A rather beautiful condo in a very high end Palm Beach complex — think the Breakers — was offered to us. With three or four bedrooms, we could easily accommodate my folks.
This was our 5th trip to CBR, but not within the last 4 years. I had been following this thread, so I was well informed of all the construction. I did not think it would matter to us but I was disappointed in some ways.
