Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family would like to thanks Terrie for such a wonderful family vacation. It's not often you can rent a vacation home that is decorated and furnished with such luxury and style. It truly was more like being at home than just a rental. The home was equipped above our expectations as well as having amenities that made travel lighter (beach chairs and towels, a beach cart, sand toys) Terrie was a gracious and welcoming host and answered any and all emails promptly. Her inforation binder was not only filled with any info we could need, but done so in a witty manner. The location of the condo was PERFECT- overlooking the pool (which was never noisey) and a beautiful view of the beach. Both the pool and beach were immaculate and we enjoyed Pete's dedication to his job : ) We really can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was and are looking forward to next year already! Thank you Terrie!!

My Response

Thank you for your wonderful, honest and detailed review. It was so nice to hear the appreciation and the "feeling of being home" is exactly how I would like every guest to feel. It really is a family orientated , private beach community. It is well taken care of and our neighbors are friendly. I will be happy to host your family again next year and there will be exciting updates. As alway if you rent through VRBO and have a good standing rapport then next year you will receive a discounted rate. If you recommend a friend and they book through VRBO you will get an additional discount. Also think about renting on the off season, The Jewish Holidays, Columbus Day Week, Thanksgiving Week and Christmas Week are all still open and it is absolutely beautiful all year round. Take a deep breath and walk on the beach all year! Thank you Terrie

Owner's Response: Our family truly values our guests! I am so happy to read the wonderful reviews that our guests write week in and week out! I will say that these guests were extremely patient about a new policy of having to wear the pool bands at the pool and I thank you. The words "clean" are so important to us. Clean and comfortable really equals a relaxing experience . I would love to have you and your family as our guests every year to continue your wonderful beach vacation memories. I sure hope you can come take a deep breath in the near future. Terrie

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, the simple word "Beautiful" says a thousand words! I say it over and over, our guests are so important to us and we really try to make every effort to make it easy on our guest to enjoy their family vacation. Our beach is pristine with white powdery sand and newly resurfaced pool, our small year round beach community is friendly and safe with parking lot security, our incredible private balcony view of the pool and ocean is beautiful. I feel the newly renovated space, updated surfaces and "Beach Chic" decor really allows my guests to feel "beautiful" in a beautiful space on a beautiful beach. Thanks again, hope to have you as my guest again! Come take a deep breath and feel beautiful. Terrie

Great Condo and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I rented this condo for a week and it was perfect. We loved being ocean front! The unit is very clean and well maintained and nicely equipped with anything you might need. The owner is very responsive and helpful, we didn't have any issues. The location is great - the beach is not crowded, and there is plenty to do within a short drive. The pool area is also very nice, the only change is that they changed the pool rules so you are required to wear the pool wrist bands, not just attach them to a bag as we were initially told. Not a big deal though. It was really helpful to have beach chairs provided and a beach wagon or buggy to haul stuff down to the ocean - saved us room in the car! Overall we had a great time and will definitely come back next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Christine, thank you so much for your wonderful review! We truly value our guests and put every effort into making your vacation as easy and carefree as possible. My unit sits directly on the ocean with beautiful views of the ocean and the pool. Our year round community is friendly and quite. The beach is pristine and private! The unit has a Beach Chic decor with its beautiful porcelain wood plank floors, Sunbrella couture couches and hand painted burlap curtains, drift wood coffee table, sea grass rugs! This monochromatic color scheme is so relaxing. I truly have tried to think of everything. The kitchen and dry bar is equipped to throw a dinner party or eat out at the wonderful restaurants in the area. Getting to the beach is the whole idea, so yes there is a beach buggy, coolers, chairs and sand toys to take to the beach. Like I always say my family is tankful for our wonderful guest, guest who establish a good rapport will receive a discount on your next visit. I sure hope you and your family can come back and take a deep breath real soon. Terrie

A Very Nice Attractive Space

  • 3 of 5

We found this to be a very attractive space and enjoyed our stay there. The living room was delightful and the kitchen was also a very nice space. The bedrooms were made up and ready for us. It appeared as though the space had not been rented in a while. There was a fine layer of dust on most surfaces and it was clear the immediate rental supplies had not been checked in a while. There were towels in the dryer and the toilets had rings around them as though they had not been checked in a while. We did make an inquiry about the wifi and received an immediate response which was very nice and much appreciated. The TV in the master bedroom did not work although we went through the instructions that were left regarding the electronics. We did not inquire further about it since we were still able to use the TV in the living room. The construction in the complex started up at 8:00 each morning, however, that was nothing the owners had control over - it was work being done on the building and just happened to be right outside of our bedroom window. Short walk through the pool area to the beach which was quite nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. This is the first 3 star review I have received in 3 years. I do apologize if you were not pleased and any inconvenience you incurred. Communication is so important. If you would have called me upon arrival I would have had my cleaning company return for a full clean especially for the fact that there were guest the week before your arrival. As you are aware from my amazing reviews and my flawless 5 star rating thus far, I wish you would have communicated your dissatisfaction so I had the chance to correct the flaws. No one is perfect but I believe in giving someone the chance to correct things. A little dust could be easily corrected. Again I am sorry you were not happy with my space and I will contact my cleaning company and report your concerns. This will not happy again. I would rate this guest in communication area 1 star Terrie
