First of all we contacted the owner to ask if we could bring our pets amd if there was a fee. She stated we could take our pets so long as they were not on the furniture and they were kept in a kennel. We do not allow our pets in our furniture at home so we had no problem with her request. We also kept them in their kennel as requested and if they were not in the kennel they were on their own pet beds that we had for them. Due to an error on our part regarding the check out time we left 30 minutes late. Te maid service contacted the owner and told her we left an hour and fifteen minutes after check out which was not true. The maid service also told the owner they had to steam clean the condo due to the dogs. We ended up being charged an additional $115 for having our pets as the owner sent an email today saying pets are not allowed per condo rules but yet she agreed by phone that we could take them. The fee was for leaving and hour and fifteen minutes late which was incorrect and for the steam cleaning due to our pets. The maid service is either overcharging the owner to make more money or the owner and maid service are in it together to make extra money together. I do not recommend this place unless your ok with being charged additional fees after the fact and you don't mind being scammed. Very disappointing that you cannot take people for their word and trust they will not go back on it later. Lesson learned but at a price of $115.
My family and friends had a great time at the condos. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the HUGE pool and jacuzzi, this is the place for you. Which is the cleanest pool I have ever been in!!!!!! Way to go! Staff was courteous and helpfull during my stay. Going out of there way to make my island experience the best. Making reccommendations on places to eat and activities on the island. I liked that I was next to the Schliterbaun Water Park. And they have discount passes!!!! Overall the place is clean and made to relax. Jaccuzzi and BBQ pits with gazebos. Manager was available to take my calls when needed assistance. Idk how if you can have a small party in the Clubhouse they have but great to eat inside after a BBQ or cool off. I would stay again. Great Little Place.
As a Military Vet & a Federal Employee it is in my nature to respect the places I stay & leave them as found. It really upset me to be accused of illegal activities & for my money to be withheld for really no legitimate reason. What was supposed to have been an inexpensive 4th of July weekend ended up costing 20% more then originally planned with dirty linens, filthy air filter & a foul smelling room, plain and simple we were hustled. Please be very careful when booking with the Gulfview One Condominiums.
Foul smelling room
Filthy Air Filter
Rude customer service
Staff not knowable about information advertised on website(could not help with bus schedules)
Cleaning fee(but you had to clean your own room)
Please read below for details
It was difficult to reach someone at the Gulfview One Condominiums to make a reservation; I had to call many times. Cammy booked my room & said she will send me an email confirmation. Never receiving a conformation, I had to follow-up to ensure the room was booked.
When arriving the room reeked of old mildew carpet, upon further inspection of the room, the blankets & shames were dirty, the air filter was filthy & there were no sheets for the pullout sofa. The office was closed and there was no designated POC to contact after hours to fix these problems.
I was told to wait about a week for my deposit. I waited 12 days & still did not receive a refund so I called the office for status, no one answered so I sent an email. I was outraged with the response I received from the property manager, Laura C, “the damage deposit of $XXX.XX was lost due to strong smell of a illegal substance (marihuana) and a burned plastic lamp.” First thing is I was not notified that they were going to keep my deposit, second, is that I do not do drugs nor did anyone in my party do drugs & the lamp was not burnt when I checked out. I called Laura C to get this problem fixed & she was very rude & insisted that someone in my party did drugs. After arguing with her I asked to speak with someone above her, she said there was no one else above her that I could speak to & she hung up the phone. My deposit was never returned.
Positives: Although, the negatives outweigh the positives here is the list of positives.
Grills at the pool
Pool with adult only jacuzzi and separate family jacuzzi
A short walk to the beach*far from north end of island
Decent size room*TV’s were outdated
