Too many maintenance issues and poor condition of condo

  • 2 of 5

I am very sad that I feel I need to write a negative review. I have stayed at vacation rentals 2 or 3 times per year for the last 8 years of my life and I have never left a negative review before. I booked this trip for 4 girlfriends from high school to have a 4 night getaway on the beach. When we originally arrived late in the evening, there were several items we noticed that needed to be fixed. The toilet in the master bath would not flush, the thermostat was locked at 73 degrees (a little warm for sleeping for one of our pregnant guests), and the glass door in the guest bath was broken and hanging from the hinges by a string of glue. So the next morning I made a call to the maintenance man. He was very prompt in arriving and worked to resolve these problems.

Later that day we decided to use the pool and fitness center. We grabbed the keys that were on the counter and were instructed that these would work for those doors. They worked for neither. Instructions stated to check with the front desk for any troubles. We went to the front desk and they said that they did not manage this condo and therefore couldn't help us. In fact, they said they didn't think we were even allowed to use the pool. I called the maintenance man for a second time that day. He came and was able to make copies of a pool key. Unfortunately we forgot to ask about the fitness center key and I felt bad calling for a third time in the same day so we just went without use of the fitness facility.

On our third day in the condo, we noticed that the temperature seemed to be increasing. I went to look at the thermostat and it was blank. This resulted in a third call to the maintenance man. He came and stated that the a/c was not draining condensation properly and had prompted a kill switch. He was able to fix it within an hour. At that time the thermostat had reached above 80 degrees.

In addition to the problems for which we felt immediate maintenance were required, I was overall displeased with the quality of this condo. The beds were exceptionally hard/uncomfortable, pillows were completely flat, the flooring had water damage which resulted in peeling up near the slider and there were little bugs throughout the kitchen. I kept all open food in the refrigerator (like bags of pretzels and things) to prevent them from being infested with bugs.

I decided to give this review a 2 star instead of a 1 star because they were so timely in resolving the serious maintenance issues. I have, however, never had to spend 5 or 6 hours of my vacation dealing with maintenance issues that should have been taken care of and/or noticed in the between tenant cleaning. I did contact iTrip in the middle of my trip to voice our concerns. I simply received an email saying they were glad the maintenance man took care of everything, not in the least bit apologetic. I sent another email to iTrip voicing my concerns upon the return from my trip which was left unanswered.

I stayed at this resort for 8 days. This room more than accommodated 4 woman. Very happy about the 2 bathrooms. The room was very nice, clean and large enough we were not on top of one another. The only downfall I seen was the water pressure. Thank You, we enjoyed our stay!

Great Place!

Great location near beach and John's pass, especially for the price. Bed were not that comfortable and shower had poor water pressure. Other than that, great unit.

Nice stay

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, her friend, and I had a great stay! The walk to the beach was close and easy to get to and John's Pass was just a few blocks away. The condo was very nice and in a good location. My only complaint would be that 1 extra garbage bag and 2 rolls of toilet paper are not enough for a 5 day stay with 3 people. :( I used my walmart bags as garbage bags for the last 3 days we were there because I refused to buy garbage bags on vacation! lol

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this condo last week. Our children are 7 and 9 and naturally their main concern was the swimming pool. The pool at this condo was well maintained and never crowded. By looking at the pictures I also thought the beach and johns pass was a much further walk than what it actually was. The condo itself was well maintained, the only complaint we had was the TV would turn off randomly. Normally we don't watch much TV on vacation so we weren't too concerned about the problem. Overall, we highly recommend this unit. It's in the perfect location and has everything you'll ever need.

Pick from houses, condos and cottages, and get ready to enjoy sugar white sand and warm breezes. Vacations in the St. Petersburg area offer abundant outdoor recreation – on and off the water – a lively arts scene, and award-winning restaurants.

Madeira Beach, located west of St. Petersburg is home to John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, a fun attraction for all ages. John's Pass, or the Pass to locals, offers top dining and nightlife options, family-friendly attractions, shopping and water sports. While walking the 1,100-foot boardwalk, see alligators at The Alligator Attraction and dolphins playing in the Gulf's waters.

Madeira Beach's restaurants welcome family and friends to try the fresh local flavor. Many top-rated restaurants at the Pass feature entertainment, specials and events as well. The Seafood Festival at John's Pass – held annually in October – hosts more than 100,000 guests to celebrate food, music, and arts and crafts.

Water lovers can parasail, rent jet skis or deep-sea fish to complete their beach vacation. John's Pass is also a popular fishing destination and brings in more grouper than any other place in Florida. Visitors can also relax while birdwatching, boating and canoeing, all within easy access of their vacation rental.

Treasure Island – adjacent to St. Petersburg – is another favorite beach town in Florida. Swim, snorkel, fish, parasail and shell at this hot spot, which was named from an early hotel owner who buried and discovered treasure chests on the beach.

Known as a secret spot for sunsets, Treasure Island's 3 miles of beaches serve as the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico with someone special. Treasure Island also offers guests fun-filled attractions and things to do, paired with restaurants serving everything from breakfast to fresh seafood dinners.
