"My family and I recently stayed at this property and we wanted to write our review. We both travel a lot and have stayed at many hotels, condos, and resorts; so we try to provide an objective outlook on the place.
- Location: Bar none this is why you’re renting this place. The view is very nice and the walk to the beach from the condo is just a step away.
-Furnishings: The dishware, couches, TV’s, appliances, and decor is very nice for being a rental property. I would say they’re on the upper end of what you’d typically expect from a rental.
-No Linens: The listing has no Linens or bath towels. This is not posted in the listing and we didn’t find out until about 6 days prior to our arrival. Unfortunately for us we were on the first leg of our vacation and ended up having to buy bed linens and towels as it was about the same price to rent them. This should be noted in the listing as the owner’s response was that they only list what they offer and not the things they don’t offer.
-Checkout Policies: We both thought the check-out policies were a bit over the top requesting that all floors be swept, all dining wares to be washed and put away, and what few dishtowels they offered to be washed (no detergent provided) and put away. These request were too cumbersome when you're tying to leave in a hurry. Every place we stay at the typical request is take garbage out, linens placed in bathrooms, and dishes ran.
-Noise: The walls are paper thin. You can hear every foot step above you. Fortunately the family above us was on a similar schedule. This could be very problematic if you had tenants who were partying all hours.
-No Elevator: The unit is on the 3rd floor so there are several steps you’ll have to carry your luggage up to. This is also not listed.
-Bed: The queen bed in the master is just average and is likely nearing its end of life. It is very squeaky and should be considered for replacement.
-Parking: Parking is a bit difficult for this unit as it’s on the backside of the building. There were several times we had long trucks park across from our spot making it extremely difficult to get our vehicle parked or pull out.
OVERALL: I would possibly stay at this location again if in the area as the view and location is great and supersedes many of my minor grievances. The owner should provide linens and loosen some of their checkout policies to make this a five star get away."
