"I reread the amenities for this unit and it mentions a DVD player and a CD player. The CD player was present but not the DVD player. It wasn't a big deal to me since I didn't have any videos to watch. There are some minor reasons for why I gave a 4-star rating rather than 5-stars: a) I was greeted with a bathroom floor that was flooded due to the tenants in the upstairs units having used high-sudsing detergent for their laundry. Apparently, the drainage pipes are all shared and the ground floor unit reaps the result. While the water was clean, I was unhappy having to mop up the floor for half an hour before actually settling into my vacation. Matthew, the owner, contacted the Home Owners Association to remind the upstairs tenants to be mindful of their laundry. There was no more flooding for the rest of my short stay, but I was always apprehensive stepping into the bathroom; b) I thought it ironic that a microwave oven was available for use but all the dinnerware was made of melamine, which is a material that is NOT microwave safe; but there are a few bowls and pyrex dishes in the cupboards under the microwave that are safe to use in the microwave oven. I ended up buying some paper plates. Otherwise, the rental unit was exactly as described.
With that disclosure out of the way, I can definitely say that I enjoyed my time in that unit and that I wished I could've enjoyed it for longer. While the patio is situated within yards/meters away from the roadway, traffic noise was hardly noticeable with the patio door closed. And although there is a walkway that passes along the patio to the pool and to the road, pedestrian traffic was minimal. The condo's location couldn't be more convenient to the beaches and shops/restaurants. I didn't need to bring along any valuables, car keys or even the key to the unit when going to the beach. Oh, the key to the unit also has a Maika'i Card that is used for some savings at the nearby Foodland grocery store. The BBQ grills, tennis court, and pool were steps away from the unit. There was always ample parking near the unit at all times.
The cost of the rental was an excellent value, setting up payments and the rental agreement with Matthew was easy, and he was available to help deal with the flooding issue. All in all I had a great time here and would not hesitate returning."
