South end of the commercial section of the boardwalk limits the traffic on the boardwalk. Easy to walk to restaurants in the 1.5 mile north end of the boardwalk or the quiet residential area at the 1 mile south end. Solid construction eliminates the noise of the boardwalk; open the slider at night to enjoy the sound of the surf. We will be renting the same unit next spring. The only reason for the lack of an excellent rating was the difficulty in opening the ancient locks in the corridors of the condo. Access is a problem everytime you leave the building unless you can get to the elevator.
