The condo is clean and what we expected. However, the building needs painting.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment itself was clean and what we expected. However, the Welcome Package information didn't have the unit number. I had to call twice to each number listed in the Welcome Package and sent 2 or 3 text messages!! After about half an hour, I received the call with the unit number. However, the number for the door lock didn't work so we received another number for the lock. On July 15th at 2:43 pm, I sent a text asking how to access Netflix but didn't get an answer until 7:51 p.m. (five hours later). The answer was a 'yes'. I had to send another text to get the information on how to access Netflix. Which we didn't use it at all because it was only available upstairs in the small bedroom.

The 3 stars are due to the delays to answer 2 questions and the outside of the building needs painting, it looks a bit rundown.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review as we are always looking to improve. The unit number is in the rental agreement and in the file name of the welcome packet. I have updated to make it more clear for future guests, Thank You. I do apologize for the door code that was the first time we have had an issue with the electronic door lock. As for Netflix that isn't included in the amenities as it just came with the TV when purchased. Other than those I hope you have a great trip and thank you for staying with us.

LOVED OUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5

The first visual of the condominium complex wasn’t as pleasing as the condo itself. The complex looks tired as the numerous wood railings and spindles are old and grey. However, while we were there, all the upper balconies on our building were replaced, and looked really nice. Hopefully, the rest of the wood will be replaced in a timely fashion too so the 3 buildings will look fresh again.

BUT! It sure was nice to have 936 sq.ft. of living space with its own laundry room, 2-1/2 baths, 2 balconies with chairs, and even Netflix! The condo is 2 floors, fresh paint on the walls, and has a nice beach feel. Views of the ocean from both floors too, with great breezes off the Gulf.

1. Best kitchen we’ve had in a rental unit. Equipped/stocked well with EVERYTHING we could need. Didn’t have to bring a thing. Terrific new stainless steel appliances; even a dishwasher! It’s airy, bright, open, with great Corian counter space, and clean cupboards. Big kudos from those of us who cook!

2. The master and guest bedrooms are roomy. Loved both rooms! Terrific king mattresses, linens, and towels. Large closets with storage shelves too! We, and our guests, have enjoyed great sleeps here; a huge bonus as a great bed is important, especially when renters stay for extended periods. Loved the wicker furniture, cloth chairs and TVs in bedrooms.

3. The living/dining room are also a nice size, and comfortable. The couch pulls out into a bed. Typically pull-out couches aren’t that comfortable to sit on, but this one is.

4. Both bathrooms are in good shape. The main bathroom has a small table and over-the-toilet cabinet for renter’s toiletries, etc.

5. While small – it’s not a hotel pool after all – the pool was kept clean with comfortable lounging chairs around it.

6. Parking is underneath your unit, and can easily accommodate 2 cars. Fantastic when guests visit.

The location of the condo is fantastic. EVERYTHING is close by: restaurants, shops, family entertainment, many easily accessed by walking. There are biking trails nearby also. And the best thing … the condo is directly across the street from the GLORIOUS beach with miles and miles of fine, white sand.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a small condo at a reasonable price within a short walking distance of the beach and shopping. This condo was PERFECT for what we wanted. We stayed with 2 adults, 2 teens, and 2 tweens. Everyone was comfortable and we all slept great. The owners are very responsive and I would definitely stay here again!
