"The only thing keeping us from awarding 5 stars are little things that can easily be corrected. We love this building. This was our second stay, first time in this unit. We will likely stay in this same building next year, perhaps even this same unit. Had some plumbing issues upon check-in, took until Monday to get it resolved. Owner could have been a bit more accommodating in that regard. Had to turn off the water supply to the toilet each time it was used. Kitchen only has ONE dish towel and ONE dish-rag, and is otherwise not equipped for major cooking, if that is your plan. Pool-side charcoal grill is nice, and there is a nice table right at the grill should you opt to eat by the pool. Area there is kept clean and neat. Biggest complaint is that there was only ONE elevator card and ONE door key. We thought that was a bit strange for a three bedroom unit that would likely involve multiple couples going in different directions at different times. Ceiling fans were quiet with the exception of the middle bedroom, it is very noisy. Forget trying to do any quick clean-up with the vacuum cleaner, it is worthless. Unit could also use a new broom. Washer and dryer are excellent, large refrigerator kept everything nice and cold. Bedding is excellent, and there is plenty of room for those who like to listen to music, read, watch TV, or just sit and relax on the two decks. Unit is very quiet, never heard any noise from other units or guests. Parking is safe, well-lit, and easy in and out. One of the best features of this location is the easy walk to Crabby Bill's, the Mexican place, the Italian place, the Pub, the Holiday Inn and its bar and grill, the IRB museum, and other attractions. For bike riders, there are bike lanes, and access to the Pinellas Trail is nearby. For golfers, there are several nice, affordable courses within a few minute's drive. Overall, we would book this unit again, would just ask a few questions regarding the key situation in advance. I'm sure they could afford a couple of keys."
