Last minute trip.....was awesome😀

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo the night before we arrived. Ms. Nancy was so quick to respond and very professional. She took care of us from booking, to arrival, departure, and even our deposit was returned immediately. The condo was great for our small family (2 adults and 2 small children). Amazing views

and loved the location. We can not wait to return. We would definitely book this condo again if available.

Amazing location, friendly people, great price, but unit needs a little TLC

  • 3 of 5

If you want to be away from the throngs of tourists, and have a nice relaxing time with your family, this little unit and the Plantation is a great place to stay. Such easy access to so many beautiful amenities, and the unit is on the first floor, facing the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. The five pools, tennis courts, work out room and basketball courts were put to great use and the folks using the amenities were really nice.

Having the biggest pool right outside was great, but also takes away from your privacy a bit as folks are right outside your door all day. Lots of folks were playing bags and smoking right next to our patio, so perhaps think of staying a floor or two up.

The bedroom is nice and bed is comfy, and the bed in the hallway would be good for a small child. The couch was comfy for my 16 year old, and the little kitchen was a bonus as there are not many close dining options. The bathroom was clean, and the shower was great, too. The porch fit four people and again - the view was amazing. The AC worked great, and when it rains you can't hear a thing - very well insulated.

However, the unit really needs some basic TLC. The microwave does not work reliably, the door hinges need oiling, the doors and baseboards need a good cleaning as there were dirt marks and goey hand prints everywhere, the screen doors and windows need repair, and were falling off, and the couch and bed linens need a good cleaning and scrubbing. The floor was really dirty and sandy - I can see how it happens, but it was very dirty when we arrived. In addition, having one or two little tables or bookshelves in the hallway to place items on would be nice as we had to put our things on the floor (which gets very sandy as we enjoyed the beach). Also, the TV remotes batteries were all dead, so we had to buy new batteries. Having a couple of batteries on hand, as well as scissors and a screwdriver would have been handy, too. The parking lot was sand and gravel (they are getting ready to pave it) so there was a lot of dust and working going on. The washer and dryer are communal and you need a credit card to use it. Bring plenty of your own supplies (TP, trash bags, Kleenex, wipes, dish soap, shower soap, laundry soap, dryer sheets etc) as there is no close place to purchase.

All in all, for a 4 day vacation and the price, we were happy, but I'd recommend a really , really thorough spring cleaning first, and lots of little minor repairs first.

Owner's Response: Sorry you found our unit in need of cleaning. We stayed in this unit all January and painted all the baseboards in the unit and the walls in three rooms. I have a hard time believing from Feb. 1- March of your stay they became gooey and had dirt marks. We did contact our cleaning company and asked them to clean all bedspreads, shams and to have our sofa re-cleaned. All this was done by us by Feb. 1 but maybe by the time you checked in in March it needed to be done again. Many of the things you mentioned like the washer and dryers are described on our web site and we say they use a credit card and that the washers are a few steps away in the hall. Our "Directions" that we send you before check in says that you get starting supplies of toilet paper, soap, Cascade and paper towels but that you need to supply them after that. The Pines Grocery is a 3 minute drive away. You called us about the screen door off the hinges on a weekend and on Monday we had maintenance come fix it. Sorry but the salt air at the beach takes its tole on metal screen doors and from time to time they have be fixed. We do place batteries in our units but they sometimes disappear. People use them for their own personal items and then the next guest doesn't have them. Sorry. We try to think of things people might need. There are light bulbs in the corner cabinet, night light in the bath etc. Again things do get used. This unit was fully stocked when we left Feb. 1. The parking lot is now brand new, repaved and striped and looks gorgeous. I am sorry for the inconvenience while you were there. The project was started in Dec. and was supposed to be finished by Feb. but they ran into problems- electrical lines underground that weren't known about and they had to take longer to work around those things. As an owner we had no control over the schedule and I am sorry it ran longer than they originally told us. We will get with our cleaners because we expect out unit be cleaned properly by them. They have done a good job for us for four years. I am sorry if you felt the condo was not up to your expectations. If you had contacted us we would have gotten them to the unit to do a re-clean. We want our guests to be satisfied.

Owner's Response: Sorry you did not like the bathroom. The shower head was put on new two years ago when we updated to a full walk in shower. Toilet needs updating? All one bedroom units at the Plantation are small and just as pictured on line.

Beautiful View!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls long weekend and because of Hurricane Irma we booked this condo at the last minute. After leaving we felt me might have difficulty finding a hotel room on the drive down because of the hurricane so we decided to try and book the condo for that night. The property owner, Nancy, was easily reached by phone and she made this happen very quickly! We very much enjoyed the condo. We liked the first floor entrance with parking right at the door. We, also, liked the keyless entry. You are given a code unique to you and it makes entering and exiting the condo very convenient. The condo was very clean and had plenty of bed linens and towels to accommodate the four of us. The pool and beach were beautiful. We will definitely rent this condo again!
