My husband and I had the opportunity to be the first people to stay in this newly-renovated condo. The owners are friends and they asked us to pretend we were paying guests and provide them feedback on the overall experience. They wanted to make sure that anything that was missing or not right was handled prior to "real" guests arrivals. And while you are right to take our review with a grain of salt since we did not pay, please also take into consideration that the owners asked us to find problems and help them ensure the next guest had an even better experience.
The unit itself is absolutely fantastic! We are veterans of this system and have seen some of the best and worst that owner rentals can offer. These owners have completely remodeled the entire unit. They installed a ceramic tile throughout that is made to look like a hardwood floor. What a luxury to have that wonderful look but in a surface that will stand up to the hardships of a beach environment. The walls were all completely redone, resurfaced and repainted. They took out two walls to open up the kitchen and now you can enjoy preparing dinner while looking out at both your guests and the direct ocean view.
The gourmet kitchen has stainless appliances and beautiful granite countertops. It also has great amenities like a Keurig coffee maker, Cuisinart, high-end blender, full sets of dishware, flatware, pots, pans, spices, etc.
The living room is perfect for relaxing. From the three-door slider that opens all the way to the amazing view of the ocean, it was breathtaking! The owners have added a 50" HDTV with a DVR too. The leather couch has a pair of recliners AND pulls out into a queen sized sleeper. Perfect!!
The bathroom is completely redone with a brand-new vanity, toilet, and high-end tile and glass door shower. The bedroom has a large window with a direct ocean view. The king sized bed was ridiculously comfortable as was the bedding. The large walk-in closet had room for everything we could possibly need for a much longer stay.
We loved our stay and agreed that we would be happy to come back again (and pay!). This unit will rent out regularly and it appears the owners are taking their guest's satisfaction very seriously.
