Guestbook comments from the manager

This condo was fantastic on all levels. The price was very affordable, the condo was spotless, recently renovated and larger in size than we imagined and the view of the water was great as well. It had a heated pool outside which we were not aware of at first, but once we figured that out we took full advantage of it. This condo even had water inflatables and toys for those people who have children. This condo complex is literally off the beach which was great to walk on the sand in the day time and try to find some cool shells. During the night hours it was very quiet and peaceful. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to rent a condo for a steal.

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

All rooms in the unit are updated & I loved the decor. There are wall mounted TVs in both bedrooms & a dvr in the living room. Great value for the price, we paid for 3 nights & got 4th night for free. Great view of the bay since you are on the top floor. Realjoy was very easy to rent from. They have door codes so you don't have to carry a key. However, you do have to pay to rent beach chairs if not renting a unit directly from the resort. The Realjoy units I looked at online appeared to be more updated than the ones managed by the resort. The nice beach chairs/umbrella rental is $30 a day or $25/day if you rent multiple days. The condo is in close proximity to lots of restaurants & stores, not walking distance but a short drive. We would stay in this unit again :).

Big disappointment

  • 1 of 5

The pictures of this unit looked great, but in person, what a dump! The guest shower drained slow, the toilet paper holder was rusted, the bottom of the bathroom door was cracked, shower curtain stained, and the toilet barely flushed. The refrigerator is rusty and missing the whole bottom drawer and shelf. The king bed is hard as a rock. There was someone else's blood, lipstick, and hair on the pillow cases on the King bed. The area rug in the living room was stained, but it matched all the stained throw pillows in the living room, so maybe they were going for a theme here? The glass coffee table has a cracked off piece of glass in the corner. The bar stools were frayed, and scrambled eggs were still on the seat of the kitchen chair. We had a better view of what our neighbors were doing in their living rooms than we had of the beach. The grounds of this complex are very out dated, the carpets in the hallways were stained. We actually left a day earlier, because we could not stand one more night there.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear about your disappointment in our unit. After receiving your review, we discussed these issues with our operations team and we have no record that you contacted us during your stay. We would have been happy to send a maintenance technician to the unit to assess and repair any necessary items had we been given the opportunity to. We have since repaired most of the items immediately following your review, and any items that we were not able to repair right away, we are working with the owner to discuss possible options for additional improvements to this unit.

Labor Day Disappointment

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival, the condo was a great disappointment! All furniture is very worn and dirty. The king bed in the master puts a new definition on uncomfortable. The condo was not cleaned properly. The Ac system at best never got below 75, and only when all windows and doors were covered. Floor fans are in the condo to help you survive! This condo really needs an updating or removed from VRBO! Holiday Surf and Racquet Club was well kept, but it is old and dated also. I would not recommend anybody to book this unit!

Owner's Response: We are so sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay. Our Ops team is doing a full review of the unit this fall to figure out what needs to be fixed or replaced, and what just needs a good deep clean. We wish you had contacted us during your stay so that we could've tried to fix the issues you encountered or have made it right. Again, we are sorry that you were disappointed but thank you for your feedback, it will help us to improve this property for future guests.
