"Airbnb Review #792079837972573481 #183352"

by Review from Airbnb Guest #183352


What a lovely condo AND even more spacious than the pictures show! We loved the kitchen and the different sitting areas in the living area. The condo has sweeping views of the bay and downtown- and a view of the ocean. We walked to St. Armands Circle for coffee, shopping and dinner. The condo building offers beach chairs which was so convenient for a day on the beach or just to watch a sunset. And the condo is stocked with beach towels.
Clara and her team respond quickly to questions. Great experience. We stayed for 2.5 months and loved it!
