Got a very good rate for a last minute trip to the beach between Christmas and NYE! Condo was one of the penthouse suites and very roomy. Could stand a little TLC through out. In general it's a beautiful penthouse and TONS of space.

We loved the spaciousness PH2 provided. The view of the ocean was great! The balcony is big. It is dated and could definitely use some sprucing up. The shower had black build up on the door, the ceiling fans was broken and dusty in the master bdrm. The baseboards could be repainted. They are stained. While it’s not a deal breaker, that does bring down the overall feeling of cleanliness. The kitchen bar is nice and there is a wet bar. I’d consider staying again, but for the price- would look for something that’s kept up a little better.
Manager response:

Large living area and kitchen, king room / bathroom great. Bed could have been more comfy but not bad. 20th floor penthouse had great views. Quick elevators. Plenty of room for 8 ppl, would 100% recommend.

Complex was clean and seemed well maintained. Elevators were great, we rarely waited long for one even though we were in the penthouse. Pool was nice. Shopping carts for check in and out was genius.
Unfortunately once we got to our unit, it was very disappointing. Unit was overall clean, but not what I would consider luxury as described. Beds were listed as queen, they were definitely not and sheets did not fit beds and came off nightly. Light switches in rooms controlled fan ceiling fan and light with one switch. To turn either the light or fan off, you had to pull the chain on the light and I am short so this meant climbing in the bed to turn them on and off. One room fan was stuck on high all week because there was not a chain to turn it off or down. Towels were scratchy. Mildew on ceiling above common shower. No night lamp on both sides of the bed, not a big deal but still inconvenient. Extra bed linens shoved in plastic shopping bag in corner of closet that were not folded so I had concerns about cleanliness. Kitchen not particularly well appointed. Drawer front broken on one drawer. Dish drain did not fit into sink and no mat to put under it so it could be used on the counter. Appliances nice except for refrigerator did not have ice and water dispenser. Patio door was very heavy and track dirty. No handle on heavy patio slide door meant it was difficult to close. Patio furniture was unusable due to rust and fabric of lounge chairs frayed and old. Few other issues but that is enough.
Would not stay at this unit again.

Very disappointed with this place being a Penthouse! All furniture was either ripped or old. Deck furniture was rusted and ready to break. This place needs an overhaul. Broken drape in living room. Not a place we would rent again

It was wonderful! Our kids were super excited when they realizes PH meant Pent House. Our son called after checking in to tell us its `awesome nice` It was beautifully decorated, everyone had their own room and bathroom for privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at San Carlos PH2 and hope to book again next year. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

First, the view: Spectacular! It is the first thing you see when you walk in. Second, private bathrooms for all bedrooms, except for kids bath, which is right across the hall. One bedroom is advertised as a queen, but actually a double. Overall, very clean, fantastic view and wished I would have booked for more days.

The layout and square footage of this property were excellent. The kitchen was stocked well. The furniture left a little to be desired, but was okay for what we needed. The bunk bed furniture should be repaired or replaced. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
