We enjoyed our stay here!
Cute place on the water .
This is a cute space . Upon entry the overall appearance of the unit was very clean and minimally decorated which was fine for us.
The bedroom is actually in the front of the apartment and the window looks out on the outdoor hallway. There was not too much noise during our stay, but you can’t ever lift the shades or anyone passing has a direct view of you.
A lot of building are like this on Marco . We have been looking to purchase and so I have become very well aquatinted with the floor plans of most of the buildings on the water ! I have to make the most important comment of this review : The bed is the absolute worst! Back breaking !!They need to get a new mattress . We didn’t get any rest as the mattress is shot.
The kitchen is quaint but the appliances in the kitchen are extremely dated . The view is nice but again the pictures are deceiving as the unit is located directly above on the second floor of the Sunset grill , a pub with decent fare looking out on the water. It’s actually nice to come off the beach and have a bite in there ! They are friendly and it never really got too crowded .
The view is good though. Watching the sunsets is wonderful . The veranda is actually quite large . Plenty of outdoor furniture .
Now for the final thing about the whole property . This may be to some vacationers liking but it’s like fort knocks every step you make. Every door you try to go thru has a key . The elevator, for example , has a key and it’s on the dated side so it takes a few jiggles before you can get the call button to light up. If you don’t put your parking ticket in extremely good view on the dashboard , you get parking violation notices !! There are many many rules and I guess if you bring kids here it’s very safe in that regard!
It should be noted that the public beach access is directly adjacent to the building and that may be why there is so much security but further to that , the beach gets unbelievably crowded and loud with people playing all sorts of music .
We thought the unit was satisfactory for the reasonable cost . You get what you pay for . It was Memorial Day weekend and this was one of 2 units left on the island ! The WiFi worked , there is a hairdryer as previously noted in another review, missing .
We had to buy toilet paper, laundry detergent for outdoor machines and shampoo but there were paper towels and some garbage bags .
Thanks for reading !
Great location, 2nd floor balcony is a little unusual,, not as private
Very good service from the property managers, responsive, units seem a little older, location is awesome, and balcony on floor 2 is a little unusual/no privacy...worked for our long weekend.
Do Not Rent This Unit!!
We were there 5 nights just before Thanksgiving '14. Listing said internet; there was none. Listing said hair dryer; there wasn't one. South Florida has flying insects: both sliding screen doors were broken and leaning up against the sliding glass doors. Property management people said the owner had been contacted to authorize repairs to internet and screens, but had not responded. Minor annoyances: kitchen sink stopper broken, bath tub plug missing, no DVD instructions, minimal condiments. Have twice requested (email and voice mail) when the owner was returning our deposit; no responses and no deposit check returned as of 12/20. We have a VRBO unit in the Rockies which we would never! leave in condition like this one, and have had several good to excellent VRBO experiences when traveling. Not this one. Great location, lots of other places to choose from.
