Air conditioner problems but great view

  • 3 of 5

As soon as we arrived it was 80+ in the condo. We immediately called the number given to us and asked for someone to come out. They sent someone about two hours later only to tell us they are going to throw some freon in it but there is a big frown leak somewhere between our condo (8th floor) and the roof top. They said that recharging it would get us through the night but they would be back the following day to find and actually fix the leak.

That never happened. They never came back. Apparently it's a slow leak because we did get through the next four days without an issue. From other reviews it seems as though they keep putting a band aid on a big problem. Which in turn people keep having AC issues when they arrive. I don't find that fair. With as much money as people are paying to stay here it would be nice if you guys would fix the issues and not have people with small children sitting in a hot condo (unless ur going to provide discounts).

With that being said. We do have small children. 1 year old and 4 year old. The carpet is DISGUSTING. They really need to put tile or hardwood in this place. We made everyone leave flip flops or socks on the entire time. But with small children who play on the floor a lot. This was very gross and seemed unsanitary.

Other than that. The house was fully equipped. Had a great view. Beds were comfy. Paint on Cabinets in kitchen (as previous reviews stated) are peeling pretty badly...but that didn't bother us as much as others.

This place has great potential to be an amazing vacation spot. Fix the carpet and get the air conditioning fixed are the two issues.

We did enjoy our vacation after the initial sweat box day when we arrived. Probably wouldn't rent again unless carpet and ac is redone. :)

Great price

  • 4 of 5

Great pricing for a 2 bedroom and really pretty view! Kitchen needs updating though, paint peeling a lot on the cabinets and stuff but other than that it was a pretty nice place to stay.

Great view and location, Nasty carpet, no WIFI

  • 2 of 5

We loved the view and the great location but WOW! This place needs some help! The carpet had a permanent black path to the balcony and bedrooms and was actually sticky feeling to walk on with bare feet. Probably explains why there is a black path on the rug...no one wants to walk bare foot on this nasty carpet unless you have hooves. The Kitchen was clean but the cabinets have peeling paint everywhere which we didn't care but taping over with white duct tape in the bathrooms was a bad repair job. Kitchen had everything except there was not one single sharp knife to be found. We grilled one night and had to use the butter knives to cut our steaks. Good thing they were good steaks! We bought a pineapple but could not cut it at all. There are some kitchen scissors that we used to cut lettuce but nothing that even remotely resembled a sharp knife. You won't poke any eyes out with sharp objects here. We even used the kitchen scissors to cut pizza. Not even a pizza cutter. Unless you have beaver teeth to gnaw a pineapple open the salvation army silverware was terrible. Our WIFI did not work so we called the number we received with REAL JOY booking and it was disconnected! Also there is a paper in the unit with the same number to call if issues in the unit. We ended up calling the main desk in the unit and a nice man from pelican Beach resort came and said there is no WIFI even though there is a router on the counter, it is not connecting so he gave us the password to the unit below us and somehow got in touch with REAL Joy. Our Air conditioning did not work the first night so the nice man somehow got a hold of Real Joy and told them. Someone did come and said the breaker was flipped but that did nothing so he called again later and sent them back. He then said the condenser was clogged and fixed it then. Real Joy Realty then called back, I think his name was Michael. He could have cared less when I mentioned the carpet and no mention of fixing the WIFI at all. Great location and the view, but we had friends staying in the same building who booked through Pelican Beach Resort and had the same price as us and their unit was so much nicer. My advise is book through them. It would only take a day of lost income renting this unit to steam clean the carpet. Oh and we did buy a sharp knife at Walgreeens and left behind so you don't have to gnaw open your pineapple. Unless you have hooves for feet and beaver teeth or don't care rent from Pelican Beach Resort

Good place to stay, some noise issues

  • 4 of 5

Good location with a five minute walk to the beach. No traffic light at entry to resort so had to make u-turns frequently in getting out onto west 98. Could hear chairs scraping on floor of unit above ours. Bedroom near door had issues with hall light and window blinds, also noise of people walking by. Several cosmetic issues with cabinetry and walls. Furniture on balcony in terrible disrepair and needs replacing. Overall did have an enjoyable stay, just listing things that might bother other renters. Please replace cushions on balcony furniture or get new furniture for balcony!
