We stayed at this condo for a girls trip – it was perfect! There was lots of room, and we loved sitting on the lanai to relax and have either morning coffee or evening cocktails. The pool is steps away and is so quiet and relaxing. The beach is super close and was perfect to go for early morning runs or watch the sunset at night. We could walk to restaurants or take a quick drive, or stay in and enjoy delicious meals in the condo. We rented bikes onsite which was a lot of fun too. Great getaway!
This condo is on the 2nd floor facing the garden and road. There is an elevator. It does not have a beach view, but it is an easy walk to the beach. There are beach chairs available but you need to drag them onto the beach and back off to clear the beach for the sea turtles. This is a nice part of the island - not too far from a lot of restaurants and shopping, but away from the really busy areas.
For supplies, you get 1 trash bag in each pail, 1 small bar of soap per person, 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, 1 roll of paper towels, 1 pack of dishwasher soap - enough to get you started but after that, you're on your own. If you want to make coffee, bring basket type filters. Our group agreed that the tap water tastes awful (a common problem in this part of Florida) so you might want to bring bottled water. (Or you can fill up your water bottles with cold filtered water at the Ding Darling visitor center for free.)
The condo is very clean and neatly furnished. The appliances all worked fine. The laundry machines were quite large - but bring your own laundry soap. There was plenty of room for 2 couples. There's also a pull-out sofa in the living room, which we didn't use. There were no extra linens - not even pillowcases for the extra pillows. You get 1 towel per person. (You can rent beach towels for $10 each or just bring your own.) The kitchen was really well supplied for some things (mugs, dishes, cutlery) but limited for cooking equipment - the single slotted serving spoon fell apart when we picked it up, there was no baking dish to broil fish (we improvised using the cookie sheet).
There is a TV in the living room but we never turned it on. We spent a lot of time on the screened porch - although the no see-ums come right through the screen this time of year and love to bite (bring bug spray).
There is 1 assigned parking space. We had 2 cars and had no problem getting a guest space for the 2nd car. (That might be a problem in season since there aren't a lot of guest spaces.)
We could not access the building wifi at all. We were able to sign on using our own xfinity account signon.

we had so much fun! The condo was nice and well equipped! we did not expect housekeeping service, that was a nice touch! We loved the little cottages and may choose those next time, none were available. I would say you had everything we wanted and needed, though wish the pool would have been open in the evenings.
