First the positives... The general location (near Duval Street) is great. Also, the condo itself is mostly very nice and well maintained. The furniture is all in good shape, the layout is nice, and the bathrooms are both recently redone and are very nice.
However, the negatives greatly outweigh the positives. For starters... mentioned nowhere in the listing is the fact that the condo is directly above a busy restaurant with mostly outdoor seating. The noise coming from right below every window is non-stop. The diners are there until 11 pm, then the cleanup crew until 12 am, then the employees hangout outside to smoke, drink, and talk until 2 - 4 am! (One night I had to go out onto the balcony at 2:30 am and another at 4 am to ask the guys down below to “please take it inside”.) Then, the deliveries start at 5:30 or 6 am and again had to go out a couple morning at 7 am to ask them to quiet down.
(I DID complain about the noise to the rental company in the middle of the week and they gave me a “token” partial refund that amounted to about 7.5% of my rental cost - not nearly enough to compensate for the week of no sleep.)
Also, one of the bedrooms had some surprising maintenance needs. There were missing slats on the all-glass door leading to the stairs, providing a nice peep show for anyone that walks up the stairs. There was also a large hole in the “privacy film” on the glass door leading to the hallway, providing another peep show opportunity for the people in the condo. Finally, the lamp in the room (which was the only source of artificial light in there) was missing one prong of the plug, so was useless.
Bottom line, I could have overlooked the items in the bedroom (which I initially did when we first checked in) because there were ways around them. The restaurant noise, however, was unbearable for us. My wife and I were there with our two kids and their significant others and I kept apologizing to them all week for the sleepless nights. If the listing had mentioned the restaurant, we NEVER would have booked it - especially considering the premium we paid to be near Duval street for Christmas week.
