Arrived with my family to a wonderful hostess that showed us everything about the house and even left us a welcome basket for our birthdays. The house was really nice and so clean. The kids loved the little pool out front. Thank you for giving us terrific vacation.
Overall my stay was just so-so. The house was not ready on time. The greeter didn't really know what he was doing. The unit wasn't that clean. For example, the floors are tile and an old school mop is used to clean the floors which really just moved sludge around. It did not appear there was a checklist for the property for inspection prior to occupying the unit. Previous rental personal items still found that they left behind.
The toilet in the main common area broke which was repaired 2 days later.
The outside umbrella was broken and dangerous upon check in which was never replaced. I had to call again to get the umbrella removed for safety reasons. I was under the assumption a new one would be placed but it never showed. This was a big deal because there is no other shade source which made using that area not pleasant.
There was a security alarm on the front door which was broken and hanging off the wall with a partially connected 9 volt battery hanging. If you connected it, it would sound a loud alarm when the door opened. When addressed, I was told to keep the battery hanging partially disconnected. No attempt to fix it was made.
There are absolutely zero towel bars, hangers, hooks in the entire house. This is quite strange. The result—a lot of towels on the floor and doing laundry a lot. Not pleasant for vacation.
The location is kind of convenient to the beach. It’s more like a 5 minute walk. There is a cart to use but is pretty worn out. So bring your own. The property is located on hwy 98 which is quite loud. The trucks driving through in the night kept waking the kids. No beach sounds can be heard or seen from this house. I knew this, but the road noise is pretty bad.
Water pressure is pretty good except for the shower upstairs in the king bedroom.
The furniture in the house is okay. Not very rental sturdy but the unit is new enough that it’s not an issue yet. The patio furniture is pretty low quality with missing screws in the arm of a chair and cushions that hold water.
I don’t think you can sleep 16 as they state. We had 7 for a short period which was good. 10 max comfortably. 12 would feel jammed. 16—at least 4 on the hard tile floor then. Again, there is not enough furniture inside to comfortably seat this many people though. The beds were pretty comfortable.
The AC worked very well which is a huge plus since heat indexes during our trip were in the 108 range.
Clean house surrounded by palm trees and great times! The pictures do not do this gem justice! The house was in immaculate condition, as was the guest house and pool. The shopping center is right across the street so even the few 'April showers' that we experienced during our week stay meant we could spend the day shopping. I would recommend grabbing some frozen yogurt from the frozen yogurt shop right across the street, my kids and I were hooked. The Gulf is right down the street and carrying all our beach gear was not a problem because it was such a short walk. The surrounding area was all so nice! It was also great to be able to spend nights out in the back of the property next to the private pool once the kids went to sleep. Would recommend this property to anyone and everyone!
Celeste is just a wonderful place to stay! The property was like-new and very comfortable. The in-law suite came in handy with my parents tagging along on our vacation. The heated swimming pool was great because the weather was a little brisk.
The guest house is completely separate from the main property so i didn't have to worry about my children bothering my elderly parents. The beach was just a two minute walk away and the beach access walk was right there! We were also able to do a lot of shopping at the Silver Sands Mall which was right across the street.
