Room has been re painted. Need to update pictures? Neat little room. It was all we needed. Had a great view. I did find two brooms Iused. Wished had a little vacuum? Nice flooring but sand in cracks and not sure it was vacuumed? But ? I swept? ( several times). Had two nights the air conditioner seemed to have froze up? Stopped cooling! Had to turn off and wait couple hours before turned back on? Still didn’t cool down? Opened the door to cool down? It was 77 in room and uncomfortable? Woke up hot . Again turned off and noticed desk I had to turn it off and open slide door to pack and getting ready to leave? If this had been during peak summer? I certainly wouldn’t have been happy! ( The sweet young lady at front desk when we checked and and out) was great! Too bad no one could enjoy pool? Way too cold? It was heated? Why not heated until noon ? Then turn heater off?
Not sure worth what we paid? Again ! Cute ! Well thought out space! And design!
Manager response:
Hi Karen, thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the view and apologize for any inconvenience and frustration resulting from the sand in the floor cracks and temperature of the pool. Please know that this is not the regular standard for our homes, as they are professionally cleaned prior to your stay and inspected the morning of your arrival so as to ensure it met our thorough standards of cleanliness. Thank you for bringing the A/C to our attention during your stay, and for giving the local team the opportunity to address and resolve this promptly. We hope we get the opportunity to host you again in the future.

Room was perfect for us! It was clean, comfortable, and the decorations were nice! They only thing we wished the room would have had was a broom and dust pan. We wanted to stay and book 3 more days but it would only allow us to book Sat-Sat a week at a time. Great experience! We would stay here again. 🏖☀️
Manager response:
Hello Dennis, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have provided your feedback to our local management team to address the lack of broom and dustpan. We apologize certain HOAs only allow rentals for so many days or certain days. We hope we have the chance to host you again in the future.

The property we stayed in while beautifully decorated, the bed was comfy, the couch comfy, plenty storage, good TV, perfect size and floor plan for us.. but was not as photographed. An update should be done to the photos
Our main concern was the moisture, everything was wet for the entire week. The walls dripped, the fridge dripped, the floor tiles were wet, our clothes got wet , beach towels did not dry. And there wasn’t a single towel rail in the place. Couple of rusted hooks in the bathroom.
And the ceiling had mold growing all over it.
The view was balcony was perfect, beach front, we loved it. But the chairs were rusted and stained our clothes
The apartment needs a broom. Beach front = amazing but within 1 day the floor was thick of sand. It needs a broom or a vacuum or way more door mats to wipe feet (we hosed off our feet everyday before coming in but to no avail.
The kitchen needs some better equipment. No saucepans (1 skillet, 1 small fry pan available) And a sharp knives - all were super dull.
So while yes it was a cute studio ON the beach it was lacking in a couple of major beach front amenities such as a drying rack, or notice to bring quarters with you to use the communal dryers, a broom or vacuum.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kerry! We apologize for the disappointments you experienced and have been working hard on making corrections: the mildew has been taken care of, new pots and pans have been ordered, and a broom has been purchased for guest use. We hope to see you again!

Loved the home and the view!

The room was pretty clean so that was good. However there were several things that could have need better. Everything in the kitchen smelled like vinegar. Especially the microwave. Couldn’t even use it since we didn’t want our food to taste like vinegar. We had to cook in the oven and quickly realized there were no pot holders. The water heater was turned down so low we had to take cold showers our first day there. Maintenance turned it up right away when we reported it. There was no broom in the room. When you are at the beach it is impossible to not get sand in your room. We finally went to the from office and borrowed one after 3 days of very sandy floors. The TV required several steps, 2 remotes and two people to turn it on. We only did that once. We did enjoy our stay in spite of these little things and will definitely be back. Of course we will request a different room next time.
Manager response:
