We needed a condo to stay in for 2.5 weeks as we were relocating from IL to AZ and couldn't move into our house right away. The location is very close to Old Town (not walking distance though). There are grocery stores close by and the 101 is close too. The condo was well equipped and had just about all we needed. The towels were stained, especially wash cloths and the one kitchen towel. I ended up purchasing some to use as one kitchen towel is not enough for me. Upon arrival the condo smelled quite smokey. I assumed it would clear up as the air cooled it down. The smokey smell was quite constant during our stay. After a few days I realized it was coming from the neighbors condo, as I could smell it from outside their condo when I walked by. Also, the floors were very dusty when we arrived, which is understandable, it's AZ in the summer, dust everywhere! I had no problem mopping them myself, but the mop pad was completely black already. I ended up purchasing something to clean the floors with also. The vacuum was pretty horrible as it barely cleaned and a horrible smell came out when it was on (not a burning smell, a dirty smell). Overall, I would recommend this property. The pool is close, the place is nicely updated for the area and it was well equipped. And unless you're planning on doing some cleaning, the cleaning supplies won't bother you :) The only reason I would suggest not staying is if wireless is important. I was unaware that it would only work in one room of the condo as it's a shared wireless with a unit across the pool. This was a problem for us as my husband and I had to work online during our stay, but if you're on a true vacation and only need to check email, it won't be a problem. I would stay here again and would recommend others to stay as well!
