Leaves a lot to be desired
I was very excited about my trip to Tybee and stay at Keylime Cond after seeing such great pictures and working with owner. The owner was easy to work with and accommodating. However, upon arrival, the condo left a lot to be desired. The firsts noticeable disappointment was it is one bedroom and a loft with a bed and shower curtain for privacy, second the stairs to the loft are nothing short of a safety hazard. Any persons short of young and fit, will not not make it up these stairs safely. The hand raining is detaching and whole staircase is not sturdy. If you are lucky enough to make to the top , you will find that the railing designed to keep you safe is nothing more than looks. Not to mention the paper thin walls and the subjection to the neighbor's conversations...bring ear plugs.
Moving along to the main floor, where do I start? Maybe with the cinder block step to the main bedroom and yet another one in the bathroom. Watch your step when wet, barefoot, or in the dark. Mold, enough said. The furnishings are dilapidated and in need of replacement. This includes the linens... YUCK! I crawled into bed only to be welcomed with someone else's hairs. I could go on, but the point is made.
Overall, the location is convenient to activities located on the island and the access on and off the island is great. If the place were to undergo a renovation, this would be a perfect place to stay. I'm sorry to have to write a bad review as the booking experience and the owner were so pleasant.
Owner's Response: This review is puzzling. I don't know how anybody could look at our listing and not see the loft. A picture in our listing is a close-up of the curtain that draws across the railing for privacy. It is clearly a drapery, not a shower curtain. No cinder blocks are in this unit. The steps are solid stone aggregate. Since the cleaning service does not use hair nets, it's easy to see how a hair might get on the linens. If the guest had told me, I would have had the linens changed. Anyway, spare linens for all the beds are in the apartment. Sound insulation is in the wall between this unit and the one next door. However, loud noises from the unit next door and the neighborhood will penetrate. I have checked the spiral stairway and the loft railing. Both are quite sturdy and perfectly safe. This guest did indicate that she had some mobility issues. A king bedroom and bath are on the ground level. The loft bedroom is more appropriate for someone who climbs stairs well.
