Uncommonly responsive host: very fast.
This unit is a great value vs the fancypants resort that my wife had to go to for a conference. We've stayed at the fancy resort before and would rather come back here: free parking, cool atmosphere and location, and even beach stuff that doesn't cost extra money!
We are fussy travelers and usually go for a beachfront location. This time, sans kids, the location exceeded our expectations. Wife got her mani and pedi right across the street with no appointment during spring break [the fancy resort couldn't accommodate us last time we were in town]. Plenty of restaurants nearby. The Columbia is simply a scenic walk across the bridge. Go there, it's worth it.
It's a leisurely 10 min walk to the busy beach or a little longer to cross the bridge to a quieter county beach. The atmosphere around the building is great, with the yacht club right next door.
Beach towels, chairs, and a little cooler are in the unit!
Nice little pool downstairs.
The unit is best for 2-3 people, no more than 500sf.
Don't forget to bring quarters for laundry.
