Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was in a great location and the view was very nice for the price. The only thing we didn't like was the shower curtain needed replaced(moldy, but easy fix) and the cleaning ppl could really dust the webs out of the windows(not the owners fault) The big major fix I def think needs done is the couch, its starting to look very worn, even kinda dirty looking, and my mom said it was not comfortable to sleep on at all. Other then that we enjoyed our stay. Please remind guest about needing pool wrist bands though, we got in trouble for that because we didn't know. I thought the green wall color was fine and we never saw any bugs the entire time we were there.

Bad

  • 2 of 5

The room had been painted a very dark green color and did not look like the pictures at all. It needs to be updated bad. There were roaches in the room and I emailed the owner while we were there and got no response and still haven't heard anything from him. It was not very clean at all. The owner also made it sound like there was wifi in the room and there was not you have to sit by the pool to get wifi. I was there for a wedding and several of my friends stayed at the same place and had very nice updated big free rooms. I would never stay here again.

Owner's Response: Well gee I am always disappointed when people say bad things about the condo. The condo was repainted last winter and new flooring was installed in the bedroom. It has ceramic tile in the living room and hall. I also purchased a new recliner and mattress and box springs this past winter. So not sure why she thinks it needs updating badly because most of the furniture is new, the flooring is new and it has just been painted. It had a light green paint and guests bump into the walls a lot or something and it would show every little mark. So we are trying a middle color of green and my wife things it looks very nice. I would not call it dark green at all. I went back and looked thru all my emails and I simply did not receive an email from her during her stay. Not sure what happened to it but I did not receive it. I have several guest that stay there year after year. So it must not be to bad to have repeat guests. My condo only rents for $80 a night in the spring and fall and $100 in the summer which is cheap for being directly on the beach. I get very few negative reviews but you just can not make everybody happy. Unfortunately the folks that really like it usually do not take the time to post a positive review. As far as the WiFi the Sunbird use to have complex wide coverage. I know I have used it in the condo before. I just find out recently that they are having some issues with the coverage so not sure what is going on with that but I will find out.

Two thumbs up

  • 5 of 5

This was the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken. The photos on the internet were very accurate. The condo was very clean and the grounds well maintained. It is centrally located and within walking distance to most attractions and those not were within easy traveling. We enjoyed Pineapple Willy's, Hammerhead Fred's, Ripley's, shopping at Pier Park and eating frozen yogurt at Menchie's. There was so much to do that this is definitely a "we must return here". The only minor complaints were that the Wifi connection was very sketchy and the dryers did not dry the clothes. Other than that, we definitely will be returning and I will recommend this to family and friends. Thank you Mr. Alan.

Even Isaac couldn't ruin our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was cozy, clean, and just what we needed. Right on the beach, close to everything, and very reasonably priced. The on site management was also very courteous and helpful.

Initially, we were spooked by Hurricane Isaac being forecasted to hit PCB directly, but luckily (for us anyway) it ended up heading further west than expected. Alan reassured us that if we did have to evacuate that everything would be taken care of. The TV and DVD player definitely came in handy when the weather did turn bad.

We did have one minor problem during our stay. Building maintenance decided to clean the roof while the winds were still gusting at around 20-30 mph. Some of the cleaning solution splashed on my wife's t-shirt and ruined it. The on site office staff was very helpful in getting word to maintenance staff to quit cleaning until the winds died down and in reimbursing us for the t-shirt.

All in all, we had a great time and we'd definitely book this condo again in the future.
