|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Vacation beachfront in this lovely Sans Souci condo, offering comfortable accommodations for up to six people. It is a great choice for a retreat with family or close friends. The homey decor and incredible amenities will help you feel right at home during your stay. When you are not enjoying a tasty meal at one of the nearby restaurants in Pensacola Beach, create a delicious meal in your fully-equipped kitchen. Spend some time relaxing on your private balcony before heading downstairs and spending your days in the sand. The resort offers some exciting amenities as well, including a community pool, hot tub and laundry area.
This condo has the potential to be really nice, but needs some help getting there. The kitchen is solid, well-stocked, no issues. Living room was the same. Solid.
The lighting throughout the entire unit is low. Every room is dim. During the day, it's not so bad in the kitchen/living area because the sun is coming in from the balcony. But, the bedrooms are lit by a couple of lamps with, what seemed like, low-wattage bulbs. The windows in each room are very narrow, no great views to wake up to from either room, so there was no daytime light helping the situation.
The unit does not have a washer/dryer. You would have to use the common laundry area on the ground floor. I didn't even think to ask about that, so if you're like me and travel as light as possible - 1 beach towel per person - you may prefer a unit with a washer/dryer. I'm not spending time in the "laundromat" on vacation...nor will I leave my stuff washing or drying unattended. I'll know to confirm that next time I'm looking for a place to stay...didn't realize how valuable that commodity was until we were hanging towels and bathing suits all over the unit, hoping they were dry before morning. They smelled awful by the time we got home...
The part that is truly the reason I'm writing a review is the master bathroom. First, the floor was dirty when I got there. So bad that I went to Walmart and bought a brand new broom because I imagine the reason the floor was dirty was due to the well-used broom I found in the hall closet. I left the new broom behind...hopefully the cleaning crew uses it and tosses the old one. But no amount of cleaning on my end could have fixed the shower issue. Salt air will ruin metal fixtures in a bathroom. I'm never surprised by a little rust. The metal trim on the shower door needs to be replaced. Not cleaned. Not resealed. Replaced. When the shower runs, the water causes something I don't wish to identify to flow out from under the sliding door trim and pool around the top of the tub, then slowly run into the floor of the tub. It looked like little silver metal shavings, but who knows. It was gross. I didn't touch it, just tried to pretend I didn't see it and avoid it. My daughter didn't even want to use the shower and, at 5, her standards are low. We won't talk about how soft and squishy the shower floor is.
The master shower needs work. The weird stuff flowing in when the shower runs would keep me from renting this unit again. The door needs to be replaced.
