Property was clean and easy access to beach and shops.

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival we noticed the condo was not cooling. Made a call to property manager and she stated the air-condition unit is new and should be working well. About half hour later I called her again and she showed up within 15 min to assess the situation. She called A/C company and within half hour he was there. We were able to leave the condo without worrying about our luggage. A/C was fixed by the time we arrived back to condo late afternoon. Pool was dirty and murky looking. Needed salt tabs and more water, which my brother in law added on our 2nd day at condo.

Our last day at condo, cleaning lady showed up at 10am to clean condo. We were in the process of packing our truck and she stated we needed to check out by 10am. I reviewed email from VRBO and did not see a check out time. So we assumed check out was at noon like most hotels on the island. Very rare do i come across a hotel on the island with check out at 10am and If I do I will not book at that location. Cleaning lady was nice and we were out by 1030. We just felt rushed.

Condo was clean and had everything we needed, pots, pans, dish soap, towels and clean bed. I would stay at this condo again but only with the agreement of check out at noon.

Great getaway with my girls!

  • 4 of 5

My daughters and I really enjoyed staying at Jen & bens condo and plan to return in the future. Susie was a great host. The 1st day we had an issue with the AC that promptly got resolved. The condo was very private and came fully loaded with extras (washer & dryer, dim lighting..etc.). We especially loved the pool area and beautiful landscape surrounding it. The location was perfect. Short walking distance to the beach and literally right in front of Louie's where they set off fireworks from. We were also able to walk to many stores right from where we were staying.

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%!
