Overview

Ilexhurst Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

What more can I say? Directly on the beach with an elevator and heated pool. I love this unit because it is the farthest away from the pool and private. I, also, have 3 other studios in the same complex, VRBO #441182, 344008, 343756 . This unit has an obstructed view to the north but an awesome view to the south. I am disclosing this because I am honest and do not want a critical review. My place is super clean and remodeled with bright colors and new tile!!! This is an awesome place to relax.

King size bed with a new mattress and 2 twin pullouts from couch and ottoman. Full size bathroom with tub and shower. Full size refrigerator with icemaker, 2 burner stove and microwave. No, there is no oven but why bake!! All pots and kitchen accessories provided. My condos come equipped with WIFI , 40 inch TV and DVD Players. .

2 personal beach chairs, beach umbrella and small cooler for you to use.

Please note this is a corner studio with no separate bedroom quarters. This is a fabulous place to stay and relax!! YOU really do not need much more than the elevator, heated pool and the awesome beach.

I accept VISA and Mastercard payments. ONLINE INVOICING OFFERED!!

Fabulous Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a week stay at By the C. It was the perfect amount of space for the two of us. We arrived a little early and our room was already clean and ready for us. It was so much fun to open the door to our condo and immediately see the ocean from our balcony door! As Michelle clearly states in her description of the unit there is a small home and tree located to the right of the balcony, but you have such a wonderful view of the beach on the left the home on the right isn't a distraction, it also provided shade in the afternoon so we were able to enjoy the balcony during the afternoon hours. We had the opportunity to meet Michelle while we were in Anna Maria and she was a delight. She recommended a local restaurant and it was the best meal we had during the week. Unfortunately our AC unit broke, but luckily it happened while Michelle was at Club Bamboo and we were on the balcony eating lunch. She immediately took care of the situation and had a repair man out within 2 hours. She brought us her personal fan to use while we didn't have AC. The condo is so close to the beach, we enjoyed just grabbing our bag and chairs and walking directly to the beach. Michelle has provided very nice beach chairs, umbrella and a small cooler for guest use. We have no complaints about the unit, reservation process or the facility itself. We had a wonderful stay and hope to come back to By the C and stay again!

Wonderful Unit with amazing owner

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from staying in Unit #117. Beautiful view and right on the beach. Room was clean and the owner stopped by twice during our stay to check and make sure everything was good and if we needed anything. Michelle could not be nicer and response if you call her is almost immediately. Have stayed in her units 3 times now and could not be more pleased. Looking forward to next year already.

Dirty Motel

  • 1 of 5

I booked this place based on the amazing reviews and I have to say I was less than impressed with this place. VRBO describes it as a "condo" but it's a motel called Club Bamboo. My husband and I were both horrified as we pulled up and realized that this place was a motel. But at least it is a beach front property as it was described. We didn't spend much time in the condo and left as quickly as we could.

The bathroom was the worst part. The shower smelled of mildue and I questioned whether it was cleaned because there was hair in the tub. The toilet bowl brush was left out and it was turning brown. So disgusting. The fan doesn't work very well. The bedding had stains on it and it reeked of cheap laundry detergent. The sheets were so old it was pilling and uncomfortable. My husband and I didn't sleep very well because the wall AC was so loud.

To top off this nightmare, my husband went to the office and asked for more toilet paper and they wanted to charge him a dollar for it. I definitely don't recommend this place.

Charming Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo at Club Bamboo (By the C) was exactly as described. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. The color of the water was amazing. The island free bus was a real treat also. Our favorite restaurant was the Beach House!

Excellent Small Condo for a weekend

  • 4 of 5

This was a well kept condo and it was exactly as described. It is perfect for 2 people that only plan to spend 1-3 days in an area that normally rents by the week or month.

Two complaints - NEED MORE LIGHT & LARGER BULBS IN THE EXISITING LAMPS & need luggage racks for 2-3 suitcases.

Was clean and great bed.

As pictured and described

  • 5 of 5

This unit was exactly what I expected because the pictures and description were absolutely spot on and true. Great location on the island - not too far north or south in either direction, which made travel around the island as well as to Bradenton, Cortez, etc. a lot easier than if we were located elsewhere. The unit was furnished with everything we could have needed. It was clean and check in/out was a breeze. Being directly on the ocean was priceless! I only wish the sliding glass doors also had a screen door option so we could turn off the air conditioning at night and listen to the ocean!
