Clean but outdated

  • 2 of 5

While the unit was clean it could certainly use some attention.

The front door lock doesn't fit properly and has a piece of cardboard covering the hole. Not a good first impression.

We bought groceries for our stay, as we have done before, only to find the cupboards padlocked! Really!

Thanks, by the way for supplying one towel per person.

The building's barbeque area was closed for most of our stay but no notification from the unit's owner.

The elevator was broken again.

Won't be returning to this unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. I'm sorry your stay didn't meet expectations. Your post-stay feedback is helpful as I strive to provide a great experience for all guests. However, I wish you had called or e-mailed me with issues when you were visiting. I can only rectify issues when I'm aware of them. I'll address each of the issues below: Need for updates: Have added new flooring, purchased new beds, and new dishwasher in the last 12 months. Planning to update the kitchen in the near future. Cupboards: I would have been happy to unlock for you if you had alerted me to the need for more storage space during your stay. Towels: Each guest was provided a bath towel, hand towel, and face cloth. There are additional towels in the laundry room. Community BBQ / Elevator: Common areas are down for maintenance from time to time. I alert guests when I'm aware of major maintenance projects. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware the community BBQ was temporarily closed. Thanks again for your feedback. Regards, Mike

Gorgeous view.

  • 4 of 5

This was our the best vacation we ever had. We celebrated my hubby 50th birthday whole two weeks. The condo was perfect for our family.Directly on the beach. Clean with everything you need. Starting with kitchen utensils to beach stuff. I was even able to bake birthday cake there. The special treat is this beautiful view from the balcony. We were able to watch dolphins and manatees swimming every morning during our breakfast on the balcony. We don't want to leave this place, but real life is calling. Hopefully we will be able to return next year again. Michael, thank you very much for letting us to stay at your place and being easy to reach.

Needed updating

  • 3 of 5

It was clean and bug free. It needed updating and we didn't like staying that high up. One of the elevators got stuck and the other one was jerky.

Wonderfull relaxing vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the condo it was clean and well maintained. Walk in closet a bonus. The views from the balcony were amazing. Grocery store and pharmacy right across the street. Mike is a pleasure to deal with. The kitchen had everything you need just like home. We will return again next year.
