Great Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was an ideal place for a vacation from the terrible winter weather back in Kentucky. We stayed most of January and enjoyed almost every moment of it. The condo is located close to everything with shopping and restaurants within walking distance. 305A is located on the ocean side of the condo building, which is sunny all day, overlooking the heated pool and gives a perfect view of beautiful sunsets. It was well equipped with all essentials. Could use a new loveseat, which was not comfortable by sinking to the middle. Overall, our vacation was great, except for the loud noise for over a week caused by the jack hammering in next door 304A which was being remodeled. We still had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

A stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from our stay and it was wonderful. The apartment was delightful, clean, bright and well equipped, all very modern and a very comfy bed. The view from the balcony is amazing, we watched the clearest and most spectacular sunset most nights! The building itself was well maintained and the pool area was lovely and clean. The booking process was great with help both from the owner and the agent. We have had an amazing vacation! We give it 10 / 10.

Awesome View of the Beach.

  • 4 of 5

Awesome View from balcony, beautiful pool. We went out everyday to a restaurant. Love it... My favorite was (Coconut Jacks), and (Mr. Tequila) and breakfast (Skye's) and let's not forget (South Beach Restaurant). Awesome time we had. Sunset was a Kodak moment. Love it.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Loved the convenience. Great location and very clean. Only issue was there were only two washcloths and one beach towel so had to buy myself and the living room fold out love seat was sunken in the middle and pretty uncomfortable. Still loved the convenience and friendliness of everyone who stayed there.

Very small beach with lots of shells. Not a good beach to walk on. We also got ate up by bugs.

  • 2 of 5

This property offers the bare minimum and no dishwasher. The pool is nice. The walk to the beach is long and hot and we got ate up terribly by bugs. We visited the pharmacy for help just to be able to sleep from the incredible amount of itching and hundreds of bug bites. I wouldnt recommend this property for more than 2 adults. The couch and chair are very worn down. The couch wasn't comfortable to sit on. We did spend a lot of time in the condo as we had terrible storms and downpours 5 of our 7 days. Wish I had better to report... this than as just our experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting a review on our property. We consider each guest's input to be highly valuable to us as we are dedicated to providing a wonderful and relaxing experience for all. I'm sorry that you felt that we provide the bare minimum. We have stocked our condo well with dishes, utensils, beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and even books and a toy chest. As we travel quite a bit and have stayed at numerous vacation rentals ourselves, we had thought that we have gone above and beyond. If any of these items are missing for some reason, guests are encouraged to notify either ourselves or our property manager and they will be replaced immediately. We will review this with our property manager to get their input and act accordingly. I'm very sorry to hear that you had bad weather during your stay. I understand that following the drought, the above average rain falls that occurred during your visit brought on a higher than average number of bugs as well. I assume that this caused a much higher water level and the paths to the beaches were flooded forcing you to walk around the flooded areas. Normally, there is a very nice beach right in front of our unit. You simply need to walk across the front lawn to the beach. It stretches to the left for about 2 miles. Again, I am sorry that the weather did not cooperate with you. Thank you for the input on the couch and chair. We had planned on replacing both this winter. Due to unforeseen emergencies, we have not been able to do this yet. These items will be replaced in the near future. Again, that you for your input.
