We had a wonderful stay. The home was very clean and beautifully decorated. It looked the same as the pictures. There was some minor wear and tear but nothing major that would affect our stay. Beware! There are lots of stairs to climb. If you have mobility issues, this might be a problem. The beach is just a short walk away and was not overly crowded on the days we were there. Overall, this was a great house for our little vacation!
My sister and I stayed in this complex a few years back and had a great experience, which is why we came back. Unfortunately, this rental was not great. It did have comfortable beds (but no extra blankets in the two spare bedrooms), the kitchen was adequately equipped and the decor was nice, but it was downhill from there. To enter you climb a couple of flights of steps (which we expected), but there is no landing. The top step stops abruptly in front of the door making it awkward and a little dangerous when entering or exiting with luggage, etc. The bathrooms did not have extra toilet paper and only a tiny bit of hand soap in each that was more water than soap. One bathroom had a broken towel rack and a dirty hand towel in it. The floors are very cheaply finished with linoleum which is lumpy and wavy in places. The freezer in the fridge is all rusted. The curtains on the dining area are about to fall down. The light in the second bedroom was burned out and we had to bring a lamp in from the main bedroom. The air fresheners were empty but continued to attempt to spray without anything coming out. The TV remote did not work and there were no instructions on using the Amazon Fire. The check out instructions in the “Welcome” book did not match the ones we were emailed and the Internet connection information in the book was incorrect. There were no wash clothes or dish towels. The door handle to the balcony is about to come off. No extra trash bags. We won’t be back.

Hi Darlene, we passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following: We strive to ensure that our guests have an exceptional experience with us and provide elevated levels of hospitality. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the comfortable beds and the kitchen!
- In regards to the landing, these steps were constructed along with the community, leaving us unable to modify the landing for the complex.
- As it is standard in vacation rentals, we ensure that the cleaning company has all the necessary supplies and bathroom essentials readily available to replenish for guests. We will communicate with the cleaning team and share your feedback to maintain efficiency.
- We value the condition of our home and we appreciate your feedback on the damaged towel rack, sliding door handle, burnt-out lights, and missing screws. We have already reported these issues to our maintenance team, and they have been successfully repaired.
- To address the the Amazon Fire, we want to clarify that we do not offer Amazon Fire as a service. We do, however, provide Netflix in the home, and our cleaning lady has confirmed that the TV remotes are in good working order.
We truly do our very best to deliver an exceptional experience, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays.
The house was nice and close to the beach. It was short on supplies - no TP in each bathroom, one trash bag, no extras in the kitchen. None of these things are required, but have been in our other rentals. Note to next renter - bring your own. 5 yr olds have to potty right when you arrive!! Shopping is close for these items. We would rent again - and be more prepared. Great trip!!
