We made our plans late and this was the only unit available for our schedule. The bedrooms face the front sidewalk. Not only can you hear everyone walking by, but they keep the lights on all night and the blinds did a poor job of blocking the light. Needless to say, sleeping was a challenge. The location is across the street from the beach which is not bad as it is only a short walk through a gate to the beach. But the view of the beach from the balcony is obstructed. You actually end up looking directly into the living room of several units in the building just across from this building. Customer service was less then would be expected from a facility such as this. We were unfortunate to experience a water main break that cut the water supply for most of one day. Not the condo's fault at all, but beyond a phone call they did not offer any assistance to us. No bottled water no nothing. We were under a boil water notice for three days. To top things off, I had accidentally left a very expensive therapeutic pillow I use due to a herniated disk in my neck. We realized this once we got home late in the afternoon and called the condo office that evening and left a message that we left the pillow and also gave them our FedEx number to ship it back to us. We called again and again over four days with no response from Calini. Finally on Wednesday they called back and said they were shipping it. It is a one day ground trip as we only about 1.5 hours away. But by Friday when it did not arrive we called again and they said it was being picked up that day. We then had to pay for overnight Saturday delivery so I did not have to wait three more days to get it on Monday. My suggestion is plan a little further ahead then we did and find another condo to enjoy the white sandy beaches of the west coast of Florida.
