When I 1st saw this building I was afraid of what was on the inside. But it was amazing. It was sparkling clean and right on the beach. Had a beach view from balcony. Was so surprised. Nice quiet place on the beach! Would stay here again!

Very nice older condo. Great view. Clean
Leigh ann b. Jul 2020
This condo is decorated cute. It is close to everything you would want to do including the beach. I have a few complaints that might be different given the circumstances. The parking is horrible. I have a Ford Explorer and I found it extremely tight to park my car every time I left or entered the condo.
The balcony is NOT private. An older couple stayed in Condo next to us and decided to spend the majority of their vacay drunk and cursing on their balcony. They were loud and I could never sit and enjoy the view or let my 8 year old on our balcony. There were 3 lightbulbs out in the condo. The elevator and surrounding area near the ground floor reeked of urine the entire 5 days.
It is a nice condo. The actual apartment was clean and overall a good place to stay. Definitely overpriced for what we experienced.

Our family enjoyed our stay here. Convenient beach access. The unit was nice and clean. Only issue was the master bath needs some work compared to other similar units we have booked and stayed at in this same building.

Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.

Nice condo in good location. For the money we paid I feel we should have been given more toilet paper.
