This is a beautiful room with almost everything you could need for your stay! We loved the decor, the *extremely* comfy bed, the large TV, the gorgeous view from the balcony, and the fact that we were right on the beach!
Now to get to the details: the room had almost everything we could need: beach towels, soft bath towels, dish liquid, paper towels, and even a beach bag! The only thing that we anticipated that wasn't there, that would have made our stay better, would be a better "stocked kitchen." There is an oven and oven mitts, but no baking pans or cookie sheets. There is also no cutting board or chef's knives, so no way to cut watermelon or pineapple or cut up meat. If you need measuring cups/spoons, kitchen scissors, or an ice cream scoop, make sure to pack those too. We also had to run out and buy hand soap for the bathroom also. I mention this not to criticize, but because knowing would have been helpful for us, so hopefully it will help someone else.
Something else that could have made our stay more comfortable would be better window dressings on the sliding glass door to the balcony. The hanging blinds were missing a few slats and were very hard to adjust to a closed position, so there was a lot of light that would come in very early in the morning. We just hung up a towel to help as my wife has insomnia.
That said, we love this location, as there are NO hotels or condos or buildings of any kind to the left of the Fontainebleau Terrace for at least a couple miles! So especially this time of year, the beach is not crowded at all and there is a wide expanse of beach with hardly any people. You can walk down the beach and put your stuff down and you feel like you are on an island of paradise without kids yelling, loud radios, etc. Very peaceful!
Patty and Mike were very helpful and responsive and we enjoyed staying at their condo so much we hope to book this very room again next year!
Great deal for an oceanfront view! The owner met us at the unit, and the unit was perfect! Everything was in NEW condition...even the towels! The colors in the room were well chosen, the balcony high chairs were great and the beach view is unobstructed and peaceful! The other reviews I read helped me choose this condo and they are 100% accurate. This was a anniversary trip for my wife and I..and she couldn't believe I found this nice of a condo with oceanview for the price. (props to me for searching and props to the owner for not overcharging)
The only complaint, for those that don't believe in perfect reviews, would be the new towels leave lent on you after showering because they are that new!

There are only a few rooms that have the balcony over the ocean. But the place was very family friendly. I felt completely safe with my kids coming and going as they pleased (which means a lot to me). The rooms are a little small (about the size of a hotel room) but we had a wonderful time!
We loved this place! Everything was great,and our room with a beautiful view of the ocean made it even better!! Mike was helpful and understanding and made our trip extra special by going out of his way to see if we would bring my two nieces as well my family ..which we could! 2 Dumps up :) only 1 complaint a little hot in the room but it did cool down at night.. Other then that GREAT STAY!! We will definitely come back!!
Unit 317. Had apribate beach front balcony. For the price this place was amazing. They do not over exaggerate on the olympic size pool that goes to 8ft deep that nobody hardly uses! We had it basically to ourselves. Laundry was $2.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry which the loads were huge! 1 downside is if you have a long stay they do not change bathroom rugs and after the 3rd day they stink. Plus you do not get frsh towels. But you dont have to pay outrageous cleaning fees which is hard to find. Sitting at the breakfast table you feel like you are literally on the water. Closest you could ever get to the beach. We will definitely be comimg back and renting from this renter! The owner of this unit met us there and explained everything to us. Which is great and personable! Plenty of private parking! Elevators worked great and were fast. Pool was NOT heated but we dont care. Had plenty of showers to wash off sand bedore coming back to condo. Bed was so comfortable and roomy! No extra blanket for pull out soda but im sure if we asked we would have gotten one. Plus the full time owners who stay in their units were very friendly. Greeted us every time we saw them. Dont let the exterior or previous reviews steer you away. This place is awesome. No bugs no leaks no issues at all.
