My husband and I stayed here for our 1st year wedding anniversary. We stayed a Thursday thru Sunday. We absolutely loved the place! The condo is gorgeous!! My favorite was the wood flooring, so much nicer than carpet! The condo was very clean when we arrived and took our breath away. It has a great view of the beach and pool. We only had one small incident, our 2nd morning there the lights in the bathroom went out. This is bound to happen eventually so it wasn't an issue. We called the front desk and it was replaced within 10 mins! Wonderful service! It's a great size for a romantic getaway, but could easily hold a family of four! Another awesome touch was the beach chairs and umbrella left in the closet for guests! We really enjoyed our stay and said over and over how we can't wait to come back and stay again. Jeff was so nice and easy to work with. We had no complaints!

The room was very clean upon arrival . Awesome beach view, and was very handy to be able to wash and dry clothes. I give it a 5 Star rating. And look forward to be able to come back.

This is an amazing condo right on the beach with plenty of room for my wife and myself. The view is amazing and the amenities very comfortable. We would stay here again and even bring the kids. Jeff was amazing to work with and was extremely helpful. Wonderful stay.

a little disappointed

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this condo the week of memorial day, arriving Tues after memorial day. The condo was described well on the website.

The reason for my "fair" overall rating is that when we arrived no one told us the exterior of the complex was undergoing renovations. Every morning at 7:00 AM construction workers arrived and started on the building. Unfortunately for us the scaffolding they were using for this week stretched 3 units wide and included our unit. We always had to "peek" out of our window to see if they were on our floor or not, if they were and you wanted any privacy you had to leave the curtains drawn. When you did open the curtains you looked through security wire and safety lines that hung from the roof.

I am not sure that we would NOT have stayed but it sure would have been nice to know before paying and arriving that we would have this to contend with.

If you plan on staying more then a couple of days plan on spending time at the laundry mat to wash towels, washcloths and dishtowels; we were provided 4 bath towels and 1 kitchen. You might consider taking some if you don't want to spend time in the laundry mat.

Communication with the owner upon booking the room was great, he was very responsive to my emails and phone calls. I am not sure if he was aware of the renovations going on or not-

The entire complex is a little dated, there were problems with the plumbing in the unit from the time we arrived. We informed the office in the complex and he gave us a number to call. The elevators were having trouble while we were there as well, seems they were working on them everyday. Although we tried using the stairs the door leading to the stairs on our floor would not open. We reported this as well since it could have possibly been a HUGE fire escape issue.

We did enjoy our time there but I'm not sure we would stay here again only because we felt like we should have been given notice that the complex was undergoing renovations.
