Avoid this condo

  • 1 of 5

I wanted to let you know that this condo was most unsatisfactory. It was dirty in spite of a $100 cleaning fee. Mildew on the shower curtain, finger prints on the doors. The coffee maker and pot were filthy. The furnishings were shabby and the bedding worn out. The material covering the baseboards on the kitchen were curling and peeling away. The dryer was making loud noises and sounded as if something needed repair. Except for not making the beds we left the condo cleaner than it was when we arrived. The only positive thing I can say is that we could see the ocean from the balcony.

I hope this unit is not rented again in its present condition.

Owner's Response: I just bought new bedding so I'm not sure what that's about. I cleaned the condo myself so I may have missed a fingerprint or two. I just changed the shower curtain after Dorene stayed, so I was aware of the mildew and I have rectified that issue. There is some peeling occurring on the kitchen baseboards, and the dryer is louder that some, but it works well. The condo is not in perfect condition but the minor cleanliness details brought to my attention have been corrected. I think a one star rating is bit harsh. I do always guarantee the lowest rate and my regular rates are 20-30% lower than my competition.

Would have been nice.....in 1976!

  • 2 of 5

I have stayed at Pelican beach more than 20 times. This is the first time that my condo was sub par. The furniture was very old and outdated. The unit appeared to have not been painted in at least 10 years. It was clean, but, not neat. Televisions had been updated, but, the old sets were still sitting in the living room and in a bedroom closet. Wires were not hidden and hanging out halfway through the bedroom. One of the folding doors for the laundry room was leaning against the living room wall, behind an old entertainment center.

The price was decent, and the owner was easy to work with, but it took almost 2 weeks to get the deposit removed from my credit card. It's time for this unit to be be totally remodeled, then it would be a good value. As it sits currently, I would not want to put my family in it, and I cannot recommend it for yours.

Owner's Response: Pelican Beach was built in 1997, so I don't know what 1976 means. - The furniture is commercial grade, which is high quality and durable. I have never had a complaint about the furniture before. This a handicapped accessible and commercial certified furniture is required. - I knew there was some touch up painting to be done, and that was completed before I got this review. - I left old TVs to accommodate children who bring their video game systems, No one has ever complained about extra TVs, and upgraded TVs. - "Wires were not hidden and hanging out halfway through the bedroom," is an exaggeration. I discovered they had been pulled from the wall by a previous renter, but they were fixed back to the wall before I got this review. - The folding door was fixed before I got this review - The website takes 7-10 days after I issue the refund, so this complaint has nothing to do with me, as I issued the refund almost immediately after the guest's stay Overall this review was grossly exaggerated and and nit-picky. After the Peak season from April to September there are often small maintenance issues to be handled, which I do in October. Most of my guests take wonderful care of the place, but some do not and leave their mark. I personally come to Pelican Beach Resort for the beach and all the resort amenities at my fingertips, not to admire the furniture, and paint job. AND I guarantee to beat any rate on comparable accommodations.
