“Fantastic Location”

You could not ask for a better location on SPI for a vacation rental. It is at the north end of the Island away from most of the hustle. The view from the balcony is nothing but beach and the access is so very easy. The condo is small but worked well for the two of us. It is well decorated in a "beach" theme. There were some flaws but the owner is aware of them and has them scheduled to be repaired. The complex shows some of the wear and tear one would expect from any place exposed to the wind, salt and sand for years, but it was clean and kept that way. The two pools were nice--heated for those of us who dislike cold water. We're considering buying a unit at this location-there was a lot of rennovation going on in the individual units.
Some hints-- Bring towels if you are staying more than one night. The ones the owner supplies are small and get pretty stale after the first day. Also if you are like me and prefer a soft mattress, bring a thick mattresss pad, the bed is firm. There is no dishwasher so either be prepared to do your dishes by hand or bring/buy disposables. This is a second floor with no elevator so if you have trouble with stairs opt out. I was worried about the bar just down the beach but at least while we were there the noise of the live music did not bother us. It might be different when things are busier.

The pet walking area was apparently below our balcony, but the owners were good about cleaning up and we have dogs so we enjoyed seeing folks walking theirs.

My only frustration is that I might have tried to negotiate a lower price per night if I had known that the motel down the street was available for $29.95. Consider asking for a better price if you come during the low season. We were there the week before Thanksgiving and met mostly locals the whole time.

Liked best: The location away from the busy end of the island with the beach view to boot.
Liked least: The general wear and tear of the complex.
