There were just a couple things that need mentioning. We had trouble checking in. I received probably 10 emails regarding our stay, all in advance and when I tried to check in, I was told because our condo was not with a private owner, I would have to check in at Boardwalk rentals down the road. No address, just "down the road." When we found it, it was closed but a lady was leaving and told us to go to Boardwalk hotel and all our info would be there. Got there, no such luck. She looked and looked and then asked if I had received mobile check in. I checked my email again and it was there - had been sent a few hours before check-in. I was not expecting this so didn't know I needed to be checking my email for additional information!! Then went back to LW and were allowed to go in. Had to surrender ID for a luggage cart at the lobby?? Overall felt VERY hassled by the front desk. Never in my life have had a problem getting into a rental like this. When I booked the listing said a Shell Island cruise was included. Closer to vacation time I tried calling and emailing and nobody could tell me anything about it. Not happy about that. Listing changed to say free chairs. So we used the chairs right out of the beach access by Pineapple Willie's but on our third day were kicked out them leaving us to sit in the sand. If we were supposed to be in different chairs it was not specified. The kiddie pool slide was broken and none of the water features worked. Frustrating but not a deal breaker.
Now beside all that we couldn't get over how beautiful the view and room were!! It looks much larger than the pictures and the décor is perfect. Gorgeous view from the balcony!! Everything you need for your stay is here - couple loads of laundry and dishwasher soap and a roll of paper towels. Great little kitchen setup. Comfy beds! Love the keyless entry.
It is an 8 minute walk from condo to parking, just FYI. And you need to call and get the code for beach access gate, that would have been helpful to know beforehand lol Overall we really did enjoy our stay. The boardwalk and lake out back are terrific and we saw the gator and lots of other fun wildlife. Great beach town!!
