Great View and location
Both elevators on property had a very strong overwhelming odor of a cleaning solution, but also operated well. The unit was not entirely as expected, the dining table was replaced with a standing bar table and two stools, very inconvenient to enjoy meals. The kitchen had a good supply of dishes, utencils, pans and bakeware, however there was not a cupboard to store food, we had to keep all on the counter or top of the fridge. The unit has not had a thorough deep cleaning in a very long time. The interior of each bathroom door was caked with buildup of lint and a sticky substance, and the floor molding was the same. The wicker furniture in the bedroom was also caked with dust and lint and smelled very musty. All in all, we made the best of the situation, even getting permission from the owner to bring the patio table and 2 chairs inside to use for dining. A very positive thing about the unit was the view of the gulf each day. The large TV (60") was nice but would have like a smaller one that would allow a dining table. The pool was said to be heated, but we were only able to use it 4 days due to the very cold temperature. The "heated" pool was one of the main reasons we chose this condo complex. This unit is more useful for a week stay rather than 2 months. We would not consider it again for long term.
We're sorry you were not happy with the unit. As for the lint build up, the lint filter of the dryer was overflowing when you left. Since the HVAC unit and washer and dryer are in the same closet, this caused the lint build up. Filter needs to be cleaned after each use. We thought we responded to all of your requests like the TV remote not working. Brought another one to you immediately then found out the original remote was working fine. We were never informed about the pool not being heated and if we had been, we would have contacted our association immediately.
Met Our Expectations
We have made 20 visits to the area over the last 25 years and this condo met our expectations just fine.
Home away from home
Everything was perfect. Dottie was very pleasant to work with and the condo was wonderful. It had everything we could have needed. Comfortable furniture in bedroom and living room and the kids enjoyed the bunk beds. We will definitely be staying again soon!
Nice home away from home!
The area, building, pool, and beach outlook were just lovely. Furnishings were okay--bed was comfortable, sofa and chairs were good. Only thing that needs "changing" is the dining provision indoors. Two no-back stools for the bar area and a small high-top table with two no-back hard stools made eating or working on a computer indoors uncomfortable. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay a lot.
Within walking distance to several area restaurants and directly across the street from Adventure Island. Grocery stores and souvenier shops within one half mile.
Numerous golf courses in the area.
