Needs major updates
First off, let me say that this condo does offer a beautiful view of the ocean. Unfortunately that’s about the only positive.
Kitchen cabinets had cracks throughout and were “repaired” with tape. All bathrooms had molded tile and looked dirty. Two of three bathrooms had drains that were so clogged, we had to plunge them. Carpet throughout condo was sticky and disgusting and I found goldfish crackers embedded in the carpet in one of the bedrooms. Bed linens and comforters were dirty and worn. No table on outdoor patio, despite appearing in pictures. Half the outlets didn’t work and breakers blew on multiple occasions for no apparent reason. I got a text message one day from the owners asking if they could show the condo one morning between 8am-9am since it is up for sale. Very unprofessional in my opinion to ask a guest if you can interrupt their vacation to try to sell a condo. When you spend this kind of money to rent a condo, you expect it to be much nicer and well taken care of. It was very disappointing and we will not be back.
Could have been better!!!
The property could use some updating especially in the bathrooms and kitchen. It could also have been cleaned better than it was. The bathtubs were dirty and the floors throughout the condo were dirty. Had to do some cleaning when we first arrived. Also, had to change a lot of the lightbulbs that were burnt out. Had a hard time getting the dryer to work on a continuous basis. It seems that if it got hot it had to cool down before you could start it again. We also found some Palmetto cockroaches in the room. There was not a table on the balcony only chairs so we could not take advantage of eating out on the balcony. We did have a great time on the beach and were able to access the beach chairs and umbrella each day.
EVERYTHING WAS PRETTY GOOD EXCEPT
1.WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME WAITING FOR ELEVATORS
2.MINOR-WE LOOKED FORWARD TO SITTING ON BALCONY HAVING SNACKS/DRINKS. BUT, CHAIRS OUT THERE-NO TABLE
3.HAD TO PLUNGE BATHTUB MYSELF WHEN WATER WOULDN'T GO DOWN-PULLED OUT GOBS OF HAIR.
4.SOMEONE ALWAYS IN "515" PARKING SPOT.
Great condo for family vacation
The condo was clean, well equipped and had everything we needed. Pool area was well taken care of and the beach was just steps away. The view was beautiful! The only slight inconvenience was the Elevators were being worked on and one was out of order for the week leaving the remaining elevators very busy but other than that, the place was great! Would definitely come back!!
Thank you so much for providing us with a review. We truly appreciate you taking the time to do so. And we are so glad that your stay with Southern Rentals & Real Estate was enjoyable. Please come back and visit again soon. We would love to have you as a guest.

Nice condo to stay
Nice place. Perfect space. Good location. Nice view. Areas to improve: to much seaweed and dead fish on beach. Condo needs to be stocked with salt, pepper, and sugar. Some of outlets did not work and tv's did not work in 2 bedrooms.
Thank you for your feedback. When you visited, you probably experienced some abnormal seaweed that is a result of certain kinds of weather. This seaweed/algae is not harmful, but it does deplete oxygen in the water, causing some near by fish to die and wash up on shore. We do apologize for your troubles in your condo, given the opportunity we would have loved to come correct them during your stay. We hope to have you back soon!

NEEDS A LITTLE TLC!
Beautiful view, beautiful weather (except one day!)
We have stayed at the Island Princess every year for 8 years in 2 bedroom units - this was the first time in this unit. It is nice but does need some "attention"!! Bathtub in one bathroom needed cleaning and recaulking. Dryer needs to be repaired ( or replaced it is either old or not taken care of - makes a terrible noise and takes a long time to dry clothes. Table on wall in dining area leg is broken - my husband propped it up with some folded cardboard. No sheets were provided for fold out bed and mattress cover on fold out bed had stains on it - we had to wash it before anyone could sleep on it ( housekeeping did bring sheets the next day!) The unit overall was decently clean - had a musty odor to it though. But the view is AWESOME !! There also is no table on the patio as in the photos online - just four chairs ( I really like the chairs) but would love to be able to sit out there and eat breakfast. But! my family had a wonderful time!!! Things can be repaired and cleaned but time with family in this beautiful place cannot be replaced!
Thank you so much for providing us with feedback regarding your stay. We do our best to rectify any maintenance issues as quickly as possible and also to work with the owner to replace appliances or furniture as necessary. We regret to hear about the issues you encountered, but happy that you were still able to enjoy your stay. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience.
