"Although this isn't the exact unit we were in, we rented a third floor unit from Antonella here at Long Bay Dunes. First off, I will say that working with Antonella was, by far, one of the best experiences I have had with an owner/manager. Every email, every text, every contact was responded to within hours (sometimes minutes!). She is very thorough and detailed - which I LOVE!
Now, about our unit. It was clean. It was decorated nicely. The kitchen was well supplied. We had everything we needed. We got to MB in the midst of their "1000 year" rain - the wind blew off shingles on the side of the building where we were. I contacted Antonella, who in turn, contacted the mgmt. Someone came to check to make sure we weren't getting water in the unit.
By the end of our week, having "lived" there for the six days, we noticed a bunch of little things that the owner might want to be notified of - nothing major, but stuff like a running toilet, slow-draining sink, a lampshade that was broken and had to be balanced in order to stay...I let Antonella know and she was grateful and forwarded on to the ones locally who would handle.
The only thing that was rough , AT FIRST, was the parking. The parking is a bit tight, although you do park under the building. If you have a van or truck, you'd better be pretty good in backing up - there's not a lot of extra space. That being said, after the first couple of days, my husband had all the turns figured out, so it wasn't so bad.
Having the washer/dryer was extremely handy, as was having a broom and vacuum - you know how sand gets in, no matter what. Loved having sliding glass doors from living room AND bedroom onto the balcony!
There were some beach chairs available to use that were in the beach closet.
I forgot to mention it, but it would have been nice to have had a few extra tall kitchen bags handy - with eating in most of the time, we emptied our garbage several times. Without extra kitchen garbage bags, we resorted to using grocery bags - it worked, but having the can liner would have been nice.
It was a GREAT week, despite the rain, winds, flooding - For our next visit to MB, I'll definitely be contacting Antonella again....
Thank you for the privilege of renting from you!!"
