We almost didn't rent the condo at the Waves because of the reviews but I am glad we did! The room{305} was spacious and very clean. It was comfortable and had everything that a family could need for a vacation. Comfortable beds and a washer and dryer in the condo! Karen at Choice Rentals was wonderful to deal with also!... More

Not too different from what we expected. We were disappointed because the amenities listed a fitness center, which was a deciding factor in our booking this place, however there is no fitness center. The pool bottom is sandy because people don't shower before going in after the beach. The unit we rented was mostly clean, except for some sticky countertops... More

I would only consider this condo if you are on a budget because you get what you pay for. We needed a 3 bedroom for a reasonable price that would allow pets, and this does fit that bill; however, the place was not well kept at all. The kitchen and furniture was outdated and worn. All the walls were marked,... More

This is our 3rd stay at the Waves. They accept pets. Our first 2 stays were great. The room we had this time was sub par. The owner of this condo #401 has no pride of ownership. Screens in windows were rotted in the frames, ice maker didn't work, stove wasn't fully functional. Old washer with an extremely small drum.... More
