Nice, off the beaten path
Submitted: July 31, 2012
Stayed: July 2012
Clean – The unit was very clean on arrival. The drains in the bathtub and sinks don’t drain quickly, so be very mindful of the sand in your clothes and try to keep it to a minimum in the shower.
WiFi – There is free Wifi in the unit. However, the internet stopped suddenly often. This may not be a big deal to most of you since you’re on vacation and likely won’t be in the unit, but if you work remotely for a living (as I do), you may want to make sure you have a more reliable option for internet.
Netflix – There is Netflix in the unit. It’s only installed in the bedroom, not the main room. Some things to be aware of. The Netflix in the unit we stayed in (this owner has two units at this location) only works if no one is using Netflix in the other unit. If they are running their Netflix, you won’t be able to run yours. You’ll get the warning that it is running on “too many devices” and to close them. Also, the Netflix functionality was affected by the lack of internet. Again, this wouldn’t be a big deal to someone who isn’t in the unit much of the time, but one of our party got bad sunburn on the first day down there.
Storage unit – There were some boogie boards in there and some inflatable pool lounges, which you’re not allowed to take in the pool. We never found the umbrella. My fiancé brought his own golf clubs, so I don’t know much about the ones that were in there.
Restaurant – There is a restaurant on site, but it was closed for the summer.
Golf Course – There was a nine-hole-golf course on the site. It is closed all summer.
Bugs – I hate to say it. There are signs all over the apartment talking about how they “Never have problems with bugs, but don’t leave food out.” There were bugs in the kitchen when we arrived, as well as little ant traps on the counters that weren’t working any more. We prepared our meals on the kitchen island to keep away from bugs.
Supplies – Things to take with you that are not at the unit.
• Toilet paper
• Paper towels/Napkins
• Laundry Detergent
• Dish Soap
• Dishwasher soap (if you opt to use it)
• Trash bags (13 gallon)
I guess you should kind of think of it like camping.
All in all, I would say it was a good value for the money. Please take care to read over the terms of the rental and ask Justin for any clarification on items you don’t understand. Have a great vacation!
Owner's Response: Sorry that your experience was so different from all the other guests that had a 5 star experience. Needless to say its far from accurate.
For all future renters, the golf course was being radically improved during her stay, undergoing the first renovation in 20 years with all new seeded tee boxes, greens and really taking it to a whole other level. The development decided to do that on short notice but it'll add to the first class amenities that are there. Not sure why you guys didn't see the golf clubs that were there. We actually had just put in brand new clubs in the unit less than a week before when we were there!!!
The internet connection was a temporary slowdown as they were installing all new lines for the new internet provider in the complex. My wife and I go down there regularly and we are always using the internet to stream movies and do work from down there. You can ask her, it probably works too well because I use it for work too often!
The more formal, on site restaurant is seasonal but the resort just built a brand new pool size bar and grill that is located right next to the pool and has seating for something like 50-100 people. It has a full menu for lunch and early dinner specials, full bar (We're partial to the Pina Colada and Long Island Ice Tea) and is the place we go to all the time. This is the Tiki bar mentioned in the pictures. Needless to say its our favorite and its open all year round, even on many holidays. So not sure why they missed that!!!
On top of that, the resort is in the process of adding all new locker rooms, saunas and on site library and much more. So future guests, feel free to read the other reviews or call me and I'm happy to talk more any questions you have.
