Guestbook comments from the manager

'My little dog and I enjoyed a wonderful four week vacation in this rental. The owners were always responsive to my questions/concerns/requests starting from the initial rental inquiry to the check-out instructions. This is a very comfortable rental with ample space and a separate bedroom. It is light and bright! You can't argue with the location - it is close to everything; about 5 minutes to downtown West Palm, 15 mins to Palm beach and nearby to shopping and all the sites. I appreciated the dog-friendliness of the rental. The amenities at the property were well enjoyed, especially sunning and relaxing by the pool. Unlike a lot of renters, I suppose, I like to prepare my own meals. As a result I found the kitchen to be challenging, but it was generally manageable. I would certainly stay in this rental again and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing spot for a getaway.'

Great price and location

  • 4 of 5

We rented property as the price looked great. Initially were not impressed at all- very small, the floors kind of dirty and smell of cigarette smoke never left the house..wifi actually never worked. For couple of nights one of us slept on a love seat as apparently sleep sofa was changed to this after previous renters left it in awful state.... Uncomfortable? Yes!!! But after love seat was replaced with sleeper couch and we spend a little more time at West Palm, we realized the place is not bad after all! First of all, it s in a good location-10 minutes away from a great public beach, 10 minutes to downtown, 10 minutes to water taxy to Peanut Island. Apartment is actually is remodeled garage but it does have everything you need- kitchen, refrigerator, toaster, you name it. We are thinking about coming day some day to the same place! Washer and drier were outside in aback yard that I loved!! Doing laundry next to palm trees 👍Just need to keep in mind- bring your soap and everything you planning to use, paper towels etc. but, once Again, everything that was listed for the price, we had! Nice rental. Thank you Valerie

Good Value

  • 5 of 5

There is some small downsides with this place, but overall I think its worth every dollar you pay. No hotel in the area can match this standard vs Price. Located in dead end of a nice and quite neighborhood. I stay here for a week and I never saw any other people here. Close to everything. I will return one day!!!

Nice small quarters if you don't plan on spending a lot of time inside. The property outside was dirty and not well maintained. Grime and dirt was apparent all over the driveway and pool area; no one dared go in the water (filter was on) and "all" the patio and pool furniture was broken. Parking was chaotic as no one chose to communicate to one another on spaces; contract read no on street parking, yet I was told to park on the street if necessary. Great location on private street, but other side of fence (neighborhood) was shaky. One night someone tried to break into my car, ruining my drivers side power window. Units were not distinguished by numbers, all mail went into one unlocked mailbox. TV and WiFi were controlled by Dish, meaning you were held hostage to the weather. If you want a place to lay your head and just have your vacation at a reasonable rate, this is the place. But there is too much of a downside to offset the savings. I stayed in three different locales in my first year of "snow birding" and this is the only one I definitely will not return to. If the owner would like to speak to me for the first time directly, I would be more than happy to offer suggestions to make this unit and the others more acceptable. Thank you

A great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting this unit. The property was clean and the owner was very nice to deal with. I had two large dogs with me and stayed for a week. With a studio apartment, a fully furnished kitchen, no hotel can come close to offering what this facility does. I will rent again.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay. The owner of the unit is very nice to deal with. This is my second time staying at the place and I loved it. I reserved the unit for a week and enjoyed my stay. The property was clean, the manager was very friendly and there were no issues. I'd rent again.
