we arrived during Spring Break also known as Texas week on the island. The unit was pristine and very clean and the owner was great and very accommodating
Very spacious modern condo VERY close to the beach. Less than a minute walk. That helped us a lot as we have a small child and lots to take to the beach with us.
All was provided - coffee pot, blender, pots, pans, strainer for pasta, plates, utensils, glasses, toaster, etc. Very spacious pantry, full sized refrigerator, microwave, and full stove/oven. Kitchen is modern, with granite counter tops, deep sinks, dishwasher and even a built in wine rack above the refrigerator.
There is a bar top with bar stools for seating while you cook and entertain. A nice and large dining table there for dinners or lunch. The whole place is much bigger than I anticipated and was very spacious.
Master could almost qualify as a suite. There is a walk in closet in the master bath, a full sized garden tub and shower, with a place to sit and shave or put your drinks while soaking. The vanity is a little small in the master bath, but its ok cause there is a mirror on the dresser in the bedroom. Yes a full sized dresser, a king sized bed AND a couch AND still LOTS of room. I think its a pull out couch but we had so much room, we didn't even use the couch. The second bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed and a full sized dresser with another huge closet.
There is a washer and dryer in the unit - stackables - so you can wash clothes if you need to. The only small thing about the place is the pool. Its a 3 -4 ft pool and good for the kids, and lounging. But you really don't need a pool too much when the ocean is right there. I mean RIGHT THERE. Its a half block to walk to the beach and there is beach access including some beach parking if you are lucky.
The condo really made me feel at home. I had all I needed there and then some. Its a rental, so there will be little things like the towels are not plush, or maybe the remotes need batteries, but this condo makes up for that ten times over. If you have ever stayed anywhere else on the island, you know they tend to be run down, and have the "threw up island" decor everywhere. This place has minimal island decor but just enough to be tasteful and this condo is taken care of, modern, and spacious.
The owner could not have been more helpful in booking too. You cant find that. I wanted it for a kind of random date, and it was semi last minute, but she got it done and was very friendly and prompt. I would definitely rent this condo again and hope to soon.
HIGHLY recommend staying at this condo. Its a spectacular place to stay, very close to the beach and for more than reasonable prices.

The condo itself was very nice although it did not have a balcony. Granite counter tops and nice tile floors. Couches were a little sandy but that is to be expected at a beach house. The pool area needed a little cleaning. I think that had more to do with the other renters than the condo owners but overall this was a great place.
