"My extended family and I just returned from our recent stay at Tropical Oasis. PRO's: The reservation process was great. Jane was very friendly and answered any questions I had regarding our stay. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised by the size and high end finishes in the home. The home was Extremely clean (which we greatly appreciated) and as noted in the description, is well equipped with double dishwashers, washing machines, and double refrigerators. All of which came in extremely handy for a large group. The location was great. Easy access to shopping and recreational activities. The weather was in the 60's most days, but we were still able to utilize the pool which we had paid to have heated. The parking was adequate as it can hold 4 cars. The interior of the home is laid out well, however, I would caution that there are an abundance of stairs, so if you are traveling with senior's, it may be challenging to maneuver the several flights to access upstairs bedrooms. One of the most favorite parts of my trip was the comfort of both the mattress and sheets in the master suites. While the sheets were extremely comfy, the comforters in several rooms appeared to be tattered and in need of replacement. Con's: While overall our stay was great, we did have several challenges within the home. There were obvious repairs that needed to be done. The back of our master suite toilet leaked the whole week, the living room furniture (couches) are unusable, in that the springs have sprung and it is almost impossible to sit on. The dining room seats, while a nice fabric, all have a sunken seats from extended wear. The arms of the dining chairs were all loose or broken. We ended up going to Lowe's to get screws to reinforce them, so that no one would take a spill. The banister on the fourth floor was broken and definitely posed a safety hazard. Several lights were out in the bathrooms, however upon one call, (Henry) came by to replace them. The bedrooms were a good size with the exception of one of the bunk rooms, which we found totally unusable. The head clearance is minimal, and un-usable by an adult; so unless you have small children to occupy the bunk room, I would not count it as a usable bedroom. The beach access distance is a bit further then described. Despite the minor inconveniences, we had an overall Great stay. It is a lovely high end home in a great location. I would definitely recommend this home and would not hesitate to return."
