Well, I am now posting again after our recent trip to The Palms at Seagrove! We arrived on August 5 and left August 14th. We stayed in C-11 which was thru Garrett Realty. This was a first for me since the previous 3 times I had gone thru Resort Quest (formaly known as Abbott) The prices though are a bit more going thru Resort Quest which is why I went with Garrett. Well, don't think I will do that again. I was not impressed with the cleaning (lack there of) of the condo. The window sills were dusty and dirty, the hall bunks had a musty odor, the carpet had ALOT of stains and the sheets had some spots on them. I actually washed the sheets from the hall bunks before I put my kids in them. Now I know that some of it is not the housekeepers but you would think that Garrett Realty would go in and make recommendations for improvements. I liked that there was a vacumm but it was so loud it could wake the dead! (time for a new one I think) Even though Resort Quest is a bit more money we have always been pleased with the condo's they represent. Oh, and the silverware drawer could have used a good cleaning and the closet in the kitchen didn't seem that clean. As for the features of the Palms, we love them!! The 2 bathrooms are wonderful and the washer and dryer is a blessing! The exterior is very well cared for, the 2 showers at the top of the boardwalk is great when there are lots of people coming up from the beach and the pool is always clean!! This time I walked over to Beachside Condo's which is about 4 properties down and wanted to at least check out the outside of them and their pool and grounds since they are 2 bedrooms/2baths and were only $120 more a week. But I didn't like the grounds.....there are no beautiful palm trees, grass or green bushes like the Palms have. They only had one outdoor shower and the pool looked dingy. Oh, plus their balaconies were smaller than the Palms and each had an airconditioner on it to boot!! So, needless to say, we will ALWAYS stay at the Palms of Seagrove (the area is stunning!!) but will go thru Resort Quest from now on!
