kids had fun wading through and looking at fish and crabs.
We enjoyed the hot tubs and used the laundry facility a few times. We haven't found too many rentals that have washers and dryers, so did not mind paying for laundry. I read a few reviews that had issues with privacy. It is true, you do have "neighbors" and they are close, however we found it quiet and comfortable. If your neighbor renters are walking by your rentals to go to the beach or the hot tub, they aren't standing infront of your window to peek on you. I wouldn't let it take away from the amazing views that you have! I think it was clear to see on the map when renting what the location was of all the rentals.
