We really loved your condo! It was just the way we anticipated it would be; very well equipped with everything we needed, especially the kitchen. It is very clean and extremely well situated for walking to the beach. The only thing I could suggest for improvement, would be the installation of a ceiling fan or two on the lanai to help with air circulation during high humidity when you want to read ouside.
Thank you so much.
We stayed in unit 209 at the Dorset, located across the street from Lido Beach. There was an ocean view from the livingroom window. It was directly across from the Pavilion on the beach that offers restrooms, picnic tables, a snack shop that offers hamburgers, hotdogs, ice cream etc.. along with outside showers to rinse off the sand. The beach itself is a lovely beach.
The Dorset was a 10 minute walk to St Armands Circle, an area filled with art galleries, high end clothing shops, restaurants and bars. The streets are lined with beautiful statues. Very pretty.
The Dorset itself is an older property, but has weathered the years well. The property was very clean and well maintained. There is a pool, hours 9am to 10pm, and coin op laundry machines. There are no vending or ice machines on the property. It is very quiet and may not be ideal for families or younger adults looking for an active property. For couples looking for a quiet get away, it is lovely. I met a couple who had been coming there for over 30 years!
As far as the unit itself, it was a little bit dated, but very clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need. This was a one bedroom unit with a king sized bed and plenty of closet and drawer space. I liked that there were 2 doors. The one in the bedroom lead directly to the pool. If you are looking for a quiet, clean place to stay where you can walk to the beach, I would recommend this property.
