Not Disappointed At All!
Neptune's Retreat is so cozy and comfortable. It is clean and updated.
Casa del Mar property is very neat and clean. Beautifully landscaped and manicured. Plenty of parking covered and open. Right across the street from the beach.
I did a lot of research before booking and it was so worth it.
Extremely small and will NOT sleep 4
First and foremost, this property will NOT sleep 4 and BARELY sleeps 2. The couch in the living area is a pullout, but if you use it there will be no space to walk around. Secondly the bathroom is so small you cannot fit two people in there comfortably to get ready. I hit my arm on the wall several times trying to use the bathroom on my own and I am a 28 year old female in great shape who does not take up a lot of room.
In terms of pricing ... you're better off renting a hotel for that price.
The real estate office that handles this property is not the best. We had a warning placed on our car for parking, before we were told we needed to sign in with the front desk, in addition to going to the real estate company. When we dropped off our keys the reception desk didn't even acknowledge our arrival and preferred to talk amongst themselves about personal matters.
The pictures of this property are also deceiving, because they make it look much larger than it really is. The living room, kitchen and extended bar to eat, are all one area and not separated. The bedroom is very small. So small that we decided to put our bags in the living room instead, because there was no room to walk in the bedroom if we had placed them on the floor.
If you have allergies or cannot stand strong scents, don't stay here. Every time we walked in the door there was an awful musky smell that we couldn't get rid of. I think it was a spray used to make the property smell good, but it did the opposite. At least for us.
The positives about this property are that it was clean, the location was right off the main street and close to the beach, the pool was not overly crowded and the remodeling looked nice.
It is unfortunate that you were not totally satisfied with this unit, as it is one of the nicest, most upgraded units in Casa del Mar. I strive to provide guests with a condo that will provide a comfortable, enjoyable stay. You had an issue with the size of the unit, but the units in Casa del Mar have approximately 465 sq. ft. (with the exception of a small number of oceanfront units directly facing Seawall Boulevard which have slightly more length in the bedroom). All units in this condo complex have the same room layout. The photos posted on VRBO are accurate and clearly show that the kitchen, table bar, and the living area are all part of a common open area, and are not separate rooms. This unit definitely sleeps four, two on the queen sized bedroom bed and two on the sleeper sofa. That the size of the bedroom and the space available for "walking around" in the living area when the sleeper sofa is extended were not to your liking does not alter the fact that the unit does sleep four. While the bathroom is not considered spacious, its size is adequate. I am a 6 foot tall individual, weighing 238 lbs. and have never had a problem with the size of the bathroom. Again, all units in the complex share this design. I, as well as management staff, have visited the condo regularly before and after your stay and have never detected the "musky" odor you mentioned. Perhaps the previous renter sprayed something with that scent which lingered, or it might have been the scent of the sea air at the time. I appreciate your favorable comments about the remodeling, location and cleanliness of the unit.
