Not as Described

  • 1 of 5

We really enjoyed the building amenities and location, but not the rental unit.

We shared our time at this location with other family. They had rented a one bedroom near the top as a comparison. Their unit was very clean and very nice, whereas ours was not. With so many to rent from, we would not recommend this unit.

Oh, where to start? Best to offer up a comparison;

* theirs had a nice punch code entry door lock on a new door with internal blinds, ours had a swinging/banging key pad lock with two keys, one which did not work and both easily misplaced. Our door did not have blinds so passersby could easily look inside. The door was rusted, warped and creaked.

* theirs had a new sliding glass door on their balcony with a large handle that even the kids could easily open. Ours had a broken track and the adults had to use both hands on finger grips to eventually muster it open or close.

* theirs was clean, recently updated with very nice decor. Ours was simply gross. Sand was everywhere including between the bed sheets. Bed sheets and covers had disgusting stains.

* theirs had a nice wall mounted flat screen in the master bedroom whereas ours had an old tube style TV on a rickety, cumbersome dresser.

* the other had every possible kitchen utensil, pot, pan or appliance, accessory or spice you could think of. Ours? What kitchen?

If you rent this condo, you must bring everything you can think of that you normally need. We were not left with enough towels or washclothes. Bring hand soap, dishwashing soap, dishwasher detergent, body soap, paper towels, toilet paper, etc because there is little to none.

The amenities within the unit, that the renter brags up on, were simply not there. Above all, we hate being lied to.

As is typical with VRBO rentals, for the family that had joined us, they were directed all along by their renter. They were given directions, codes, etc weeks before they arrived. For ours, we had to keep hounding her and maybe, eventually, she might respond. It wasn't until shortly before arrival that we received the information that we needed.

We've been using VRBO for 14 years now with many vacations and out of all of them, this one has been the worst.

Owner's Response: Dear Michael, I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy our condo during your recent vacation. I wish that you would have contacted us with your concerns. In my email to you about your upcoming stay I provided you with my cell phone number so that you could have instant communication with me if you needed anything. I went back and looked at our communication during your stay. The only things that you brought to our attention was the missing Play Station 2 and a light bulb that was burned out. We were unaware that the Play Station 2 was missing. It must have been stolen by a previous guest. The cleaners don't always catch missing items of that nature when they are cleaning. They report items that have been accidentally left behind or any damages that have been left by guests. We keep extra lightbulbs in the unit and communicated with you where those could be found. We were never informed of the sand in the unit. We could have contacted the cleaning company and sent them back out. The cleaning company also leaves 6 towels and washcloths, two hand towels, a bath mat, and two dish rags. If that was not adequate for your stay, I wish that you would have contacted me and I could have requested that the cleaning company drop off extra. We are locals and are very responsive to our guests. We wish that you would have given us an opportunity to correct your complaints. I would also like to address the other items mentioned in your review. The front door has a bamboo shade. We also refinish the door twice a year. It was just refinished in March. The salty air at the beach will rust anything metal very quickly. The complex is responsible for the front door and sliding glass door. I will put in a request to see if we can have those items replaced. This is not something that we are allowed to do on our own. The photos on our VRBO listing clearly show that our television is on a dresser and not mounted to a wall. We are not trying to mislead anyone and I'm sorry that this disappointed you. Our kitchen is also equipped with dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc... We do not keep spices or anything consumable in our kitchen. Some guests would be turned off by that, as they don't want to put something in food that has been used by countless others. Again, I apologize that you did not enjoy our condo. We take a lot of pride in it and love staying there with our own family.

Exactly As Pictured!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! It has excellent views of the pool and lake that made it hard to go inside in the evenings. The private beach access was so convenient and having the outdoor shower was perfect after walking the beach. The GSSRC was close enough to town that we didn't have to go far to eat or shop. The staff was friendly and the facility was clean. Another reviewer mentioned the trash chute and the elevators being heard from the unit. You can hear them, but you must sleep lighter than a feather in order to be woken up by them. The kitchen utensils were stocked so well we didn't need anything there. They include dishwashing powder for the dishwasher as well as extra linens for the queen bed. We did have to purchase washing detergent and trash bags as those weren't provided. Overall, this place was fabulous and we look forward to staying here again in the future.

Great view and value

  • 5 of 5

Very nice view of pool and gulf from the unit. Convenient to the beach and lagoon fishing.

The only negative is that the unit is directly above the entire facility's trash chute so we did see some insects as a result.
