"My family of 6 recently returned from a week-long stay in this condo. Overall, this condo was quite lovely. It was in a quiet area (we never heard or saw anyone next door or upstairs) with ample parkng, and included modern finishings (not the 1980's Hawaiian printed couches like I saw in many other listings.)
A couple of minor concerns:
The condo had been cleaned, but not as well as I'd hoped, before our arrival. The mirrored closet in the 2nd bedroom appeared to not have been cleaned in some time, and we found toys under the pull-out couch and someone's nice camera under the master bed. (We left the camera with a note, when we left.) Additionally, I'd been asked whether the twin beds should be separate or pushed together as a king. While I'd asked for a king, they were set up as twins. Lastly, we searched everywhere for queen sheets and any spare pillowcases for my children to use, on the couch. We called the property manager, and she called back a few hours later with a message to look in the closet bins. There were no queen sheets or pillowcases in the bins or closets, so we made do with a king sheet and draped another sheet over the pillows so they'd have a cover. Lastly, the spare pillows in the closet could use a replacing, as many were a bit smelly.
HAVING SAID ALL OF THAT...the condo includes all possible utensils and dishes that one could ever need, the wireless worked well, the a/c did a nice job of keeping the place cool, the appliances were newish and worked great.
The condo had plenty of towels, has workng tv sets for those who wanted to watch them, and it was really cool to have bananas growing right outside of our patio door! The washing machine/dryer got a fair amount of use, and worked well.
The condo is one of the furthest in the complex from the beach, but we loved that, as it was quiet. A 3-minute walk to the beach is worth having solitude when at "home." The grounds are gorgeous, and beautifully maintained, and we often had the upper pool to ourselves!
One thing for the owner/property manager to consider is that if there are 6 people staying in the condo and need to leave for the airport in the morning, it is very challenging to have all towels and all sheets washed such that there are only 3 unfinished loads remaining, as per the rules. (I'm not sure of the solution to this problem, I'm sorry.)
Despite the minor concerns in this review, our family would certainly return to this unit, and we had a lovely time!"
