Also, located in the Tradewinds Island Grand Resort is an art gallery featuring the works of the Guy Harvey, marine wildlife artist and conservationist. His depictions of sealife, especially of sportfish such as marlin, are very popular with sport fishermen and have been reproduced in prints.
We had a great time! The area was really low key and the beaches were never very crowded (stayed tues through sun.) The beach is right across the street; easy entrance through a beach bar!
The internet didn't work at first, but that was taken care of as soon as I e-mailed them. Kitchen was great with all necessary appliances. Beach and bath towels provided. Bed, pillows, and couch were comfy. The only negative things:it smelled like something died in the refrigerator, but I didn't mention that to the landladies, so that's really on me. Also, they appeared to be doing construction on the next room so it could get loud a times, but never at night.
Rental was great - very clean and spacious. Beachtime was helpful, even after a mix up on how to get into the condo the 1st day. would rent condo again and work with beachtime and airbnb again.
The condo itself is nicely updated and comfortable. Our concerns come from the lack of response / follow up we had to problems we encountered during out stay.The first day the toilet started to overflow, we shut the water and plunged to no avail. We called Beach Time and were told they would get the plumber out. After several hours we called back and it was obvious he had not been called. We waited some more and finally a guy showed up who was NOT a plumber and he plunged it. This did not work and he had to call the plumber so we had to wait some more - 5 hours total waiting for the plumber. When he got there it was major and required another hour of work. Two days later the toilet won't flush - we once again call and after almost 2 hours we get somebody in to fix it. During this time the coffee pot also stopped working. We have asked Beach Time for compensation SEVERAL times for the time we wasted having to wait for the plumber to fix the ONLY toilet in the unit. They keep saying that Annie will get back to us and nobody ever gets back to you. In addition, we were told to leave the key in the lock box if we didn't want to wait but we learned that the NEIGHBOR has the code to the lock box so we did not feel comfortable leaving all our things in there under the circumstances. We wasted almost an entire 8 hours waiting to get the toilet fixed and have received no compensation nor any response from Beach Time. You might want to consider staying elsewhere. There is a sign up at the condo complex informing residents of plumbing issues in the building. It was a disappointing stay to say the least.
The place was great! Very clean, spacious and comfortable.
Had a wonderful visit. The pool was beautiful, the location (a few blocks from the ocean) was fantastic, and the private deck was a joy. I gave four stars rather than five because it wasn't a luxury unit. If that isn't important to you then consider it a five. In comparison to other units I've staked at in the Tampa area it is definitely above average.
Wonderful apartment. Very clean and spacious. Very comfortable stay and kid (baby) friendly.
This house perfect for what I needed. It was small but comfortable, quite neighborhood, very close to the beach, and great for my dog. I don't think I would stay again becuase of the host. I did not receive the information needed to get into the house until I asked for it the day of check in. The info was incomplete and incorrect (wrong entry code). I asked for a broom and mop to be available and had to call because a mop was not left. First thing I had to do was sweep, mop and dust. Although you could see the house was clean you could also tell no one (including housekeeping) had been in the house in weeks. We had to have sweeped up about 10 dead roaches and one lizard...I was very grossed out. Then I had to call again becuase they only left one bath towel. Housekeeping came over immediately with a bag of towel - half were stained.
House and area were GREAT!
Host not so great.
We enjoyed a great holiday in this lovely condo. It really is a very short stroll (less than 5 minutes) from a delightful sandy beach where we walked every day. The condo is clean and spacious. It is in very good condition but not so immaculate as to make us anxious about having a five year old and two dogs with us.
It is set in a small block which is unbelievably quiet. The other guests were very friendly when we saw them but we were never aware of other people's noise. There is a clean convenient laundry room.
We would highly recommend this condo. Thank you for a great stay.
Great space and location. I was extremely comfortable during my stay here. Looks just like the pics. Nicely furnished, very clean, extremely fast WiFi, easy to get into when I first arrived, and Victoria at Beach Time Realty Group was a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
