Reviewer Comments:

First & foremost, I LOVE the location and I always rent a condo within walking distance to Sea N Suds - they save me & my hubs a spot at the oyster bar whenever we're in town. For the condo - aesthetically and functionality: award goes to the kitchen! The furniture is very well loved and needs to be upgraded. The small bedroom with 2 twin beds had a sour smell and we spend the entire weekend with that door closed. The DVD player (only one) in the den did not work, but the cable worked great in the den & MBR. I've always loved that the Boardwalk's balconies have 2 access points - 1 from the den, 1 from the MBR... BUT the door knob on the MBR side did not turn and someone had taped over the mechanics of the door & to open it we had to pry it open with a flat utensil. The front door has a key pad entry - that is ALWAYS a plus! BUT you are unable to secure yourself inside the condo - there is no separate dead bolt and the security latch was not properly installed and DOES NOT latch. Both bathrooms are small, but completely functional. The A/C worked without a hitch and all the ceiling fans worked. Washer & Dryer worked great, we didn't have an occasion to use the dishwasher. All and all, I would come back - just please fix the smell, the doors, and replace the MBR mattress.

Reviewer Comments:

Perfect location, property was well kept and cleaned daily. I would suggest having the sofa replaced or recovered because there are worn holes in all the seat cushions. We have a 3 year old boy and I was constantly worried about him putting his fingers in the holes so after the 2nd day I got a blanket out of the closet and covered the cushions so he wouldn't make them worse. And I would suggest the carpets be cleaned or removed. Overall we enjoyed our stay and think this is a great place!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed 9 days. When we arrived Thursday evening its smell moldy and musty. The floors weren't really clean. On Friday morning we noticed the A/C wasn't cooling the place so we called the next day it took them over 4 hours to get someone out there to check it and when they finally got there they just vacuumed out a line and said it would work now. Then after we returned back to the condo late Friday it still wasn't cooling so we had to call yet again and we were getting married on Monday and it was so humid in there. Finally someone came late Saturday afternoon and fixed it. Condo is very out dated and needs new furniture and needs to have a good deep clean. The kitchen is very nice it was the only thing that has been updated. The pictures on VRBO are a little out dated as well.

Reviewer Comments:

Well, the condo was fine. Basically what we expected. The dryer did not work and this was a bit of a problem. When you only bring a couple beach towels and the condo only supplies 4 towels for 4 nights, this can be a problem. They did replace the dryer on the last day. The concern comes from the fact that the agency knew the dryer was broken prior to our arrival and did not tell us. We had to call for extra towels and they did supply those. I am also not happy about an additional 82.62 charge on my cc that I was never made aware of.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location and a beautiful view. Nicely updated kitchen and the building was well maintained. Constant cleaning of the outdoor areas. The condo building and Sea and Suds share parking so finding parking at times was very challenging. The sofa had a large hole worn in one of the cushions. This was not a tear that may have happened recently, but a whole that has been expanding for some time. Another disappointment were the beds. I do not expect a top quality mattress, the beds were very uncomfortable, especially the twin beds. You when you laid down you could feel the individual springs. Finally, I am not sure what the facility can do about this since they have a security guard on site, but two days in a row my daughter’s sunglasses were stolen from the side of the pool.
