We loved our stay at Cara Mar. The location was wonderful. While the space is small, it is put together very nicely and had everything we needed. We would definitely book again.

While the condo appeared cleaner and more updated in the online photos themselves (sand hadn't been emptied from the small vacuum and poured out onto the floor, used kleenex was found underneath the double bed, the indoor floor mat was covered in sand and most surfaces were dusty upon arrival, as well as the coffee maker being filthy), all in all it was a nice stay. Bright, quaint, very beachy and nautical in decor, I felt whisked away from responsibility and worry. The balcony had an excellent oceanfront view of the shoreline and sea. Sitting out there at night, listening to the waves crash, viewing the moon through the telescope provided, and watching the beach sweepers drive across to rake the sand, was very relaxing. Lights, television, water faucets, outlets and coffeemaker all worked. The building felt private and secluded, much to our liking, and the condo's pathway leading to the outdoor shower and beach was a plus. We felt safe in a convenient location. In the midst of the pandemic, condo personnel was obviously doing their best to meet demands. We'd stay again.

This place is great. The extremely well planned use of space and storage, makes it feel bigger than it is. We had no trouble finding spots to keep all of our things organized. The decor is all so beachy and bright and cute. The kitchen had everything we needed, the beds are comfortable, the tv is fully loaded with all the streaming services you could want, and the oceanfront view is gorgeous and unobstructed. Another nice perk is that this unit is very close to the elevator. We had a great time this week and can’t wait to stay here again!

We have a wonderful time here, just a few steps to the beach very convenient .
Very comfortable beds.

I had to sweep the floor when we arrived due to how much sand/dirt was on it.
The dresser located in the closet is missing the bottom of the first drawer and the bottom is not attached to the second drawer. All the pull down spaces to store things were dirty. We ended up keeping our clothes in our suitcases.
There were coffee grinds In the coffee filter.
It was not very enjoyable to have to clean before we could begin to enjoy our vacation.
On the plus side, the balcony view is amazing, beds are comfortable and they built a really nice wash off station outside.
Manager response:

What an amazing view of the ocean!! Loved how well every inch of the space in the condo was functional and also the beach themed decore! Go eat at Liquid Assets and get the scallop risotto. Renting this place was easy, as was the entire process of check in and check out. Would rent again!

We stayed for a few days, we are a family of 4 whit 2 kids under 8. We were very happy staying there.
Great view and few steps to the beach, closes to restaurants. The house is small but cozy and was perfect for us, very well equipped, the beds very comfortable and most important: well cleaned.
Definitely we are going to came back.

My wife and 2 young children (3 and 1 yr old) spent a wonderful week at the beach in this condo. I was afraid it would be too cramped for our little explorers, but the condo proved spacious enough for our needs. There were lots of supplies tidily stashed away in hidden pull out shelves and closets. My daughter especially loved the pull down bed, actually it was so comfy that we ended up sleeping in basically every day. The decor is perfectly beachy and gives a nice vacation vibe. The kitchen was well stocked so that we could prep our meals since we couldn't really go out to eat with COVID-19 restrictions. The short walk to the beach was perfect for our 3 year old's little legs. The sunrise/sunset ocean views were picture perfect and we spent a lot of time on the balcony listening to the waves and enjoying the scenery. There were board games, the tv had netflix/hulu/youtube, etc. the AC was powerful, so we were comfortable and entertained.
Hoping to book this place again! :)

The view, location, and decor were the best part of the trip. Beds were extremely comfortable and plenty of pillows to be found. Perfect place for a short getaway!!!

The attention to detail, the multiple amenities and the bright walls will make you love this place. This was our first time staying at a place on the beach that was not a hotel. We loved the views from the balcony and ate breakfast each morning while taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean.

Our only negative comments were as follows
1. The cleaning company that came before hand was not great. Upon entering there was so much sand still on the floors that you could hear it under our feet. While we realize we were oceanfront we found this odd. At this point we started looking at other things for cleanliness and found food crumbs on the ground and dirt/residue on the counter tops and the tv stand. There was also sand on the futon. With everything with COVID we had gotten messages that the condo was going to be cleaned thoroughly which was why we couldn’t check in until 4. Well it was definitely not cleaned enough. We did bring Clorox wipes and wiped down the counters and all handles in the condo. The wipes showed so much dirt on them. We then found the vacuum and did all of the floors and the canister was filled with dirt and sand. It just was not an ideal way to start our vacation.

2. The beds. We used the bed closest to the balcony doors. We wanted to be able to hear the waves from the ocean at night. The beds are supportive but really hard. We also couldn’t leave the door open because when we got there the screen was literally popped out and just leaning against the balcony doors. We got it back on the track but it kept a falling out.

3. I don’t remember reading to bring our own shower towels but we did because of COVID. Well it was a good thing we did because there were only two towels there for an entire week for two people. We also had to rewash towels because of this and the laundry area is downstairs and costs $1.50 for a wash and a $1.00 to dry. Just things I wish I would have known ahead of time (maybe I missed them in looking over descriptions).

All in all we had a great trip despite restrictions still at restaurants and having to wear masks. The Starbucks across the street had the friendliest workers and the private path that leads to the beach is beautiful.

Just and FYI: no cable in the place but did have great WiFi
The pool was closed due to COVID.
Manager response:
Hi, Elizabeth! We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to see the effects of COVID-19 impacted so many aspects of your stay. We have been experiencing a shortage of towels during this time and can only supply two towel sets at a time, though we can likely bring out more during a reservation at our guests' request. We did have to contract our cleaning due to being short-staffed during COVID-19, but we are no longer using them. The balcony screen has been put back up. Thank you for staying with us!

The owners really put a lot of work into managing the space effectively. It had 2 full sized Murphy beds and a twin futon. During the day we had plenty of space to move and stretch. It was completely stocked with everything noted on the site and more. It is located on the second floor with a direct view of the ocean.... I hope to return soon and highly recommend!
