Deferred maintenance. Property sat dormant for months since its last rental. Was not clean.
There where many different issues with the property. The main concern was the cleanliness. IT WAS FILTHY. Cobwebs with spiders, dead ants in the master bath, the floor/rugs where covered in dirt (could feel it when you walked barefoot), bathtubs where filthy (hair in the tubs), the bathroom sinks wouldn’t drain properly (slow drainage), baseboards had months of dirt on them, not enough pillows/linen/covers for all occupants and falsely listed as 4 bedroom (bunk bed room was literally a closet with a bunk bed. The top bunk bed’s rail has bolts loose and was a MAJOR hazard for my 5 year old and NO AIR CIRCULATION in the closet.. I mean “Room”) .. the list goes on and on...
I tried to email both housekeeping and maintenance with no response. Finally found a number and called. They where able to provide me enough linens BUT I had to drive to their office to pick them up, VERY INCONVENIENT.
next morning, I still had no response (email/call) but then around 9:30 a cleaning lady came (she was really kind). Her kindness aside, it was evident that she was asked to do a rushed job and get out. She reminded 262837 times that it wasn’t her that initially cleaned the room so not to blame her. She also added that they outsourced the cleaning for this condo because they have other buildings that are more profitable (I forget the name but it was by pier park). Once she left, she only cleaned 40% of the space, I didn’t realize it until she left and was tipped.
The “4th” closet/bedroom had such terrible air circulation that we had to go buy a fan, it was unbearable.
The washing machine made really loud/weird noises.
Fan in master bedroom couldn’t have fan speed adjusted.
Main door would make loud clunking noise when opened/closed.
So much deferred maintenance in this condo.
I honestly feel like this trip was not worth it as it was a waste of time and money. Even if I were offered full refund, I wouldn’t think it would have been sufficient to indemnify. We never felt comfortable in the space because of the cleanliness and issues listed above. I would not recommend panhandle getaways or this specific condo. It should be listed as 3 bedroom not 4 bedroom, use of that closet as a bedroom should be allowed (False advertising)
Absolutely LOVED this condo and booked bc the age requirement said 21. This is FALSE. You have to be 25 to rent this condo and it made us run into some trouble, but the condo owners (panhandle getaways) were super nice and handled the situation very well. Would definitely stay here again!
Hi Brianna, thank you so much for your valued feedback!
Family Beach rental
Everything was great! quick beach access and beach chair rentals. Pools were very nice. and there was a Starbucks and bar in the building. only issue is the elevators during the busy beach season. it was much faster to take the stairs.
Hi Sharon, thank you so much for your valued feedback!
The Condo was more then enough room for our family. The first part of the week the elevators were terrible(side note we were there in June..BUsy Busy time). They did put an attendant to help speed up the elevator speed after a couple days and it helped a ton. If you have this luxury please make sure to tip the nice person b/c if definitely helped!
Hi :) We so appreciate you taking the time to leave such a fabulous 4 Star Review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return :)
Great Location, Clean Condo
This was wonderful. We did think it should have had a hair dryer. We had to buy a baking sheet and pot holders. What kind of kitchen doesn’t have potholders? But, the unit had everything else we needed. We would have liked more trash bags. We stayed quite a while.
The pros were that the unit was easy to get into and out of. It has a tremendous view. We loved the size of the balcony. And the living area could accommodate all of us. We would all stay here again!!
Thank you for the AWESOME 5 Star Review! We are so happy you had a great time during your stay with us at the beach & look forward to your return.
