“The Good, The Bad & The Ugly”
Reviewed 16 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

I'd love to give this glowing reviews but I am not going to lie to you, there are issues here. Firstly, the good: the location is fantastic, a few blocks to the beautiful Windansea Beach, a few blocks the other direction and you are on the main street with pubs and restaurants. Easy-peasy to get around from that address, loved the locale. The unit itself, the rooftop deck, awesome, has everything up there you would need, the umbrella material has poked through one of the spokes so it needs replacing but other than that, it's so nice to have morning coffee up there and look at the bit of ocean view you get and the palm tree's. The bad, the stairs and railings are woefully in need of sanding and painting as is the whole exterior for that matter, it's all pretty worn, the "security" gate barely connects with the lock, a six year old could kick it open. The ground floor, we really liked using that area for afternoon/evening cocktails when it got too hot up on the rooftop, however, it would be nice to have a couple chairs and a little side table as we had to lug a couple from the rooftop. The hot tub is on this level and boy does that area need some love. The hot tub itself works fine but the bar and cover system is located on the front of the tub so you have to climb in on the side, not a biggie just unsightly but the biggest issue is with what is on the wall directly behind the hot tub. There are all the electric panels there and right below it is the hot tub! Not only that but it's painted in some parts and not in others. Simply pulling out the hot tub a little bit would allow for a screen behind the hot tub so you wouldn't know the breaker boxes were there. It's an unsettling sight. There are what I could imagine would be cute little twinkle lights hanging over the hot tub but they are on a broken solar system so they don't work. The pool table room, was a nice bonus and had an updated bathroom. The pool table could use a recovering as it is old, with spill marks on it and the balls look like they are circa 1900's, just replacing them couldn't cost much to replace. It needs more decor down there to make it look more fun but, that's nitpicking, it was mostly fine and fun to use. The ugly: the main floor is where all the trouble is. The pictures are what the unit looks like staged. If that was my rental I would basically gut it and start fresh. The kitchen is extremely small, only one person at a time. The coffee maker is hotel tiny and the microwave will go on when you don't even have the door closed! How much could it cost to replace them a hundred bucks or so? It functioned but not well. The main "living area" is way too big and completely unnecessary waste of space, the bedroom is very small and the king bed, (GREAT to have the king bed, comfy too) is pushed up against one wall so you have to "climb" in to it. The bathroom is atrocious. It's tiny, with sloppy caulking covering the rusting tub, it takes forever for the tub to drain. Very little room to put your cosmetics bags etc. without using the back of the toilet, I was scared it was going to fall in the whole time. The paint is chipped on the walls and when I spilled something on the kitchen floor and wiped it up, I could see the rest of the floor was dirty. There is even a childs beach toy SCREWED into the wall, don't know if this is supposed to be cute or ironic but it just looks tacky as hell. The exterior needs sanding and painting, all the other houses in the alleyway are painted and obviously cared for. This place could be so much better with some investment money put into it, the idea is there for a fabulous rental unit, but it needs desperate updating. I guess I am just used to higher standards I'm sorry, I wish I could give it a better review but you have work to do.
