Smells like mold

  • 1 of 5

This condo really could use some help. The entire condo smells like mold and the carpet is very dirty. The mattresses are worn; they are the kind that sag in the middle and jiggle every time you move, really soft. Also, the sliding glass door handle on the outside is broken. When we arrived at 6:30 pm, there were no paper towels, dish towels, dish soap, garbage bags, dishwasher powder, and, worst of all, no toilet paper (it was a long drive). We left to have dinner and purchase the missing items. When we came back, the missing items had been placed in the condo. The bathtubs did not have stoppers. The top two shelves in the refrigerator was covered in water. When we left the condo, I was stuffy due to mold allergies. Very disappointing.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, we hope you enjoyed the fantastic view of the Gulf waters and beautiful sunsets from the spacious balcony in this lovely condo.

Super clean!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the condo and the view was perfect! Only issue we had was that some condos provide complimentary chairs with umbrellas but if not then you have to pay 30 dollars a day to sit infront of your condo in the beach, we had to walk down to the public beach access to set up to sit on the beach. Other than that this was a great place, curtains got fixed and no light gets in to wake you up now.

Perfect for a beach stay!

This was a quiet area for December. Nicely decorated. The balcony had an amazing view. The unit was bigger than I thought. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. I would stay here again.

Clean, quiet, roomy, and friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo and it was very clean. We had plenty of towels to use through our stay. The view from the balcony was breathtaking! On our second day there we discovered that the dryer wasn't working, so we called and they said they were aware but were were waiting on a part to come in to repair it. The dryer wasn't fixed during our stay which would have really been inconvenient, however they came to the condo and picked up all of our dirty laundry which with 6 people on vacation was A LOT, had it all washed and dried, and the next morning brought it back to us, neatly folded! Will definitely recommend to other people and will stay there again! The building was quiet also, very nice!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an excellent stay at the Nautilus. The rooms were fully furnished and all the kitchen supplies were supply. The condo was off the beach and the view of the Gulf from our room was magnificent! We enjoyed our whole stay! I would definitely stay there again.
