Beautiful and quiet retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Blue Wahoo. The furnishings were beautiful, it was clean, and we could tell a lot of care has gone into making this a great rental. The location was great - close to everything but far enough away that it was quiet and less congested. We had no problems getting in/out of the condo or walking across the street to the beach safely.

We did experience a few (fairly minor) issues though. First, I am an information security professional, and I was quite disappointed that the Wi-Fi password was openly available with no password protection. Please please please get this locked down with the facility management or set up your own (secured) Wi-Fi router. This is just asking for someone to steal your and your guests' personal information. It was practically useless to me.

Next, we did notice ants in the kitchen sink area as soon as we arrived, but we couldn't locate the source. They were present throughout our entire visit no matter how many we drowned, smashed, or otherwise killed. There was no ant killer beneath the sink....only more ants.

Also, we used the toaster 1 time to make toast. The toast had not even finished cooking when the fire alarm went off. We quickly opened the sliding door to get fresh air into the room, and it did go off quickly. Our first night there (Dec. 30), it was quite cold, and we attempted to run the heat at 69 degrees. This, too, set off the fire alarm because it seemed it hadn't been turned on and there was some dust maybe being burned off. Rather than alarm other guests or management, I quickly turned the heat off, and we all bared it throughout the night. That wouldn't have been *quite* as bad if there had been a few an extra blankets or two in the condo. Unfortunately, there was only the thin cover on the bed and the blanket for the couch (which we were using), so there were no extras to be had.

The couch, when used as a couch, was extremely cozy, but using it as a bed was absolutely miserable for everyone who tried it. We ended up just sleeping on it as the couch rather than as a bed.

These things really didn't deter us from having a nice, relaxing time. Assuming these issues get taken care of, I would absolutely recommend this condo to others. Great location, we enjoyed the view of the ocean, and even with our cloudy days, it was better than any day at work. ;)

Great location to beach, shopping, restaurants,golf and more!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had all the conveniences we needed for a week. The property had great access to the beach the outdoor showers to rinse off were a great feature.

Will definitely go back. The unit was more of studio, the bedroom was separate but not private no door. Fine for a couple or small family though.

Nice & relaxing. We enjoyed our stay. The room is small and very cute. Decorated nicely.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our small getaway. Very relaxing. Room was very nice and decorated cute. The bed was a little rough on the back. Only unpleasant thing was being woke up at 6 due to other rooms being renovated. Very unpleasant to hear saws and banging all through the morning & day. Definitely recommend though. The pool and hot tub was nice as well
