Great first-time experience!
I've never rented a vacation place before, so was a tad nervous. I'm very happy to report that everything was exactly as described on vacationrentals.com. Our condo was clean, airy, and fully outfitted with everything we needed (save bath and bed linens.) The building is at the "quiet" end of the beach, several blocks north of the boardwalk. This was fine with me -- the boardwalk was an easy drive away and parking was plentiful. I was charmed by things like the daily visits by the fresh fruit truck (and the driver who announced his arrival by clanging away on a farmhouse triangle) and the fact that from this 3rd-floor unit, I could see the ocean and hear the surf. The pool at Atlantic Winds was clean and pleasant. I appreciated that the pool gates locked at 9:30 pm so that folks weren't tempted to have late-night poolside parties. One thing that really amazed me about the property was how quiet it was inside. Even though there were people in the next unit, absolutely no sound carried through the walls. My own house isn't as quiet as the condo! Many thanks to Kathy and Joe for making us feel welcome -- Joe even shared some Jersey tomatoes out of his home garden! This transplanted Jersey girl (now living in Ohio) was delighted to come "home" to such a great place!
