Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a really great unit. Actually much larger than anticipated. With 5 adults and 1 child, we had plenty of place and privacy. The best feature is definitely the view. Not mentioned in the listing is all the beach/pool items available (flippers, coolers, chairs, etc) and baby gear (pack and play, potty). We'd definitely consider staying here again.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The photos of this "luxurious condo" are lovely but the stay was nothing but trouble.

Several weeks before our stay we were informed that the pool would be closed for renovation. This was disappointing as we were traveling with a child and the pool was an important amenity. The condo management offered us a discount of $50/night for in the inconvenience. I would have liked to have booked elsewhere but we were informed too late and my options were severely limited. We agreed to go forward with the booking.

As soon as we arrived we realized that the unit was incredibly hot and stuffy. Even with all the doors and windows open. Part of this is simply weather conditions, however the unit does not have adequate fans to provide a comfortable environment. All of our party lost sleep during our three nights in the unit. It was sweaty, sleep with no sheets, terrible hot. Although the unit does not advertise AC, it is reasonable to expect management to make the unit livable with additional fans.

To make matters worse, the water was shut off for several hours during one day for "scheduled repairs". This was apparently planned and I'm not sure why we were not informed ahead of our stay. A hot unit plus lack of water is not a good combination.

The photos show a lovely ocean side path. That bath is extremity short leaving you to climb over sharp lava rock to access the nearest beach area. We are young and fit but a child or person with limited mobility could not travel the area. The alternative is walking the length of the condo property. It's nice that technically the condo is near beach access but in reality is a trek.

The unit was not "rental clean". The pots and pans are coated in grease and the coffee maker was so damaged that it appeared to be a fire hazard. Also, the balcony screen door was downright broken. It had to be lifted from its track to open or close and they lock did not work. Catching a glimpse behind a headboard or under a nightstand revealed a serious lack of housekeeping.

I have stayed in quite a number of rentals and this ranks as a poor experience.

After our say I let the management/owner know about our disappointing experience. He was defensive in his response explaining that most of what I said was not true and scolded me for not voicing my concerns about cleanliness when I arrived at the unit.

There are a lot of rental units out there. I'd skip this one.

Reviewer Comments:

Important note: It has no A/C and if there is no breeze, it is HOT. We are from Houston so we know hot and this was SUPER hot. Location and condo itself are great. We had 6 (4 adults and 2 kids) and it probably would have hosted more. Beautiful tile work. Issues were not handled in a timely fashion. One of the fans (Kitchen) did not work (3 days to replace), gas grill outside did not work (Started working next day), wasp nest in loft area (removed 2 days later), master toilet did not flush well (Never fixed), smoke alarm went off nightly (Never fixed, we finally removed from wall ourselves). We received a $100 refund for the issues above on a $1400 bill. Management tried to blame slowness of repair on a sick teen we had left at condo for 1 day.

Owner's Response: S&R 4302 is not advertised as having A/C. There are fans in every room and extra stand alone fans for guest use. This is normally sufficient with a nice ocean breeze coming off the ocean. That being said we have had an unusually hot summer this year. Guest complained about the kitchen fan. It was replaced the following day with a new one. It started to make a noise so we went back on the following day and adjusted it. The wasp nest took an extra day to address as apparently the guest in the loft area did not want to be disturbed. The BBQ's are located on the grounds of the project and not under our supervision. The propane tanks are checked on a daily basis and just need to be turned on. Master toilet drainage was within the walls of the condo and as such was an HOA issue. They were apprised immediately and it was remedied in a timely fashion. The smoke alarm was replaced early on. I do not understand why it would only go off at night. When batteries are dead it goes off day & night. Next guest had no issues with the smoke alarm. We try very hard to insure our guests have the best experience possible. Although we responded to the different issues right away, I felt some sort of refund would appease the minor detractions. Respectfully submitted: Management

Reviewer Comments:

This was the perfect for us. The condo was big and comfortable for our family of 5 and had everything we needed from beach towels to extra pillows. Location was close to town and easy to get to. The property is right next to the water which made sleeping peaceful with the sound of waves crashing. We were also able to go fishing (catch and release) off the cliffs outside and the kids absolutely loved it. JoAnn and Wayne (owner and manager) were great and responsive and provided all the details we needed. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. I highly recommend this property and will definitely try to book this condo again the next time I visit.

2nd time staying at this condo and as good as the first time. Complex is very quiet, beautifully landscaped and secure. Ocean view from master bedroom/family room/lanai is spectacular, and fell asleep every night to the waves. Kitchen is up to date with everything that we needed, and washer/dryer a plus. Can't say anything negative. Best snorkeling is a 2 minute walk north!

Reviewer Comments:

This unit has beautiful views of the ocean. Floor to ceiling windows and patio doors that lead on to a large lanai. Comfortable seating on the lanai. It was fantastic waking up each morning to the sound of the waves and view of the ocean. The condo was well appointed and had everything we needed for cooking and the beach. The only negative, the twin beds need new mattresses, the master bed isn't far behind in that need either.
