No pets. No smoking in the unit but you can smoke outside. Leave the unit in the same condition you found it in. Tidy up before leaving and put dirty linens in a pile.
My stay at the Top of the Gulf Condominiums was awesome. The beach view from the room was amazing. The kitchen area was stocked with pots and pans for cooking, dishes and utensils, even a crockpot and blender. Krista was very thoughtful in creating a cozy getaway with all the amenities, the room felt like a home away from home. The check in process was easy. I would definitely stay here again.
My friend and I decided to stay at Krista's place from Thursday to Sunday. We had a great experience. It was perfect for our stay. It is conveniently close to everything you need the beach, nightlife, food places. I loved how it comes equipped with everything you need. I would definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you Krista!
Place was as described. Very easy process to get in and out. Can't get any closer to the beach, pool and a hot tub.
Much smaller than it looks like. Pullout couch was broken and seemed really old. Host was only reachable by text and responded sporadically. We had to find another stay in the end.
The apartment was exactly as described. The location is perfect, just need to let the car in the secured parking for the full week, and walk everywhere! Krista was easy to join.
Die Anreise klappte problemlos. Leider waren die versprochenen Armbänder sowie der Parkausweis nicht in der Wohnung, so wie es eigentlich abgemacht war. Um die Sache zu klären versuchte ich Krista anzurufen, sie ging jedoch nicht ans Telefon. Wir mussten dann einen Parkausweis kaufen. Am nächsten Tag bekam ich eine Mail von Krista, in der sie angab, dass sie versuchte hatte mich zurück zu rufen aber sie scheinbar keine internationalen Nummern anrufen kann. Das ist als Gastgeber vielleicht nicht ideal. Abgesehen davon war die Wohnung super. Wir waren zum Spring Break dort und direkt nebenan befanden sich große Clubs und am Strand war auch Party. Die Wohnung war sauber, groß und es gab nichts was fehlte. Kann man nur empfehlen. Vielen Dank Krista!
