We lucked into a stay at the Terrace through Expedia --- got nine days across from 4 Mile Beach for about $1,000. We were NOT on the beach facing side but in the neat little apartments out back. Here we had two bedrooms, washer dryer, full kitchen, tennis court, swimming pool -- the works in airy, air conditioned comfort. The back entrance is on Garrick so you can walk to downtown in two blocks. The front is on the beach, maybe 70 yards or so.
The place must be owned by Beaches next door (more plush, newer) because when we had trouble with the internet service (only at the Beaches lobby, not in your room), the manager at the Mowbray (even newer and nicer) next to Beaches very helpfully and competently fixed the whole issue.
The only downside is that the bed was very uncomforable. My wife and I awoke each day with stunning back aches. Now that I think of it, we should have moved to the second bedroom. By the eighth day, we had learned not sleep on our tummies -- that seemed to minimize the pains.
Still, this is the best location in Port D, I'd say, and, for the money, a super value. Highly recommended.
