Family Spring Break Trip    Apr 14, 2023

The condo was pleasantly clean, accommodating for our family, and comfortable. We were already well on the road when I got the email to print off my confirmation for the gate guard but thankfully he was very understanding. I wasn't aware that there were cameras on the premises, and I totally get it with it being a rental and we have one to, but I usually disarm it once guests have arrived. It was a little off-putting with it being on the entire stay. The walk to the beach (access 39) was not bad at all- about a 7 minute walk. We didn't try any of the pools. It got hot at night with the nest thermostat reset. The washer and dryer were nice to have since we were there for 5 days and that was a necessity. It's within driving distance to do many places. Rudy's is a must if you are looking for great and affordable BBQ! Sharkys was a fun experience for a nice sunset dinner. My kids (7, 7 & 11) absolutely loved the Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise and Wonder Works. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our stay and our trip.
