Beautiful Island

Spontaneous trip and our usual island was booked solid. We happened upon 101Sandpiper and after reading reviews booked it. We are glad we did. The condo is hidden on a dead end street and our unit was 400 steps to the beach. The view from the lanai is beautiful and we ate most meals there and had cocktails there nightly. The condo is well equipped and the storage has chairs, umbrellas, a beach cart and really anything you could want. There’s a nice Weber grill there too and built in park style grills. (We brought our Weber)- so that’s nice to know for a return trip. The unit was very clean and had obviously been updated. The beds were comfortable and kitchen very nicely stocked with those quirky items you might need. Buy a bag of ice because the fridge couldn’t keep up with the 2 of us so I can’t imagine a family of 5. The pool is nice with shade and it is well maintained. The walk to the beach is easy as you access by an all weather walkway up to the sand. Only negative is the beach itself is difficult to walk on because of the texture- it’s 90% crushed shells. Bring water shoes for in and out of the water. The beach is private but there is lots of foot traffic, dogs and bikes on the beach. Many boats would anchor right in front of us for a swim or an afternoon of fishing. This was a new experience for us and those regular to that area didn’t find it unusual. The island is beautiful and there are many restaurants and stores to shop. We enjoy cooking so we ate out once. We did go to the Farmers Market on Sunday but it’s seasonal and we hit the last one. It was SO nice. The fruits and veggies were plentiful and much less expensive than the grocery. We definitely would be open for a return trip with the knowledge that the beach was not our norm. **Some places continue to ask for masks. Please be respectful of that. There are plenty of places that don’t if that’s not your thing.
