I rented a condo there last year and had a great vacation. However, I would never want to own a condo there. I was about to rent one again this year until I noticed a disclaimer one of the rental companies had posted about a winter storm this year causing even more damage to the complex. I can't imagine what our condo would be like this year. Last summer there was absolutely no beach at all during high tide. The water literally came right up to our deck and covered 1/2 of the stairs to the building (they looked like they were recently rebuilt too) and underneath our building you could see exposed insulation stuff flapping in the wind. The carpet always had a slightly damp feeling because of the water practically going under our building. I think there are now two pools that have been wiped out. Just a bit down the beach you will see some beautiful houses wrapped in yellow caution tape sitting in the ocean. The erosion is really bad at the north end of the island. It is a natural process and houses should have never been built there. Loved spending a week there, but would be a nervous wreck if my money was invested in property.
