Great stay, condo was very clean and had every thing you needed. A little dated but a wonderful place.
Management Co excellent,responded immediately when I needed a little help.
Only problem, I would have rented again in 2019, but I was not give first refusal.
The apartment was in a great location, but needed some updating.
Kingston Arms is great! Well kept and great pool. Didn't enjoy needing to drive to Longboat to pick up and drop off keys. Really need to get key pad entry or a lock box on the door. Silly to ask people to drive all that way. Apartment could use some updating, but was comfortable with a pretty view.
RVA would like to thank this guest for their constructive points and suggestions. We agree, the view and location is what makes this property unique! Our team will look into alternative key options, as it is never our intent to inconvenience our guests in any way. Again, we thank this guest for the feedback and hope they will considering staying with us again soon.
Perfect for the Shops and restaurants of St Armand's Cirle with an Elderly relative (literally steps away) or the pool and beach with the kids. Plenty of room, nice new patio sliders, great internet connection, everything you could need. Bathrooms need a little updating, but really can't fault the unit for the price.
Great stay. Very convenient to the shops, restaurants and only a 5 minute walk to the beach.
Inconvenient for a short stay
Two couples shared the condo for two nights. The condo is a bit outdated, but comfortable. One of the showers does not have hot water, making it challenging for us all to get ready.
We found the check-in and check-out process to be incredible inefficient and inconvenient for our very short stay. The office is located on Longboat key, at least 20 minutes drive from the condo. This was not communicated prior to reserving the home, and not well communicated after reserving. Unfortunately, we were not aware of this until we arrived at the condo. It took us over an hour round-trip to pick up the key due to weekend traffic around St. Armand's circle.
Check-out is at 11am, and you have to have the key back at the office in Longboat key at that time. This also wasn't communicated until we arrived, forcing us to change all of our plans to accommodate.
This is our first experience having to use a rental agency, and we will not be reserving again. We prefer the simple method of renting directly from the owner, who have set up lock boxes and clear instructions for the rental unit.
If we were staying for a week or longer, this may have not been as inconvenient for our group.
Parking for one car is included, so it was challenging for us having two cars. We used the street parking around the area, but had to move the car every few hours to avoid getting ticketed during the day. Overnight parking was not an issue.
Overall, the location is fantastic- walking distance to the circle and the beach. The couches and beds were comfortable- we pushed two twin beds together in the guest room. The kitchen had just enough- the fridge is easily overworked and our food was frozen by the morning. Pots and pans are available.
I would recommend this condo for a family staying for a longer trip. Bring your own beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc.. no amenities are available for beach trips.
