This was our second visit, same time of year. Loved the gift left for us. The apartment is spotlessly clean. We love staying here. Very comfortably and homely and love the huge bed. The weather was brill and lovely neighbors.
Trudie is always very helpful and friendly.
I thought this condo was superb both inside and out and have no complaints. The grounds and pool are tidy and well kept. It was nice and quiet and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves when we were sitting out. The condo itself is very comfortable and has everything you need while away from home. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, easily large enough for two couples. It was also immaculately clean.
A fantastic condo and I would whole heartedly recommend without hesitation.
I was more than pleased with the condo, especially after a hectic week of business meetings etc etc. It was excellent, a lovely place to unwind. I have no complaints at all, just compliments - clean, comfortable (slept very well) and just as I expected; the photos do it justice. I will definately book it again and look forward to it.
PROS: Location, neighbors, pool, condition of grounds.
CONS: Cleanliness of unit
This location is fantastic! Walk to the activities on Las Olas Blvd., walk to the beach, etc. In addition, there is a cheap trolley you can ride if you're not up to the 15-20 minute walk. However, the photos of this unit are somewhat misleading. The living room area is nice (although the couches are horribly uncomfortable), and each bedroom had its own bathroom, which was great. However, these rooms were very dated. In addition, one bedroom's pillows were very flat, and (we found this out the last day upon stripping the linens) were filthy and very old. Also, the sheets had some sort of stain on them.
There were items left remaining in the refrigerator upon our arrival.
Lack of communication was also a problem. I was told in the confirmation e-mail that I would hear from the property owner prior to my stay. Never did. Luckily, she gave the number of the property manager, who was very helpful. As it turns out, the property owner incorrectly conveyed the dates of the stay to the property manager, who thought we were arriving 2 days prior and was heading out of town on our actual arrival date. We worked out a solution, but it was somewhat ridiculous that we had to deal with that. Even more ridiculous is that the next persons' reservation was to start the day BEFORE our end date. Luckily, we were leaving that day anyway, but I have yet to hear about any kind of partial refund for these mistakes.
I would definitely stay in the condo complex again; just not in a unit owned by this property owner.
