Very nice, clean, & safe

  • 5 of 5

We go every year to Myrtle Beach and this year we decided to switch it up and went to Florida. We had a great time. Condo was wonderful. It met all of our needs. We took a vote and decided to keep coming back to this condo each year.

Pros: Clean, well equipped (we did a lot of cooking), plenty of room, plenty of plug ins, TV was good, however, could not get DVD player to work (PS3 system), large patio with beautiful views, easy to get to actual unit on property, beach was very quiet and private

Cons: Sofa -older - has slight trough in back so harder to get out of, Dining room table the stool type which was hard on our legs- because we played a lot of cards. However, it was huge which was great.

Relaxing and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped kitchen with appliances and kitchen items. The only down side to the condo was the shower. It was a little difficult to get the temperature regulated. Not a long walk to the beach and the beach service was great. It was close to various attractions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review...we are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. I regret that you had a problem with the shower. I would have taken care of it during your stay if I had known about it. The shower is now working properly. Thank you again, we hope you will return again.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. We regret that you felt the condo was in need of attention but wish you had contacted me while staying there. I Always ask our renters to contact me upon arrival if they find anything that is not satisfactory..... If I know about any problems/ concerns I can then timely address and correct the issue. Our cleaning staff clean/mop the condo floors between each renters stay. All soiled towels and linens are removed from the condo and replaced with clean towels/linens. The tile floors in the condo were deep cleaned and waxed as of October 20th. We replaced the worn couch with a brand new leather Broyhill Queen sofa/sleeper. The closet door has also been repaired. The condo is clean, comfortable and renter ready. Come be our Guest!
