Great deal

  • 5 of 5

Loved the apartment; nice and clean and great price. Beware that she doesn’t provide shampoo or toilet paper, which she tells us when she sends the rules; however, how many people read them. I didn’t watch any TV because we spent our time out, but the apartment met our needs.

Condo fine but management left something to be desired

  • 3 of 5

The condo was as-advertised and well kept. However, the owner installed an electronic keypad lock and, as you can see on the map, this condo is 100-200 yards from the ocean; we all know what happens with electronics and salt-water air. The door opened fine when we got there but after we returned from the beach, we were unable to get back in. My car keys and wallet and street clothes were all inside. The owner is not local and did not leave a mechanical override key with the local manager, just the same keypad code we had. After talking with the owner over the phone, we ended up using the old standby - rock to the window.

The owner did come out the next morning to replace the keypad lock. The window was broken for our entire stay of three days. She did refund my deposit.

Nice stay

  • 3 of 5

This condo isn’t luxurious but it is definitely nice and well kept. Great for the price and such close beach access!!

If I was to nit pick I’d say the beds weren’t very comfortable and we couldn’t get the cable or the patio door to work in one of the bed rooms. The picture of the couch is out dated, it is now 2 separate couch’s and a recliner. Couch bed is extremely uncomfortable and is slanted. Barely enough towels and blankets to accommodate a 6 person stay. One of the showers broke and remained running hot water for over 24 hours until it was fixed.

Good things: The bathrooms were new and nice. Bed rooms were nice size. The patio is huge. Very short walk to beach access, a Dollar General, 2 great gift shops and Black Beards restaurant.

All in all, I’d definitely stay here again.

Location was perfect .

  • 3 of 5

The location was perfect . We were within walking distance to beach . The size was perfect . The showers were roomy and clean . My only criticism would be the comforters and bedskirts were looking old with a couple of stains on one . I found the bed to be comfortable . The wall had a small area of damage .

Disappointment all around

  • 1 of 5

A week before our scheduled trip the condo owner notifies me, very nonchalant, that I won’t have any TV or wifi service for my stay due to building rewiring. Upon arrival, we notice we did have wifi, but no tv- ok, I can manage. I was promised a DVD player per the lease, but there was NOT one available. Day 2 of our trip, we arrive to the condo from a beach trip to find Spectrum (cable comp) inside working on some wiring. I was never notified about this, nor did I appreciate strangers walking around my room with my valuable and personal items lying around, in addition to the fact that we had NO access to our condo due to them working. Spectrum did NOT finish what they started, cut the wifi, and left some wires on the floor, which I had to move for safety reasons. Pool appears to be heated, so the water was uncomfortably hot for 100 degree weather. There is not enough water pressure in the condo, and there aren’t enough towels for a condo that “sleeps 6.” I was new to VRBO, so I wasn’t sure what to expect; good thing I packed my towels! No toilet paper is provided either- to me that’s bizarre! Never once did the owner apologize for the inconvenience, even after I emailed her the fiasco with Spectrum, where I was notably upset. When I asked if she would consider a discount, she offered me $30 total- I think the inconvenience was worth more. This was July 4th week!! PEAK SUMMER AND A HOLIDAY!
