My adult Son and I stayed here while attending a Spring Training Yankees baseball game. The place was comfortable and the Host wonderful. Although never met her she was available and stayed in touch throughout the whole process. Location is fantastic. 30 minutes to Clear Water Beach and very close to the Ball Park and airport. I would stay here again. Maybe next year for another Yankees Spring Training. Only negative... Internet was very slow so working on my last day there was impossible due to extreme slowness. That can't be the owners fault. So no Real negatives.
Nice apartment in a good location.
Stayed here for the month of December 2013 with a friend. I was pleased, I enjoyed it by and large, and I would certainly recommend it.
The pros: Very nice complex, on the whole. Clean and safe and modern. The surrounding area was decent as well. While a car would be perfect, without one, you can still get to the essential places quite easily. 15 min walk to: 24hr mini-mart, Whole Foods, Target, Walmart, Wine / Beer store, etc.
The apartment itself was quite nice too. Sparsely furnished, but just fine.
And lastly, the host, Katya, was very nice and accommodating. She lives in the complex, so she was readily available if and when any questions came up. Thanks, Katya.
The cons: just a few, none that serious, especially for those staying short-term. For instance, the wireless internet was kinda spotty. Weak signal that would cut in and out. Also, there wasn't cable, as advertised. Again, for longer-term stays this could prove to be a bummer. For I like watching the news, the weather, and sports, almost exclusively. To remedy the situation, I ended buying an inexpensive antenna from Best-Buy and was able to pick up a dozen or so channels (abc, nbc, fox) which helped a bit.
The only other minor thing, which is no reflection on the host, was that the pool area (while nice and rarely occupied) was set in the center of the building complex, surrounded tightly by apartment units. This meant that the sun would only hit the water and the deck area for short measures at a time; no direct all-encompassing rays. In other words, if you didn't hit the pool by such and such a time, you were left sitting in the shade. Or moving seats every half-hour. Again, no biggie, I just think it was a design flaw on the builder-architect?
Anyhow, that's my thoughts. Best of luck to Katya. And thanks to airbnb. Very nice first experience. Plan on using them again for future travels.
Excellent apartment, very comfortable. Our host was available at all times and we want for nothing. We will use again.
