Property was awsome.
The one big problem was that we were in room and seaside gave other people keys to our room they were about to enter our room while we were being romantic. My girlfriend was very upset and it ruined our feeling of privacy for the remainder of the week.
Property is AWESOME - Unit 603A is awful
Bella Sirena is a beautiful property and the staff were more than friendly and accommodating. The condo we stayed and Seaside Reservations were a problem.
Upon checking in with Seaside to get our keys, they advised us that we would need to pay an addition 20.00 a night for the 3 nights that we were there because there 3 adults; I made the reservation for 3 adults at the beginning, after advising them that we wouldn't pay it, they decided that was okay and wouldn't charge us since we were not told that from the beginning. The real problem was that we had no bedding, no bath towels, hand towels or washcloths. There was not any dishtowels or soap to do the dishes. I called Seaside reservations and within 30 minutes we had bath towels but that was all. There was not a screen on the sliding glass door, making us keep the doors closed and not being able to enjoy the breeze and the sounds of the ocean. All of the patio furniture is worn out and rusted, the padding on the furniture was filthy and very old. We paid nearly 700.00 for 3 night to stay here and we feel that we were ripped off for sure. The nights actually cost 364.00, but the addition 300.00 were in fees charged by VRBO when the reservation went through Seaside reservations.
Run far and fast from this unit....
Shabby condo, no pride of ownership
Walked in to peeling paint, walls scuffed & marked up in every room. Smelled musty. Cheaply decorated from a thrift store with mismatched posters and framed prints, metal art with Roosters in the kitchen and a metal Rooster in the bathroom with some random talavera pottery and fish decor scattered through the unit. There were no curtains in the living room (like pictured) or in the master bedroom, just cheap plastic vertical blinds that were missing panels, this let a lot of light into the bedroom. There was a blue poster print of a New Mexico Mountain range in the bedroom which didn't lend to the ambience of a seaside condo. Furniture was a very orange colored honey oak type of wood & scratched up. No Mexican rug in the condo as described. The beautiful bedspread was sealed up in a bag in the closet and a cheaper blue and white cover was being used. Mismatched patio furniture. We could not get the bedroom DVD to work. There were no instructions for the living room DVD and we could not successfully switch it to DVD from direct TV.
The Bella Sirena is a very beautiful condo resort in a old world Spanish design and most of the owners follow this style of decorating and if they can afford to buy a resort condo, they can afford to decorate appropriately. The grounds are impeccable and you see workers and security constantly making things right.
We would not book through Seaside again, but only directly through a few of the owners we are acquainted with. The Seaside people are friendly, however Seaside charges a lot for the rentals, even if in shabby condition and they do not hold the owners to maintain the units as would be expected for this caliber of a resort. We were also hit with an additional $187 in various fees besides the daily rate by Seaside Reservations. We did not have adequately stocked toilet paper, dishwasher soap or paper towels and the owner does not provide any kitchen towels. There were 3 thin large towels in the bathroom, 1 hand towel and only 1 wash cloth. We had to contact Seaside and pick up what we needed as the "maid" did not come, but once during our 4 day stay and we were told there would be service daily.
Also Seaside advertises a fitness room in the description, but renters are not allowed in, only the owners. As soon as you check in to Seaside, they put a hospital type of wrist band so everyone knows you are renting. Do not recommend this unit and we will only rent directly from owners in the future.
