Beautiful view!

  • 3 of 5

One of the two elevators was broke the entire week, at one point both of the elevators were broke. The pool & beach are beautiful.

Owner's Response: In your correspondence to me, you said that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the pool and beach are beautiful. Just prior to your stay, the elevator inspectors loaded 5000 pounds into the elevator to test it, and in doing so the plank that drives the brakes to the rails twisted and broke. Unfortunately the parts that were needed to repair it were not available and are on order. The second elevator did go down for a short time, but was repaired as quickly as possible. I regret that this happened, but am glad that in spite of it, you enjoyed your stay and only had one flight of stairs to ground level.

Convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Location is good, can use stairs vs slow elevator. Unit has keypad entry so no need to remember keys or get to the office for checkin. Very convenient. Be aware its near the trash pickup so you will hear that in the morning some days. The not comfortable. It has a 4 inch foam topper that is so soft you sink in 3.5 inches. No, I'm not a big guy. 5'11" 152lbs. After the 2nd night I had to tear the topper off and stuff it in the corner taking up valuable space. Minor repairs needed. About 5 light bulbs replaced and the livimg room fan wobbles.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed the convenience of the location and the keypad entry. I did ask you in two emails that you confirmed receipt of to contact myself or the housekeeper during your stay if there were any issues or if we could do something to make your stay more comfortable. We have a contract with the onsite management company and the light bulbs and fan would have been taken care of right away. Most people enjoy the comfort of the foam topper on the master bed, however there are those that enjoy a hard bed. I do advertise that this condo has a four inch foam topper on the master bed and have gotten many positive comments from guests. Again, if you had contacted myself or the housekeeper, it could have been removed during your stay.

Great vacation. Family had so much fun!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo. Very clean and inviting. Over looked the beach as well as the pool. And the chairs and umbrella that came with condo were great. My family had a wonderful time both in the condo, at the pool and on the beach.
