It was a nice place...a little dated but clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Property appears well-managed. We really didn't spend much time there but our particular unit had a real nice view looking west across the bay. Plenty of towels. Bathrooms are a bit small, especially the half bath. Never made it to the pool area or beach access. Check in and check out was easy and painless. Happy overall and would stay there again.

I am so happy you mentioned the easy check in and check out, we know your vacation time is valuable and should be spent on the beach and not in an office. Again, thank you and we hope to see you and your group again.

Rather dated, but bright, clean, and well located

  • 4 of 5

Although only my wife and I stayed here for a long weekend, it would easily accommodate an entire family. The unit really had everything you could want or need except for a dishwasher. Hats off to the cleaning crew because the level of cleanliness overcame the 'well used' appearance of the kitchen and baths. The Good: good location with direct beach access; great A/C; clean bright and fresh without any hint of mustiness or odors; comfortable bed; new clean range and fridge; if you want to prepare your own meals like we did, the kitchen is spacious with plenty of dishes and cookware (however, rather well-used and dated); nice views of town, bay, and fireworks; view of part of the beach from one corner of the balcony; the half-bath is a nice convenience when the bath with shower is occupied. The not-so-great: No Dishwasher; bathrooms, kitchen cabinets, and fixtures were well-used and could stand some renovation; the base of one of the bathroom vanities was rotted out and something of an eyesore but didn't affect our stay. The condo is not quite as big as it seems to appear in the pictures. The bathrooms are very small and the bedroom with queen bed was fine for us but could be rather tight for large persons or if you have a lot of luggage.

Owner's Response: Stuart, Thank you for this great review. It was a pleasure hosting you. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and that the condo was so clean. I know how importance cleanliness is to me when I travel so I make sure to provide that to our guests. I understand the condo is not as modern as some other condos on the island, but as you mentioned, everything was clean and in good working condition. What we offer to our guests is a great clean condo at an excellent rate. We pass the savings of this condo to our guests and make it as economical as possible. Again, thank you for choosing our condo, it was a pleasure to host you and hope to see you and you family again soon.
