Very nice experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were not able to stay due to my wife's illness. While at Disney I believe she over done it and an issue with her leg flared up. We did purchase the travel insistence and the entire process was very kind and professional. Mrs. Kim and all the folks at VRBO seem so nice. I look forward to traveling somewhere for our winter trip.

Beautiful, clean condo with a wonderful view and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay at this condo! It was so pretty, we each commented on how nice and tastefully it was decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms were big with comfy beds and plenty of towels and linens. We were especially happy that they provided beach chairs so that we didn't have to pack those. Kim was so nice and helpful with checking in and checking on us and making sure we were settled. It made things go so smoothly. We loved the location of this condo! We thought it was nice that it was a smaller condo unit instead of those sprawling resorts. When we had to go back up to the condo for snacks to bring to the beach, it took minutes and felt so close. We loaded up all the kids to go to The Hangout and realized we could have walked we were so close! We loved being right on the beach. And we loved the unit's pool. It was big enough to not feel crowded but small enough to feel safe with the young children in our group. There were several times that we even had it all to ourselves! We definitely play to be back and have already recommened it to our friends! Thank you so much for such a great time!

Great trip

  • 4 of 5

Great views and we lucked out with the weather - beautiful! Nicely furnished and very clean. Very well supplied - needed no start-up items. Even had beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels!!

Location very convenient and easy to find and get in and out. Loved ease of check-in. Kim responded to all questions promptly and was great help.

The only issue we had was wi-fi - was very sketchy and hard to use. At times could not get on at all. We own our own business and needed to be able to communicate daily but this was a hassle.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry we couldn't make it a 5-star trip for you, but thank you for the kind words. We're glad that you had a great trip! Unfortunately wi-fi is building-wide, so we cannot independently change it. The good news is that the Condo-owners Association has contracted with a new carrier and the whole building is currently being re-wired. Each condo will have it's own router, so wi-fi will not be a problem very soon! I'm hoping you'll be able to give us a 5-star on your next trip to the beach!
