We booked this location as we wanted to be close to the beach. Mission accomplished as there is a private walkway that takes 5 minutes to walk to the beach which is a huge bonus when you have a small child.
The condo had excellent accommodations with three bed rooms upstairs (twins that can be converted to kings). The master has a TV but the other two rooms do not. The master has a full en suite with a bathtub and another full bath upstairs and another downstairs. This place could very comfortably accommodate a party of 6.
There are no face cloths and if 6 people were really staying there, there would not be enough towels as they state they only change out your towels every 5 days. They have a washer and dryer in the unit as well as a dishwasher. Having laundry detergent and dishwasher soap would be nice touches to provide. There is a maid that comes daily. The internet was good. The beach toys and boogie boards in the garage were great to have. The patio area was good for napping and lounging. Covered parking was nice. Safe location with security guard and gate. The area is convenient to the village with restaurants and shops (walking distance). It is just a few minutes drive to Gateway Mall with good shopping including some American stores like McDonald’s, Toys R US, and Build-a-Bear. They provided us with an extra fan and baby cot. Two of our favorite features were the expansive DSTV service allowing us to catch some American football and watch the Food Network and the balcony that gives you an obstructed view of the ocean but it is still very nice. Our favorite spot was the wonderful lounging area downstairs with a nice TV.
As the title states, it was an almost perfect stay. The only downside were cockroaches and ants. Ants were plentiful in the kitchen on the bottom floor but that did not really bother us. We did find several cockroaches in the kitchen and living room. This place is so clean that I doubt this is a recurring issue but it was a bit of a negative. The manager said that they would contact the exterminator as they have fumigation done quarterly and should not be seeing these bugs. This issue would not prevent us from staying there again but would want assurances that creepy critters would not be joining us during the stay.
We loved the area and had a nice stay thus will definitely consider a return visit.
