The best thing we did for ourselves this winter was escape to Casa de Los Condores in the Nick Price Residences. The unit was exactly as pictured. The penthouse terrace opened to the sky and the glass railings gave me the feeling of living in the trees! It was glorious to hear the wind and the birds singing while sitting in the private terrace splash pool.
The bed was very comfortable and good for one of us with a sensitive back. The pantry was well stocked with basic cooking needs, and utensils were clean and plentiful. It was home away from home.
The residents' large pool was a 3 minute walk away, and we reached the beach and clubhouse/restaurant in 5 minutes with the free golf cart shuttle (on demand at the security gate).
One of us walked the Fifth Ave pedestrian and bike way from the ferry dock in town up to the South Gate. It took about 75 minutes. We also did morning and sunset beach walks.
Taxi service was very affordable. The huge Mega grocery store...
