My siblings and I wanted to bring my elderly father to the beach, but were concerned about his ability to get around safely. This unit was perfect for him. There is an elevator to easily get people and luggage from the carport to the main floor. All bedrooms surround the spacious kitchen family room combo. My father could sit in the shade on the covered porch and see his grandchildren playing on the beach. A short wooden walkway leads to the surf. It was perfect for all of us!
