We rented a condo unit at 1800 Atlantic thru VRBO and dealt directly with the owners who were attentive, easy to work with and readily available for any questions before our arrival. Apparently a few concerns listed in our review on VRBO were not taken well as that review was never published there. I am always confident my review on tripadvisor will be published as long as we are fair and honest. We had been warned about the construction going on there when we booked our stay, and were told it was nearing completion. When we pulled up, it was very evident the work was no where near completion, as heavy construction was in full swing. it really did not bother us much though, the work was done during the day when we were touring. The workers were always very polite. It did make entering the garage and enjoying the outdoor amenities difficult though. Even though construction was ongoing near the pool, it was kept clean and inviting, as was the hot tub. Apparently the construction, as well as the timing of our visit kept the crowds down, as we rarely saw other people in the common areas or pool. The condo had a great balcony and view of the ocean, we spent a lot of time out there, enjoyed breakfast in the morning looking at the ocean. The condo seemed to need a good cleaning, especially the kitchen which needed updating. There were tiny ants all over the counter tops, which seemed to be remedied by wiping the kitchen counters off. The appliances were in good working order, but should have been cleaner. There was a smell of old grease in the kitchen, we had planned on cooking some meals at the condo, but only did twice as it was not very inviting. The condo was comfortable otherwise. We had to make a special trip to buy laundry detergent and dishwashing soap as we were required to wash linens and dishes and none was provided. It makes me nervous to think that renters are responsible for doing laundry with no detergent provided, as you cannot be sure how well the linens were cleaned with no supervision of cleaning personnel. The basics - air cond, hot water, internet, etc - all worked well. While there is no direct beach access here, a short walk around the block provides access to Smathers beach. A bike/car/taxi is needed to visit down town and most attractions, although we walked everywhere, probably about 5-6 miles total per day! We would be very anxious to see the building when renovations are completed, our stay was comfortable despite a few minor issues.
