We booked this condo for a 3 family vacation.
Let me start with positives: The location is great! Half block from the beach, easy 2-3 minute walk if that. Also midtown, so you're pretty central. Very spacious, full kitchen & laundry, extremely spacious, you can see both the ocean and bay from balcony.
Negatives: Extremely filthy on arrival. We checked in right about 5pm as office was closing. I did call immediately about dirty (poop stained) under wear found in one bed as we were unpacking and making our beds with sheets we had to bring. We spent the first few hours cleaning and going to Walmart to buy bedding as the contaminated king comforter didn't fit in washer. The other comforters we did wash before using. There was a dirt ring around inside of tub, hair in the other tub, chunks of food left in sink, dirty tissues under bed, vents and ceiling fans covered with dust, bathroom & bedroom wall covered in dust, shade in one bedroom broken, bathroom rugs were dirty. The tub in one bathroom did not drain properly, and we showered standing in an inch or two of water. Wi Fi was not working either. If the office was still open when we arrived , I would've asked for a new condo .
Together with some elbow grease we all pitched in and cleaned it up. Not how you want to start your vacation!
I did get a call back the next morning when office opened & they brought over a new king comforter and took away the one that had the dirty underwear in it. They also sent someone to fix the wifi. I took pictures of everything and told them in the office & was asked to email the pictures (which I did) and was told the owners hire their own cleaners. I explained this is why I was telling them and had taken pictures - do they would know the property was not being cleaned properly between renters . The person in the office mentioned maybe getting some money back at checkout, but a different gentle man checked us out and did not seem interested in hearing the complaints, seeing the pictures, or offering any compensation for our lost time spent cleaning or having to go out & buy new blankets since the comforters were dirty.
Overall we loved the condo, but it was very disappointing to show up for your vacation and find dirty underwear in your bed And then spend the next hour and s half cleaning. Once we cleaned up, we all enjoyed our stay. We cleaned up after ourselves before check out and definitely left it in much better condition than we found it.
