Definitely not updated or clean
I normally do not give bad ratings if just a couple of things were not as they seemed when we've rented places in the past but this was beyond misinformed. I also want to say possibly the owners just only have this as rental property and possibly rely on either the cleaning personnel or an agency to inform them of things needing attention and believing they are being taken care of...Although the location is a 5 star status unfortunately the condo was very very short of that. In the living room the paint on the ceiling was flaking huge pieces. We had to buy room fresheners because it smelled very musty as if not cleaned often. We also had to buy & use Clorox cleanups because the remotes and tops of everything was so sticky. If the couch was updated apparently the new one came from Goodwill. I would only sit on it with a sheet under me, it looked nasty. The kitchen did look updated and although the refrigerator was very old and has rust on the outside of it, the inside was very clean. The floors looked as if they had recently been installed. The bathroom was another mess with the wall paper having bubbles due to excessive moisture/no ventilation, plus the floors were dirty. In the bedroom the dust was at least an inch thick on everything! Including the mantle over top of the bed. There was also a paper plate with dirty napkins and underwear in the rattan coffee table cube that we cleaned out. Besides the couch and the wallpaper the biggest issue I had was it not being clean. I understand the cleaning service is on a tight timeline but this was a total shock and not at all what we're use to when renting for the week. Also the bed pillows had obviously been very used and were stained and the air conditioning did not reach into the bedroom. You had to keep the fan running at top speed to try to stay cool. Thank heavens we had a beautiful week of sunshine and did not have to stay in very much.
I am very sad to hear of all this, for the first time! I did not receive any kind of notification from this guest while they were there of any of these issues! If so, I would certainly have the cleaning co return to clean some more. Given that I have not had all these issues in the past, I feel this guest would not have been content anywhere no matter.
Clean, a little dated decor, loved sitting on balcony in the morning, and looking out to the beach. Little leak while we were there, reached out to owner and matainance person and took care of it very fast, aware that things like that happen but taken care of so fast it was not a bother to our vacation. Our biggest complaint was parking, EVERY night we either had to park in the grass or make a parking spot. I realize it was a holiday week but this was very frustrating.
Sorry to hear about the parking situation, it does get quite busy there during summer holidays. We are continually improving the villa décor as well. Thank you!
Perfect size for two people. Will be coming back for sure!!!!
Great! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Have a great rest of your 2019!!
The view was beautiful!
It was a perfect stay for us! Everything was great and there was so much storage. The view was amazing, Oceanfront and beautiful! We will be back because we loved it and Jennifer, the owner, was so easy to talk with and she readily answered all our questions. We recommend this place!
Thanks Vernon! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay!!
Nice weekend getaway.
Nice, clean ocean front condo. Perfect for our long weekend.
Thank you, so glad you enjoyed your stay!
Enjoyed our stay.
Totally remodeled is a stretch, but I will say that for the money it was a nice place to stay. The living room was changed to add a different couch and coffee table and there's a flat screen tv on the chest in the picture. The picture should be changed. There is new bedroom curtains and a new bedspread. The manager was really nice in the fact that I didn't give her an address to send the packet. I reserved and walked away and she was nice enough to get the maid leave me a gate key fob. If I owned this place I would add a picture of the sunrise I saw yesterday morning from the back porch. That was the permanent picture in my mind of this place that will never require updating. I would return for that alone.
Thank you, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We are getting new pics updated on the website soon!
