From the Owner

Rome got built! We finally finished the gigantic project of knocking the condo down to concrete slab and studs, and completely rebuilding and upgrading the unit to our 5 star resort standards. The condo building is flanked by the Mexican Gulf and the Intercoastal waterway. You will enjoy a sweeping view of the beach and the Gulf, above all adjacent buildings; spectacular sunrise and sunset on the 8th floor spacious wrap-around balcony.
Or you can enjoy the view right from the comfort of your bed or sofa as both the Master and Family Room face the balcony through 8 foot-wide floor to ceiling glass sliders. The other rooms also offer amazing views of the beach and the water. The white sandy beach is your private backyard, graced by herons and pelicans – perfect for jogging, walking or building a sandcastle. At night, you can count the stars and sleep to the soothing sound of gentle waves.
Besides the stunning natural beauty, the inside will be exquisite and full-featured. We are perfectionists who love to travel and stay at great resorts – our singular goal is to make the unit a vacation home where we would enjoy staying. You will be delighted!

We enjoyed ourselves and the condo with a few maintenance and supply issues. The plan of the condo is great and we loved the wrap around balcony. That was our favorite part of the condo. We arrived Saturday and didn't learn until Sunday that we couldn't get the TVs to work and that the coffee pot was not clean or usable. Called the after-hours number and Vickie was very attentive. Had the Spectrum person out there in the afternoon and arranged for Eva to come the next morning (head of housekeeping). I showed her several things and she brought us a new coffee pot, took away the stained bedspread, washed down the dirty shower stall door and ordered the glass door to be caulked (it was loose) that afternoon.She was excellent. Other issues: no pot holders in kitchen, the place mats for table looked dirty, did not use them; filthy dirty floor mat going out to the balcony; no instructions (I think Eva found them) out for use of tv and sound board; could not find iron at first (not with the supplies); most difficult to turn on and off lamp by the door to balcony. All of these are easily addressed but need attention.

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay in unit 801. This unit has been updated to a coastal modern look with all the amenities we needed. Beautiful kitchen, handy washer / dryer in the unit; loved the wrap around deck, beautiful views. Bathrooms were very nice, loved the tile floors. Would recommend this unit to others. <br/>We did have one issue when we checked in to the unit, water was leaking from the over-the-sink lights and the floor and counters were soaked. We cleaned up the mess after calling this into the emergency line. Property manager showed up and went to check on the unit above. Never heard anything else - hopefully all is well.

Would stay again, Thanks to the owner for excellent remodel

Sliding glass door needed new rollers "very" difficult to open. Working on it when we left.<br/>Would suggest area rugs around the bed.

It was great, everything except for clothes and food was there. Nothing to bring. except I had to get some sugar and the coffee maker was not Keric. A great Gulf experience, lots of beach and sun. Being May, the weather was beautiful. Don't tell the tourists they will ruin it. Parking is limited, so if you have more than one car, ... Limited guess parking. On the first day someone had parked in our assigned spot. But the caretaker promptly called a wrecker and problem disappeared. Didn't happen again.

The condo had nice updates and neutral decor which was very relaxing. The beachfront view from the living room and master bedroom was spectacular. So much to do in the area and everyone had a blast.

This time we were disappointed by the destruction by former tenants in the unit who have destroyed the outside furniture. As well as the comforters on the beds have not been cleaned as same marks on them since previous years. Yes unit was surfaced clean but I am sure owners would not be pleased with how some people do not care about others property and maybe Florida Rentals should take note after each rental to review these things.

While Lifestyles reacted to our requests for light bulbs (6), only 2 wine glasses, etc, I believe that they should have been pro-active in making sure that those items should have been replaced before we moved in. A short inspection of the unit by Lifestyle staff prior to people moving in would have found other items that needed attention as well.
