Had a great time!
Overall, nice condo. Condo appeared to be very clean when we arrived, & it was except the tile floors were very dirty. We had a 3 year old & 10 month old with us & noticed shortly after arriving that the 3 year old's feet were black & the crawling baby's hands & feet were very dirty as well. Luckily, there was a mop in the unit, so we did a quick mop ourselves & that alleviated the problem. We did not report this to the management upon arrival as this was not something we were willing to wait for someone to come clean the floors. I did tell whoever answered the phone at the management company about it when we departed that she might want to have a discussion with the cleaning crew about mopping the floors. Another issue was not enough towels & what they had were pretty thin. So my advice would be to pack some bath towels along with your beach towels. Kitchen is small with no pantry, so you kind of have to stuff your food items on top of the refrigerator or on the counters. The pool was okay - nothing special - but not bad. After a couple of days the pool had a lot of sand in it - during high usage times , management might consider having the pool cleaned more often. And the master bedroom does stay warmer than the rest of the condo, but it was manageable by using the ceiling fan as well as a personal fan we had brought with us. The bunks were perfect for kids or a smaller adult, the balcony was great with nice patio furniture, kitchen pretty well stocked, (one burner on the stove tilted a bit - it didn't sit flat on the stove, but it really wasn't a big deal, just took some getting used to). And I should mention that this is a lower density complex, which I prefer. This condo is on the 2nd floor which makes it easy to access via stairs or elevator. There are carts available to load your luggage & things on when you arrive & depart. & also useful for bringing in groceries. We really enjoyed our stay & made some wonderful family memories. Would I stay here again? Yes.

Great, clean place on the beach. Would stay again
Housekeeping and maintenance leave a lot to be desired...
Location: Right across the street from a great breakfast place and a great dinner/drinks spot.
Unit & Building: You can tell the building is older. But it has been remodeled. The flooring, counters, furniture is all pretty new. The beds are fairly comfortable and that surprised me.
Beach: The beach was extremely crowded even just for a non holiday week. There was literally nothing but those rental chairs and umbrellas. They wouldn't let you put your stuff in front of them
Housekeeping: When we arrived. The unit was dirty. There were stains on the sheets and comforters. The kitchen had sticky stuff and salt on the counter. After they left for the 2nd time, we found old hair clips under the couch. Toenail clippings on the deck. Just not very well cleaned. When they "changed" the comforters and sheets, they really just took the top comforter off of the master bedroom. and just left the sheet and the thin blanket.
The towels in the unit are tiny and super thin. You will not have enough for 8 people which is technically what the unit will sleep. Also, bring toilet paper and paper towels because you will have 1 roll of each.
Maintenance: We had to call because our sliding door wouldn't shut all the way. This is just something that should have been looked at and noticed before guests checked in. Maintenance came to our unit the first day and said they were there to install valances in the unit. That the property manager said no one would be there and gave them a key to get in. We did not check in to the unit early, so it was past the cut of time when they were supposed to be sending people into the unit.
As others have said, the back bedroom does not cool well at all. When it's 95 degrees outside, the back bedroom is a good 10-15 degrees warmer than the front of the unit.
All and all, we wouldn't be staying in this unit again. It was too expensive to get that kind of service and cleanliness.
Our condo was great! The only compliant I have would be the check in process and that the rooms get very hot. Other than that the condo was absolutely perfect!
Fantastic condo for Hangout!
My friends and I had a great time here for our stay during Hangout Fest. The shuttle pickup/drop off was right next to where we were staying. Everything in the condo worked great. The view of ocean from the patio was amazing. Hope to be back soon!
Great location, but......
The unit itself and the location were fabulous. The only reason this did not get 5 stars was because the cleaning was a bit sketchy. There were things left under both beds from previous guests - bobby pins, hair bands, I don't know what else, because I didn't want to find out. I would have gladly swept them up and disposed of, but there was no broom in the unit. Which I found a bit strange, because you always need to sweep up sand when you're at the beach no matter how careful you are. Therefore, I broke out my clorox wipes and did a scrub down of all the hard surfaces, because it led me to believe that everything else was not as clean as it should have been.
The walls are a bit thin, we could here the group in the condo next to ours running up and down the hall early in the morning. We could hear the people above us scraping and moving chairs around at all hours of the day and night. Just a note to let you know that you may hear noise. I do agree with another guest that the ac in does not flow well to the front/master bedroom. It felt 10 degrees warmer in there than the rest of the unit.
Also, the dishes, pans and such in a kitchen were lacking. There was only one spatula to flip things and it was metal, so that does not bode well for the non-stick coated pans. I don't believe there were any baking pans/sheets other than one muffin tin and a pizza pan. I made do, but no deeper dishes for cooking baked goods. I don't know if those items just happened to be missing or what, but it made cooking a little challenging. Usually, I have a better stocked kitchen when renting through VRBO. It wasn't worth calling the property manager during our stay, but should be noted for future guests.
Our guests are very important to us and when a complaint is made we do our best to address any issues that our guests may have. All properties are individually owned and due to heavy rentals owner upgrades and inventory replacement are typically done after the busy summer season unless it’s reported that items are needed and we immediately have the items delivered. Our housekeeping department is dedicated to excellence but we are aware that mistakes can be made and we encourage our guests to report any issues that they may have so that we may send a team to re clean any items missed or address any complaints. We’re sorry that you weren’t completely satisfied with your property and hope that you’ll allow us to try and correct any issues in the future. We’d also like to note that the air conditioning ducts have been re-routed to the master bedroom.
