Long and Foster Vacation Rentals
Basic Basic Basic
First of all, two check in points? Had to check in at the long and foster office and then at the condo. Why? We had lots of traffic, were tired and hungry, and this added almost 30 minutes more. Secondly, ewwww. Kitchen was not clean. Fingerprints all over kitchen, slider, and walls. Coffee splashed on coffee maker, counter and dishwasher. Hall toilet was disgusting. To be fair, when long and foster called to tell me the oven was broken and someone would be up to fix it, they said someone would be up in 45 minutes. We were told we had to wait for them. So after about an hour of hanging out tired and hungry in our dirty apartment a pleasant housekeeper did show up and expressed how “unacceptable” the cleaning job had been.
The furnishings are old and battered. The carpet could have at least been cleaned but it should be replaced. The pillows were stained, the bedrooms are dimly lit. And there were no homey touches. We had to buy hand soap paper towels and toilet paper that night.
Finally, an owner should disclose if they have a cat. There was kitty litter in the laundry room and the repairmen found cat toys under the stove when it was finally repaired late afternoon the second day. Fortunately our son, who is highly allergic, didn’t join us or he would’ve been inexplicably wheezing with swollen eyes.
The positives? It was in a good location to cross the road to the food lion and dodo ice cream. You could walk right through the lobby to the beach. Nice ocean view but if you looked down there was an unsightly rusty roof about 12 floors down.
So if you’re looking to overpay for basic semi clean accommodations in a good location, go for it.
Just stayed at your property. Condo was beautiful and the view is amazing. Location in the Carousel was great with lots for young families to do. Did not like how far it is from the boardwalk but you can enjoy a lot within the property. Furniture was a little outdated and sandy. Also there was a very strong smell of maple syrup the whole time we were there. Could use a bit more of a deep clean. Overall enjoyed our stay though!
Excellent Ocean Front Condo!
Great ocean front condo with nice ocean front balcony as well as bay side views and balcony. Would definitely return again.
Convenient and Family Friendly!
Right on the beach you can hear the waves from the living room! Very family friendly building. This is a hotel and a condo bldg combined, so amenities of both which is great. Wish we could have checked out a bit later and taken advantage of the day more and escaped the mass exodus of the hotel guests.
Beach is great, outdoor pool is great, indoor pool ok. Very crowded on a rainy day with rowdy kids, balls floaties, etc.
I read the review that criticized needing new cookware. Problem solved. All brand new pots and pans, FYI!
Not 5 stars only because the floors were not really clean upon arrival and there were some spare sheets, blanket and towels balled up in the closet. Not sure if those were laundered or not.
Spacious, convenient and very family friendly!
We would return again!
Very cozy, Beautiful view
The only reason I didn't get this property a five star is because they really should upgrade their stove and refrigerator. Only one burner worked on the stove and it didn't work very well. Other than that the place was comfortable updated, and a stunning view.
