Great Place

5 of 5

Overall great place and location on the beach. There was some construction going on which we were warned about but they were considerate and didn’t start too early. I would stay here again!

Family vacation

4 of 5

The stay was good. The unit is a little outdated. The sliding door to the balcony did not shut properly, the dryer did not dry clothes well. The condo association needs to do something about the big step down going down on the beach, maybe some sort of ramp or something. With older adults and smaller children it was a hard area to get down and up on. All in all the area is great, just a few things.
