  • Everything great! Except…


    The bed, the single most important part of a unit. Unfortunately there is no place to upload a picture. The mattress has a piece of foam rubber on top. Clearly that is done to make an uncomfortable mattress more comfortable. It failed. Terrible mattress=poor sleep. Not good.

    Otherwise this is a great place. Location is excellent, clean and comfortable and easy access.

  • Room for improvement


    The location of this place is great, but the unit itself has significant room for improvement. The biggest con is that the space is not ventilated enough. You can open a single bag of chips and the entire place will smell like it for the whole day (s). This was worse in the room, where even the open door and the fan going wasn’t enough. On muggy days, like the ones we encountered, the place felt stuffy. We had to open all possible windows from the kitchen to the rest of the place. Secondly, the bathroom is not well kept. The bathtub was backed up and wouldn’t drain the water, forcing you to practically bathe in any dirt, soap, etc. Thankfully, my boyfriend was able to fix this, but the tub had significant wear and tear and there was no fan to ventilate the bathroom. Lastly, although the description of the place was accurate, image of the front was a bit misleading. There are 3 units connected to each other so the lawn chairs pictured are not really for you to sit and enjoy in a “private space”, but rather placed feet apart from the other units. Nonetheless, the location is close to the boardwalk and the beach, with public transportation nearby. I was glad to have visited with my boyfriend as I would not have felt entirely safe walking the streets alone. It seems to be a very safe neighborhood, and this is not an issue from the unit, but the neighborhood itself is not well lit and becomes very dark. This is critical information if you’re a woman traveling alone. While writing this review, I realized I forgot to mention that on the last day we had to remove all sheets and blankets (as directed) for cleaning services. We were disgusted to see how dirty the pillows were underneath their cases, with significant yellow stains. I was grossed out by this. It shows that they do not maintain the apartment well and certainly do not switch out pillows and linens regularly. We didn’t even have the chance to check the mattress, though I’m glad we saw noticed this on the last day otherwise I’m not sure what we would have done. In the end, we were only there for a few nights but for the price of the stay, I would stay elsewhere.

    Hi Maria, we want our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we apologize if you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We encourage guests to thoroughly review the listing before booking, to ensure they find the perfect vacation home for their needs. The listing does state that it's a shared yard for all the units in the building, but we’re sorry if this caught you off guard.
    - We wish you had reached out to us during your stay. We would've been more than happy to resolve your concerns and make your stay more comfortable by explaining that the yard furniture is lightweight plastic and guests are free to move it around and use it as they wish.
    - The apartments all have steel security doors that lock on the front & back of the home. They are very secure and allow for the ocean breeze to flow through the unit when the interior wood doors are left open. This is all explained in the property information posted on the wall inside the front door.
    - There are also ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom. Lastly, there's a mini split air conditioning system in the apartment as well as an additional pedestal fan in the bedroom closet to cool and ventilate the apartment.
    - Unfortunately, drains do get clogged on occasion and we have a plumbing company that comes out when necessary, usually within an hour.
    - We wish you had reached out to us during your stay. We would've been more than happy to send our plumber to resolve your concerns and make your stay more comfortable.
    - As you can see by our many great reviews, we are accustomed to providing five-star experiences, and look forward to this property hosting many happy travelers!

  • Amazing


    The place was nice, spacious, fully stocked and clean. Pots and pans were available and extra blankets as well. The manager was available to get in contact with and responded fast. Laundry room was available as well.

    Room was very dusty

    Manager not very welcoming

    Room did suit our needs but it appears there has been no maintenance or cleaning

    There is a chair that needs to be replaced and a blue quilt that is full of cigarette burns

    Hi Dave, we truly appreciate you sharing your thoughts about your recent stay. Your feedback is essential to us, and we've relayed your comments to the homeowner, who would like to address the following:
    -Our cleaning service is typically very thorough, but we understand that occasional discrepancies may arise. In the event that a guest is dissatisfied with the cleanliness of the apartment, our cleaning service is more than willing to return to rectify any issues, provided the guest reports the matter to us. However, in this particular case, the guest did not inform us of any concerns regarding cleanliness.
    -Additionally, we want to assure you that we have replacement items such as furniture and quilts readily available, and we would have been happy to replace any damaged items had we been made aware of the issue. Regrettably, the guest did not bring any such issues to our attention. Nevertheless, we will promptly replace these items to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of our future guests.
    Our commitment to providing the best possible experience for all our guests is evident in the satisfaction of numerous others who have stayed with us.
