Vacation Rental Summary
The place is great - as others have said, it does sit right over the main road where a lot of rental golf carts (all gas, all noisy) run by, and so it is noisy. The floor below this condo houses several commercial shops, where business begins at 7 am (when we were there). So, you wake up to the sound of business (bike rental, etc.) if the windows are open. However, this property is probably the closest rental on the water - and the views provided on the website are accurate. If I had a beef, it would be that when you pay this kind of money, you would expect some amenities - the wine glasses in the kitchen were plastic, really? We are paying almost $2000 for a few days, and you can't provide a reasonable set of nice glass wine glasses? Of course this doesn't matter if you don't drink good wine, but many of you readers do. Frankly, I travel the world and stay at nice places and I would expect at this price point to have (1) the glasses mentioned, (2) some fresh flowers, (3) a bottle of wine in the fridge? (4) a map of the island, (5) a list of the restaurants and their phone numbers, (6) the internet, which was advertised, worked poorly and routinely was non-functional - why did we have to call CIVR to get the router code? It should have been provided in the package or in the facility. (7) all the nornal other things that high end rentals should provide. The CIVR seems to have their stuff together, but they need to be more client focused. Very nice people, but come on. We spent over $500 / night, you can't provide a $20 bottle of wine and some wine glasses from Costco? These are relatively minor comments, but come on. Treat your customers like they matter, as opposed to being just another cow getting off of the cattle boat from Long Beach. It was a nice place - VERY loud, but an awesome place to watch the people walking to/from the ferry. We had a great time / my critique is meant to be critical, but not damning.
Unit C was very nice and the view is spectacular. The only issue we had was the noise from the owners unit upstairs. It sounded like they were moving furniture around constantly.
Overall, nice place...could use some attention to detail though. For example, has an infared bbq unit, but no bbq tools/utensils. Had big black ant invasion in bedroom closets. Two of the three plastic patio chairs broken beyond use.
Loved every minute of our vacation and the condo was part of the great experience.
The condo was clean, well decorated and cozy for our family of 4. We fit well. Know that the condo is located directly on the main street and right in front of the public volleyball and basketball courts and kids play late (the picture above is accurate but note that right below are the volleyball and basketball courts). It was hot during our visit but there is no aC. We tried to sleep with the window open but we heard the loud golf carts passing by all night so we dealt with the heat the other nights and closed the window. Once the windows are closed it is very quiet inside. Only other minus was the lack of kitchen organization. We had to go through every drawer and cabinet to find what we needed to cook. Bring your own Tupperware if you have leftovers; there was no matching bowls to lids. However, the location was great for walks to the beach, shops and restaurants. Can't beat the view at night...you see the harbor and lit up casino (now a movie theater)and it's beautiful!
