We stayed in unit 1603, which is right by the tennis court and pool. It is near the back of the units overall, but still just a short walk to the beach. It is a two-story condo complex. So no loud kids running up and down hallways, no elevators ringing 24/7, quiet and relaxing.
The condo was very clean and the proximity to the beach, when lugging all the gear you need at the beach, was easy. This condo unit also has a deal with Captain Dave's Restaurant, right on the beach, to allow you to park there during the day if you would like. You have to move by 4pm, when they open for dinner.
Overall, we were very pleased with this condo and would stay here again. The only downsides were minimal, but included very dated interior design. The couches, wall decor, furniture, all of it was just so old. There were even cassette tape holders in the entertainment center! Wow! But, like I said, everything is clean as can be and who really cares about the decor when you're there for the ocean anyway?!
I would prefer a king bed in the master. This unit had a queen, which felt more like a full or a double. We had to check the double beds in the second bedroom to see if they were the same size. The master bed was a tiny bit bigger. This unit also had a pullout sofa bed, the provided linens for it. There were plenty of towels and dishes.
The last step on the staircase outside these units is wobbly and needs to be fixed. The toilet in the hallway bathroom runs funny after flushing for a few minutes, but works just fine. The gate securing the so-called private beach access is rusted out, unlocked and wide open for all. These things could use some attention.
The tennis court was gorgeous and the pool, although small, was really nice. They had fun music playing all day.
We loved being able to walk to eat at Captain Dave's just across the parking lot from the front of the condo units, and less than a mile to The Crab Trap. Would stay here again!
