Overall our stay was great. The downfall was the AC went out on the second day, they were able to get to it the next day. It was an easy fix, a dirty filter on the bottom of the AC that should have been removed when AC was installed. It was a hot night without AC, thankfully it was only one night. It would have been nice if we would have been offered fans.
We loved staying at this rental. It was very clean and inviting. Location was great...close to the public beach area and close to shopping. Garage area to store our big items (Poles for Pole Vaulting) was such a bonus! Would definitely stay here again!!! Communication with the owner was quick and informative! Thanks!!!
Great place, easy beach acess by car and nice owner will return again
My family had an amazing time and the condo was great. There was plenty of everything, we grilled some food in the front and fished on the dock, house was fully equipped for everything we needed. we have stayed at many condos and hotels on the island and this is the best one and most comfortable for my family. I have nothing negative to say about this place, we will be coming back soon. We had contacted the owner a few times before our arrival and they answered immediately everytime. The condo what was very clean and did not have a funny smell like some places do. There was extra bedding sets and pillows, plenty of margarita glasses and did not see any bugs inside of the condo (of course we didn't leave any outside doors open). Overall we all are very pleased!! Thank you owners for letting us enjoy your condo
The location was awesome but the house was missing MANY things. When we got there on Saturday the trash dumpster right by the front door was overflowing and smelt awful and trash day was Friday so we had to deal with it all week. The owner said " Just put your trash in the neighbors dumpster." There were HUGE water bugs or roaches of some sort running through the house. There were no chairs outside for sitting, no beach chairs, no beach towels and no BBQ grill as the description says. The description says it sleeps 8. Not sure how with two full size beds, a kings size bed, a SMALL couch and a loveseat, not to mention no extra pillows or blankets. We had to go buy pillows and blankets for my kids. I'm not sure what the other people that visited thought was so great about this place but my family all thought it was horrible. If I would have gotten the refund insurance I would be getting my rent back. The location is very good but I would find a different place to stay if I were you.
The pictures doesn't do justice...It was a very very nice vacation home. Right in front of the home is a place to go fishing...my granddaughter caught her first fish there. Priceless..... The only thing I could say would have made our experience better would have been wifi...and better cable...since it rained 3 days out of our week...but other than that it was amazing...already planning our trip next year.
