  • Liked: Amenities
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

Good location , nice looking on the outside, but inside the carpet and the sofas was a mess the upstairs looked better no carpet , the tub was not draining , there was no washer and dryer as promise it will be, the blankets are white which is nice but had stains and hair on it, I called in to let them know they said they going to send the housekeeping and the maintenance and they will get in touch with us before they come ; well no calls from them , but the housekeeping came WHEN WE WERE NOT THERE ( they not suppose to go in unless you give them permission if your not on premises) and left some blankets , sheets and towels. AND THIS IS NOT ALL THE COMPLAINS THEY SHOULD HAVE A LIST . WE LEFT THE NEXT MORNING.

Family Spring Break

We loved the location. It was a short walk to the beach. It was like we were in the middle of food and near many attractions. The carpet downstairs was a little soiled but it looks like they may be in the process of taking it up. The upstairs rooms and bathroom were nice with the hardwood flooring. The kitchen had many of the necessary items to prepare snacks and meals. The TVs had many channels for rainy day and rest time.


  • Disliked: Room comfort

Tub clogged with hair, yuck. Broken blinds, no rugs upstairs. Not enough provided bath towels. Broken blender and old doors that made lots of noise when opening and closing. However the home was clean.
