Beautiful home, gracious owner but a few issues

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful, well appointed home with plenty of space for everyone! The walk to the beach took less than five minutes and was also a very nice bike ride. The pool is also very nice and easily accessible to the unit. We absolutely loved the food at the restaurants right next-door to Thirty Blu! We go to 30A several times a year and I could kick myself that I had never tried the pizza at Johnny McTighe's Irish Pub!! It was amazing, as was everything on their menu.

The owner was extremely gracious and helpful. She allowed me to check in early on my day of arrival because no one had rented the week before. However, this is where the problems began… With the management company. The house was supposed to be ready for me at noon but they had not inspected it yet even though it had sat empty for a week. No big deal but I ended up waiting for it for over an hour.

I had to call management several times that week about some minor issues which were taken care of promptly. However, I had to call them several times to fix the air conditioner on the top level. It took 2 calls and 2 days for them to respond to my first call. They just never showed up when they said they would the day after the first call I made. A few hours after the technician left, the air conditioner stopped working again. So, I gave it a day to see if it would cool down but it did not so they sent the same technician out. Once again, I got about 4 hours of cool air! By this point, it was Thursday and I was tired of calling management about it. I decided to tough it out for 2 nights. 4 girls and I had to sleep in 85-88 degrees until I checked out on Saturday morning. This was quite miserable! I had emailed the owner to let her know what was going on and I know she made efforts to resolve the problem. I told her I did not want the next people checking in to have to go through what I did but seeing the review before mine tells me they did. This was definitely an issue with the management company, not the owner!

This was probably an isolated incident so I would definitely recommend this place to anyone considering renting it. It is especially great if you have multiple children as I do and they each want their own living space.

Beautiful townhome with a few caveats ...

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful town home in a beautiful location. I was worried because the home is farther from the beach than the last place I stayed. But I found the walk to the beach to be pleasant.

The house itself is beautiful and tastefully decorated. But it would not be a good fit for anyone with mobility issues. It is three floors, with the main living space on the second floor. And the lovely tall ceilings make for long staircases!

I loved the ample space for people to spread out as there are two living areas, a TV room on the ground floor and the living-dining-kitchen level on the 2nd floor. We ceded the downstairs to two teenage boys who were in heaven. The third floor has a master suite and the bunk room. The bunk room was surprisingly spacious. I also loved having four bathrooms.

On the down side, I had a small issue with the management company. The upstairs air conditioner was out when we arrived, which made unloading the car (and carrying bags to the third floor), hot and unpleasant. I called the management company immediately, but since we had just checked in they wanted us to see if it would cool while we were there. Of course, it didn't. It was 84 degrees upstairs (76 outside). A few hours after our arrival, the temperature upstairs was 85, and the management company finally called for a service technician. Someone came later that night and fixed the problem, but it took overnight for the top floor to cool down. I also called to report that the blinds on one of the ground floor doors had come out of the wall. The management company said they would send someone out the next day, but they didn't. It wasn't a big enough deal for me to continue calling.

Finally, the kitchen is not well-equipped for cooking. If all you are doing is making sandwiches, scrambling eggs, or boiling pasta, you're fine. Anything beyond that is difficult given the lack of cooking tools, such as measuring spoons, a full set of measuring cups, a potato masher, a grater etc. Since most folks don't go to the beach to cook, this likely isn't a problem for most.

Beautiful modern beach home close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have stayed in a more beautiful setting! Due to a vacation home fallout we had on our way to Florida, Michele was able to accommodate our 13 person party in such short notice and we were able to stay in this modern updated 4 story home. Everyone had a room and bathroom. The kids enjoyed going up and down the stairs and we enjoyed the top floor balcony with an amazing view. Walking distance to the beach and an awesome ice cream shop on the corner.

Thank you again!
