Great beach gem for family of 4!
This was a terrific experience for our family. The property owner was very responsive via email to prepare us for the rental and all correspondence was fast and informative. When Hurricane Irene threatened to ruin our vacation the owner was only concerned about everyone's safety. We lost the first two days of our rental due to the evacuation but the owner stayed in touch with us before, during, and after on the situation and let us know as soon as we were clear to start our vacation rental. He also prorated us for the days we missed even though the Hurricane was not his doing! ______The unit was very clean and safe and had plenty of room for two adults and two kids. The master suite was large with an outdoor deck that we enjoyed most late evenings. There was plenty of room to unpack all of our clothing and it was convenient having laundry access upstairs to get towels and swimsuits cleaned nightly. _______The downstairs pullout worked well for the kids and they still had room to play with toys on the floor and, even though the unit has cable with two tvs, they rarely wanted it on when we were in the unit. Nice 1/2 bath on the first floor too. Great eating area in kitchen leading to an outdoor patio. The unit has a fully-working kitchen and we had planned to cook dinner there a few nights but opted to only do cold breakfast and lunch there and ate out in the evenings instead. Having microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher was fine for us but stovetop and oven were available. ______Loved the parking space that is right in front of the ground level front door for easy unpacking. Loved the quiet condo community and the short walk to pool access. This rental was attractive to us because of the pool, which appeared very nice, but we had so much fun at the beach we never once used the pool although others seemed to be enjoying it. The beach was really the key to this whole trip. We had great beach days and with such close and private beach access we were on the beach from morning to night daily and it was easy to come back and pack sandwiches or retrieve something forgotten. _____ Eating out - go for The Cellar (dinner), Pirate's Inn (breakfast and dinner) and Laguna Grill & Martini Bar (beachside breakfast). Did not like Bella Luna -service or food. A trip to Aunt B's for ice cream is a yes but be ready for a long line and superhuge portions. Yum! _____This was our first rental and we would definitely rent again from this owner and recommend!
