This unit is nice and has a great view Of the tennis courts and Gulf of Mexico Drive. I could look outside from my screened In Porch and see people walking or playing tennis. The furniture was nice and comfortable, and the beds were very comfortable too.
However, the unit is very dated; the stove was old; one burner didn't work at all...it was not attached, , and the other burners were crooked, so the pans never cooked evenly. The sink faucet leaked, and was installed Backwards, meaning the hot and cold were reversed. The outlets along the island didn't work, and we couldn't plug things in and use them, we had to use the plugs on the other side. The windows in the kitchen are in great need of replacing, the seals are broken, so they are all foggy when you look thru them. The wallpaper in the kitchen is peeling in all of the corners, and there are big holes or gaps where it has come loose. The kitchen cabinets were painted over, and all the cabinet doors stick and are difficult to open. The floor is chipped in places, and I kept thinking it was dirt and wiped it, but it was the chipped tiles. The vertical binds in the bedroom are old...sometimes they turn and sometimes they don't. They kept falling out of their tracks when we opened them every morning. We even found one vertical on the shelf of the closet when we moved in, probably from the people before us! The toilets were very temperamental about flushing...they had plungers in all bathroom as they must know about this! Also, they are very old too, they were the lowest toilets I have ever seen. I measured them against our friends toilets in a different unit, and ours were 1 3/4" lower! We had to buy a rubber bath mat for the master bathtub, as the skid-proof bottom on the tub had worn off, and I slipped that first day getting into the tub to take a shower. VRBO has it listed as a gold....that definitely needs to be evaluated, as I've been in other units that are also 'gold' and they are much nicer!
As I said, it's old and needs updating, but Despite the lack of nicer amenities in this unit, we had a wonderful time, enjoyed the pool and the beach, and surrounding area, and enjoyed our stay at Cedars Tennis Resort.
