Great, until elevator stuck on 3rd floor for one evening

  • 3 of 5

The condo is beautiful, with great views and minor interior issues within the condo itself. Please be advised, there is only one elevator in the building. If it goes out, and anyone in your party isn’t able to climb five flights of stairs, they are in a bind. Unfortunately, we found ourselves in this situation and the condo could not be fully occupied the night the elevator was out through no fault of our own.

On the positive, the owner did work fast to put part of my family in a two bed, one room hotel room for the night the elevator was out. This was extremely helpful to solve an immediate need on a very cold, rainy night with a handicapped senior citizen who can’t walk far. However, the lack of beds in hotel (2 vs 3 we needed) required my family to be split over the Christmas holiday. Further, we had the chore of moving large required items for our elderly family member down 5 flights of stairs that evening. And moving them back when the elevator was back in working order the next morning. This took hours out of our vacation. Please understand “wheelchair accessible,” as listed on their website, isn’t always the case. Additionally, the owner did state the elevator had been out a few days prior, so a reoccurring issue. This could be a major inconvenience at the least & safety concern at the other end of spectrum for any future renters.

Owner's Response: Good morning, I am sorry for any inconvenience to you  that resulted from the elevator being out of service  for few hours. That rarely happens here and unfortunately was something we could neither predict nor control. The repair team was called immediately and the elevator was back in service by 10:00 P.M. After your call, I immediately went to work, at your request, to locate and book a villa or Hotel that could accommodate your entire party.  Unfortunately because our Villa is pet friendly but many are not that was not possible so you decided to split your party.  We absorbed the cost of the hotel which, in fact, was much more than the one night villa rental. We are also sorry that you had to move required items up and down stairs. I had asked the front desk at the hotel to make arrangement for bell man service, and I had made you aware of that. We believe we did everything in our power to help deal with this situation and your enjoyment and lovely words about our Villa are greatly appreciated. We do hope that you will return, perhaps this summer when it is truly spectacular here.  To encourage you to do so  (and as a token of our understanding of your inconvenience) we will offer one  free night when you book  a week or more stay with us. We hope you are well and have a great 2018. Regards, Laily Schlegel

Amazing ocean front views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this place very much. We loved the 3 bd 3 ba so each couple had their own bathroom. All the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Amazing views from master suites, living room and large balcony (the unit is on the 5th floor). Tram service was excellent and resort restaurants were very good. The pool was a bit too cold to swim in for this time of the year and pump from the pool house seemed a bit noisy when we were out on the balconies. Overall,

great place and highly recommend it.

Quiet, Great View, easy to get to beach

  • 5 of 5

We were nervous as we knew that Irma was still being cleaned up, but the impact on Turtle Dunes was mostly gone. The floorplan was perfect, and they were very kind and thoughtful in things like hair dryer and curling iron, extra toilet paper, etc.. Not common with most VRBO we deal with.

Furniture was comfortable (wish a bigger TV in master bed room), and the bathrooms were user friendly.

Quiet, great view, and easy to get to beach and pool.

Painted Post

We had high expectations based on the pictures, and we were not disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property. We had a terrific family vacation with our adult children. 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms worked perfectly. The balconies, the view, the pool, the proximity to the beach, the benefits of being on the omni resort (island hopper, restaurants, pool, etc), and the dog-friendly environment left nothing to be desired. My son proposed to his fiancé on the beach, and we celebrated for hours with dear friends on the balcony. It was such a wonderful, memorable vacation!

Ocean view fantastic, unit lacking

  • 3 of 5

We spent a week with our daughter's family and liked this unit but didn't love it. The bedroom

doors are louvered allowing for little to no privacy. Also the overall cleanliness was not up to

5 star standards. Linens and bedding were very average quality. The pool and beach are convenient. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas to be set up for your use although beach towels are not provided. Overall a nice place not one that we would return to though.

Owner's Response: Dear Ann, I appreciate your feedback! I have already contacted our cleaning crew and we are making some changes to improve that. Also, we have considered your idea about replacing our twin beds with king size but have decided not to do that. Many of our guests have children and the twin beds suit their needs better. As far as the doors, we have this condo on rental with VRBO since 2009 and you are only the 2nd guest who felt their privacy was compromised by the louvered doors in the bedroom. Please take care of yourself and enjoy the rest of the Summer! All the best, Laily

Great Memories Created for Three Generations

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous location for multiple generations! With two grandchildren, two parents and two grandparents there is plenty of room for different activities both in the condo and on the plantation. The condo is roomy and very well furnished with many amazing views. The pool area is awesome! The beach is so convenient and no steps to cross over the sand dunes....can pull wheeled carts, etc. easily onto the sand. The beach is large and never crowded.......sometimes it feels private. There are several great restaurant options on the plantation from pizza to fine dinning. We have been to Amelia Island Plantation three years and the last two in this condo......hopefully many more to follow! Another huge benefit of this condo are the owners......they are amazingly helpful!! Thank you, Laily & Ghazal!!!

We look forward to have you here this coming Summer! Please give our regards to your family, stay healthy and happy. All the best, Laily
