We had an awesome vacation and loved the location!
Loved the location, with gulf views and proximity to restaurants and bike paths.
The property was dated but the condo was well laid out and room sizes were good. It was sufficiently clean on arrival, but not sparkling or anything. It had the feel of a frequently used rental; chipped floors, crooked drawers on the dressers, outlets that could barely hold a plug, older kitchen cupboards and kind of a mish mash of kitchen utensils. (Florida beach towns seem to be full of these, in our travel experience.)
We had enough to make basic meals and the coffee maker worked fine. Appliances were noisy (dishwasher, washer and dryer) but they worked. Well, we had to rinse quite a few glasses before using them, so maybe the dishwasher doesn't work so well.
King bed was comfortable and firm, while the second bedroom would be best suited for kids who don't mind squishy mattresses.
Condo complex was quiet, except when people moved into the unit upstairs and spent a lot of time opening and closing a very heavy, noisy sliding door right above us. Also had to listen to them cough loudly while they smoked (not cigarettes, we could tell by the smell.). We we're glad we only heard two days' worth of that.
Pool area was well shaded and comfortable.
We would stay here again for the location and condo size. It's a great family spot. Not fancy but we felt the photos were largely accurate.
Hi Amy, Thank you for the review we appreciate the feedback. Since your stay the owners did replace the two couches, the lanai furniture, added a queen bed in the guest room (now one twin one queen) and placed a love-seat in the master. We hope to see you again !
Stayed Jan 12-19, 2019. We have been to Sanibel before but this was our 1st rental here. Arrived later in the day but as we settled in easily saw the place was dirty; patio chairs covered in mildew, coffee maker broke, dishwasher full of gunk, dishes in cupboard dirty, patio storage closet had beach stuff just tossed in and smelly, glad we took our own chairs, entrance door and louvered doors on closets filthy ; just to name a few specifics.
Staff did not arrive til Monday pm to do what cleaning could be done since we were already occupying the unit.
TV in guest room is on an extension cord. Most outlets in unit are loose. Maintence man was to bring a power strip. He never did.
Furniture in living room swallows up people the longer we sat. Very old. Huge, floppy sofa in master that took up lots of space.
Black snakes crawl close to the unit and 2 people saw them warming up on the pool deck.
We spent a lot of money and were given this poorly kept unit. No price adjustment was offered BUT if you are interested it is for sale!!! We were very disappointed to spend our week in a misrepresented dump. We asked other visitors if this was the norm. Definitely we got the exception. DO NOT RENT THIS MESS!
The location is directly on the beach or I would not give any star rating. The grounds are very well maintained. Too bad Kingfisher Mgt have such poor standards and are not checking what they are renting. It needs deep clean and new sturdy furniture.
We are sorry to hear this unit did not meet your needs or expectations. We try very hard to convey what to expect with each individually owned unit we manage Wile we think one star is a bit harsh, we do feel this unit can use some updating which the owner has now done (04/8/19). There are two new couches, new lanai furniture, a new queen in the guest room, a new love-seat in the master bedroom. The condo was cleaned prior to your arrival but obviously not to our usual exceptional standards and for this, we apologize. I am glad we were able to send them back out the to bring the level of cleanliness back up. We are also sorry for the two maintenance items mentioned were not addressed although our maintenance team was there on Sunday per your request. This is very unusual for us. We pride ourselves on addressing any issues in our control within 24 hours. Unfortunately, we were unable to do anything about the wildlife outside and by the pool. While the other reviews reflect a different experience with this unit, we are sincerely sorry your stay didn't.
It was very clean. Loved the view and access to the beach.
The only negative thing was the bedroom window was broke in an opened position and we were not comfortable with that, especially since we were on the ground floor. Plus it made the room hot! Over all we had a wonderful time!!!
Thank you very much for the review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay and we apologize for the broken window. We will make sure maintenance will adjust the problem. We hope to have you back!!
relaxing vacation with husband and 2 year old toddler
We had a great time at unit 2A. We liked that the condo had doors we could close off (baby proofing) to keep our toddler out of kitchen and bedrooms when we weren't using those rooms. The location of the unit is the best for the beach and access to the pool. We liked the use of the washing machine so we can wash our beach/pool towels. It was nice that the unit was set up with towels and beach chairs and floats for us to use. We did bring a beach caddy with us to make it easy to transport from condo to beach. Just a side note for maintenance. The oven light above stove was not working and the screen door to patio did not latch close.
Thank you very much for the review! We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and we hope to have you back!!
Overall had a very nice stay.
Good view to the Gulf, with the exception of the two days that the plastic cover blocked our view while they were painting the units. Loved the close walk to, not only the beach but the pool, too. Could not keep our 5 year old grandson out of the water. Shower was super and grandson loved the deep bath. Great kite flying. Units are older and need some maintenance. Toilet in master ran every 10 minutes, just needed some new innards. A driving rain from the Gulf side made the second floor porch leak through the wall and drip into our unit along the living room sliding door upper sill. Some other person had mentioned that the unit smelled a little musty and I'm sure this leak is the culprit. The paint is pealing. A little maintenance would make this unit great. Washer needs replacing, only fills half way and is pretty rusty. In the master bed, you sleep in a deep valley with a mountain in between you. The queen was the same. The memory foam is not good. Personally, we love a firm bed. Wanted you to know about the improvements that could be made. BUT, did want to stress that we had a good time. The condo is roomy, decorated nicely, plenty of linens, plus lots of extras for the beach and pool. Beach was great and collected some really nice shells.
Thank you for the candid review. This gives us an opprotunity to work with the owner and make the experience better for the next guests. Thank you again- Kingfisher Vacations
The king mattress has been replaced, Thank You Again.
