good just had trouble checking in. Had to be moved to another facility down rd then rerun next am.
Overall it was great but when we arrived, after a 6.5 hr drive from Orlando, loaded 2weeks worth of luggage up to the 7th floor, exhausted, our room keys did not work! The battery was dead. Ok so we call the number on our after hr packet & get this answer “i’m Sorry but you’ll have to contact whoever you booked through.” Really? Ok so I called our rental agency # & get this answer “sorry but we will try to contact the after hrs maintenance” but after 20 mins no answer. I called back & get this answer “we will have to transfer you to another facility down the road! The place we were in had approx 8 cars in the parking lot. But they were unable to just move us in the same facility so we now take our entire luggage back to the car & re pack. (There were 4 of us by the way so a lot of luggage for two weeks). They ended up making it right by putting us in a very nice room & reimbursing us 2 nights. Yes it was very inconvenient but management was polite & apologetic & made it right. I hope they realize that all they had to do is send maintenance to open the door & they could have saved themselves $ & unhappy customers. We had to return the next morning as we were not able to stay in the facility they moved us to for the 1st night. Very inconvenient.
We booked through VRBO on line but evidently there was a 3rd party agency. When we returned to the original condo Chris the Mgr was very concerned & made a few phone calls to look into the matter. Very professional & polite.
We apologies for the inconveniences you went through, but are glad to hear a refund was issued for your night stay and groceries. We are happy to hear we made it right by your standards under the circumstances. VRBO is a 3rd party website.
Overall thank you for your review and we hope that you come back and stay with us again.
Perfect Location, Terrific Facilities
We stayed in 705 Emerald Towers. The condo was perfect for us, two old friends getting together after many years. The view was great from the balcony, right on the beach. We watched the guys put out the chairs and umbrellas early every morning then take them down in the afternoon; quite entertaining. Our biggest complaint was the lack of communication with management, and the failure to give correct instructions for obtaining keys, etc. We received an email directing us to go to the Southern Rental office, several miles away to pick up the keys; the office was closed. After several phone calls, we were given the code to the gate and told to go directly to Emerald Towers. By the time we got there, the office was closed. We did find our package and once we got in, we were thrilled with our unit. More poor communication when they were restriping the parking lot and needed cars to be moved, but they didn't put up notices until late in the day. Other than what we considered poor management and a lack of communication, it was a great place to stay. The management fee, however, is grossly overpriced and totally unearned. We loved unit 705 in Emerald Towers and would request this unit again. We were trying to lease a unit on the 10th floor, but the owner was a jerk, so we went for this one, which was actually a much nicer unit, better beds, i.e., a king and a queen vs. a king and bunks. The unit was clean when we got there and they certainly didn't have much clean up to do when we left; we didn't cook, and never sat down in the living room or the dining room, but we loved the balcony. It is well-situated and close to everything! Thanks, owner for a great stay! Making reservations is a little tricky; we would like to know how to request the same unit in the future? P. S. Only 4 stars for poor management, not for unit or facilities.
Thank you for your feedback. We send all guest their guest portal information a week before arrival, this includes what to bring and check information. Unfortunately, this does sometimes go to guest junk/spam folders and goes unnoticed. Greatest apologies that it sounds like this may have happened to you and communications dragged. We are pleased to hear that you did love the condo please reserve direct next year.
View was amazing!

Only issue is the complex could not perform any maintenance. Our patio doors would not lock.
It was okay. We have stayed at better
