Guestbook comments from the owner

We "the Owners" personally deep cleaned this unit the last week of October 2015.

The floors/ baseboards were thoroughly vacuumed/ cleaned; the floors were also mopped and steam cleaned; oven/ stove cleaned; washed/ dried all blankets/ comforters. The linens (towels, bed linens) were replenished.

We also installed new crown mold in the living area; new lights were installed over the bar area; touched up wall areas with paint.

A beautiful view from a not so beautiful condo.

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a 4-day period in September and although we loved the view and the beach, we were not impressed with the condo.

Spacious, yes. However, contrary to previous reviewers, this condo is not in great condition anymore. When we arrived, there was sand on the floors like they hadn't been cleaned. The baseboards are dirty and closet doors weren't functioning in one room so we were unable to use the closet. The couch has huge tears. There was a big sign on one of the bathroom mirrors that said "Do not sit on sink" presumably due to the large crack in it that hadn't been fixed. The towels provided were paper thin - a few were dirty like they had been missed by the cleaning crew. The worst part was the first time my 6 month old son crawled on the floor he ended up covered in tile sealant (clear, shiny flecks) that was coming up off the floor. This meant our whole trip he could not crawl around unless a blanket was down - a tough task for a newly crawling baby ready to explore.

Although it was not well maintained, it definitely provided what we needed for vacation. The kitchen is well stocked and the dining area is spacious. The balcony is PERFECT. We spent most of our time out there. It is wide with two lounge chairs and a small table with 4 chairs with a direct view of the beach and water. Caution: It is directly above the pool and we could clearly hear the kids playing down there if that's something that would bother you. The beach was great and the chair/umbrella service is typical of the area except that they are much more welcoming of personal chairs and umbrellas at this location than others we have been at. The owner provides one set of chairs and an umbrella, which is nice.

Overall: Quality view, budget condo.

Girls Trip 2017

  • 4 of 5

Update coffee pot, need new towels (bath & kitchen) omit the hurricane! King bed was great, had plenty of kitchen utilities, wonderful patio & nice patio furniture! We had a great time and hope to come back. They had the hurricane shutters closed for two days , not needed, a little claustrophobic.

Amazing family time!

  • 4 of 5

Was a great spot to enjoy the beach with my family. I did learn about June grass in a bad way but, the water was still enjoyable. Next time I make a reservation I'll be sure to check the reports! Condo was set up well and in a prime spot. The islander was low key and had mainly families so that was nice. The owner provided beach service was an awesome bonus! Thanks again for a great time!
