Condo and location was terrific. Sea side is really sea side and the property was well maintained. The condo was well fitted for any use and nicely decorated. Could not ask for a better place to vacation and walking distance to all shopping.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Short walk from the beach, the tiki hut, and to downtown coligne square shopping/dining. Thus unit is right across hall from laundry room and near elevator.

So. Small. Just ok.

  • 2 of 5

So, when they say 800 sq ft, they mean it.

The "bunk beds" are only about 2 feet deep, only wide enough for a (small) child. Every single night, everytime the one on the top rolled over, they knocked off the "bar" and scared the living hell out of the entire house 2-4 times per night. Nobody slept well all week.

The "master" has a tiny double bed that barely fits in the room, and the mattress is absolutely wretched. We were both sore every day. Absolutely no privacy. The bedroom door won't even latch, while the suite door to the bathroom from the master is swollen and won't close either.

They advertise a Max. Oc. of 5 but only provide one small couch that seat four MAX, four chairs for the kitchen table (only room for three of those chairs to begin with), and four chairs on the balcony. Where exactly is this poor 5th person supposed to sit? Ever?

They say the kitchen is stocked but didn't even have a cookie sheet for the little oven. We bought one and left it there. Many other misc kitchen items/utensils amiss. Broken scissors, etc., etc.

They say they provide beach items but onc chair was rusted out, all the boogie boards were broken, straw mat unravled, etc.

Bathroom sink wouldn't drain, the bathroom small towel rack kept falling off the wall. Tub floor is stained.

Light bulbs burnt out in the "master" and the kitchen. The light pull chain in the fan in the main room was barely working.

The AC unit is similar to hotel style and is next to the balcony door, and therefore the farthest possible distance away from the primary sleeping quarters. It wasn't sweltering hot, but it was definitely not comfortable. Be aware of the if you like it cool when you sleep.

Pros - appliances all worked and were updated somewhat recently. Nice counters and backsplash. The view from the balcony was quite beautiful. The pool was very clean and neat, not too crowded. The neighbors were all friendly and no one bothered us or was too loud at night. The walk to the beach is very short!

All in all - would definitely not book here again. It wasn't bad enough to ruin the vacation, but it was just way too small and all the other little things added up to a lot of inconveniences.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were not total satisfied with the unit. The unit does sleep 5 with a queen bed, 2 bunk beds and a queen sofa sleeper. It is 800 square feet and does make accommodations tight four 5 people. Extra light bulbs were in the hall closet and any other issues should have been reported to the agent for repair or replacement. That is why I use an agent rather than booking through VRBO and handle the villa myself. I will report these issues to my agent for repair. Richard Lesniak

Where do you live?

Great location and price

  • 4 of 5

This is a great small place to stay. Great location, close to Coligny shops and restaurants. You can see the ocean from the balcony, but not close enough to hear the waves. Washer and dryer right across hallway. The only two complaints: the couch and mattress need to be replaced. Both are old and not very comfortable. However, very nice for the price and I would recommend to anyone with a small family--good for my husband and I and our two young children.
