Great Summer, perfect location and the best service

  • 5 of 5

I was staying a month with my family in this apartment. It was very comfortable. Lucy greeted us with a smile, gave us good advice for our stay. I had a problem with the internet and immediately resolved it. It's a nice condo for families, safe, quiet and well maintained. The neighborhood is safe and is close to restaurants and the beach!!! The pool at the building is very nice and the atmosphere in the building and the areas around feels great. I would definetelly recomend this Penthouse

Good stay once things settled down, would suggest some new unstained sheets, or the manager should have authorization to replace damaged and stained sheets. The bed experience was rather disgusting! Kitchen could use some updated and better dishes, frying pans, all old and damaged. A kettle might be nice. Condo was very nice, clean and more than adequate, good furniture and comfortable, tastefully decorated. However, in order to use the hot tub on the roof, I had to clean the mortar out from recent repairs. But its clean now. There was no dryer or anything to hang clothes on to dry, so that was a little difficult. I was told we had weekly cleaning, but in 5 weeks the cleaners came in once

the walk to the beach is more like 5 blocks, not 3, but not bad. The pool area and amenities are very very nice, wonderful helpful, friendly staff and everything is well maintained and very clean. Rather noisy at times in the night. All in all a good experience, just needs attention to a few details, mostly the sheets.

Owner's Response: VRBO Rebuttal Thank you again, Janet, for taking time with me after your visit and sharing your feedback and experience. We were horrified to find that you and your husband had had an initial bad experience. It was very helpful to discover that our maids had remade the bed with a set of our good linens, cleaned, but very badly bleached from the previous client. Additional sheets at the laundry replaced these as soon as Liliana our property manger learned of this. This helped us to impress on our very hard working cleaning crew that we value them feeling empowered to bring any damaged, or worn items to Lil on our behalf. We also now require laundry service only for the all the penthouse linens. Again our sincere apologies, and it was always a pleasure to visit with you by phone and emails. Wishing you all the very Best, Cindy and Sean Mahoney

A great place to to relax

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the Sabbia. The condo was clean, well equipped and spacious. Playa is our favorite destination and this condo is well located, mid way between the beach and the grocery store.The gas barbecue was a welcome bonus.

Walking time to the beach was less than 15 minutes. Six minutes to the French Bakery.

There were a couple of small issues with the plumbing, due to Playa's hard water. These were very quickly repaired (within hours) by friendly competent personnel, thanks Rudi.

The staff at Sabbia were very friendly and helpful, especially Pedro manning the front door.

The owners were very pleasant to deal with helpful with our various questions.

Excellent stay : A perfect holiday indeed!

  • 5 of 5

I must say it was a perfect holiday. Our family stay was simply fabulous. I have really no complaints. The small condo complex is simply superb. The kids enjoyed it a lot. The location is perfect to visit Mexico at affordable price. The sunset evenings were really beautiful and breath-taking. I enjoyed each and every moment in the peaceful and serene settings. The property was clean and is highly maintained.

Highly Recommended! Must visit …

Beautiful Penthouse and a Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple recently stayed at this beautiful penthouse condo. We were in awe when we walked in the door. The decorating is so tastefully done and it is totally luxurious. There was not one thing lacking.

We started our days with some Mexican coffee and Kahlua on the balcony that has a fantastic view. The kitchen was unbelievable and we prepared a few meals there. But we also tried several of the nearby restaurants and were totally impressed with the cuisine.

We went to the beach almost every day since it was so close. The beaches are absolutely stunning! Most of our days ended back on the balcony with some after dinner drinks in the Jacuzzi and some star gazing.

We are already planning our next trip to stay here and after our other friends saw our pictures and heard about our stay in this penthouse they are going to take a vacation there too. Absolutely five stars!

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place in paradise. Very satisfied with our ten day stay in Kihei Beach #603. This place made us feel at home, very nicely appointed condo unit, great kitchen and bath, beautiful decor. Location, location!, this place is near almost everything, including farmer's market just across the street!. Very tranquil settings, after great sunsets everyday, we sat right in front, and listened to the calming sound of the breeze, just below, will make your soul surrender to the beauty of it all.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very nice review, but I think you must have vacationed in Hawaii because we are not in Kihei beach. We are on Coco beach!
