Guestbook comments from the manager

Really pretty and nice place. Loved the stay. Close to beaches, shopping, and dinning. Or everything was there at the house if you wanting to just stay in and eat.

The home exceeded our expectations. The RelaxontheBeach staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Their website is easy to navigate and full of helpful information!

In dire need of a deep cleaning

  • 1 of 5

Good location and a short walk to the beach. The lady who handled booking the rental has wonderful customer service skills.

The home had 2 spoons and approx. 4 forks. The home was very dirty, with beer/soda cans and other garbage left behind. Many of the TVs / cable didn't work correctly. There was broken glass left on the patio. The pool has safety issues, with several from our group (and the group next door) being shocked when in the pool.

There is no central management office to visit, as their listed address belongs to a completely separate business. As such, it's too easy for their staff to postpone responses or offer excuses (sudden personal emergency, but nobody else could cover for them?).

Nice, big house with a lot of room. Could have been a bit cleaner when I got there but nothing we couldn't handle. Overall, it was good.

Reviewer Comments:

The unit overall was in decent shape, nothing too bad to ruin the week. First, on the kitchen side, there really wasn't too many good sized pots or pans to be able to cook food for more than 3 people at a time. And in a house that sleeps 14, there need to be bigger pots and pans. Also, there were only 2 forks and 3 spoons in the whole unit. Second, on the technology side, there were no batteries for any of the remotes on the bottom floor and two remotes at each tv that didn't work for anything. In the master suite, the TV was unplugged and the cord was too short to be plugged in at firsts and needed to be moved to work. And, while the neighbors had a 40" flat screen tv in their living room, we had a 20" projection tv that had to be 15 years old. House in need of a little bit of TLC to make it a perfect stay. Thirdly, when we first got the rental property none of the doors were lock and there was garbage on one of the back balconies. This made me a little suspicious because our neighbors had already checked in. Overall, this would be a nice place for a group of spring breakers that just want to hang out at the pool or beach all day. The bars are too far away to walk to, and with no uber and lyfts, taxis can get expensive. I would not recommend this place to a family but for spring breakers like us, it worked just fine.

Owner's Response: We're glad you had fun at the beach. Paradise West was very busy for college spring break this year, and it had taken a bit of a beating before your arrival, but we thank you for being a good sport, and for taking the time to write your review. We're in the process of doing upgrades, so all of your issues are being addressed. Thank you again!

Reviewer Comments:

We had 14 people stay in the rental for the week. The amount of bedrooms and bathrooms was wonderful. All bedrooms had a balcony which was very nice. Nice location, just a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed having the pool. The 2nd floor tends to be very warm compared to first and third levels. The rental itself needs a good deep cleaning. There was trash under beds, under couches, behind dressers from previous renters. The only other issue we encountered was with the adjoining rental. They had well over the amount of people staying there that they should have had. Made for very crowded pool at times. I will say though the noise from the adjoining rental was not excessive by any means.

Reviewer Comments:

Paradise West was probably a Paradise 5 years ago. It was clean but not maintained. Many Chairs around the pool were out of service because they were broken. Inside had similar issues of broken dinner chair, light bulbs hanging from the socket,doors on cabinet would not close, and the lists goes on. We had fun because our family has fun no matter were they stay.

Reviewer Comments:

The review of this property may read like a mixed bag. That's because I feel that is exactly what the property displayed. There are some very nice things about the property. The pier to the lagoon and the swimming pool were wonderful. The location is fabulous. The accommodations inside the property is where they need to put some work. I realize it's a beach vacation and generally you are going to be out and about but the appliances, electronics, and furniture need to be replaced. The cleaning services did not do a good job at all. There was sand and glitter throughout the inside, and we found a condom on the ground outside the rear stairway. Overall this property is fine, I would not likely return.
