Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

Have stayed at GSSRC numerous times and never been dissatisfied but this was our first stay where the bedroom was less than satisfactory - the dresser was more like a jewelry armoire and for a 5 day stay I think a decent dresser or chest of drawers is a necessity since there really isn't space to live out of your suitcase. Most of the drawers didn't open and those that did weren't big enough to put clothes in. Cleaning was somewhat less than adequate, not a single trash bag or dishwasher detergent to get us started,. Will go back to GSSRC but probably not this particular unit.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and the complex, but it seems like you had a few issues. The inadequate cleaning and necessary starter supplies is troubling to us as we strive for the best and want the best out of our cleaners. This issue has been addressed with them, we just wish you would have called us upon arrival so we could have the rectify the mistakes for you. We passed along the feedback about the dresser to the owner to keep in mind for future updates to the unit. We hope to see you again soon for another great stay at this complex.

The property was perfect for my husband and I.

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this condo and even this complete property. Pool was amazing and even though the property wasn't directly on the beach, it was just a very short walk.

Will not be returning

  • 2 of 5

This unit is very nicely decorated & was very clean upon arrival, however this unit size is very small. Be prepared to walk into the main bedroom when entering the unit. There is also no door to the main bedroom. The laundry bifold doors will not close. The unit is in desperate need of upgraded kitchen cook ware & small appliances. The blender caught on fire on day one. We had to remove it from the unit to get the burnt odor out. The wireless connection is simply terrible at this facility, so be prepared to purchase additional data if you do not have unlimited. The facility (GSS&RC) is in desperate need of some upgrades. The hot tub was broken on the first day. Wing C's elevator was out of order the entire week. The filter on the pool was broken on day 4, which made the entire pool green. The pool itself was as warm as a bath. Several of the child saftey laches on the gates to the pool were broken.

The BBQ area is very nice, also the fishing/boat piers are very nice, however I don't believe we will be returning anytime soon.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear your stay did not go as you expected. The unit is a smaller unit, and as almost all of the units in the building were designed it does not have a door on the bedroom, but is separated from the unit by a hallway and kitchen. Unless upgrades to the original design have been made the units will not have a door on the master bedroom. We are looking into replacing some of the appliances and kitchenware, and wish that we had been made aware of the blender during your stay so that we could have replaced it for you. Unfortunately we have no control over the areas of the building outside of the unit. We can contact the association, but ultimately they are in charge of maintaining the elevators, pool, and other building wide amenities. It seems like they had the pool and hot tub working fairly quickly, and they are noted for having one of the nicest pools in the area. As for the elevator, there were two others in your wing that were working, and elevators are very slow to repair due to the safety issues that are involved with them. We hope you will return to see that your stay was not the normal stay for this complex or this unit.

Beautiful Immaculate Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a beautiful corner unit with a plus of two balconies overlooking the lagoon and gulf! Bigger bonus was the cloud like king size bed! I read a review that said the sofa bed was bad but the owners must have gotten a new one because it was very comfortable and not at all like most sofa beds! I would recommend this condo to any couple for a peaceful romantic getaway or a couple with one or two small children! I'm definitely coming back as this condo is the best one I've stayed in over the last few years!

Our room was beautifully decorated and had nice amenities. My only issues were the layout (bedroom has no door-you walk through it when you walk in the front door) and the mattress on the pull-out bed. It was very thin, and the kids could feel the bars right through it. Otherwise the room was wonderful. The pool was absolutely perfect, and we loved our beach access.
