Please do not make your decision to stay here based on the photos. Photos are old and place is not very well maintained. When we arrived the deck was full of leaves (from the fall) and dirty, plants were dead or dying, grill was dirty and courtyard had leaves and trash. Inside the condo, the carpets are dirty, no extra linens (we were given 4 bath towel for one week for 4 people), one shower had very low pressure and kitchen is not well stocked. We were provided one kitchen towel and oven takes several tries to get it to heat. Overall the place is dingy. The location is very good and the property has great potential if it was just maintained. It took several tries to get a hold of the owners or property management when we arrived to discuss our disappointment in the property. After three days the owners did send someone out to clean the patio and courtyard and planted new flowers. This was nice, however, this should have been done before we arrived. We asked to be moved to another rental, but nothing was available. The owner gave us $100 off for each night but that really didn't improve our overall experience. Our plan was to come to the beach to relax not fight with the owner over repairs and stay a week in an undesirable place. The owners live close by so the property is just neglected .Our sense was the owners did not really care.

We really enjoyed staying here. The location is excellent and the unit is comfortable. There are tons of places to eat within walking distance and the beach is one house away. The view of the ocean from the living room is excellent. A few things to note that are not accurate in the listing:
- the Jacuzzi is not oceanview. It is on the patio that faces the street in a courtyard that is used by multiple units in the building.
- there is no dishwasher in the unit (though the listing says it is one of the amenities)
- the big patio is shared with another vacation rental unit so be prepared to have to share the patio, barbeque, and patio furniture with the renters from that one other unit. There was one night where we both planned to have BBQ dinner on the patio and there was only one patio table and therefore one family needed to balance their plates on their lap.
- when were were there the bikes are rusted and broken (broken chain, flat tires). I recommend bringing your own bikes if you want to bike ride.
Besides those minor discrepencies, the place is pretty much as you see it/read about it in the listing. We stayed there for a week and had a great time.
