The house was in perfect conditions, and had everything we could need! Charles was extremely nice! He even offered to refill the propane can so we could cook out!
Even though it is not near the beach, it is near the bay and many restaurants. However, there is a great beach access with restrooms just at the end of the street. So you get more space with the convenience of easy beach access.
Pros: great spot on the island, baby gate, lots of dishes, it definitely felt like a home away from home!!
Cons: no washer or dryer, but the girl downstairs helped us with the towels so that was nice. Also the ice maker didn't work, wasn't a big deal just would have loved to have that instead of having to buy ice no big deal!
Pros: The condo was easy to find, close to the bay, & conveniently located to the main strip & restaurants. Chas was very friendly, easy going, & accommodating. The price was very reasonable. Living Room & Bedrooms are comfortable. The condo comes with all the basics (utensils, pots/pans, towels- btw: all of these seem to be hand-me-downs from previous guests, so bring your own if this is an issue).
Cons: The photos definitely need to be updated. The ones in the pictures seem to be when the condo was newer. The condo needs some TLC & a deep cleaning. The salty air is part of the issue with the rundown appearance, but some of it is just basic maintenance. Also, most of the surfaces, kitchen appliances, & dishware are sticky. Again, just needs a deep cleaning. Besides the need for a deep clean, I would say the biggest issue was probably the grill.We intended to save money by doing most of the cooking ourselves. Most of our menu included items to be grilled. The grill pictured is not the one currently available. The one that is being used is VERY rickety & parts of it actually fell apart when I went to use it (the ignitor does not work; the pan underneath fell off; & nothing was holding the main part of the grill to the legs, so it wobbled & almost fell over every time you lifted the lid). This issue just made the vacation VERY frustrating & a bit of a fire hazard. The grill is a perfect example of: expectation versus reality- for the whole condo.
Bottom Line: This would be a good budget rental if you could get passed the need for a deep clean & intended to spend your entire vacation on the beach. However, if you want to walk around barefoot & not question how clean the towels actually are, I would keep looking.
