Nice place, great location on the beach
First off, a very nice place overall. Owner was responsive to my questions upon booking, and upon arrival the management of the keys etc. was just as expected. Had a good time and enjoyed the amenities of the hot tub (pool was closed for construction that was ongoing and looks to be completed soon). Pool deck itself was very nice too. Did not use the grills but they are there by the pool area. Some minor items worth noting: Twin beds in bedroom 2 were VERY firm. King bed in master was comfy though. Location on the SW side of the building was very good for wintertime sun exposure on the balcony but you should be aware that immediataly next to the condo to the south is a bird sanctuary which had a bit of bird noise and some smell too when the wind was right. It was fun to watch the pelicans and other birds flying around. View from main balcony was to gulf beach and also you could see the birds behind their cages. The smaller balcony off the kitchen was overlooking only the bird sanctuary and parking lot so was not great. The fireplace needed a wood grate and some fireplace tools--poker, brush, etc. and it did not seem to vent well when we used it...making the room a bit smoky albeit the wood we had did not seem to burn well either so maybe a hotter fire would have caused more draft. Silverware was limited and we could have used a few more teaspoons but there were plenty of plates although of a mismatched pattern. A nice teflon fry pan would have been nice as would have a scrubber for the steel fry pan that stuck eggs to it...without the tools to clean it the job was not easy and the pan upon arrival was looking like a previous person also had trouble getting it clean too. Overall decor is good but some of the unit is appearing dated such as cabinets and counter tops. Carpets were also in need of some shampoo but I am picky...they really were not that back just had a few spots that I would have hit if I owned the place myself. Overall, I would recommend this property based on location, reasonable cleanliness and livability, and amenities of the unit as well as the condo building itself.
