Only issue was the heating element of the spa and the pool. We had to call the office 4-5times and the company they sent out there didn't know what to do to get it to run. Finally on that Wednesday they sent an actual pool maintenance out that fixed the problem but that also quit working Friday night. I will give then credit that they were prompt with each call.
We recently spent a fabulous week at Castle in the Dunes for a long-awaited family reunion. There were 18 of us, including our grown children and 9 grandchildren. The house and surroundings are beautiful; we loved all of the amenities, especially the pool, which got a lot of use from the oldest among us to the youngest! We really appreciated the fact that so many necessities were supplied, from the kitchen basics to the really fun frozen drink maker and everything in between. We felt very at home in the house and was so pleased that even with 18 people in the house we never felt cramped or crowded. On every level, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property, and appreciate the quick response from Compass to our questions and requests.
