Double Beds, Not Queen

This condo has a great location, close to Duval Street as well as Ft. Zachary Taylor Beach. It's small, but packed with nice amenities, including a washer/dryer, beach towels and beach chairs. However, I was unhappy to find that the queen beds promised on this listing are actually doubles. This would have been a no-go for us, so I was a bit frustrated. Getting a good night sleep is important on vacation and crowding in a small bed didn't help. Also, the kitchen needs some attention. The tea kettle wasn't usable because it had rusted out, and some basics were missing, such as a pitcher with a functioning lid and a good nonstick pan. Since we traveled with teens, it also would have been nice to have a video game console, which we usually encounter in other rentals.
Owner's Response: Thank you Mara for letting us know about the kitchen supplies. We have ordered two new non-stick pans, a new stainless tea kettle, and new pitchers for our guests to use. We try to present a fully-stocked kitchen and are sorry we did not meet your expectations. However, we are confused over the comments about the bed sizes. We bought the two queen mattress and box spring sets four years ago, and have supplied them with new queen bedding ever since. One mattress is a pillow-top and the other plain. We did this purposely because some guests do not like pillow-tops.
