Great place to relax-close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Tahitian Paradise. It is beautiful. Everything was clean when we arrived and just as pictured . The location is great because it is close to everything. About an 8 minute walk to the beach and shopping and restaurants all around the community.

The kitchen could use a hand mixer and another kitchen towel ( there was only 1). Also, the upstairs bedrooms need a little more light. Bathrooms had plenty of towels and washcloths. We felt safe in the community and enjoyed using the hot tub. We would recommend to others!

Very comfortable living

  • 5 of 5

This property looks just like the pics. Loved all of the luxury details such as soft close cabinets throughout, upgraded tile work, the carpet and finishes on everything. The location is quiet and everyone was friendly. It is a trek to the beach and you have to call the trolley service a day in advance, it's a separate company. We did walk which wasn't too bad, less than a mile. It's only a block from the shopping and the Whole Foods market too. It comes with a grill which is really opened up our food options! It was very clean and had the essentials in terms of kitchen equipment. WiFi worked great, Awesome pool area... we will definitely be back!

Not Family Friendly

  • 2 of 5

This home did not meet our needs as a family of 5 adults and 2 children. The homes decor including wall colors are much darker than they appear online making it feel more like a historic showcase rather than a summer vacation home. The ceiling fans in the secondary bedrooms do not have lighting which made it even more uncomfortable and difficult to see at night especially in the closets. Because of this, we never unpacked our luggage. The children's room (with bunkbeds) is also extremely dark, small and set up poorly. The television is located by the door in the corner and we were unable to move it in the center of the room for viewing without the cable and electrical cords stretched across the floor which was a hazard for our children. The home only has one dvd player located in the main living space on the 1st. floor so we had to give up this room to the children to keep them entertained in the evenings because there were no other amenities for them to stay occupied. The size of the rooms in the common areas are extremely small giving a feel of being on top of each other all the time. There was not enough seating to allow us the ability of gathering all together in one area comfortably. Each time, after bathing in the bath tub of the master bedroom, the water pressure releases and creates a loud noise spurting our air. This occurs several times for the next hour. Taking into consideration the cost of this rental, we were very disappointed We suggest that the owner makes some updates to include appropriate decor, appropriate lighting, and dvd/video games or entertainment for children.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeanette, we do hope you enjoyed the numerous amenities of this terrific residential area close to restaurants, the convenient location near Crystal Beach and many popular attractions. We are sorry the decor in this beautiful home did not meet your expectations. This home is well portrayed on our website and has received only 5-star reviews. Although we do not have any record of you contacting us during your stay providing us an opportunity to correct any of your issues, they will be conveyed to property management for their assessment. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
