Simple yet convenient

  • 4 of 5

Our trip was fantastic. The property was accommodating. I was a little frustrated that out of the several times I reached out to the owner of the condo, a call back, email, or message was never returned. The pool was cleaned daily and partially shaded during the day. The beach was perfect and not to much debris. The condo was good as we weren't in it much, there was plenty on TV if we chose to watch it. There is a small crock pot, large enough for a family of 3-4 maybe if you wanted to cook something while on the beach. Close enough to the hang out and other touristy places. Overall it was simple but convenient.

Great location with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was clean, and as described on VRBO. I couldn't have asked for much more. The week we were there, was the week that tropical storm Cindy was there, so we spent a lot of time in the condo. The beach was better than I expected, nice white sand. Even though the it was a double red flag most of the week, we still had fun on the beach.

Nightmare Vacation.

  • 1 of 5

I would highly suggest NOT to stay here. Although the condo itself was a nice, spacious 2 bedroom and right on the beach, this was a very stressful vacation and a nightmare dealing with the property owner. The property owner is completely unprofessional and unreachable. For starters, the access code to the unit was not provided. We called and emailed her for a week straight before our vacation in order to get the access code. She did not answer until the morning we were arriving and was very short and unsure on the phone. When we arrived at the unit it was a complete and total mess. It had not been cleaned since the last renter’s stay. The beds were unmade and had been slept in, the towels were all dirty and piled in the tub, there was hair and other debris all over the bathroom floors, tubs and sinks, there was garbage and crumbs all over the floor, the couches were disheveled with the blankets unfolded, and the ironing board and iron were still out. When we walked into this scene we immediately started calling the owner. We called her about 50 times with absolutely no answer. We called to complain to VRBO and we were told that we would have to clean the unit ourselves; just what you want to do on your beach vacation right? The list of complaints continues; the Wi-Fi did not work, there were multiple light bulbs burnt out, and the elevator broke twice during our 4-night stay (including the day we left, leaving us to drag all belongings down the staircase). Over all this was a terrible experience. The owner should not be able to rent out her unit if she is not going to answer her phone. This trip was an absolute nightmare and a total waste of good money. RUN AWAY!
