Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We vacation every year in different places and I have to say, this condo is our favorite. The view was absolutely amazing! Very clean and a ton of space for all eight of us! The resort was beautiful and the private Beach wasn’t packed at all! Management was very nice and answered our questions promptly. We will definitely stay here again!
Beautiful building and the view is extraordinary.
Clean property with the best view!
This view of the ocean was the best. I enjoyed my stay. It was very clean, the people at the resort were very nice. The only con was I wished there were lights on the balcony at night. But hey, I liked everything else.
Unit needs upgrades
The size of the bedrooms and bathroom were fine.
The furniture on the kids room needs to be upgraded. ALL of the lighting needs to be upgraded. The apartment is VERY dark. The TVs did not work on their own. The WATER kept shutting off because there are sensors in the bathroom - if they get wet ( which they would in a bathroom) the water shuts off and then you have to call to get the water back on. This happened at least 5 times and During the most inconvenient times. The beach chairs were rusted and old and some of it didn’t work. You need to reinvest in the unit!
Thank you for your candid review. We realize that some things need upgrading and our guests help us by providing feedback. We have priced this unit to be one of the least expensive units at Westwinds for this very reason. The condo does have very sensitive water sensors as well as cable boxes that need to be turned on. We are glad that you had a nice time and look forward to seeing you again.
Nice condo directly on the beach
We enjoyed our stay in Westwinds, the beach and weather were perfect and the condo was nice. Building had a nice pool, hot tub and fitness room. Landscaping and general appearance was clean and well maintained. Condo was good, very clean and spacious with a nice sunset view. Balcony was very large and we enjoyed morning coffee looking out at the water. Condo was a little dated but we felt that it was accurately represented and it we felt that it was a great deal for the location. Beds were comfortable and we had a great family beach vacation. Marcella was helpful and we felt comfortable in this condo and would recommend it to others.
Older Unit, Not As Nice As Others
We had friends in multiple condos in the Westwinds building for Spring Break this year, and this unit was at the bottom of the list compared to the others. It is on the 16th floor and has an enormous balcony that was wonderful...probably triple the size of the other units, and that was the best thing about this condo. The rest of it would not make me want to come back. It has not been updated, the furniture is worn, the beds are sagging, the twin bed bedroom didn't have ANY lights in it...no light on a switch and no lamps! It was a little crazy. There is carpet throughout the entire unit which is strange for a beach condo when there is so much sand. We vacuumed a lot (the vacuum actually worked very well, thankfully). We had trouble toward the end of the week with the toilets not flushing properly and when we went to wash some bath towels the washer leaked and the dryer didn't work properly. I did contact the property manager after we checked out and they assured us they would look into those issues for the next renters. The property managers, Skis and Seas, were very responsive and easy to work with, I have no complaints there. The unit was clean, I have no complaints there. I would not stay here again simply because I saw a number of other units in the same building that were decorated much nicer and had newer furniture in them. When we booked, this was one of the last two three-bedroom units available for our week, and I'm certain it's because it shows its age.
