Great vacation

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice. 4 bedrooms all nice sizes & clean. Plenty of towels & sheets. Very convenient location. Everything you need across Galt Drive ,from dry cleaner to nail salon to NY deli Pool was great & the beach nice

The outside deck of condo is spectacular

Downsides are the sound of elevator motors , goes from 6am to way past midnight. One toilet wasn't working but we didn't need it so I didn't report

Yes I would vacation there again. We all loved it

Owner's Response: Great to hear they had an amazing time. Without that we wouldn't rent this unit. Only wish we knew about the toilet. turns out the cleaners found it when they cleaned and was caused by a building main clog between floors that took a few days to address. There is one bedroom closest to the elevators that you do hear the hum of the elevators but we have found that most people tune it out within a very short time and don't even notice it the 2nd day. Although the unit is great as is, we continue to improve and upgrade.

Awesome view and the owner is a pleasure to deal with.

  • 4 of 5

Its a nice sized apartment with a spectacular view. Full kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and laundry machines. The apartment it self shows wear and would benefit from some updating. Master bedroom AC was not working and some of the doors didn't lock ( bathroom door and the main door to the balcony, which is adjacent to the next apartment's balcony). The penthouse next door had a major party on Friday night and the whole place smelled like pot and the music went till all about 3AM. The next night when it started again, I notified Mike, the owner and he took care of it and was very apologetic. All in all it was a nice place if you are looking for room to spread out and you appreciate a fantastic view. We just hope the place gets a little more TLC before we go back.

Owner's Response: These guests were great. Just wish we knew about the party sooner as we would have intervened to avoid the first night. There is a 10pm noise ordinance in Lauderdale so the condo owner was fined by Broward county police. The guest prior to them accidentally bent the slide lock to the balcony so I visited the unit right after these guests checked out and replaced the lock. The mast bathroom is inside the mast suite so its locked out from others in the unit. Havnt had that requested to be locked before but an easy enough fix. These guests did tell us that the AC wasn't working despite just having a new AC capacitor installed so on 1/29 we had an entire brand new unit installed and its been operational ever since. Comfort is of the utmost importance to us so we took care of these issues immediately. The couches, comforters, towels, patio furniture, dining room table and chairs, linens, dishes, and silverware are all less than 2 months old. The furniture is all less than 4 years old. The baths have all been remodeled over the last 3 years. Paint will be coming soon to change the color. Other than the kitchen cabinets needing a little updating we would like to hear what other TLC is suggested so we can put it on our list. Looking forward forward to having them again. We are ALWAYS looking for ways to improve.

Quick get away

  • 5 of 5

Had an opportunity to get away to some warmth and found this unit on VRBO. All I can say is , WOW. Clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds. Everything in the unit worked perfectly, including the air. Mike was easy to work with and recommended some excellent dining experiences. Short walk or drive to great beach side dining and nightlife. The sun deck was private and extremely relaxing. Loved the master bath with the multiple shower heads. Beach was manicured daily, and there was service available from the tiki bar staff. Very relaxing and comfortable stay. Wonderful stay and would recommend this penthouse to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Well we couldn't have ordered them better weather and that certainly doesn't hurt. Cant take credit for the great Florida weather and amazing views nature provides but we do our best to ensure the unit is in top shape and people have a great time. Wish everyone was as honest and friendly as most of our guests but that's people I guess. These guests were great and hoping to have them back.

Girls vacation

  • 5 of 5

Large penthouse and sundeck that slept 11 comfortably. The property was clean and well maintained. The tiki bar was fun with good food. We had beach service for both food and drink. Beach was clean and safe with no solicitors.

Penthouse: Upgraded amenities. Granite kitchen with ample cookware. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms with ample linens and beach towels. The pictures on the website for the property were a true and an accurate representation of the unit. The sundeck was awesome. Our flight got in early and we contacted Mike, who was easily reachable, and assisted us in getting into the unit early.

Surrounding areas: We were able to walk to shopping and dining areas easily, on well lit, safe sidewalks. The oldest member of our group is in her mid 60's and it was less than a one mile walk to everything we needed. Take the water taxi to get to the Las Olas shopping area.

Owner's Response: Once again, it looks as though the efforts we put in are paying off. Look for the pictures to change as we continue to upgrade the unit. We are never satisfied making the unit nicer! Very happy to see all 11 women enjoyed themselves. That is our goal.

OLD friends

  • 5 of 5

Large penthouse/deck was perfect for four old friends going to the boat show. Large bedrooms (renovated) very comfortable. The tiki bar and restaurant in the building were also terrific as were all the people servicing those facilities. Great time!

Owner's Response: His review was like his stay....short! Glad we could accommodate for the boat show. We have always kept the unit updated and we just added brand new sofas and patio furniture, not to mention the luxurious Hotel Collection towels and bath mats. Next on the upgrade list is new custom paint colors! Much more planned over the next few months too!

This location is absolutely perfect. Not on the main busy strip of A1A, we are on a more private street with mostly residential buildings. Across street from major brands like McDonalds, BOA, Winne Dixie, etc.
