We stayed at this unit in late July for a week. We were scheduled to stay for 2 weeks, but the air conditioning broke and we moved to a different unit for the second week. The air conditioning issue was handled very professionally and everything was made right by both the owners and the on-site management. The condo itself really stands out by how nicely it is furnished. The kitchen had every conceivable appliance including our two favorite things - a Keurig coffee maker and margarita machine! The unit had an excellent selection of dishes, wine glass, etc, along with other small appliances such as a crock pot, etc.
The kitchen itself was a bit dated, but everything worked and was very clean. The owners provide all sorts of items for the beach, including several chairs, beach towels, an umbrella, toys and beach games, etc. We didn't bring any beach supplies with us and everything we needed was available in the condo. In terms of beach logistics, it is very nice to have a ground floor unit with direct access to the beach. It was great to be able to walk right out of the lanai to the beach, and be able to use the hose outside the lanai to rinse off sand when we returned. Both the master and guest baths are updated, and the master bath has a wonderful walk-in tile shower that is stunning. Bedroom furniture is fresh and the beds were comfortable. It was also very convenient to have a washer/dryer in the condo.
Prospective renters at Fisherman's Cove need to understand there is a trade-off between being on the ground floor vs. floor 2 or 3. While it is fantastic to have the direct beach access on the ground floor, you do sacrifice the incredible water views available on the upper floors. We also heard a lot of noise from people walking and moving about in the unit above us. This wasn't a huge deal, but something to be aware of. Overall, this is a great choice at Fisherman's Cove, and the owners certainly make guests feel welcome with all the amenities!
