Location, location, location and a comfortable place to stay.
The location for this property could not have been better. The ocean view was fantastic and the apartment is right across from the ocean. A five minute walk at most. Overall it is well appointed and has everything needed, although the kitchen is stocked in a most basic way. The beds are comffie and the living room is large and open. My friend and I stayed four nights and we were pleased. We especially enjoyed the open windows to the ocean. We asked for a stopper for the tub, as a bath helps my friend manage a painful condition and they stopped by within an hour with the stopper. Very responsive management with great communication! A huge plus. All that said, there is definitely a few things prospective renters should know. This apartment does not have two toilets. While it has two bathrooms, one bathroom is only a shower and a sink. We found this quite odd. It was not a problem for us as we are dear friends, but if two couples stayed there it could be a problem. Also, the furnishings are not hardy. They are very low end and if one had children they would have to take great care to protect surfaces and protect against spills on the couches and chairs as any stains would be hard or impossible to remove. Perfectly serviceable furniture, just not super hardy. And the last thing being, this is an apartment complex so long term renters are there. The floors are wood and the walls not so well insulated. You can always hear the people walking above you and certainly hear any barking dogs or conversations, TV's on, etc. Not too big a problem for us as we were there a lot during the day, when it is pretty quiet, but if you wake easily or wish to sleep in, the tromping above could be a bother. For us, the place fit our needs and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I've included a thorough review so anyone who wants to rent this place knows what they are getting. Overall, great location, great view, terrific management.
