Winter Retreat to Indian Shores, Florida
A guest from Plymouth, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2016 Overall the complex was secure and well maintained. Unit 1314 was comfortably and tastefully furnished and decorated. The master bath remodel was especially nice and equipped with grab bars in the new shower. Our favorite feature was the balcony overlooking the main courtyard, with a view of the shoreline of the gulf, and gorgeous sunsets.
A guest from Eureka, MO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2016 The unit is adequate-- it was very clean and the furniture and bathrooms have been updated. The carpet throughout the condo needs to be replaced or stretched. The kitchen has not been updated-- but this does not affect your vacation. The kitchen seems to have been stocked from a thrift store but is adequate. The biggest drawback for this unit for me was the management company. The master bedroom has a king size bed but there were no sheets that fit it properly. The sheets were too small and came off the mattress as we slept and sometimes I had to fix them during the night and always had to remake the bed each morning. When I asked Florida Lifestyles for new sheets, the housekeeper who happened to be in the office said we could try a new set but that they "did not rent deep pocket sheets, so they wont fit any better." She was right === they didn't. Florida Lifestyles is getting paid to take care of these units and they should be doing whatever is necessary to make a client happy and ensure that they have a good stay. If this were my unit, I would change management companies to someone who realizes that a good night sleep is important to a happy vacation. .
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc. Thank you for your review. We are confined to linens that the supplier produces as we are not in the linen business. Maybe another management company can help you with the sheets that apparently affected your vacation so drastically. Most use the same linen supplier but will maybe have a thinner mattress to satisfy you. Thanks again for your review and we wish you much happiness with your next rental by someone else.
A guest from Saint Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 Great place very clean for a nice relaxed vacation.There is not many attractions arround but its nice and clean and peaceful would definitely come back here
Jerry & Elaine J. from North Royalton, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 28 days in April, 2015 Could be a very nice unit, owner seems to be trying to update a little but not doing a great job at painting. Master bath needs a lot of work.
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc. Thank you for your the Condo is being updated and it has been a challenge since it is booked so heavily but the Owner will persevere until it is completed to his liking. Thanks again.
Tracey S. from Byron Center, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 This place was great! The rental dept was easy to deal with, the condo is in a good location, the condo was clean and provided plenty of amenities, and the view of the pool & beach is spectacular! I would stay again.Don't expect the taj mahal, it's a rental unit people. But it had everything I needed and it all worked properly. The kitchen and bathrooms could use updating but I was in many other units in the same condition and it doesn't matter. We are there for the sun & fun!
A guest from Clarks Hill, IN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 This was an excellent location for us and the weather couldn't have been better. The condo does need some updating. The cleaning fee is included but we were dissatisfied with the cleanliness. The condo needs a thorough going over. I think we left it in better condition. We did inform Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals in writing of this on our checkout. Would we rent here again? That's questionable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc. Thank you for your review. We only wish you had called us upon check in so that we could have corrected any cleaning issues. Guest satisfaction is our utmost goal and we pride ourselves with timely resolutions to any issues if we are made aware of them. We will pass along your suggestions of updates to the Owner of the Condo for review. Thanks again for your review.
Christine S. from Commerce Township, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 28 days in January, 2015 This unit is very spacious, but very outdated. Unfinished repairs on ceilings, tile on floors in bathrooms pretty dinghy. Pretty sparse kitchen utensils (had to buy a spatula so I could make fried eggs), but everything else essential was there. Very disappointed in TV in living room. Picture fluctuated from color to mostly black and white. If you're not going to update the facility at least update the amenities (TV). Also, was disappointed that the TV in spare bedroom was only DVD player. Did report to Florida Lifestyle, but it was towards the end of our stay so don't know if rectified. Good restaurants in the area. Coming again next year, but not this unit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc. Thank you for your review. We have passed your comments on to the Owner of the Condo with the updating suggestions. Unfortunately, cable does not run in the 3rd bedroom so short of rewiring, the TV will be just for DVD playing. Thanks again for your review.
This condo complex is very well maintained and a great location !
A guest from Springfield, VA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2014 The condo was very comfortable. It really needs to be referbished. The soaking tub in the master bathroom is very high and difficult to get into and out of for a shower. I was very dissatisfied with the kitchen equipment and when I called to get dishes and a cutting board, Florida Lifestyle were wonderful and Eva brought them that' afternoon. I will be coming again next year but to an updated unit. The tv in the guest room is only a DVD player. The view is wonderful and the beds are very comfortabl. Florida Lifestyle personnel were great. When I couldn't get on line they contacted the owner and got the correct password immediately.
Property Manager Response: Response from Florida Lifestyle Vacation Rentals. Inc. Thank you for your review. We have notified the Owner of the update needs and they have committed to address them on their visit this summer. Hope to see you next year. Thanks again.
Brian K. from St. Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Spacious and clean. End unit so it was pretty quiet. Unit could use a little upgrading but it was still very nice and comfortable.
Joel H. from Ft Wane, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 We have stayed in Beach Cottage 1314 for the past 6 years. Our stay has always been very enjoyable. We love the area. This year was a challenge since our family was ill for most of our stay. We really consider our stay our home away from home. It would be nice to see some of the amenities updated, but overall we always enjoy our stay.
A guest from Ft Wane, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 Overall we had a wonderful stay. We have stayed here for the past 5 years. Our unit was clean and every year it seems that our stay is more enjoyable. We did have one issue with not having a vacum and being able to clean the carpet. We will be returning in 2013. The management company seems to adress needs rather quickly.
Nancy H. from Kingston, NB recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2012 What a lovely condo and location was great. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool and watching the ocean and sunsets. Condo was generous in size - lots of space to move around. Would recommend this condo to anyone. Fantastic that you only had to go downstairs and you were on the beach and could walk for miles. If you didn't want to walk you could take the beach chairs provided in the condo and sit on the beach all day. Very relaxing.
