Stayed here for a week with my girlfriend. Very close to shopping. Convenient location! The room was great, we stayed in 108. The bedroom was a good size with a king bed and lots of pillows. One side of the bed did feel like it had a big hole in it, other than that, the bed was decent. The bathroom...

Everything was very nice; place was clean. Some things were little worn. Chairs outside were falling apart. The bathroom was the best part. Big, nice shower. BUT THE BED! The bed mattress was thin and very uncomfortable. By the third night of no sleep I was miserable. A happy tourist is a well rested tourist! the sofa sleeper was thinner...

Staff at Harmony Beach Vacations is great (as usual). This particular unit has a nicely updated bath. However, the unit has VERY poor matresses - both for the bedroom and hideabed sofa. The bed is extremely noisy as well. Save your back and avoid this unit until they replace the matresses!

I am a seasoned traveller (and somewhat of a hotel snob) and feel that when you book at Capri you're getting exactly what you pay for. My mom and I (ages 40, 56) found Capri by recommendation of a friend in 2013 and have stayed here yearly since. We go for a stress free, laid back girl's trip and this...

Great location! Very friendly staff. Very convenient. Will definitely recommend to friends and be back! Rooms are perfect size, love the privacy and private beach. Close to town and attractions yet tucked away from all the hustle a bustle. Way better than a huge resort!

This place is perfect if you like a relaxing beach vacation. It is like stepping back in time with modern convenience. October is the perfect month to visit. It has a homey feel because each unit is individually owned and they take pride in their little space in paradise. At checkout we booked the same room for the same time...

50's motor inn turned condo is less than 100 steps to put feet on water. Don't have to cross street or use public entrance to beach. Capri has private stairs to beach. If you can't climb stairs then this is not the place for you. Our room was 123 and arriving at night it was difficult to find condo because...

We have stayed at this location several years in a row. I can tell you that the location can't be beat. It is not a resort, but we love it! The units are independently owned, and none are exactly alike. We have found the office and repairman very helpful if we ever need anything. All units have a kitchen. You...
