We stayed in unit 587 at the Boardwalk in July of 2013. It is a corner condo with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was clean, beautifully decorated with a beach theme, and a very pleasant place to stay. Air conditioner worked great. The roomy balcony has a fine view of the pool, boardwalk to the sand, and the beach. The master bedroom has a large tv on the wall. The bedding is comfortable and has a shell design on it. The master bathroom is smallish but adequate with a large, glass-enclosed shower with a seat. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and large tv. Bedroom 3 has two twin beds and a large tv and dvd player. All bedrooms had ceiling fans.
We have 2 teen boys and 1 teen girl. This setup worked great. The 2 boys shared the room with the twin beds. They all shared the second bathroom. We could sit on the balcony and easily keep an eye on them while they were on the beach and at the pool.
The condo was equipped with nice towels. It has a front loading washer and dryer. There were paper towels, toilet tissue, kleenex, starter supply of coffee, and enough dishwasher soap for 2 washes. The kitchen had everything you might need in the way of plates, glasses, silverware, cookware, and so on. It had a microwave, dishwasher, coffee pot, etc.
A definite plus is the Sea and Suds restaurant right behind the building on the beach. You can just walk over to it. We went in directly from the beach to eat lunch, a very good and reasonably priced hamburger and fries. Guys have to wear a shirt and girls have to wear a cover up. The last night we ate dinner here, excellent fried shrimp, and the waitress made the homemade cocktail sauce right at the table.
As far as the Boardwalk building itself, it is nothing special but it is adequate. One basic swimming pool right behind the building. Not much parking right in front of the building but plenty more directly across the street. It is conveniently located. There is a waffle house and a souvenir store in easy walking distance. It is just down the street from The Hangout. The Shrimp Basket and The Steamer, both excellent restaurants, are a very short drive.
I can't comment on other units at this building, but highly recommend unit 587 at The Boardwalk.
