The unit was very clean and had everything we needed. Great large back patio that overlooks the pool and has a partial view of the gulf.

Great vacation condo

  • 5 of 5
We are very please with our stay at Ben and Jen's condo, we had a little issue when we got there, the condo was dirty (food on floor, dirty dishes, bed not made, dirty towels, etc), it seemed like the cleaning crew had skipped cleaning the condo after the last guests, we contacted the manager and she was there with in minutes with the cleaning staff, they cleaned it very well but the dishes were put back in cabinets without being washed (lipstick on cup and food on the forks) And they left a plastic bag full of cleaners and rags on the sofa). That was the only negative, everything else was PERFECT, nice place, walking distance to the beach and many restaurants, we didnt have to use our car to get to the beach or for shopping and dinner. Thanks Ms. Jen and Mr. Ben for having us! We are planning to come back soon! I definitely recommend Ben and Jen's Condo, my husband and I and our six year old daughter enjoyed it 100%!

Nice condo but not for young children

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at this condo for 4 nights. Upon arrival, the condo appeared to be well cleaned however after closer inspection, we notied there was still sand underneath the decorative rugs so we used the vaccuum to clean the floors ourselves. I do not recommend staying here if you have small children who are crawling. The floor was filthy, mainly the decorative carpets. My son's toes were black from the dirt, we actually had to buy him socks. Also, the bathtubs were completely backed up and would not drain. We purchased liquid plumber which seemed to somewhat correct the problem, however this could be a problem in the future. We also encountered a few cockroaches and smaller bugs that appeared to be fleas.

In our opinion, the above items can easily be corrected. If so, this would be a good place to stay on the island. The condo provided conveniences to make meals, do laundry and watch movies as a family. The location of the condo was awesome and close to two beach access areas within walking distance. The TVs and cable channels were a plus when we needed to relax after a long day on the island. The owners provide plenty of extra sheets and beach towels if needed. I would recommend this condo for adults and teenagers but not for families with small children.

I was told it was close to the beach, but wow, walking distance to two entrances. Pool in the back. Clean and spacious. Owners offered wi fi, kitchen ready for use, all we had to do was buy groceries and have fun!

Awesome vacation!

My family and I stayed in Ben and Jen's condo for a week beginning 8/7/11, and we had a fantastic time! We are native South Texans, so were already familiar with the island, but this was our first extended stay. First of all, the photos don't do it justice. This condo was immaculate when we entered, and it is bigger than it seems in the photos. Kitchen is well equipped, appliances are newer/efficient, and living area is very comfortable for relaxing. Rooms are spacious with fantastic closet space. Pool is a bit small, but our kids really enjoyed. Fireworks display on Friday night is wonderful and the view from our driveway was better than we could ask for. Didn't even have to leave the condo. Front and back porches are spacious, but not enough chairs. If you want to sit out there for a bit and enjoy the glorious view, I would recommend bringing a few extra folding chairs with you. Walk to the beach was easy and convenient, 5-8 minute walk at the most (wear shoes, sand is HOT!). Lot's of shops, stores, and restaurants within walking distance, and washer/dryer inside condo made it super convenient to throw in your towels at the end of each day. A/C was cold and kept us comfortable during the extremely hot August weather. Also want to add that dealing with Jen was so easy and pleasant. She is super sweet and made us feel comfortable right from the start. So glad we decided to try a rental by owner service. The price was very affordable, roomy, and comfortable . A fantastic time was had by all. Awesome vacation. Thank you Ben & Jen, we hope to come back next year!
