Simple condo with great views

  • 4 of 5

This condo could have been a bit cleaner upon our arrival, but overall a great view/beach proximity for the money!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Bring extra towels they are stingy with theirs. There were 4 towels and 2 rags when we arrived (this was Wednesday) and when we requested more 2 days later, they told us 4 towels per room sorry. So we took ours back up there to turn in and they said we only do towels on Saturday. (This was Friday, the day before.) So we got some change and used the washers and driers down stairs. Bring dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper etc. Also buy ice cause you have to make your own and it's time consuming. Other than these little things, the place was clean, very spacious, great view, great location (takes less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach), and the pool was clean and nice. I would definitely stay here again.

Not recommended

Being positive. The location is great and so is the view from the balcony.

Being Negative. There is no remote for the TV in the living room and the reception is terrible. We asked the owner and never got one. We didn't do too much TV watching. But it's still a pain. The lights didn't work in the living room and kitchen. The second bedroom is a walk-in closet or dining room. No closets to hang clothes. The owner joked about how the door lock and knob were broken from Spring Break. Hello, it's September 1st! The beds aren't comfortable and the decor is non-existent. The refrigerator is rusted the bathroom walls have holes.

I have stayed at the Tiki 3 times. I know that it is an older community. I know what to expect. To quote my guest "This place isn't as cute or clean as the others we have stayed at." So, please don't give up on the other owners there.

Bottom line. This is a place for "Spring Breakers" and "Kid Stackers." Not professionals. I am going to have to question VRBO's quality control on this one.

Nice Beach - Decent Condo - Not very personal service

  • 3 of 5

First of all, my family had a blast. The complex had many families there and our kids made friend and my wife and I met several very lovely people. The experience we had was separate form the quality of the condo and the complex.

Within a week of the trip I received no communication on what to do when I showed up. I reached out to the owner several times, and he was no responsive. I called his phone number and he answered and gave me the info I needed.

Upon arriving at the complex, we were told we had to where wristbands for our stay. We were not aware of this prior. The next day, while in the surf, my daughter received a small cut from her wrist bank in the waves. When I explained this to the manager, he allowed me to take the wristbands off my children.

The condo was adequate. There was a busted lock on one door, a loose hardware on the balcony door, in general not in great repair. The refrigerator and microwave were extremely dirty when we arrived, as was much of the dishes and silverware. We felt we had to do much cleaning when we arrived. The condo was for 6 people but there were only 5 towels. We had an infant so we made due at first. there was a laundry on site. In the laundry there was no coin machine. At the main desk, they were out of quarters. I had to drive to a store and purchase something to get quarters. After doing our laundry we tried to use the towel exchange (which was prominently posted) to get fresh towels and a sixth towel. We were told it was not for private condo use, only for inclusive guests.

Otherwise we had a delightful time. I mean you are on the beach, and the complex is tasteful and minimal in a good way.

I reached out to the owner to try to share these comments, but no response.

'Loved it! Gotta' go back!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in an excellent location with easy access to the beach and the pool. Being on the second floor, its terrace offers a beautiful view of the ocean and just the right amount and volume of live music from the beach bar nearby. While not plush with carpet or rugs, the tile flooring throughout is perfect for a salt and sand environment. The beds were comfortable and everything was in working order. We tried to take good care of the place and yesterday, two days after our departure, I received and email stating that our deposit will be refunded. We can't wait to go back!

Had an awesome time.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo was wonderfully setup. We sat on the balcony and watched the fireworks. We were very pleased with everything. My puppy, Sissy, even had a great time. The only thing that might have made it a little better might have been an elevator. I have bad knees, but it was great exercise.
