About Mike Dichard

I have owned this property for 27 years and have been renting this property for 27 great years. I come down myself with my wife twice a year. I have done numerous upgrades as I believe that you must keep you condo fresh and looking new and renters will appreciate what they have when they rent this unit and will take care of the condo as if it was their own

Mike Dichard purchased this condo in 1986

Why Mike Dichard chose Crescent Beach

I purchased this property as I was in the golf business for 10 years as a shop owner and teacher. I do come down and play golf and enjoy the weather as I am from the north and yes with cold and SNOW so it is enjoyable to visit. I have seen many, many changes in this area for many years mostly for the better I have to admit. I always get surprised to what new changes are being done every year I come down.

What makes this condo unique

When I purchased my condo the biggest benefit that my wife and I had was the ocean being so close to us. We have 2 boys and at the time they were young and I played golf so I would head to the golf course in the morning and my wife would head to the beach right across the street with the boys in tow and spend 1/2 the day at the beach until I arrived back from my golf match

Nice Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

We had difficulty with WiFi all week, which made it impossible to get my school work completed. The owner was helpful, it was just not a problem that could be easily resolved by phone. On the other hand, the home was nice, the rooms were spacious, the kitchen and utilities were all in working order and the screened balcony was a very nice touch. Of course, the pool area, and beach were great! My family had a wonderful time together in this home.

Owner's Response: Appreciate the great review. I am sorry about the WI-FI. It is only set up for a lap top computer and not for the other items that you cannot plug the cord into. I tried to get the hook-up on Monday but they said they may to go out to the condo and set it up and be charged for a service call then go back out at the end of the week and get it back to the original for a service charge. Sorry just to costly for 1 week. I am going to add in my description of the property that it will only work with a lap top machine. Glad all else was fine. Mike Dichard, owner

C18 was nice

  • 4 of 5

Pros:The condo was clean as advertised. Close, easy 2 minute walk to to the beach. I actually liked the walk to the beach better than waiting for an elevator at an ocean front place. Everything we needed was in the kitchen to make meals and the stove, microwave, fridge, dishwasher are all pretty new and work fine. Pool is really nice and very clean. Cons: Parking is tight. During our stay the internet was not very reliable and was on and off our whole trip. The sockets in the bathrooms don't work. The ceiling fan in the screened balcony didn't work. The sliding glass door to the balcony was hard to slide open and I was the only one able to open it. There are signs posted in the room that the owner's management company will address issues like this but who wants repair people in their condo working while on vacation? All in all a nice place and I'd stay again.

Owner's Response: Hi, sorry about the minor problems you had. I know that I was there in May and I made sure everything worked. The fan in the screened balcony does work you have to turn the switch on from the inside and make sure that the pull chains are on outside. I'm a little befuddeled about the sockets in the bathroom not working. As they did in May. I will check. The sliding glass door I have cleaned and greased every May and Oct when I'm down there. The glass door is hard even for me but that is because of the salt weather that is at the beach. Only alternative is to remove and replace(costly $3,500.00). Parking is a little tight but within 25-20 feet there are spaces with no numbers on them that any tenant can use which makes an easy entrance and exit for parking. The internet has always worked great. If you have a lap top then the yellow cord that is there needs to be plugged into the lap top unit. If you are using another device then you are right you have to call the number in the draw and get hooked up with frontier for your device. Hope this answers all the cons and hope to see you again. Thank you for your input this helps with future renters and what I need to tend to in October. Mike Dichard owner

Unit was great in all aspects. We didn't lack for anything, very clean and comfortable. Across the street from sun and sand. Really helps make vacation stress free when you have a great place to stay. Sally and Mike, thanks for everything.
