Has potential but comes in lacking

  • 3 of 5

The elevator was crap!! The internet code provided through homeaway is not working. Call the owner-Can we get the correct code? Well it's open no security so EVERYONE around was on it which made it horrible service even sitting next to the box! Also there were biscuits and bottles of water left behind on the bar in the kitchen. And someone spilt something on the wall in the bunk room on the top bunk wall to the right as you enter the room. Door was a little tricky upon arrival it took till the fourth entry of the code for it to finally unlock. Same each time we left and returned. It just made the turning sound the first three times so you may need some oil in the latch or something. There were stains on the ceiling and the furniture was old and worn out and let's not mention how bid the patio set up is! We were not informed of the parking pass extra $20 each car. It is really sad because the place has major potential but doesn't seem well kept.

Beautiful view from the balcony & overall good stay!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on a Monday & checked in with no problems. Our initial impression of the room was that it was nice. It didn't seem as clean as I would have thought but it was fine. There wasn't any problems that we noticed. The owner did tell me on the phone to make sure to put the shower curtain in the shower because the floor would leak but we never experienced any leaking. It was hard with the kids to make sure the curtain stayed in because it was just a stand up shower no actual bathtub. There were 3 different pools on the property & they were all super nice. It was an overall good experience & we will for sure be going back!

Nice place and location but not taken care of.

  • 2 of 5

Overall a nice condo but not a good experience. As reviewed before the bathrooms are all upstairs and the patio has no privacy. 4 condos share the overlook of the pool with a railing as the divider. Fridge was full of old food and the pantry with someone elses medicine. Bathrooms were dirty but they did have 3 towels each for our family of 5's four night stay. No washer and dryer in the unit and you will need to go up and down stairs to get to the elevator. I rented dozens of places and sadly this is the first place I wont be coming back to. If you do decide to stay here make sure you call and get the correct door code. I was emailed and text the wrong door code and was stuck calling someone late at night as I arrived.

Owner's Response: sorry to hear your stay was not a happy one, our split level townhouse style condo is great for the views of ocean and bay from both 3rd and 4th floors. yes, both bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs. our wonderful open view balcony does offer iron fence between condos only. our cleaning ladies are instructed to empty the fridge except for ketchup, jellies, etc. our condo comes stocked with 8 towels and has washers and dryers on each floor and thru out the resort. there are 8 steps to go up from the elevator around the corner. the cleaning ladies would have been sent back, if i would have known the condo was not acceptable, again, i am sorry to hear you stay was not the best.

The amenities were great, the room it's self needed some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

The place was beautiful. The kitchen area had a leak in the ceiling from the broken shower above it. The dishwasher did work but everytime it was opened it gave off a foul odor. The beds were uncomfortable. The grounds were kept up really well and the pools were really nice. The work out area was for cardio only; treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes. There is a $20.00 parking charge and wrist bands for the pool areas. No beach area directly across from the condo. You have to drive about 5 minutes to the nearest area, but go south if you want a quieter atmosphere and go north for the crowded beach. Every restaurant was good that we ate at. BRING EXTRA TOWELS you will want them.
