                                                              Had a nice spring break trip here. Wife loved the cabinet colors in the kitchen and drove me crazy about it. Kids loved the pool & the beach wasn't too far. Found the house very clean and nicely decorated.

                                                              The pool was great and that was the best part of this property.

                                                              Batteries were missing from most remotes. The floors were filthy! Whoever cleans the property doesn't really clean it, there is dirt and built up grime throughout. The upkeep if the property isn't done often, so repairs are needed throughout. Upstairs sinks drain extremely slow. As the property stands, the price is not worth it. The beach isn't as close as the description leads you to believe.

                                                              Comfortable Home / Crowded Area

                                                              GOLDIE R.

                                                              The home itself was comfortable but we have a few suggestions. Its seems really inconvenient to cook without potholders. Its not enough to clean dishes with only one furnished dish towel, 2 dish rags & no scratch pad. I went out and purchased extras and left them for hopefully the next renter to use. No coffee filters?? Really! We have 6 days of coffee to make and I had to purchase a package of filters. I left them for hopefully the next renter to use. Two rolls of toilet paper per bathroom?? A family of 4 for a week- not enough! I purchased add'l and left the extra for the next renter! Where is the hose outside? Everyone around us had a hose to wash the sand off- we didn't have a hose! Parking - two per house... OK! But overflow parking may have had 15 places total at best. Never once could we find an empty space in there. You have a complex of nearly 50+ homes and you advertise for the overflow parking yet its not accommodating! We could barely squeeze our 3 vehicles into the driveway and then our friends couldn't visit our place because they had no where to park and if on the street the cops showed up at the house asking them to move to the "overflow parking"! The price we paid for the week... There is clearly no excuse for this! Home was beautiful and comfortable for our group of 11. The place could use a deep clean - Vents, ceiling fans, white trim - dust build up! And all the white baseboard trim needs a fresh coat of paint! The number to call for transport to and from the beach had terrible phone service and never once could hear us when talking. We used 4 different phones and every time the man would answer and say he couldn't hear us. There needs to be improvement to that offered service. And you need to furnish an ironing board! As far as comfort of the beds- WONDERFUL! Extra pillows were available but only one extra blanket located in the house! There were plenty bath towels & hand towels for each room/bathroom! I believe these changes will improve the overall experience for others and would encourage people to return to your home. Thanks for considering these recommendations!

                                                              Hi Goldie. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this lovely home. We’re happy to hear you found the beds comfortable and you had plenty of towels for each bathroom. We hope you got to enjoy the community pool. We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced here. We wish you would have contacted us on these issues, so we could have corrected them during your stay. We would of brought you extra toilet paper and coffee filters if requested. We will pass along your recommendations to our property management team, so they can assess and make recommendations to the owner. Thank you again for your feedback.

                                                              Nice location. Purpose built development of cookie cutter 2 and 3 story condos.

                                                              High density development. About 4-5 feet between each unit. Overall nice modern units. Only thing I would say is better attention to details such as cleaning, small amenities like trash bags, and better bedding (sheets, blankets, mattress quality).
