A nice stay after a rough start.
When we got to the condo on July 7, the outside temperature was in the mid-90s. The inside temperature was in the mid 80s! The central A/C had gone out! I contacted the owner and she said she would call and try to get someone to come and check on it ASAP on Friday morning. So we had to spend a pretty hot night in the condo. I personally slept okay with the windows open. It was tolerable, but not as nice as it would have been with the A/C going, natch. The next day, we went to the beach and the repair guys came and replaced the compressor on the A/C unit outside. By that night, it was cool enough inside that I needed to pull the comforter up. So all's well that ends well, I guess. I am sure the next guests had a lovely, cool time! But I do have to ding the star rating a bit for that snafu. The exterminator came to spray for roaches/bugs while we were there, so that should not be a problem. The description of the unit is pretty accurate. It was clean and the "amenities" were all there. There are a few maintenance issues (loft's shades that don't move, that kind of thing), but nothing major. The condo is nicely decorated with beach-y themes, palms, etc. There are even sand toys and buckets and beach chairs for guests to use when they go to take advantage of the condo's beach access, which is a short drive away (and a great perk!) I liked the view of the marsh out the back, with the snowy white egrets and the extremely green marsh grass (spartina?). Very nice. The location is easy driving distance to the beach (you might even walk if you are ambitious), shopping, entertainment and restaurants. I would note that the location in the description is incorrect. It is Dunes Pointe, not Heron.
