A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Boardwalk 886 was the perfect getaway for us. The furnishings are nice and comfortable. The 2 king beds and 2 baths are perfect for 2 couples. The kitchen is well equipped. There was nothing that we needed and didn't have. It was nice being so close to Sea N Suds so that you didn't have to cook, but you didn't have to get in the car to drive somewhere either. The Island Market across the street was very convenient too, for incidentals. We were to arrive the day that Tropical Storm Nate hit, and the owners were very accommodating in dealing with evacuations, power outages, etc. And then the weather after the storm was perfect! Incredible weather. We will definitely be back. This is our new favorite place to stay.

Great Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

After traveling for awhile we contacted Larry to see if we could check in a little early if the room was ready. Larry checked and the room was ready so he allowed us to check in a little early. The condo was very clean and a great layout when you have kids. We will be back and thank y'all for having us.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we have stayed at Boardwalk 886. Our family loves it! The condo is nice and the view is breathtakingly gorgeous! Would definitely recommend this condo! Can't wait to go back next year. The owners do a superb job at making sure it's clean and if we needed anything they wouldn't hesitate! Love this place!!!

NOT a five star unit!

  • 3 of 5

This is the second review; the first one magically disappeared. This unit is aging and faded. Comfortable beds snd couch, nice, private balcony with great views. Parking bad, cleanliness poor, dust coated fake plants. This unit is OK, not the five star unit that is advertised, not even close.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your constructive review. Unfortunately your stay occurred after a long term rental and a deep clean did not happen until you departed. During a deep clean we do a number of task such as cleaning the vents and dusting the plants. We are very sorry the schedule did not permit our deep cleaning earlier. I would like to point out that we have 65 five star reviews, 3 four star, and now your 1 three star review. In your note to me [by the way when I get an email with a guest raving or critical, I never post either.] you mentioned that this was your first time renting a condo and that you really have nothing to compare our offering. I think there may have been a misunderstanding of what we advertise. We do not claim to be a 5 star hotel, the reviews from individuals overwhelmingly say our condo is in the perfect location, beautifully decorated, fantastic view and that we are very responsive to any issues that arise. For those reasons they award us with there individually arrived at rating, just as you have.

Larry was really great to work with and answered any questions I had in a timely manner. The condo was a great location and had a great view. It was as expected from the pictures. An added plus was that the Sea N Suds was on location also within walking distance of other places to eat. We hope to come back next year and would definitely rent from Larry and Jan again. Beds were very comfortable, washer and dryer came in handy, fully equipped kitchen with crock pot, blender, toaster, etc. The only down fall for someone with leg problems would be there is no walk in shower only bathtubs with showers. We ate at Mikee's, Lamberts, LuLus, Pink Pony, and Sea N Suds and all were good.
