Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been a professional travel writer for the last twenty years. I have stayed at the finest five star hotels all over the world. A few weeks ago I stayed at Bunny and Jim’s condo and it was simply perfect. I loved it because the price was reasonable, it was clean and quiet, and footsteps away from the most beautiful beach in the world as well as a fun casual place to eat and drink. Unlike at a traditional hotel I had a well-stocked kitchen, which gave me the option of “eating in”, a washer and dryer, and the layout was so spacious it felt like one's ’own home not a tiny hotel room. I highly recommend it, give it five stars and plan to return as often as possible.

Finding balance in paradise

  • 3 of 5

The positives: Grace Bay Beach is gorgeous. The central location of the apartment is ideal for easy access to groceries, restaurants, shopping etc. One does not need a car. The apartment has spacious rooms. Everything was extremely clean. Thashena was timely in responding to a few matters that came up. Bunny was also attentive and even sent a follow up to ask about a member of our family who took ill on the trip.

While the apartment is exactly as described, some reading between the lines is in order. The Plaza is a 3 story building behind OCWest, on the main road and has businesses on the street level. There is absolutely no view from the main living area unless you stand in the windows looking out sideways between the large, permanent shutters, which keep out the direct sunlight. While one does not spend much time in the apartment during the day, there is either a view of the shutters, or the parking lot (if one chooses to sit on the entry area to the apartment) upon return from a day at the beach. For some this may not be of concern, but as I would not have chosen this set up had it been clearer, I think it worth mentioning.

Another small item worth mentioning is the ridiculous beach towel "matter". Apparently the managers of OCW and the owners of the Plaza are at a stalemate over Plaza guests using OCW beach towels. As such, we were not permitted to use hotel towels. On the down side from the apartment, this means bringing sandy, wet towels back every day. There is no outside space to hang the towels to dry. And, depending on how many times you wish to use the same towels, it means doing laundry on vacation. What's more, since the towels provided don't match the OCW towels, we seriously had the security guard tell us we should not be using the ones we had. This is not the fault of Bunny and Jim, but perhaps by bringing it up here, management will figure it out so as not to inconvenience guests spending money in their bars and restaurants over towels.

One very correctable matter is the mattress in the master bedroom. It needs to be replaced. My husband and I both tossed and turned. And, I would suggest adding a drying rack for damp suits and towels to the closet. One does not have much room to air dry wet things.

Perhaps my concerns are of no matter to other guests, and if not, the apartment will be perfect for you. Very nice owners and property manager.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our location, as you mentioned, is in the best part of Provo and in the heart of the World Number One Grace Bay Beach resort area. Our guest rates are just a fraction of the neighboring properties. A car is not needed and our central location, as you say, “is ideal”. Thank you also for your comments. Our guests’ experience is important to us and we strive to make it the best possible. We are fortunate to have Thashena, as our on-island property manager. We were pleased to hear that she was able to quickly assist you with the issue that came up on Christmas eve. Thashena has already replaced the mattress in the master bedroom with a new “pillow top mattress” and we thank you for the suggestion to purchase drying racks for the bathrooms. We were sorry to hear about the misunderstanding about the towels at Ocean Club West. We do supply linens (including towels) and have a full laundry facility in the suite. The pool and beach attendants and our security personnel are alert to ensure that resort facilities are used only by guests registered at OCW and the OCW Plaza. We make sure that all of our guests are registered with the hotel and with their staff and hotel security. Security will routinely check to be sure that people using the resort are registered as guests. Thanks again for your comments and helpful suggestions. Bunny and Jim

The condo can use a lot of improvements. DO NOT STAY HERE!

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at the condo last week, 12/17-12/23/2017. I don't even know where to start. We got there early but was able to come in at 2PM to quickly changed and went to lunch. The condo has a Queen bed in one bedroom and we woke up with a backache every morning. The mattress creaked every time we moved and is very very old and uncomfortable. The other bedroom has two twin size beds with similar conditions. We have 3 grown kids so we needed a pulled out couch but the condition of the pulled out couch is the worse, springs are missing/detached. After pulling out the sofa bed, we decided to not let our daughter sleeping there but instead using the roll away bed. This is not much better because there is a gap in the middle so she couldn't sleep comfortably. We were charged extra for the 5th person and I think it is outrageous giving the condition of the pulled out sofa and the roll away bed. You're not allowed to use the resort's towels even though my confirmation email said we can use the resort's towels. The condo provides you with 2 sets of towels in each bathroom and a few beach towels. After we were told (by the security guards) that we have to bring our own towels, we needed to do the laundry on Wednesday night. The washer broke and flooded the condo, spilling water into the hallway, kitchen and living room. My family ended up mopping the floor for 20 minutes. The dryer makes very loud noises so you can't watch TV or talk while it is running. The dryer doesn't work properly either. After an hour of running, I decided to hang the towels on the chairs all around the condo. The property manager came to inspect the flooding and offered to get a repairman come the next day but we didn't want anyone to come to the condo when we have personal items all over the condo. The fridge and the A/C also make loud noises periodically and that was very annoying. After a day of excursion or out on the beach, you want to come back to a comfortable sofa or chairs. There is no such thing, the pulled out couch and the chairs are dirty and sink in when you sit. I sat on the dinning room chairs because everything is just either dirty or uncomfortable. If I had to do it over again, I would stay at the resort so you can use their towels, bicycles, kayaks, paddle boards, etc... You get no such benefits from renting privately. DO NOT STAY AT THIS CONDO.

Eight Nights in Paradise, Best Value Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our highest expectations were easily exceeded. Every day was picture perfect with so many things to do. We dove with Provo Turtle Divers and the did the four hour Big Blue Eco snorkel tour, both were great.

The pool at Ocean Club West is beautiful. Just past the pool and onsite restaurant is the beach. There are truly no words to describe this world #1 ranked Grace Bay beach, which is almost at your doorstep. Why go anywhere else?

There are so many outstanding restaurants nearby, but we also had many meals in our suite. There is a well stocked and modern Gourmet IGA grocery store that is about a three minute walk. Our suite was large and comfortable with a dining area and large full kitchen. My family slept well in this quiet condo.

We did not need a car in this location in the heart of Grace Bay. The best shopping on Provo is all within a short stroll. Right across the street is a great French bakery, an ice cream store and another dive shop.

We rented a car from Avis on a Sunday to go to a local church. We used it for the rest of the day to explore, but honestly, there is so much to do around the Ocean Club West Plaza that we had no need to go anywhere else.

Doing business with the owners was very easy and straightforward. We got much good advice and "local" tips. We hope to return soon.
