The condo was beautifully decorated and was also super clean. Management called and checked on us a couple of times just to make sure that things were going well. I would 100% recommend and will be coming back again in the future!

We arrived at Crystal Shores West on Sunday evening after having our reservation cancelled on Thursday and the reserved again on Friday before going on Sunday.
Shortly before we arrived, we were notified that only one of the two elevators for the 12 story building was functioning.
After we arrived, we learned the the one working elevator would be shut down every morning for several hours to keep it from over heating later in the day. We dealt with this on Monday and Tuesday mornings.
Then on Tuesday afternoon at about 3 pm, the speaker in our unit announced that the one working elevator was being evening shut down because there was water running down the elevator shaft. Though we were on the 2nd floor, the first 4 floors of the building are a parking garage. We were not allowed to park in the garage, so our 2nd floor condo was actually on the 6th floor.
We walked down all those stairs to go eat dinner, and when we came back at 8:30, there was still no elevator working. We climbed the stairs, and decided that we were ready to leave the next morning , due to lack of elevators.
Wednesday morning, when we left at 8:30, we had to make several trips down the stairs to load our car. We found that the lack of even one elevator for several hours a day was unacceptable.
As to our condo, it was very nicely appointed, and very comfortable except for two problems. One was that the sliding glass doors to the balcony were in serious need of repair. The door in the bedroom would not open at all, and the door in the living room was only slightly better. The tracts were very corroded and would not slide. I couldn’t open or close either door. My husband could open and close the living room door about a foot and a half, enough for him to slide in and out.
The second problem was that the mattress in the master bedroom is broken on the right side about the middle of the mattress. It’s as if the mattress was bent too far going around a corner? When you sit on that side, you can hear the springs “boing.”
With a little maintenance in the condo, and a lot of overdue maintenance or replacement on the elevators, it would be a very nice place to stay.
Manager response:
Suzanne, we appreciate your valuable feedback. We have passed this over to local staff in order to review and address any outlying issues. We are happy to report that the mattress will be replaced very soon.. As for the sliding glass door, we have scheduled to have this repaired as well. Unfortunately, the elevator is something that we don't have control over. The HOA is awaiting the parts to arrive and hopefully will be operational anytime soon. We truly look forward to having the chance to host you next time, thank you.

Gorgeous views with all my family needed to make our vacation great 😊

Good location. Beautiful beach.
Heather B. Oct 2020
This place was amazing and our family loved our stay until hurricane Delta made us evacuate. Beautifully decorated and very homey. The only minor things were the sliding doors were a little hard to open and close and the king mattress in the master felt very worn. Again, these were minor issues that were small in the grander scheme of the beauty and comfort in the wonderful condo. Highly recommended!
Manager response:
We are glad to hear you loved the home. I am sorry about the sliding doors and bed. We will reach out to the local manager to have them take a look at the doors to see if they need an adjustment and address the mattress for replacement. Thank you so much for your feedback.

Condo was very nice, beautifully decorated.
It was very clean and we had plenty of towels with this stay!
Grounds were clean. Elevator entrance parking level could use some Deodorize cleaning. But that is all.
Beach was great, and truly had a wonderful 35th anniversary.
Will look to stay in Crystal Shores West unit 204 again soon.

This condo was super clean, cute, and easy to find. It’s in a perfect location walking distance from the hangout. My boyfriend and I decided to stay in just to enjoy it

Have stayed in CSW or CS next door for several years, and this particular unit has an abundance of hooks in the bathrooms to make hanging up multiple swimsuits and towels a breeze. Clean and comfortable. Views from these two condos are wonderful!

Very nice condo. Nicely decorated. Convenient to everything.
Laura M. May 2020
We loved the view from this condo, as well as, the beach in front of it. The condo was very spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Aside from a few minor upkeep issues (burnt out lightbulbs, worn-out pots and pans, and the balcony could have used a good scrub cleaning), our 2 biggest complaints were that we did have a problem with the WiFi, which was much needed for work, and could never seem to get it resolved. It seemed like it was difficult to have an available contact person to discuss issues with. Despite these issues, I would recommend this condo to others.
Manager response:
We are very sorry for the issues you experienced with the WiFi, Laura. We will be sure that our local staff checks on this and reaches out to the owner should any updates or repairs need to be made. Thank you for your feedback, we look forward to hosting you again very soon.

Comfortable furnishings, awesome view, and great location.

Communication about check-in was clear, timely and super easy. Upon arrival we found the covered parking nice but numbering of each unit's reserved spot is oddly random. We unpacked the bags onto a cart to wait for the elevators...and wait...and wait. One of the 2 elevators was out of order more than it was working the entire week. The inconvenient waits became our worst complaint and the reason for -1 star. We found the condo well appointed, nicely decorated, clean and comfortable, beds included. The kitchen was well stocked though some minimal fixes could go a long way. For example, the knives couldn't cut a thing so my husband bought a manual hand held sharpener that did the trick (left it behind for future tenants). The handles on the cookware were loose and wobbly which could be dangerous. Wish we had the right tool to tighten them because we would have. The building was quiet with minimal sound from neighboring condos, The pool was nice, though small for the size of the complex. We opted for the beach which was just outside the gate from the pool. Super nice chair rental service! The standard rental lounge chairs were set up well away from the water and we requested closer set-up, which they were happy to accommodated as long as we accepted different chairs. We really enjoyed our stay, location and accommodations. Shopping, gas, restaurants all withing a very short drive. Would definitely come back again!

We recently stayed at The Crystal Shores West and had a great time! We discovered the microwave wasn’t working when we arrived. I notified Vacasa and they sent someone to check it out. We were told it would have to be replaced and the owner would be contacted. We left for lunch the next day and when we returned, there was a brand new microwave sitting on the counter. Talk about customer service! We weren’t expecting that at all! As far as the condo itself, it was awesome! Exactly as seen in the virtual tour. Very clean and well kept. The two king beds with two baths were perfect for 2 couples and 2 babies. It’s hard to find a place with essentially two master bedrooms. We’re so glad we chose to stay here and will definitely be back! So close to the hangout that we walked one day. And there are several restaurants, surf shops, etc. very close by! We had a great time!
Darrell A. Sep 2018
This property was absolutely perfect for us. We chose it because both bedrooms had king size beds as we were meeting another couple that are close friends of ours and so this place really worked out exactly like what we needed. The furniture was nice and the beds were immaculate. Perfect spot to the beach and local restaurants. We will definitely look for this property again in the future
Megan R. Aug 2018
It was a great stay! The place was clean and had a beautiful view of the ocean. The fridge was out but it was addressed and replaced.
