OKAY

  • 3 of 5
This unit is exactly as described in the listing. Basic no frills.

Pros:
-Price is great
-Location is perfect - we walked everywhere
-Has kitchen essentials needed

Cons-
-Our room faced a street that was noisy when cars drove past. We had to turn on the window AC unit to drown out the sound. Shouldn't be a problem during the summer since you would likely have the AC unit on anyways, we unfortunately had a cooler rainy stay.
-When we arrived, my husband immediately smelled a gas leak. We turned off the gas valve to the stove (smell went away) and waited for a call back. The site manager offered to move us to a new unit, we declined just because we had one more night to go and already had everything unpacked. We just left the valve off during our stay.

Overall, the location is incredible. Short walk to the beach, restaurants, and attractions. Aside from the two issues above this is a good place to stay if you want to be close to the action for a cheap price.

SUCH A GREAT GETAWAY PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for the 2nd time. This stay was just as nice as the first. Peaceful and quiet, Great location. Comfortable and welcoming. This place has everything you might need. The kitchen was well stocked. There were plenty of nice towels in the bathroom and the bed is cozy. I hope I can return soon.

PLEASANTLY SURPRISED

  • 5 of 5
We were really happy with our stay, and I appreciated how everything was as described! This was my first experience with a VRBO site, and it was positive. This rental was clean and well-maintained, and price was per the quote provided. The only difference from the photos was the pleasant surprise of the small table and four chairs instead of the sofa in the picture. Because we were taking our two little kids on their first beach trip, we wanted something within very easy walking distance of the beach. This location was perfect! The block walk took us right up to the crosswalk over to the beach, and the rental was quieter than a chain hotel since it wasn't facing on Seawall Drive. Wi-fi worked great for us, and the owner was very accommodating. I especially liked the keypad entry to the room so we didn't have to worry about keeping up with the key at the beach! We used the adequately-equipped kitchen several times, and the air mattresses worked well, too. Great experience!

GREAT PLACE, COUPLE OF CONCERNS

  • 3 of 5
We really liked this cute little rental because of the convenient location and the great price. We had a couple of minor issues with our stay, but would be willing to give it another try.

We did not have a key to the building when we arrived and were not able to get it until the next day with several text exchanges required. It ended up being OK because we were not out after the front doors locked, luckily.

There was no wireless access available -- the network name advertised wasn't "seen" and the password did not work on the available networks. We tried to get help from the owner and onsite manager, but were never able to get a response.

The window unit is pretty loud, but manageable -- you are staying at the beach after all..

Considering this was pretty much the only thing on the island at this price that was clean, safe, and full kitchen, it was a great deal.

This is a good rental for budget minded people. The owner is very responsive and willing to assist.

As advertised the Apartment was clean and nicely equipped. We saved money buy cocking our own food. The location is close to Restaurants, Hotels,Shops and the Seawall.

I recommend it.
