Our first condo rental
Great location, comfortable beds, plenty of kitchen utensils, etc. AC/Heat a bit noisy. Second bedroom is twins, not queen per listing. Only three kitchen chairs, but 4 in dining area of living room. Slippery polyester sheets for the twins. Great MB walk in shower, came complete with some nice soap, shampoo, etc. Plenty of bath towels although one was badly ripped. There were beach/pool towels despite listing stating must bring own. Driveway long enough to park 2 cars, one behind other. Laundry room tight, dark, but units worked well for our 1 load. Hole under front door needs to be fixed, but did not let in bugs or area resident gecko!
Nice location, property needs upgrading
When we arrived at the property, we noticed the pool was smaller than it looked in the photo. It will accommodate a family, but no more. If anyone from the adjoining properties are swimming, you will have to wait your turn.
Upon walking in the property, we noticed a very unwelcoming smell, similar to old celery. Not sure if it was something that was sprayed or used to clean. The unit was very clean and we had no issues there. The beds were very uncomfortable and are older spring style mattresses. The fold out couch mattress is very thin and was uncomfortable for even a child to use.
The bathrooms were clean and slightly more updated - no issues here. Hot water was consistent. The kitchen needs serious attention, not just because of style but because of functionality. The oven/stove was at least 25-30 years old - it had old manual push buttons on the front and took awhile to heat up. The microwave was very old and heated food unevenly. There is no dishwasher in the unit. Storage space is adequate.
The washer and dryer are located outside and around the corner, inside a room that looks like a dungeon for keeping prisoners. We did not use the washer and dryer.
Several of the doors would stick and would cause loud sounds when you tried to open or close them.
Probably the most annoying thing of all is that you could hear steps, both loud and soft, upstairs. The unit we rented was downstairs and there was constant noise and stomping from upstairs. Come to find out, it was a 3 year old running around, so not much weight was required to cause a loud stomping noise that was quite annoying.
Wifi was consistent and fast. The TV had plenty of channels to watch, but only had one TV in the common area.
The A/C unit worked well and kept us cool. The proximity to the sand is a plus - it only took us 1 minute and 20 seconds to walk from the doorstep to the sand. All in all, we will not book this unit again at the currently advertised price. We enjoyed our stay on the island, but the property needs updating and upgrading before we would book it again.
