Overall a pleasant experience, except for a few things as described below...

  • 4 of 5

This is what I wrote to the owner...

Here are some things that I would like to bring to your attention:


- Overall the place is nice and clean.

- The pool is great.

- Convenience to the beach

- many amenities available


- One of the blankets was not washed, and have a very bad stain. We washed it and that stain came out, so I wonder about the rest of the bed covers

- Many of the non-stick cooking pans have bad scratches, and should be replaced

- Most of the metal baking pans are rusted and should be replaced

- Some glasses have bad cracks on the rims and could cut hand while washing if not paid attention

- The pull-out mattress is in a very bad shape and should be replaced.

- The exhaust fan in the master bath is not working

- The wireless connection should have security code enabled instead of being public

- The carpet is torn and should be replaced

- The coffee table leg is broken and should be fixed

- The coffee maker should be replaced because the burner is very badly scratched

- The cutting board should be replaced since it's badly scratched also

Still AWESOME!!!

This was our second stay at this condo within a 4 months time period. As with the previous stay, everything was like the description. The view is fantastic...both beachside and lagoon! Everything you may need and more is provided. The only issue we experienced during this stay is that when showering in the master bathroom the water did not drain properly; therefore, you stood in water. This was easily dealt with (although an inconvenience) by using the other bathroom - since it was just the two of us. We will return whenever we can and I highly recommend it!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the heads up about the drain. It has been a long summer with a lot of showers and hair washes. The plumber and I will have a discussion. Hope to see you next summer.

My family and enjoyed the condo, pools & beach we hated to leave. The condo was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. Bennie was a pleasure to work with and hope to rent next year from her also.

Beautiful view! Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

The 20th floor of Crystal Tower was the ideal spot for our getaway. No one walking around above us & making noise. Gorgeous views from the front or back. Long balcony overlooking the beach. Chairs for 6 + 3 small tables. Spacious kitchen/dining/living area. TVs & DVD players in LR & both BRs. Smaller BR has great views of the bay. MBR has its own sliding door (as well as the LR) with sprawling beach views. Loved watching the dolphins. The place was spotlessly clean and we couldn't have had a better time. Indoor & outdoor pools, a workout room, & a lazy room. This place has it all! If I'm absolutely looking for negatives, I'd say the carpet could use replacing, although it was fine for us & a dining table on the balcony would have been nice so we could have eaten meals out there. I would rent this place again in a heartbeat.
