Good, but needs a few updates and a better pool.

  • 4 of 5

We booked this property last minute for our anniversary trip. The condo could definitely use a few updates and it would be perfect. There were two instances when we saw a roach in the living room and kitchen so I'd recommend getting pest treatment for the shelter owners. The dryer kept shooting out lint into the shower but everything worked properly. There was no fan in the master and the plug in fan gotten from the closet no longer works, so we bought a box fan to stay cool while asleep. The pool is indoors and was freezing the whole time due to not being in direct sunlight :(. lastly, I would get better patio furniture with a table to put your coffee or eat breakfast on.

Pros: wonderful view from the patio and it's a walkout room, clean grounds, clean pool, great beach service and you can rent paddle boards or kayaks. Condo is very beachy and loved the colors, bed was decent, plenty of towels, beach is super private! Easy area to drive in/out of and close to everything.

The best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

The location of A3 was great! Just walk out the door and your feet are touching the white sand! I have stayed at Crystal Villas three times (different condos), and it seems to be my favorite place to stay. Wish I could stay forever! There were a few very minor things that needed a small repair, but the condo itself was great!

Great location, great beach.. But it stops there.

  • 2 of 5

The owners of this condo do little or no maintenance. The air conditioner vent in the bath room leaks water all on the floor, you have to put a bucket under it! The mattresses are old and hard. The bath tub has mildew, rust, is old and needs repair. I own nightly rentals, I hate to leave a review like this but the owners need to know. I don't think the management company does a good job. At a lower price, you might take the bad with the good. As I stated the beach is great. But at the price they charge, you should expect more.. These were just the bigger problems, I could have gone on about the little problems.
