This 2 bedroom condo is not quite on the beach but close enough to drive there within 10 to 15 minutes, depending on traffic. The Vanderbilt Lakes complex is beautiful with many palms and blooming plants. We found it adequate for our 2 month stay. However, would have liked more natural light. Sunlight coming in from the parking lot in the morning was the only source of light. The lanai was small and faced north, and close foliage prevented any sunlight from entering or any view of the surrounding area. Lots of privacy though. We observed dogs and cats around the complex, so it is pet friendly. One thing that jarred us was the sound of the AC kicking in and running. TV had to be turned way up to be able to hear.
