This was our second year in a row to Coral Lagoon for a New Year's eve party with friends. Last year we were in Unit 1; this year found us booked into Unit 4 -- both on a peaceful canal. We also rented a boat slip for friends who were meeting us there on their boat. The units are spacious and decorated with a Keys touch, although some of the furniture in the living room is getting a bit dirty and worn around the edges. Overall, for both stays, the units were well cleaned. Unit 1 is a nicer unit than 4 because it is on the end and gives you the luxury of a side window. Otherwise, they are essentially the same. We had a fabulous time enjoying the New Year slide in with our friends and sitting on the porches overlooking the canal. Both years we have been entertained by wonderful fireworks from across the way.
There were some disappointments that could be remedied easily to make this a high-class property. If you want the condo cleaned daily, there is a $75 per day cleaning fee. As we are quite capable of cleaning ourselves, we chose to forgo this fee. However, there were absolutely NO cleaning supplies and not a mop or broom in sight. So we weren't able to clean up after ourselves easily and when a glass got broken on the tile floors one evening, we had a difficult time dealing with it. Because it was after office hours, we had nowhere to get anything to sweep with. Luckily, our boat friends provided a broom so that we could clean it up. Their website advertises a well-equipped, gourmet kitchen.....It is beautfully appointed with maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances. However, if anyone wants to cook and eat there (our plan!), you could never do it on the glassware, plates, utensils, and cookware in this kitchen. Considering that this is a three bedroom condo with 6 sleeping places, it would make sense to provide 6 glasses, plates, etc... Nope! Once again, we had to borrow from our friends on the boat. One kitchen towel was expected to last for our entire stay and NO extra trash bags could be found in the unit. The smoke detector in the living room was obviously broken and needed replacing. Some lightbulbs were out. The upholstry on the couch and chairs should be shampooed or replaced.
Overall, we had an amazing time. Coral Lagoon is a well-located and has the potential of being a 5 stars getaway. More attention to the little details would go a long way to making it perfect.
