Excellent location, but condo needs maintenance
The condo is so nice being so close to the water, beach, etc. Spacious rooms, skylights, great master bathroom. The pool is nice and the neighbors are friendly.
We got past the issues of bath towels mixed up with the rags and finding all sorts of excess stuff in the freezer.
However, there are some maintenance issues that you we passed on to the owner:
We previously mentioned the chair glides in the dining room. We put the chair with the protruding nail at the head of the table, where it originally was found. But note that there are two or three other chairs with at least one glide that's damaged.
The back side of the peach room's door panel appears to have been kicked in.
The peach room also has a window that opens with difficulty. Yes, there is a note that indicates that it's broken, but there were times that we needed to open the window.
Also in the peach room, one of the two bedspreads is torn and repaired with Super Glue. We noticed that when we washed the bedspread.
We were disappointed in the hot tub (spa) near the pools. Some days it was cold. At the end of our stay, it was closed. We heard from the neighbors that problems with the hot tub have been ongoing for months. We understand that the owner doesn't have complete control over that situation, but the condo is advertised as having a spa.
We noticed that the kitchen sink's drain goes down slowly, especially when the dishwasher is running. Also the outside (guest) bathroom drain went down slowly when simultaneously draining the sink.
It was nice to have the land line phone available, but there are problems with portable phones; specifically, one has no batteries and another's batteries are almost dead.
Some of the fluorescent light bulbs in the kitchen are burned out or flickering; they need to be changed. We had some difficulty doing that but unsure what the cause was.
The toaster doesn't work very well -- it burns toast unless you manually pop the bread out.
We are sorry your stay was not 100%. However, some of your issues were a matter of bad timing with the phone batteries, light bulb, and spa which we have no control over. We do not live here so we may have not been informed from previous renters or our cleaning service of anything wrong. We went out of our way to accomodate you on some special reqests such as two new shower heads when there was nothing wrong with the shower heads that we had. As far as the rug which was put in two days prior to your arrival. We were unaware of any problems with the glides. We have been renting our unit for many years to professional athletes and return renters. We have never had any complaints and only great feedback. In looking back we hope you have good memories of your stay by the beautiful ocean and not of a few minor inconveniences. Thank you.

Totally enjoyed the condo! Upon arriving we immediately went to the balcony and loved the view. Then we took in the vastness of the place. HUGE! The pictures don't do it justice! Everything you would need was there (I goofed when renting the place - I assumed there would be beach chairs, but there were none in the add - I would have brought our own, so went out and got some) Lots of spare linens, towels, beach towels. We didn't use the pool, but I tested it and the water was warm. Security wasn't a problem as there were codes for access to elevators, and pool+wharf areas. One mile south was a large grocery and drug store, and a few miles further a Walmart Superstore. Lot's of shopping and eateries on Gulf blvd near the condo. My daughter came for the 2nd week and just loved it as did my cousin & husband (from Kissimmee), brother & wife (from Ft Myers) for the last weekend. We all had a great time and would definitely return if available. There was one drawback - the entire building was being repainted and they just happened to be on the beach side when we arrived, in front of our unit, so we had the scaffold ropes in our view for a week and had to bring in the balcony furniture every night.
La Contessa is located in the small village of Redington Beach which is the perfect combination of laid-back and lively with every amenity you could want nearby. It is minutes by car from shopping malls, movie theaters and just about any national chain you can think of. If you would rather not leave the island, there is a trolley that runs the full length of Gulf Boulevard from Clearwater to Passe-Grille for a few dollars with stops close to scores of grocery stores, restaurants, bars, shops, marinas, and the list goes on. La Contessa is located directly across the street from a well maintained park with basketball court, tether ball, shuffleboard, playground equipment, shelter & picnic tables. Also well maintained, lighted tennis courts are only 2 blocks away.
