Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most wonderful time at the condo. It is such a nice place and except for a couple very windy days, possibly due to Hurricane Sandy's visit, the weather was perfect. I even found myself in a bathing suit and swimming for the first time in about 30 years !!! We are already talking about a return visit and we will probably be contacting you sometime in 2013. We loved the patio especially loved the way the patio was surrounded by trees, plants and flowers which provided privacy and yet was not enclosed. My "kids" (all over 50 years old) loved it too and have invited themselves back !!! It was a wonderful experience and I feel like I somewhat know you and your family from the pictures we saw in various places.

Great Location but disappointing unit

  • 2 of 5

The location of the Executive Bay Club was perfect for us; close to great kayaking and biking as well as convenient to stores and restaurants. The complex itself is very nice. The beach area is well kept, as is the pool. Neither were crowded while we were there. The tennis courts are badly cracked, but we are not great players so it didn't bother us.

The unit itself is layed out like others at this complex; spiral stairs from the first floor to the second, and then a ladder to the loft. The loft is fine for children or agile adults but anyone with limited mobility would have a lot of difficulty. This unit is in poor condition. There is dirt and grime built up in the corners, all of the area rugs were filthy and threadbare. The rubber backing on some of them was gone. The tile floors are cracked and the grout is grimy. The dishes are all mismatched; bowls and cups are from the dollar store.The silverware consists of three teaspoons, a bunch of random forks and there wasn't one knife in the place that would even cut lettuce. We actually had to buy spoons and knives for ourselves to use. The t-fal pots and pans were so badly scratched that we were afraid to use them. The fridge has a broken drawer and is rusted on the bottom and the stove hums as it warms up.The beds were comfortable, but the sheets that were on the king size bed when we arrived literally had holes in them that had been mended, and the mending thread was coming out. We took them off to find a mattress cover that was stained in such a disgusting way that it would be impolite to describe it. We washed it twice with bleach and hot water just to make it tolerable. The comforter was stained and pilled. The tub in the upstairs bathroom had grime and black scum on the door tracks. The dining room chairs are fabric, and are filthy and stained. There is bric-a-brac everywhere which is all coated in thick dust. The leather couch is as described- quite comfortable. If there had been just one thing wrong, we would certainly have communicated it to the property manager, but as the days went by, it was one thing after another and none of the issues are things that can be resolved without serious attention by the owner. We didn't want to take our vacation time to try and fix things that are long term, ongoing problems. This unit has not been properly maintained and we feel as though we wasted our money on the cleaning fee.We recommend this complex but definitely not this unit.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the response from all guests and always value any responses in which we can improve the guest experience. Some of the items could have been addressed very easily and wish this guest would have discussed these with us so we could have taken care of some of these easy fixes. We never once heard from this guest and wish they would have contacted us as soon as they arrived and felt there were issues. The overwhelming response from our prior guests is positive and they always mention the cleanliness of our unit. As a matter of fact, we have many repeat guests year after year. Unfortunately, some people are never satisfied and like to complain after the fact. We will be purchasing new pots and pans as well as silverware which were valid points. Over time pots, pans and silverware get damaged and/or lost which is normal. As far as stains and torn sheets or bedding I'm not sure what this guest is referring to.

Accurate representation, well furnished, clean and very well maintained.

Owner maintained contact with us and advised of pending work being done.

A pleasure to stay there and will do so again when in "the Keys".

Wounderful quiet unit

  • 4 of 5

This unit was very well kept and clean. Had all the necessary staples. Get groceries and settle in.

The pool area was very nice met a lot of great people there.

Plenty of restaurants in the area, The Old Taverner was quite expensive for what you got, Shrimp Shack was great and plenty to eat. We like Boardwalk Pizza the best, service was fast and got to know the waiter quite well.

Founders Park had a lot to do there, they had a great beach area.

We will return to the area again. Weather was great.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed in the Executive Bay complex before so we knew what to expect from it. Excellent location, very good maintenance, lovely landscaping with many flowers, wonderful large pool and clubhouse, nice personnel at the gate, great Florida Bay views especially at sunset. But what made this stay special was the condo itself and the owner. The condo was very well equipped and clean. Many towels and sheets were provided. The washer and dryer worked fine. The television and DVD worked fine and our whole family loved lounging on the very comfortable and huge sofa. Beds were also comfortable. Having a loft bedroom was very nice instead of an open loft off the bedroom. The kitchen was equipped with every cooking need.

The area is great for water sports. We paddle-boarded, sea kayaked and snorkeled. We also took a great day trip to Everglades National Park and an overnight trip to charming Key West.

The owner was very responsive and helpful. She answered emails promptly and made our arrangements painless. We hope to return someday. Highly recommended!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This unit was quiet, well appointed, very clean and comfortable. It was as advertised and was located in a convenient area of the property near all the amenities. The owner was responsive and personally concerned to our questions. Islamorada is a great location for a variety of offshore and back country fishing with great restaurants and friendly people. Great relaxing family orientated complex.
