Do not stay here do some research
Very disappointing.... the only thing this little place has going for it it is on the beach, but that is the only thing...... Coffee our first morning there, I pulled out two dirty cups, it clearly states, clean and put away..... Dead cockroach in the living area one of the days, its Florida but really....
This condo needs some serious updates.... the dishwasher is portable so plan on doing your dishes by hand whilst you on vacation..... Linda get rid of the clutter and old furniture, it makes this place look smaller, uncared for, and cheap, and it is already small.....you need less clutter of old outdated furniture that looks old...... for the money it is not worth it....
The only thing that made this stay liveable was that my father in law had a really NICE condo 1.0 mile down the beach and we spent most of our time there....
We won't be back.... we will be back to the area but will not be staying here again..... check out hotels and condos a little further down gulf blvd, they were a lot more affordable, and had updated amenities, like granite countertops, right on the beach still......and at least a clean coffee cup you didn't have to wash before using......
It is a beautiful area and would recommend staying at Indian Shores but do not stay here, a lot more is available for a lot less money.....
This condo is not up to scratch and seriously overpriced.
And beware your refund will come through PayPal, and if you don't want to link your bank account which I choose not to, receiving a check back will cost you $1.50...... I am looking at my options below to recommend this place I don't see a check for No One....
Owner's Response: We pride ourselves on providing a clean,well equipped and maintained beachfront cottage to visitors from around the world and have succeeded in satisfying all of our guests for over 15 years.
We were quite shocked ourselves, to receive this review, and are really beside ourselves on how to respond.
Suffice it to say, this was a difficult tenant who literally had to be run off the property after 3 days.
It is certainly possible that the cleaning people overlooked a couple of stained coffee cups that had been put away in the cabinet. We have alerted them to inspect the dishes more thoroughly upon a visitors departure.
There is indeed, a portable dishwasher and it works wonderfully! Not sure why one would have to "plan on doing dishes by hand".
As for the decor, the pictures on this site are accurate and up to date. This is, in fact, a beach cottage, and decorated as such. We have had many compliments on the furnishings, pictures, etc--even had people ask where to purchase some of the items--never had ONE complaint until now.
Obviously you cannot please all of the people all of the time and we do not profess to provide a sleek, modern condo with granite countertops and such. It is what it is: a cozy, comfortable groundfloor beach cottage directly on the sand overlooking the Guf of Mexico.
As far as the $1.50 charge by PayPal, we had NO idea and made no profit off of this. Had this guest communicated with us, we would have happily mailed them a check. They chose to pay on PayPal, so we refunded the same.
The STARK contrast between this and every other review should alert the reader to the vindictive nature of the reviewer.
The property's record should speak for itself.
We look forward to many more years of satisfying our beach loving visitors!
