Good for a large family, there were plugs that didn't work and the microwave was busted but other then that the place was nice. However the caretakers for the property only left us 3 rolls of toilet tissue for 6 people and 2 trash bags. This was suppose to last us 7 days..... when reaching out to them I never heard back and had to buy my own supplies to make sure the family got through with no issues. Overall the place was nice but the management team wouldn't be managing my property anymore if it were mine
Manager response:
Gabriel, thank you for staying with us. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. We provide our guests with a starter kit of supplies. This includes cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper products. Once these supplies run out it is the responsibility of our guests to provide any additional supplies for the remainder of their stay. Supplies are restocked before each guest. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused during your time with us. We hope to host you again soon.

This condo was clean plenty of room it has everything you need in the kitchen it had a washer and dryer which helped a lot with the beach towels. The mattress were a little uncomfortable need to be updated But over all we enjoyed it
Manager response:

You’re basically paying for the amenities and location. The apartment itself is not worth your money.

Dinning table is for 6 people but only has 4 chairs. we rented the place for a family of 6 so family dinner/breakfast weren’t possible and it was kind of frustrating to even try to play table games with the family.

Living room- the couch is okay.

Tv/internet- internet is slow. We struggled watching Netflix or the Olympics. Keep this in mind if your plan to work from home. You may want to consider taking your own router.

Bedrooms- So so so outdated with just the basic things you need. It looks like they furnished it just enough to be able to list the property for rent. Take your own pillows and blankets.

Kitchen- fridge and stove work fine. Everything else is super outdated. Coffee pot is old and the blender doesn’t work. Didn’t use the dishwasher.

We didn’t get trash bags. Had to go buy toiletries including toilet paper bc there was only one in each restroom even though our stay was for 5 days.

Balcony: no patio furniture. The place has three balconies But no outdoor furniture to be able to be outside.

Amenities: gym is no longer available. It’s only for people who are staying at the tower.

Bbq pits: only available to rent. The condo doesn’t have its own so maybe take a small one if you can.

Overall, if there’s another apartment in the area I would consider that first before staying here. The condos are peaceful during the week and having direct access to the beach is probably the best part about this place.
Manager response:

We only supply a starter set of incidentals, toilet paper , soap, etc. and advise our guests to bring or purchase additional if needed.

Pros: Condo was cute and convenient to the beach. Plenty of beds and bathrooms made sure everyone in our group was comfortable. The inside was clean and had great air conditioning.
Cons: the dryer was small and inefficient. The air conditioning was so efficient that it was downright freezing at times. The wooden stairway outside was filthy and looked like spring-breakers partied all over it. Garbage bags were left outside in the parking lot.
The cost of renting this condo was a little high compared with the quality of the bedding, the furniture and even the cheap toilet paper.
Otherwise, the complex felt secure with the gate and bracelet system. The security guards were friendly and polite. The two pools on the property were clean and attractive.
All in all, this condo met our needs and more. We would consider returning.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Kori. We are sorry to hear of the details that were amiss and apologize for any inconvenience. We will work diligently to address your concerns appropriately for future guests. We hope we have the opportunity to impress you in the future.
Oveimar L. Jun 2021
Property is overall clean but needs renovation. We ended up switching our stay thanks to the Vacasa management for assisting. But just wasn’t what we expected especially for the cost. Outdated overall and repairs would go a long way for this condo. We do love the location and have stayed at Solare before with positive experiences. Just didn’t work for us.
Manager response:
Hi Oveimar, thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with us. We are sorry to hear that the home was not as expected upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties. Your concerns have been shared with the local management who will work with the homeowner to make necessary updates and repairs. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

The first impression was not a good one for me. The stairs had something spilled on them and was dirty. The bar stools were stained and the carpet going upstairs was ragged.
Manager response:

We strive to maintain a standard of excellence in home cleanliness and upkeep for the comfort of our guests in addition to being readily available to assist in addressing any questions or concerns that might arise.

What we liked: Me and my 6 friends booked this condo this week & we loved it, the rooms were spacious, the restrooms were nice and stocked with towels etc. They had a nice pool area with a jacuzzi (public),

What we didin’t like: Security was tight wouldn’t allow more than 2 cars per party a third vehicle would cost around $50 extra, they need to keep up with maintenance had a terrible smell as soon as we walked in.
Would book here again:)
