We stayed in one of the three bedroom units that looks over the water, pool and (yes) the street/water. We have a child who loved to be able to watch the pool, and talk about it all day. Later we would go down to the pool. Not much Marco polo, which was nice, and the pool was HEATED!! That was very nice, especially since our nice days here in the NW can be overcast or cooler.
The unit had three bedrooms, and three full bathrooms. There was maid service everyday ($5 per day fee), which kept the clean towels coming. The living room was open to the kitchen which gave it a "great room" feel, this was nice, because you felt like you were with your guests more of the time. The bedrooms were nice, had to maneuver the furniture to accommodate a playpen for the youngest of our group. It was do-able though, easiest in the master suite. The beds were actually comfortable, which seems to be a rarity in condos these days. I think it was because the building was so new.
The beach is mostly muddy sand, so bring your shoes that you don't mind getting dirty. Check the shellfish rules and regs, and you could have fresh seafood! http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishcorn.htm
We did overlook the street, but the traffic only goes 25mph, so there was nothing really to bad about that. The only major sounds were at night, the bars nearby.
Avoid the Blue Fish across the street, I heard from the locals that it wasn't good.
This place, the newness and niceness put the WM resort next door to shame. It was worth the stay and we are planning to go there again.
