  • A Place to Crash


    This place was alright. However, I would not stay here again. Unfortunately I have. More negative things to say then positive. Let’s start with the positive.

    I was really happy with the the items available to use in the storage closet. Such as, chairs, an umbrella and beach towels. I liked the easy access to the property with the keypad entry and we had access instructions well within the time we needed. The appliances we used worked just fine and there was plenty of hot water and enough space for three people. The lanai was tiled well and I liked the drying string hung out there too.

    Ok, for the negative feedback, here goes. Half of the lightbulbs were burnt out. It was so dark. I was using my phone flash light to dig through my suitcase. If i had no light, then the cleaners had no light-how did they get the room clean? The bed in the master is really big, that was kind of nice but we could not access the closet on the other side of the bed, so in that small room you have a bed, two suitcases on the floor and no room to walk. In the dark. Because there is no light.

    I love coffee and I was pleased that there was a coffee machine that worked! However, no filters. I discovered there were no filters by checking around and seeing if maybe the coffee machine had a built in one. It didn’t. I knew because there was someone else’s grinds that I found in the coffee machine crusted in the bottom. Someone added the grounds thinking it was a built in filter then left them. This was not cleaned up beforehand. So again, the cleaning was not great and I was extra irritate because I was under caffeinated.

    The clothes line was super cool being that there is no washer or dryer. However, only one clothes pin. That made me laugh.

    We stayed a full week and were provided only three towels to shower with. No washer. No dryer and three people showering every day. It’s a lot of hanging towels on the one line where you have other stuff so ultimately its a lot of using the same damp towel that never fully gets dried.

    Ok, last one although there’s a few more nit picky things. The pull out bed was in my top 3 worst beds ever. My kid had to sleep on the bed and woke up like an 80 year old cement worker every day.

    I feel bad to report such negativity, we were great full for the space. It did the job but honestly, it made the first leg of our trim stressful. I didn't realize how stressful all the things made our life until we arrived at our second VRBO and it felt like a relief.

    Best of wishes moving forward

  • Not recommended for most


    The unit was clean from what we could tell for the brief time we were inside. Our interactions with the property management team were pleasant. However that’s where the positives end, and the negatives begin.No air conditioning in the unit, and it was miserably hot from the moment we walked in the door. No privacy, we could hear the upstairs neighbors on the deck like they were sitting in the same room with us. (They were talking in a normal tone) Less than ideal neighborhood for vacation rental. I would like to post pictures for anyone considering this rental to make a more informed decision. I think the picture of the "on-sight laundry" sums it up very well. The pictures on the ad are not inaccurate but they don’t show everything. My wife and I were there for only a half an hour and walked away from a substantial amount of money rather than be miserable for the rest of our vacation. I have written a more detailed, very similar review on the Evolve property website. This has cured us from ever using VRBO again. We will stick with brand name resorts and hotels because we know what we are getting for our money.

  • Less than desirable neighborhood with a mouse infestation


    Not impressed. We paid good money for what was little more than a down stairs apartment that had mouse droppings on the countertop, next to the cabinets, and on the night stand. The warming drawer of the oven had the start of a mouse nest too. We could hear them eating during the night. Also, the toilet was loose and felt like it was going to buck us free every time we leaded to wipe. We also listened to a domestic disturbance close by and spoke with the police one night. Finally, the sound proofing between our bottom floor room and the upstairs apartment was non existent. We could hear every word and move that they made. Not worth your money at any price.
