"My mother, aunt, and I stayed at Lori’s place this past summer, and we’re still talking about her nicely renovated and relaxing space. I had never rented through VRBO prior to this past July, but Lori was accommodating, completely trustworthy, and prompt with her communication.
First, as she had promised, Lori mailed me two room keys, a parking pass, and a cardkey for the changing room and workout facility a little over a week before our departure, providing us what we needed for a smooth check-in.
After keying into our room, we found the top-floor condo to be quiet, relaxing, and away from street noise and pool entertainment. Though the condo is technically considered oceanview, I still had a broad, slightly angled, and uninterrupted view of the sparkling ocean from the bed in the king bedroom, chairs on the balcony, and sofa in the living room. I’ve stayed in many oceanfront condos and units at the Compass Cove, and I didn’t feel as if I missed out on any beauty by staying in this unit.
Both bedrooms have nearly new bedding and carpet along with extra pillows, linens, and blankets in addition to two box fans. In the living space and kitchen, the floors, countertops, and cupboards are new and clean, and the kitchen came equipped with all of the utensils, appliances, and dining wear that we needed, including a coffeepot. Plus, the dishwasher worked effectively as well, a rare find in most condo rentals.
For smaller loads of laundry, the unit has a convenient stackable washer and dryer, which was useful for washing beach towels, clothes, and swimsuits.
The size and layout of the condo made it spacious for three adults: We enjoyed each other’s company in the common space and retreated to the bedrooms for a good night’s rest.
After checking out, leaving the space in great condition, and mailing to Lori the keys and keycard in a self-addressed stamped envelope that she had provided me, I promptly received a check for our security deposit in the mail from her.
To reiterate, Lori was so accommodating, and my family and I thank her for answering our many questions when making the initial reservation. Throughout the entire process, she was clear in her communication, sending e-mails with the terms of the stay and amounts due and paid.
Her kindness and professionalism helped to to allay our initial concerns, and my family and I hope to stay again in the future. Thank you, Lori, for helping to make our trip a memorable one!"
