Lots of Hoops/disappointments
The property manager was very unhelpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was more than happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
The actual condo was clean, attractive and was in a good location. However, over the course of the week we experienced out of order elevators, a broken range (repaired on our next to last day),TV service that was unavailable for the first 3 days, and endured the changing out of washers and dryers in the laundry area. In the process we lost money on the first card we bought and then after washers changed had to purchase a new card. In addition, check-in had lots of hoops to jump through: leave car, fill out papers, go to office in an adjoining building, stand in line, get fobs and parking passes, pay $80, go back to car, get key from front desk to open lock on luggage cart, leave drivers license, take luggage through a specific door, take luggage upstairs, lock luggage cart, return key. Groceries also had to go in the specified door, which was a challenge since the back elevator did not work. The service people we ran into were surly and did not know the answer to one question that we asked.
We are very sorry this guest had a disappointing experience. We strive to give our guests the best experience. I am pleased that she was fair in mentioning both the good things and also the things that disappointed her.
She said the following positive comments:
"The vacation rental was very clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. The actual condo was clean, attractive and was in a good location."
She had the following disappointments, which we entirely understand, but were outside of our control and I will comment on here:
1) The stovetop was broken during her stay.
This is correct. We contacted our service supplier as soon as it broke and they came the same day and ordered a replacement part. Unfortunately, the part was not immediately available, so I instructed them to replace the entire stovetop at considerable more expense to minimize the downtime. Unfortunately it still took them one day to obtain the replacement part and install it. This occurred the day prior to the guest departure. Although the repair provider said the stovetop was operational, she was correct that it was malfunctioning.
2) There were issues with the elevators, during her stay.
This is correct. During her stay a number of the elevators were out of service, causing a disruption of the traffic flow. It took them about 24 hours to get another elevator operational to relieve the problem. The administration has secured funding and are in the process of replacing older elevator equipment to solve the problem. They are now all operational.
3) There were issues with the laundry service.
This is correct. The building was in the process of changing all of the washers and dryers on all floors. Although new washers were installed on some floors, they were not immediately available on our floor. This caused some confusion. I offered to reimburse the guest for the $8.00 she lost on the old laundry card, but I did not hear back from her.
4) There were a lot of "hoops" to get fobs and parking passes.
I send all of the guests very specific instructions to follow to obtain the items that are required for guests by the building. In addition I called this guest as I do with all guests to review the instructions personally over the phone to be sure there is no misunderstanding. We seldom have complaints.
I ask that you consider all of the positive reviews.
March Break Vacation
This place was amazing....conveniently located. The condo was clean and had the most glorious view of the ocean from the master bedroom. Security at the condo pool was quite strict with having any toys in the pool. My sons wanted to play catch with a small rubber back but pool policy is no toys in or around pool area. The beach is situated steps from the pool which is also convenient. Overall The Tides is an amazing vacation rental for couple and families.
We are very pleased when we receive 5 star reviews like this one! We strive to give our guests the best vacation accomodations possible, because we know their vacation time with friends and family is precious to them.
Toys are not permitted in the pool during the busy winter months to avoid accidents. However, toys can be used within the sandy gated area of the property or on the beach.
Great spot, magnificent view; and overall excellent people to rent with
The Tides is a spot we love! Is our third vacation staying here! Now, this appartment is "from another planet"! Is the best we stayed in this four vacations!!! Why?
1) Nice Beach near all: Walmart (5 blocks away), and lots of stores and restaurants through Hallandale. Also 10 minutes away from Aventura Mall. So if the day is great you go down to the pool or the beach (the appt is full of stuff for the beach: sun umbrellas, beach chairs, surf tables for kids, etc), and if it starts raining, you could go shopping or just fuzz around.
2) Family space: we went with 2 daughters (1 year and 4 years old) and this place is family friendly. This appt has 2 bedrooms and the living room, and the kitchen. There's parking space too for the car for 35 dollars a week. We also had to pay 2 "fobs" (every adult has to) for 20 dollars each to use the common spaces (pools, beach, gym, etc).
3) grest people!!! Ben & Mario Dinatale are great persons, and their team, specially Magali Alfaro, are outstanding and very open to solve any problems. We had the problem that were arriving through Irma's Hurricane and had to postpone everything for a week, and they not only had any problems, all the contrary, they gave us all the info and possibilities to refund the operation and rent again for the new dates the appmt.
I confess I was a little afraid of renting "outside" vrbo.com, but they are grest and have more than a decade of experience in renting appartments.
I will always try to rent with msfa.com first!! And we will definitely come back here!!! Thanks Ben, Mario and Magali!!
We strive to give our guests the best vacation experience possible and are very appreciative to receive reviews from our guests like this one. It makes all the effort our team makes worthwhile. This is why so many of our guests come back time and time again to stay in our apartments. We at (www) MSFA.US understand the precious time they have for vacations with their family and friends is very important to them.
Very clean and convenient. Easy to check in and check it out. Everyone was very accommodating.
We had a great vacation that was made even better by a great location and apartment
Wonderful apartment with incredible views. Highly recommended for a family. The rent process is especially easy and the communication with the company in charge is excellent.
We strive to provide the best possible vacation experiences for our guests and are very pleased when we receive this type of review. We offer quality vacation experiences with great value for the cost in all of our apartments which are available online on our website.
Everything we could have hoped for and then some.
My only complaint is that we didn't book a longer stay. This apartment was exactly as advertised. Clean, spacious, breathtaking view of the ocean. We got in very late due to airplane issues, and Ben and Marlon worked with us so there was no problem getting into the apartment in the middle of the night. We then woke up to a spectacular view of the water, and knew we had picked the right place. Ben was extremely prompt in answering questions, and we did have a problem with the toilets running, but it was taken care of when they could get a plumber. Didn't impact our enjoyment in the least.
The option of beach and/or pool was fantastic, and the pool area never felt crowded. The apartment was happily very quiet, we never heard anybody, and even in my own apartment I sometimes hear my upstairs neighbors!
Thank you for making this one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had. We'll be back next year for sure.
We understand that our guest's vacation time with their friends and family is very important to them. We strive for all of our guests to have a memorable and enjoyable time while staying with us as did this guest and her family. Occasionally, we will have minor maintenance issues, but always address them as quickly as possible so as not to interfere with the guest's vacation.
