The walk to the beach is over 10 minutes. You have to cross major streets. The view from the balcony was not a parking lot, but it wasn't a sunset or sunrise either. For the amount of money I paid, I was not happy. Friends stayed in actual homes and paid only $1000. I paid $1700. And my friends had a wonderful view. The Property Management is very friendly. Easy check in and out. Condo was clean and had all the amenities. Location is not ideal unless you are planning on hibernating.
