SAVE YOUR $$$$ !!!!
We rented this Condo for two weeks in December. Upon arrival, you get a long list of "Rules & Conditions" such as Do NOT under ANY circumstances set the Air Conditioning Temperature below 75 degrees, because it could result in the A/C unit Freezing Up, and you'll be subject to a service call charge to reset the Breakers, or be responsible for all damages caused by such violation. ( YES...the Old A/C really seemed to be on it's last legs !! ) It was also then pointed out to us that the VRBO listing rate that was supposed to include all taxes etc......REALLY DIDN'T...THAT it was just a "Rental Rack Rate"...and everybody does that. As we unpacked in the bedroom, we noticed a TV Cable draped over the dresser, but NO TV. We called the Rental Agent's office, and she told us that there wasn't two TV's. We pointed out to her that the listing said that there was, and then she said she'd contact the owner and ask them about it. When we didn't hear back from her in a couple of days, we called her back, and she said that she'd get a TV out to us as soon as possible....it NEVER happened ! I don't believe that our two week stay was really up to anyone's ordinary vacation accommodation expectations, nor was it at all a very comfortable experience. We did talk to some others, at the same Condo complex, with some of the units that had been nicely updated, but this Unit OBVIOUSLY hadn't been touched since the Building was originally built ! ( Even the Kitchen Cabinets/Drawers were ill-fitting & falling apart ! ) This unit is in DIRE NEED of Repair & Up-dating, and is obviously GROSSLY over-priced in the rental market. We recently stayed at another Condo on Siesta Key, ( Also Thru VRBO ) that was just down the beach, and it was not only MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE , but was VERY NICELY up-dated, ( In fact, decorated with VERY "High-End" finishing touches! ) and was also cleaner. ( BTW, it was a 2 Bedroom/2 Bath unit for LOTS LESS $$$.... and, Oh yes...the Half-Bathroom in this unit is really more of a storage closet...VERY dark with a small sink and toilet....housing the old A/C unit and a storage shelf. ) I could go on and on, but I think that you get "The Drift" here ! A word of advise....JUST SAVE YOUR MONEY, and look elsewhere on the Key for spending your vacation Dollars !
