Great experience with Owner and Condo
Submitted: April 4, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
We have stayed at Splash for three years now; and have used vrbo for all of our vacations for 4 years now. For us, although we appreciate a nice condo, we also would like to have a fluid conversation with the owner of the condo. For as many people as we have spoken to from East of the Mississippi across several different states, we've learned that having a good relationship and conversations with the owner is extremely important to us. Chuck definitely falls into this category. He was courteous, accommodating and prompt. We also prefer working with owners that are low maintenance and Chuck also falls into this category. He explained everything quickly, gave us all the written agreements and let us be unless we had questions. He did follow up, but not in an annoying or overly desperate or aggressive way at all. I would highly recommend renting from Chuck.
The condo is also nice! We love staying at Splash and had never stayed as low as the 5th floor before. With young children, we definitely appreciated that this time. If you have never been to Splash, I highly recommend checking it out. It's on the "calm" side of PCB and it's extremely kid-friendly. We love going to the beach during Spring Break to get a break from the mid-west weather. Temperatures over the past few years have ranged from low 70's to mid 80's. We've had years where all the kids wanted to do was boogie board in the Gulf and others where we played mostly in the sand and built tunnels, castles, took long walks, ect...along the beach. We've rented the jet-skis there before and umbrellas and those guys have always been great too.
As far as this condo goes, we had everything we needed: kitchen appliances (we cooked almost every night), hair dryers, washer dryer, ect.....Chuck does provide 2 low to the ground beach chairs, but you do NOT get the beach chairs with the umbrellas from Splash. So, if you want to rent those it's between $30-$40 a day. It was no big deal for us though since this year it wasn't too hot. I really appreciate the full length mirror, too, in the MB closet.
Thanks for a great vacation and experience, Chuck!
