The last time we booked a condo (or had a vacation) was four years ago on Padre Island. My experience was not good, so I was concerned when booking a condo again, but needed a full kitchen and extra bedrooms since there were six of us (three kids and my mother-in-law). In the beginning I was already very impressed with how long Randy kept in touch, and answered any and all questions.
When arriving the condos aren't over the top on the exterior, but you have to remember that any property located off the gulf or ocean will take quiet a beating from salt in the air, rain, wind, etc. The elevator is older, and stopped working once while here. But the property was really quite, the people seem friendly and my girls loved the bunnies who love coming out at night.
The condo was beautiful! It is very modern and up to date. The appliances are a dream! I could have used a few more utensils and better pots, but otherwise the kitchen was so nice. All the details put into this condo are beautiful. The place was nice and clean. The showers are big and roomy. The beds are really comfortable. We loved the view of the poo l and ocean together. It created a peaceful atmosphere for my husband and I, and we have three young children!
The internet isn't the greatest, so be warned. We had issues getting Netflix to work well with the network connection, so we stuck to cable TV or DVDs. The front bedroom has a blu-ray player and so does the living room. The "master" bedroom only has the TV. We brought our laptop and and it worked well with the internet. Our Sprint service is a little spotty out here.
I appreciated Randy checking up on us, and responding when we had a concern. I felt bad that the people below us thought we were "noisy." I have three little girls who don't understand condo/apartment life. When on vacation I don't want to have to constantly tell my girls to chill out, because we are bothering the people below us. I do apologize again to whomever those people are.
The washer and dryer room is $1.25 to wash and $1 to dry. They are small washer and dryers. One washer and one dryer on our floor was broken, the other washer was filled with sand. This is not Randy's fault. I had to go down to the second floor to wash clothes. I just wanted people to know if you plan on washing clothes it might not be easy.
We plan on coming back!
