This vacation rental is professionally managed by Blue Sun Properties. We aren't like other rental management companies; we are vacation property owners too and we understand the investment made and the desire to maintain our beautiful vacation homes. On the flip side, we were vacationing guests here for years and understand what our guests have come to expect from a top-notch rental management company. www.bluesunproperties.com
We arrived and had no problems locating the property or gaining access to the unit. The unit was exactly how pictured on the booking site. The unit was coxy, clean and had a wonderful view. I plan on using this property and site for all of my traveling needs in the future. I must say it really did feel like home away from home!
We have been annual renters of Aqua Condos since 2007. This is the first year that we rented from a 3rd party (Blue Sun Properties) rather than directly from Aqua. The booking procedure went well. We got our door/gate codes early and the room was ready for us upon arrival. Our experience with the rental portion from Blue Sun properties could not have been any easier. No problems at all.
We enjoyed our stay and will most likely rent another Aqua Condo for next summer, but there were several disappointing items with this year's vacation.
1) General cleanliness of the condo was not what we have grown to expect from Aqua condos. The entry door needs a coat of paint in a bad way. The carpet in the living room was very soiled and in need of stretching (carpet roll in middle of floor). Yellow chair and foot stool in living room just plain nasty. The Master Bed room carpet had a huge spill area just inside the door that made the whole room feel nasty. The air conditioning unit would not come on when we checked in. Called the maintenance number. Got a quick call back from a courteous maintenance person. Breaker was tripped. The Breaker tripped 4 more times during our stay (mostly during the night and we woke up warm). Balcony partying at 2-3 am woke us up several nights and we've never seen that at Aqua previously. Washing machine had terrible odor and mold around the door.....just needs cleaning.
2)New Parking garage monitoring is over the top. Received a warning notice that my vehicle would be towed because I was not parked inside the lines. I was in an area where only 2 cars can park between concrete columns. I had cheated to the left side in order to give us more room and the car to our right more room. It benefited both vehicles and affected no other cars. You were going to tow our car for that? Relax a little bit on this.
On the positive side the mattresses were comfortable and we enjoyed the lay out of our room. The beach chair guys/girl do a great job. We love the location of Aqua and the family atmosphere (minus the 2-3 am balcony parties). Coming here has become a family tradition that we hope to continue for years to come. Please don't let Aqua deteriorate like complexes we used before Aqua opened in 2007. A week at Aqua is something we save $ year-round for........with that investment I believe we have every right to expect a clean condo every time. 2015 did not meet that expectation. We will try again.
The Aqua was a great resort and the room (1001) was beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and utensils. Couldn't ask for a better view from this room. The security and support staff at the resort we excellent as well. We would love to stay in this unit again in the future. The staff Blue Sun Properties were all very friendly, helpful and accommodating
We recently stayed in this beautiful unit and had a wonderful vacation. It's location provides numerous delicious restaurants as well as fun entertainment. The unit is beautifully decorated with granite counters and upscale appliances. Love that it is so close to the pier for fun fishing trips! Beautiful views of the sunset and beach provide a relaxing and memorable vacation!
My 5 year old son and I stayed at this property for about 9 days Sept 18-27th. It was a very cute condo, the kitchen was an excellent open layout (some kitchens are soo tiny!) It was clean for the most part, but a good scrubbing would've been appreciated before we arrived. The fans were built up with dust and the master bath floor was dark gray/black and when I walked on it with clean, damp feet... the floor turned white from where I had been walking! Those were my only 2 complaints. Otherwise a snug place for 4 people or less.
The condos at Aqua are very pretty and the location is excellent however the maintenance of this condo was very poor. The cleaners only clean what is right in front of them and nothing is moved or picked-up to sweep or vacuum underneath. The whole condo is tile so it is very evident where the floor is cleaned - center - versus where it is not - outer edges. Door to den/2nd bedroom had been removed and new doorway trim installed but it was never painted or caulked...just raw wood. The walls in the hallway were horribly scuffed-up even for right after the busy season. No hot water in the kitchen but this was fixed promptly. Mold growing in the washer. Mold growing in the shower - looked like it had been caulked over instead of removed and replaced. Showerhead was filthy. All faucets had gunk on them. One of the faucets in the master bath dripped water backwards so that it pooled all around the faucet - this was partially fixed. White table in front of sofa had a black edge from side to side from people's feet. Old food stuck on the seat of one of the dining room chairs and on the trash can. Glass in one of the pictures above the sofa was missing. Door to bathroom would not stay open as it was not properly hung - an offer was made to fix this but we did not want to waste more of our vacation time. We contacted Jeff from Blue Sun Properties regarding the hot water and to advise him of the housekeeping issues. He did get someone to fix the hot water issue and offered to have the cleaners come back. However by that point I had spent 2 hours cleaning and wanted to get on with our vacation and having the same poor cleaners come back seemed fruitless. Next time we will rent from an agency/company that has a local presence instead of being out of state.
