First let me say that I do not leave negative reviews lightly. They have to be pretty darn bad to earn a less than 5 star review.

As in the title, my biggest issue is not with the condo itself, but with the management and the lack of communication when an issue arose.

Positives: The condo is beautiful, clean, and very spacious. There was plenty of room for the 11 people in our party. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the necessities.

Now the negative: The title of the ad for this condo is "Waterfront condo w/ boat slip, shared pool, gym, & hot tub!" well first of all, and at this point not even a huge issue but illustrates the lack of accurate description and communication by this company, THERE IS NO HOT TUB ON SITE! Second, the boat slip was inoperable and completely covered with barnacles so that we couldn't have used it even if it were operable. After contacting the management company and the HOA, we were informed that THE OWNER WAS TOLD NOT TO RENT THIS UNIT UNTIL IT WAS REPAIRED, but we were already there and had a boat in the water with nowhere to dock it! We spent the entire first day trying to find a place to dock the boat. The management and HOA staff were trying to find us another dock, so we paid to store the boat (back on the trailer) for the first night and hoped for a resolution in the morning. Well, the second day, they tell us that our boat is 2 feet too long for the boat slip and there's nothing they can do to help us!!! This is stated NOWHERE in the description, the rental agreement, the dock rules, NOWHERE does it say that there is a 21 foot limit!!!! Also, there are 30 foot boats docked next to and across from what was supposed to be our slip! Anyhow, after they tell us this "rule", all communication stopped! We called 4 different people, emailed, and texted and received NOTHING!!!! We ended up renting a slip at the marina which cost an extra $200 and we had to walk to the marina every time we took the boat out. Walking is not a huge deal, but when you have little children and were promised a boat slip AT YOUR CONDO, it is unacceptable! The fact that we are home from our vacation and still have heard nothing from them and they made no attempt to help us resolve this issue, is enough of a reason for me to NEVER rent from this company again! There are plenty of beautiful, clean, and well equipped condos in the area and next time, we will be trying one of those.
Also, a couple other small issues we had and mentioned and never even got a response- The exterior door in the master bedroom does not open, the handle is broken and will cut your hand if you try to open from the outside. And the toilet paper holder in the master bathroom was dangling by one end on the wall. Again, these issues didn't really impact our trip, but definitely could use fixing and we definitely should have at least gotten a response when the issues were brought to their attention, or at least upon checkout.
I gave 2 stars because the condo is nice and would have been perfect had we received everything advertised. A hot tub and boat slip are among the main reasons we chose this condo, and there isn't even a hot tub on the property and the boat slip was inoperable!
Manager response:
Hi, Kelli! We are sorry to see you experienced such frustrations during your stay. We do mention the 22 foot boat limit in the information sent to our guests, but we will make sure it is mentioned in the listing as well. The owner is aware of the boat slip and is working on it, and the hot tub is the responsibility of the HOA. The property manager will repair the door handle and toilet paper holder. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Loved our stay but could replace balcony furniture & toilet paper choice. Great accommodations other than that! Loved the area!
Manager response:
Tom, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager for consideration. We look forward to hosting you again!
