"This is what heaven feels like"
July 1, 2014
We stayed in beachfront manor and it was gorgeous. We felt so relaxed & at home as soon as we walked in. Great updates, granite throughout. Included everything you could possibly need. I just suggest you bring a hairdryer and a bag of tide washer pods and fabric softener. They provided 2 washes worth of washer & dishwasher cleaner. However, I was washing swim suits & towels regularly. We stayed in unit 404, which did not include the ammenities card but we didn't find a benefit for it? The tiki bar took CC's but not cash. You have access to several pools, fitness facilities, mini-golf and tennis on property. Great covered parking offered. It did not seem like a very long walk to our room from our car. It was also convenient to walk down to the beach. They offer showers and several sprayers to clean off with in between the beach and pool/condo. Loved the keyless entry to everything. Our balcony was bigger than our living area with plenty of comfortable seating and gorgeous view of the marsh and the ocean. It takes ~30-45 min to travel the 12 miles to the marina because traffic is really bad. So if you plan a pirate cruise, parasailing, or boat rental leave early. If you have professional pics done I would suggest 6:30pm or later? It is very humid in the mornings. We ate one day at the poolside tiki bar. The covered tables poolside was nice but the food was very expensive and has an automatic gratuity of 19% added. For 2 adults and 2 small children our tab was over $60 without alcohol. We just had sandwiches and the kids had hot dogs. I recommend buying food & drinks at the walmart nearby because most good we ate around town wasn't very good and was very expensive. This is why condo's are perfect! Ours had one room with twin beds for our boys and a king bed in the other. It had 2 baths, which was helpful. One had a tub and one had a large walk in shower. It was so quiet and peaceful at night. I like a little noise so I turned on the bathroom fan and played music. Our condo had surround sound and a TV/DVD player in all 3 rooms. It even had board games and books to read. All appliances were updated and worked great! Do be prepared to check out by 10am. The housekeeping arrives on the dot to prepare for the next guest. Also, our suite included an umbrella and 2 chairs for the beach but the umbrella was a little flimsy so we bought a really large nice one that tilts in town for $22. We just really enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer!
