Awesome!!!!!5 star

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation!!!!*

Aqua 801 is beautiful just as pictured and the owner is wonderful as well. I had a question about our check in when we first arrived and Melissa called me back with 5 minutes to discuss.

It's all you would ever need. It's clean, well kept, in a great location.....I could go on and on.

The room had everything you need,

fully stocked kitchen, even down to the tupperware, granite countertops, comfortable beds with plenty of extra bedding and tons of toys for the kiddos while on the beach. The units decor is VERY NICE with new and updated sleek appliances and furniture.It even boasts a 60" flatscreen and PS4 in the main living room. It's a very spacious unit with an amazing view and large deck over looking the pool.

We are looking forward to staying here again next year. 5 star with a doubt!!!!!!!

Great location, great room!

  • 4 of 5

This unit was one of the best we've ever stayed in. Corner unit with lots of space...perfect for a large family. Nice furnishings and a great view!

The building has free WiFi but the internet connection is very slow (assuming you're on vacation, no big deal).

The only "issue" with the facility is that we felt it could use an additional elevator bank. During check in (as expected) both elevator banks were extremely backed up. Expect a 25-30 minute wait on arrival day or be prepared to take the stairs. It got better as the week progressed, but there were still several occasions where we had wait for "the next elevator" due to the first one being full. *NOTE: Our stay was during the week of July 4th so it may not be this way at other times.

Parking is in a (mostly) covered garage across the street with a sky bridge connecting to the Condo. If the garage appears full, note that there is a separate entrance to the "basement" section of the garage. This entrance is located towards the back end of the garage past the first main entrance (not signed so you may not realize it's there).

Owner's Response: Elevators have never been an issue at AQUA! We have 3 sets of elevators and they are the fastest on the beach in PCB! WIFI is slow when AQUA is sold out but the Board just approved fiber optic installation! Installation is scheduled for 2018! We are so excited as this will make AQUA an even better place to stay!

This is the absolute best of the best!! We were there from 7/16/16-7/23/16 and we enjoyed every minute!! Melissa is awesome to work with! You will not be disappointed at all! I could live at this condo, because it felt like home! When my family and I go back to PCB, we will definitely stay here!!

The listing is exactly what it states!! The location is the best! Walking distance to Pier Park!! The layout was the best. We never felt like we were on top of each other. Everyone had space! There were 9 adults and 1 child. The property is beautiful! Absolutely beautiful!

We will back here, no doubt!

Thanks Melissa for sharing your condo, a wonderful home away from home!!

Love Aqua and PCB!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our family vacation and weather was superb. We had ten in our group and only three chairs on the balcony for the awesome view of the ocean so standing room only for most. No chairs on the balcony w/ the view of the city. We liked the spaciousness of the condo but the couches were not in condition for good sleep and we lacked needed mirrors in the two bedrooms, etc. Overall it was a fun time and the condo accommodated us! Nicely decorated but lacking comfort.

Owner's Response: Updating response as I just added to new fold out sleeper couches to this unit with the newest best possible tempur pedic mattresses available for fold out sleeper couches! This condo has only ever received 5 STAR Ratings. The guest never contacted me to let me know what items they were concerned about or I would have made sure they were provided to the best of my ability. I tried to call the guests and try to understand and make it better and they were very rude to me and I will be reporting them under rate your guest. The items they complained about are listed below with explanation. 1. No chairs on balconies. I do not put chairs on the guest room balconies in protection of children playing in the guest rooms and on the balconies while the adults are in the living room or on the main balcony so that we do not have anything negative or catastrophic happen. You are more than welcome to put your own chairs on the additional balconies and supervise. 2. The fold out sleeper couches are for additional guests and typically meant for smaller children. They are fold out sleeper couches period and advertised on VRBO correctly. I have never had someone complain not once in regard to comfort in this condo! The beds sleep awesome! The only complaint the guests had in her review was the fold out sleeper couch of which is ridiculous. 3. The mirrors in the guest bedrooms is not a fair complaint - Each bedroom has private great bathrooms and have mirrors and only one of the guest rooms does not have a mirror attached to the dresser but has a bathroom as big as the room itself and there are plenty of mirrors in this unit. Guest were petty and rude and will not be allowed to rent with my company again. I am glad that at least they found some happiness in their vacation as they stated they loved Aqua and PCB! If you cannot be happy in this unit, you can't be happy anywhere!
