1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4
Dune Allen Realty
We have been staying at Gulf Place for about 12 years at least 2-3 times a year. This condo was by far the best!! Best views, best balconies, best location...Just Perfect.
The condo was in a great location, just across the street from the beach. Property management staff was very responsive to needs. They were very polite and caring. The condo was good size and clean and had all the amenities we needed for a nice relaxing and enjoyable stay.
Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed this beautiful condo and the great location! We hope to see you again soon!
Nice small condominium but missing a few amenities.
Updated interior finishes still lack dishwasher and ice maker (there are manual ice trays in the freezer). Essential kitchen wares but no measures for mixed drinks or cutting board for essential limes. Tile floors are pretty, but track sand everywhere, even after washing feet. Small bathroom is sufficient but not enough towel hooks to hang towels between showers. Deck is expansive and overlooks Hwy 30A: can barely see the water or hear the water between the buildings across 30A.
Thank you for your review. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us as we strive to improve with each and every stay. Had we been made aware of the items you needed in the kitchen, we would have brought them over immediately. We will share your feedback with the owner about the towel hooks and suggest more be provided. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. For future reference, Dune Allen Realty is available 24/7 for anything you may need. Despite the above, we are glad you enjoyed your vacation at the beach. And we hope to welcome you back again in the near future!
Inn At Gulf Place - 👍
We Love Inn at Gulf Place! It’s so convenient with the shops, coffee shop, Perfect Pig, Shunk Gulleys( across the street ) etc . We’ve stayed in several units there . This unit was clean, cute. and comfortable . FYI - The wall AC unit is quite loud if you are a light sleeper - we kept the bedroom unit off at night because of the noise. No dishwasher , but we eat out so only had to wash coffee cups. If you are there on Thursday night - the music at LaPlaya is loud if that is a problem for you . We enjoyed it very much and the band was great ! It stopped about 10:00. ( One repair note - bathtub handle comes off ) Once office closes- emergency # is not helpful- we had trouble with lock and and they couldn’t help. We assisted a lady with two babies trying to find her unit late, because she couldn’t get help from emergency number . Having said that - just covering everything -We love it there and will definitely return ! 👍�

Unit was misrepresented
2 main problems: At the time of booking, under amenities, it stated there was a dishwaser in the unit. There was not a dishwasher. The unit also states a sleeper sofa, therefore accomodating 4 people. It was broken.
Dishwasher - The management company said they weren't aware of this unit not having a dishwaser and would have housekeeping do our dishes each day, the next day we called when they didn't show up and were told earlier that morning the manager had decided they weren't going to do that. We were then offered paper products (at that time, we said it was unacceptable b/c of what had been promised. Then Denise from Dune Allen Reality offered to do them herself, then again when no one showed up, we called and they said this wouldn't happen. Since they wouldn't stand by what was originally, they brough paper plates, cups, and utensils. We still had to handwash everything we used for cooking, coffee cups, etc. We would have stayed somewhere else if we knew there wasn't a dishwasher.
Sofa Bed - We had 2 teenagers with us. The sleeper sofa was broken & obviously from the condition had been broken for a while. We were given 2 air matresses for them that 1/2 deflated over night. They girls would basically end up sleeping on the tile floor. A 3rd air matress was brought that worked a little better. One girl stacked them to sleep on, but still very uncomfortable. The other girl slept on the couch which wasn't comfortable b/c it was not wide enough.
Other issues we weren't happy about, but could have still enjoyed the vacation, were that the ice maker in the refrigerater didn't work. The air conditioner is very loud and woke us up often throughout the night and morning. There wasn't a closet in the bedroom to hand clothes. Dune Allen Reality manages this property and the manager (Beth) was very rude and has no customer service.
Beth at Dune Allen Reality offered to give back $100 for our problems. We felt this was ridiculous because we thought we were paying for a unit to fit 4 people, this fit/slept 2. We thought we paid for a unit with a dishwasher & there wasn't. We spent half of the vacation dealing w/ these problems and not being able to fully enjoy our trip. We vacation about 5/6 weeks every year & often use VRBO and have never had these issues.
Only positive was good location and clean. Otherwise we wouldn't have given any stars.
We sincerely apologize for the dishwasher mistake (it was wrongly entered on the VRBO amenity list). When our reservationist realized the mistake, she attempted to resolve the situation by agreeing with your demand that someone come and wash your dishes each day. She kindly offered to do it herself. The general manager then explained to you that we could not offer you that service, but we would be happy to give you a refund. You refused the refund. Instead you angrily yelled at the manager over and over, "You will wash our dishes" until the manager finally had to hang up (she told you more than once that she was going to have to hang up if you did not stop yelling).
Regarding the sleeper sofa, you are correct that the sofa broke, but it had not been broken. We brought you three different brand new blow-up beds, which for some unknown reason each deflated. We also brought you new linens each day since you did not want to use the common washer and dryer, although no washer and dryer was listed in the amenities. We also provided you with a weeks worth of paper products: plates, cups, utensils.
Again, we apologize for the dishwasher having mistakenly been listed on VRBO, but we did try to resolve the issue in a professional manner despite your continuously yelling at our staff.
