"First the positives: Great building, fantastic view, nice remodeled unit, comfortable beds, nice televisions.
I don't want to be too negative on this unit and I understand the owner's desire to save costs but the use of a Nest thermostat is completely annoying for short term renters. Thankfully for the week that we stayed the weather was perfect needing zero conditioning heat or cooling during our stay.
However, a very loud dehumidifier (I was told) runs near the hallway and back bedroom. I have one of these similar whole house dehumidifiers in our basement and it is loud. The humidifier runs 24/7 esp. if you have the windows and or doors open enjoying the perfect beach weather. It ran even though the Nest said the humidity was 38%. Maybe I'm overly sensitive to this type of noise, but it was disappointing that I couldn't turn off the constant drone. After a day of examining the Nest and trying to shut down the running fan, the owner locked us out of they system. Additionally, we never received our "visit" from the rental company which I don't really care about but for complaining about the the loud noise. Bring some music, and put your kids or poor hard of hearing parents by the noisy bedroom. After not engaging the Nest for several days it shut down completely going black. All the windows and doors are monitored by magnetic contacts for the proper operation of the Nest, which the owner monitors.
We go to the beach to enjoy the smells and sounds of the ocean and spend the extra to stay right on the beach. Despite this unit's amazing views, and nice amenities I would not rent this unit again."
