I wish I could rate something below this! It was horrible experience! The property we were staying at had broken blinds and everything was clearly visible from the outside. We had no PRIVACY AT ALL. We called the customer service every single day since check in and they said they will come fix it or give you a call but no one ever turned up! We had to literally walk out and find another accommodation.They literally spoiled our whole vacation.
We're sorry you were unhappy, Rupal. Maintenance is checking for any missing window treatments so we can get those replaced. We hope the compensation offered helps to convey our apologies.

I would not recommend staying at this location. The condo needs a thorough cleaning. At surface level it looks cleaned but was filthy. The storage closest doors, the top of the refrigerator and the balcony were so nasty that there was several layers of dirt that have not been cleaned in a long time. The balcony door was missing about ten shade slates that left a large visible opening so at night we placed one of the sheets they provide over the opening as a curtain. The rug in the bathroom and carpet on the balcony had not been vacuumed or swept so I ended up sweeping both. The appliances are outdated and nasty. The microwave is rusted would not recommend anyone use it. The only reason this location is getting two stars is because of the location. That was the only good thing about the experience. The basics of cleaning could not be accomplished with this property which is disappointing especially in the midst of a pandemic.
Hello, Stephanie, thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and apologize that you encountered some cleanliness issues. Please know that this is not commonplace, and we thank you for calling in order for local staff to promptly resolve these issues. We look forward to your next stay!

Tv way to small cover way to thin furniture old and long walk to beach place on outside looks like old apartments will never go back couch was horrible
Thank you for your review, Alicia. We have recommended a larger TV to the homeowner as well as newer furnishings per your suggestion. The listing does state it is a short drive to the beach; we apologize if you were expecting something different. Hopefully we can impress you next time!

The interior was nice, had nice amenities. The location was quiet, seemed to have good security and was close to the beach. Good value for the money.

This place was in a great area it was super close to EVERYTHING. Check in was pretty easy, they have like 2 or 3 pools in the complex which was nice. We were out and about most of the time , the TV’s were super small so we didn’t watch much tv. The bed was pretty comfortable our friend slept on the pull out. The drain was backed up in the bathroom which was pretty annoying when you shower by the time you get out you have water past your ankles. I did see another review that said the same thing from a month or so ago. Whoever comes to clean doesn’t do a very good job which they should considering they don’t do any early check ins .. there was cereal under the microwave idk how long that had been there. Overall I’d give it a 3.5 .
Thank you for staying at the Gulf Terrace 287. Great to know that you found the location accomodating and the condo comfortable. We are sorry if we fell short of our standard premium clean. We definitely have your safety and health in mind each clean with a program that meets and exceeds recommendations. All our units are scheduled for deep cleans. Thank you again for taking the time to leave this review and feedback, and we hope to get an opportunity to provide a better guest experience!

Our overall stay was good. Very nice and homey for our small family! However the Wifi wasn't working and very limited family or children TV channels (we have small children). Other than that the location was convenient for all of the local attractions and we loved the pools! Would recommend.

The unit was all the way at the end of the complex which added to privacy, and very well furnished.

The lake was a huge plus! At first we didn't even think about it but when the rain started it provided great fishing entertainment for my 3 kids!

It’s as described. The area is perfect for a small family. The unit was very clean. It was situated in a perfect place for my stay. The hosts were always very quick To respond with any need I may have had. I would stay here again. The beach is very close and for the price, it’s quite nice!
