Advertised Pool- 2 pools on property, one of which is not able to be used by Evolve Renters. The one pool we could use was down due to scheduled renovations a month prior to our booking (replacing liner) - NO POOL DURING OUR BOOKING.
Condo Owner and Evolve were negligent in informing us of pool closing until day prior to our arrival- refused any cancellation and reimbursement requests.
Evolve’s “SAFETY AND TRUST” representatives are unprofessional and unproductive. DO NOT BOOK WITH EVOLVE CAUSE IF YOU HAVE A CONCERN IT WILL NOT BE ADDRESSED IN YOUR FAVOR! They offer no goodwill or good business practices! (Despite their section 11 statement in terms and conditions to do so)
Advertised Beach- No one swims in this swamp/moot that extends a short distance along the property! DO NOT expect any kind of real beach access or beach experience from this property.
Television- Only 1 television mounted in Family room. Internet did not work well enough for good INTERNET TV offered. NO TELEVISION IN MASTER!
Master Bedroom- NO BOX SPRING! Hard/Firm Unacceptable mattress, dingy pillows and old dirty bedding/comforter. Not exaggerating- at this price point I expect proper bedding and sleeping. The hotel we stayed at in route to this booking provided better sleeping attire.
Obstructed View- The balcony sits back and is offset (sunk in) from neighbors allowing impeded privacy and easy viewing inside unit from neighbor.
Neighbors- This is a mostly owner occupied condo complex. Be prepared (by your impeding neighbors) to be asked 101 questions and once the owners find you are with Evolve- it’s a Hatfield/McCoy situation as you are a renter.
Overall impressions of EVERYONE I met on property was that Evolve brings down property values and gives the property a Bad Impression cause they are not a good management company.
Elevator- 2 were down during our stay- this was also scheduled service like the pool liner and posted publicly on the announcement boards- OWNER AND EVOLVE WERE NEGLIGENT IN INFORMING US OF THIS SCHEDULED SERVICE! condo is on 8th floor so only having 1 working elevator on this wing serves a slow problem.
We left our reservation dates early due to no beach, no pool, no tv to watch nba playoffs, horrible sleeping, and wasted time trying to get any type of cancellation or reimbursements from Evolve.
RENTERS BEWARE OF EVOLVE AND THIS UNETHICAL CONDO OWNER- you don’t want to spend good money on a BAD EXPERIENCE.
The Condo was very clean and had a wonderful view. Would definitely stay here again.
Totally loved the place, nicer than the pictures!! We would definitely stay again! Thanks for opening up your home to us!

The condo is very nice. We had a couple of problems but Kim was responsive and corrected the items quickly. I was disappointed with the orientation of the building - even though it has great views, it faces due North. We were there for the entire month of February and the sun never hits the balcony and only a small portion of the pool deck. This might be a good thing in the heat of the summer but it is not optimal in February.
There is a private beach but the water in the lagoon is not someplace that you would swim. The building has a very nice gym and the condo association has many activities that you are welcome to attend. There are several great restaurants close by.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay ... Beautiful Sunsets and Got to see Dolphins swimming in the Lagoon.
