The view was wonderful. Everything worked. Nice balcony.
There could be some minor repairs/toilet paper holder/knobs on drawers/etc., but a nice place at a good price and would stay again.
Keila B. Apr 2022
Loved everything about this stay, except for the windows in the sleeping areas. The light from the hall was so bright during the night. Otherwise, great views, great space, and very clean!

Awesome view
Hussein A. Oct 2021
This apartment was nicely structured but there was cracks in the ceilings, stained and unsanitary carpets and furniture that is has chipped paint and doesn’t make it too welcoming. I had to clean and sanitize most of the areas in the living room and kitchen along with some of the bathrooms. My cousins also booked through vacasa but when I visited their apartments, they were far nicer then mine even though we booked at the same rate and time.
Manager response:
Hi, Hussein! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We're sorry you were disappointed at all. A deep cleaning is scheduled for this rental, and we are discussing possible furniture updates with the homeowner. A contractor is scheduled to provide us with a quote for ceiling repairs. Hopefully we'll be able to host you again so you can see the improvements.

Condo needs deep cleaned, repainted, and some minor repairs. Hallway light outside front door is extremely bright and shines directly into main bedroom. Location was best part about it.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Karen. We do have fall deep cleans and maintenance inspections coming up that will address most of your concerns. We hope you'll return someday!

Lovely view of ocean and beach
Stephanie M. Jun 2021
This home was a beautiful place. We enjoys the room a lot. The elevator service was terrible. It diminished our trip. There is plenty of space to add more elevator banks. I would do that ASAP. Every person we met waiting said they would never be back again. The longest we waited was 25 minutes with our luggage cart. We needed to go up to 18th but the elevator bypassed our floor and went up to 30 then proceeded to stop on every floor on the way down whether the button was pushed or anyone was waiting outside. Finally a security attendant got on with us used her key and got us to our floor.
Manager response:
Hi Stephanie, thank you for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that the elevators caused any inconvenience. While they are managed by the HOA and out of our control, we understand that frustration. We will ensure they are aware of the frustration caused to guests. We hope to host you again very soon.

The furniture on the balcony should be trashed. The one chair 1/2 way decent to sit on is falling apart. The little table is ok. The 2nd chair is broken and cheap plastic. The air conditioning has a problem and seem to be a ongoing thing. Our first 2 days we didn't have comfort. The air was 85 degrees. After several calls a maintenance man finally came to check it out. I would not go back to this unit until they work on it.
Manager response:
We are pleased 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 who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

The condo was clean, the staff was all helpful and kind. The pools were large and very clean. Of course the view was amazing also. We will definitely stay here again. The wristbands provided an extra sense of security without any inconvenience! It was great!

Great Condo; Theset of chairs, on the beach, coming with the room was a great extra.

Condo carpet very dirty. Door track very dirty Skillets look like my grandmothers (soo old)
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world-class service.

Everything was great except for the amount of light coming in the bedrooms @ night.

The unit was clean and comfortable. The location was central to most of the places we wanted to go.
