Palm Trees and Sunrises !!

This was our second stay at the Sea Gulls condo complex. Ideally nestled behind the Coral Shores High School at MM90 in Tavernier, the complex is surprisingly private and tranquil. Unit 209 is located on the 3rd floor and it provides superb views of the morning sunrise from its huge balcony. The unit itself is exactly how it’s portrayed in the photos. The Living Room has tile floor, a leather sleeper-sofa, and a very comfortable lounge chair. Understanding that this unit is a “rental”, it nonetheless could use a more “decorative touch” on the walls, especially above the TV. As compared to other condo rentals in this complex, the main living area sometimes felt a little bland and unappealing. The room also has a café-style table with bar stools, which we found odd and we really didn’t use. The Kitchen has table/chairs, tile floor, granite counter tops, and a new fridge. There are plenty of pots, pans, and dishes available for use. The Master Bedroom has a King bed, which was clean and comfortable. The attached Master Bathroom has a dual-sink/closet area which leads to an adjoining shower/toilet area. The second bedroom has a Queen-bed, decent closet, and you can access the balcony via sliding doors. We were a little disappointed that cable box for the TV in that room did not work (evidently, another renter had mentioned experiencing this same issue in a previous post). The 2nd bathroom was small, but it provided the essentials. We did have a little difficulty turning off the sink faucets, which again, was noted by a guest in a previous review. The walls in that bathroom need to be repainted and additional towel holders should be installed. Though the condo posting indicates that the unit comes with an iron and board, we never did locate the board. The pool at the complex is very clean and the TIKI huts were a big hit. The owners have two Kayaks available for use, which we used one day to explore the small Mangrove Key a few hundred yards off shore. All in all, we had a wonderful time at this condo and would certainly recommend it to those searching for a clean, quiet condo with awesome views!

Overall, it was a very quiet place. The unit was clean and the swimming pool area was very nice.

The condo was exactly as describe on VRBO. Very comfortable beds and pillows. The condo was clean. Had somethings that were very disappointing though. Every time the refrigerator ran it made an annoying growling noise. VERY disappointed in the patio furnisher on the balcony. Very uncomfortable. Two chairs for four people. Had to go buy two chairs.(Which we donated to the condo) Bathtub mat in first bathroom is wore out. One person in our party slipped and fell in the shower hitting their head. Faucets in first bedroom don`t shut off. We had planned on doing some cooking but when we notice how filthy dirty the oven was we decided it would be best we ate out every night. The frying pans SUCKED. The TV in first bedroom didn`t work. I give the overall experience a D.

Owner's Response: Had this guest contacted us these issues would have been addressed immediately. Unfortunately, the guest took furniture from the pool area and then denied it when the complex manager asked them to return it. Understandably, the manager was upset and my assistant had to go over to verify that they had indeed taken the chairs which was the first "confrontation" we have ever had with a guest - awkward. We have since had a plumber look at the faucets (they were working perfectly but are the kind that can turn on by turning either direction so can be tricky), replaced the refrigerator with a brand new one, and added new adirondack chairs for the balcony. The housekeeper usually checks and cleans the stove and has been reminded to be extra diligent. I cannot see what could be considered wrong with the frying pans.

Awesome view!

  • 3 of 5

Loved the view from the balcony and that you could acces the balcony from all three rooms. We were bummed that the pool wasn't open when we were there as we wanted to swim in the evenings to relax after a day of sightseeing! Looks like the pool will be very nice when it is done.

The property was very nice, however the pool was being renovated during our scheduled vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Soon after arriving at our rental, we discovered the on-site pool was being renovated. Upon notifying Holly, she took care of the situation. The next day, without a comparable rental to switch us too, she promptly gave us suggestions in the area and refunded our money. Holly was a pleasure to work with, and we appreciated her genuine concern to make sure our vacation was a happy one. Awesome customer service, I would highly recommend Holly Hight again.
