Second time we have stayed here over Thanksgiving week. View is great, easy walk to beach. Very comfortable to relax and enjoy the area. Kitchen is well equipped and a big dining table is fun for games and also for meals. Will definitely come again

Great Location, Great View

  • 4 of 5
We so enjoyed staying at this property. The view from the balcony is breathtaking, and the amenities were great (pool, volleyball court, and newer BBQ grills). However, this property does lack the modern feel that I was expecting, in the electronic age there are very limited plug-ins, I use a breathing machine and in the master bedroom the plug-ins are on the light switch so when my wife would get up at night, force of habit caused her to flip the switch, which in return turned off my O2 machine, and phones and tablets didn't end up charging because again the switch would get turned off. Also Wi-Fi doesn't work very well throughout the condo (just a warning). If you are someone who cooks; Oven doesn't work very well, you will have to add about 10 minutes to cook times, and 15 minutes to preheat to 375 degrees. Bathroom exhaust fan is on the main switch so when someone gets up at night they cannot use just the light they have to run the fan as well so very noisy on opposite wall, and the kids would of liked to of taken a bath, but there aren't any drain plugs so it is showers only. Coin operated laundry is pricy cost $1.75 to wash and $1.50 to dry each load. BUT I NEED TO STRESS we LOVED it and the GOOD TOTALLY out weighed these few LITTLE things, just want Renters to be aware. The good being very clean property, short walk to the beach, price is great, shower station by the walkway to clean the sand off before going inside. Lots of parking, and staff is great and so friendly, plenty of dishes, utensils, towels, blankets, books. All around great property and Karen is so quick to respond. Hope we can stay again next time.

Convenient and affordable

  • 5 of 5
There is ample bed space to sleep 10 (though we didn't have that many) + a large comfy sectional for people to lounge in the living room. Great view. Super quick and easy access to the beach over two well-kept boardwalks. Nice staff in office + the properties monitors the parking entrance so that only residents are allowed in and there is therefore always room to park. Would definitely stay again.

Not what I expected

  • 1 of 5
I have stayed at Island Retreat in the past in other units and have been very happy , unfortunately this time was a different story. When we arrived the first thing I noticed was that the unit was very dirty. The unit is also not stocked well and the stove/ oven didn't work very well. Then we saw a mouse in the kitchen, I notified the owner and she said that the unit needed a deep clean with it being the end of the summer and they would do it after we left and hopefully the mouse would go next door until we left. If she knew it needed a deep clean I wish she would have done it before our arrival since we did pay for a clean unit. Also on our last night a group showed up above us that was throwing beer cans and food off of their balcony onto ours and peeing off their balcony. It was extremely loud throughout the night and I had to call the office and the police which made no difference , this made our night really horrible since we had toddlers trying to sleep. I notified the owner the next day since I didn't want to wake her up during the night but she really didn't seem very concerned that our stay was as bad as it was. I won't stay here again in the future and would warn anyone else about staying here also .

Owner's Response: It is Randy and MY top priority that our units be clean and comfortable for our guest.
Upon inspection, there was no evidence of mice in the unit.
As for the disturbance by the guest above them, calling the office is the appropriate action.
It is NEVER our intention for our guest to have a less than wonderful experience in our condo.

This condo was the perfect place for our extended family. The place is furnished very nicely and the beds were all very comfortable! The unobstructed view of the ocean from the balcony was fabulous!! The pool is nice and they have onsite laundry. It is in a great location close to town. Would highly recommend to anyone and will stay their again.

Great condo!!

Great weekend getaway and very convenient to everything. I've been going to the island for years and was in the habit of staying at one of the other condos but after staying here I will come back for sure. The place just felt so comfortable just being at home. Very spacious and bedrooms were well arranged and nicely furnished.
Loved that you can see the water from the balconey. Everything worked well - A/C, appilances, TVs, and beds.
Excellant place and location. Thanks so much
