We have enjoyed Beachside Colony 5 times before, and this short trip was supposed to be a lovely spring fling in celebration of our 5th Anniversary. We enjoy the proximity to the beach and 3 pools. On-sure restaurant means we rarely leave the premises.
The room was cheap, and we were warned that there was only one window, but we didn’t realize it faced an interior wall and let zero light into the unit. For a terrible little dark closet of a space, it was well decorated and stocked. To make matters more interesting, the AC/Heat wasn’t working. Stifling sticky costal air is not fun to sleep in, especially when you can’t just open a window. WiFi did not work for the duration, TV issues as well.
Many visits (vacation interruptions) later, the 3rd worker figured out that somehow our room shared a unit with the neighbors, and we would have air for the last day of our trip.
To make up for it, the rental company (Tybee vaca rentals) gave us the entire day on Sunday to relax in the space, and even told us to stay an extra night, plus they gave us a $50 gift card to dinner. One night was refunded. Hard to have a bad time at the beach, so we just avoided the unit unless we needed to sleep or shower.
We checked in on 2/15 for 3 nights. When we walked into the unit, the bottom drawer on the stove was broken, the light over the sink in the master bathroom was out, the television in the living room did not work, the bulb in the floor lamp in the living room was out,2 pictures were on the floor that should have been hung, there were no paper towels, only 1/2 roll of toilet paper in one of the 2 bathrooms, and no tissues. Laundry area filthy. I removed a small zip lock bag full of lint from the dryer. Ironing board was broken. When I went into the office the ladies in the office were extremely polite and apologetic, that doesn't negate the fact that none of this should have happened. I explained to them that I rent my beach house out in the summer and if I ever attempted to rent it out in the condition this property was in, my real estate agent would refuse me as a client. Last but not least, on Saturday morning I brought the broken ironing board to the office, they assured me that a new ironing board would be outside my door when we returned (they could not put it in the unit as we were leaving our dog in the condo). Needless to say when we returned no ironing board. Side note the elevator walls were all scratched up. Certainly did not make a good initial impression and it just went downhill from there.
We rented a one bedroom condo for 5 nights. The location of the property was perfect, as this condo overlooked the beach and ocean.We spent a lot of time on the balcony enjoying the view and ocean breezes. The property was very clean, neat, and well-maintained. There were three swimming pools which we did not use as we spent all of our time on the beach. The few times I dealt with the registration desk, they were very nice and professional. We plan to return in the near future. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a one bedroom condo on the beach!
The house was beautiful the resort was perfect there are 3 pools which was great for my 10 year old niece the resort is very dog friendly the beach was literally a few feet away we were in the pool every at the beach every there are restaurants at pool site so many shops nearby. We stayed in a three-bedroom Resort we had an ocean view the condo was spectacular all new appliances, immaculately clean. There is a balcony which has a beautiful ocean view master bathroom was amazing. We were able to enter the condo with a code, we didn't have to worry about holding on to any keys which was great and convenient. My whole family we're very comfortable and loved every minute of it.
We rented a two master suite bedroom / bathroom condo. Very roomy good beds , one King and one Queen Bed. Flat screen TV's in all rooms and two balconies. All new appliances super ice maker. Washer and Dryer and dishwasher. 3 POOLS and a very good cabana bar outside and restaurant inside with decent food. Excellent wait staff and very good bartenders. The place adopted some cats after the last storm and they just walk around. Don't bother anyone but friendly. Very short walk to the beach . Plenty of safe parking on site.
