Fairly nice place, just needs to be prepared.

  • 3 of 5

Our place was fairly nice and very clean. We did have to wait an hour to get into our place due to some miscommunication with the owner and their friend. The air was broke so spent two days with the air conditioner guy. He was unable to fix it so it ran 24/7 and we had to manually shut it off and on. Refrigerator and hot water were shut off for some reason at first, so cold shower and hot beer. No wash cloths provided, also no coffee pot. Communication with owner was very nice, and even sent me a birthday gift to our room. We were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go so that was very nice. It is in a good location Just think owner needs to be bit more prepared to rent out.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time and enjoyed our lovely neighborhood. Sadly the a/c broke just when you arrived, but fortunately we could temporarily run it via the breaker. This was to spare you the 12 hours of construction it took to put in the new a/c (we now have a brand new central air system). The day before you arrived, we must have accidentally shut off the fridge instead of turning on the hot water, but fortunately the tepid FL water gets hot within 15 min. The condo had been empty for a while, usually all systems are on. I apologize that you had to wait to check in, we got the time wrong by 1 hour. There is a coffee hand press in a kitchen cupboard, which is the environmentally friendly cousin of the electric coffee pot.

From the Owner

I bought my property because of its proximity to a beautiful white sand beach (2 min walk) and the great nightly live music at two bars/restaurants just a 4 min walk away. Its close to downtown and Tampa airport. Its spacious and has friendly neighbors. The entire sunset beach neighborhood is unique, where many locals know each other - its like a small village. I feel very safe here, even when I walk by myself late at night. I also like the 7-eleven across the street where I can quickly get what I need, and the beach Publix grocery store down the road. TI has everything you need, from post office to bank, and many shops.

From the Owner

I love my condo because its steps to the beach, and I can sit on the dock and watch dolphins swim by (almost every evening). Many of the residents have been there a long time, and we have a very neighborly friendly community here at the 40 unit complex where many units are owner occupied or have long-term tenants.
