Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Emerald Towers 1205 this past week. The size of the condo was perfect for us, and we really liked the location on the beach. We cooked dinner in the condo 3 of the nights we were there, and really appreciated how well-stocked your kitchen was with pots/pans, cooking utensils, a great blender, and a Keurig which I can't live without ( I had brought my own from home but didn't even unpack it since the condo had one). We used the grills by the pool one night and they were very nice and kept clean. The 4 extra beach chairs came in handy with the umbrella and chairs we got through the Beach Service.

Thanks again for providing such a great place for our family vacation. We would definitely stay there again!

Nice condo, great view!

  • 3 of 5

I wish I could have given more stars because the booking was very easy, Shelley was very responsive. We were able to get in the unit early on our arrival day which was GREAT! The condo was very cute - loved all the décor - it is definitely an older building but the unit is updated and chic. The TV in the living room was great and the large sofa with chaise was very comfy and the view was amazing! However, I am a vacation snob, I will admit that up front. With that being said, the reason for only three stars - upon arrival only 1 elevator was working and with it being Saturday, everyone was checking in and out so the wait was terrible. On Monday morning while my daughter was in the gym, both elevators went out and she had to climb up 12 flights of stairs to get back to the condo. The dvd player was broken, the ice maker in the freezer did not work, there was a back up ice maker in the wet bar but it was turned off and it took almost 2 days to make a full tray. The entire freezer went out at one point but suddenly came back on. Shelley was very responsive but the maintenance people did not follow up very quickly (regarding the freezer/ice maker situation). The master bed was not super comfy and the last night we were there the toilet in the master bath would not flush - the tank would not fill up with water so that it could be flushed. Also, and this is probably the worst part, I killed 2 very large roaches in the master bed/bath area. To end on a good note - the unit was priced well and everything mentioned above can be fixed. For the price, I would consider staying here again.

Beautifully decorated and maintained unit! The overall property is also extremely well maintained.

This is our home away from home and have been pleased with our stays here over the past 5 or so years. My only suggestion is more lighting around the pool and grilling area.

Great location on the beach. The key cards need to be upgraded because we keep having to have the office re key our cards.

Well decorated, beautiful view of ocean, comfortable bed.

  • 4 of 5

When we first arrived everything was perfect. We did have a few kinks during our stay however Shelley is great and went well above and beyond to make up for the kinks. We had a great time. Have told everyone how pleased we are in working with Shelley and will return to Shelley' s properties in the near future.
