To start, we have stayed at Holiday Villas III before. We stayed in a different condo last time. This review is for condo 301. Upon entering the condo the musty and old smell was very noticeable. We also found food crumbs on all of the counters in the kitchen and dining area. There was stuck on food, on the kitchen floor that had obviously been there for quite a while. The toaster and blender that were on the counter had caked on food from previous use. Some of the kitchen utensils had old food stuck to them and the front of several cabinets had stains from whatever had been spilled on them in the past.

All of the floors needed to be swept and mopped. The rug at the entrance was dirty. The bed was ok but the pillows need to be replaced. There was broken glass outside on the balcony. Generally, the place needs a complete cleaning. We spent the first couple hours of our vacation sweeping, mopping, and cleaning the place. We went and bought cleaning products and a decent mop so we could clean the floors.

I'm not sure who they pay to clean this place, but they should lose their job! I can't believe that we have to pay a cleaning fee and the condo isn't clean when I arrive. I think they should've return my cleaning fee. The condo was cleaner when we left than it was when we arrived.

Love the building and the location. We have stayed at this building before. Not sure if I would come back again or recommend it to anyone else.

We stayed in unit 404 for a week in mid-October. This is a Gulf-front unit with excellent views both to the north and south along the beach. The unit was very clean when we arrived. The master bedroom, with a Gulf-front window, had a queen sized bed and en suite bathroom. The second bedroom had 2 double beds and a nearby bathroom. The beds were comfortable. The living and dining areas were more spacious than any condo we've ever stayed in before. The kitchen was stocked with adequate dishes, glassware and cookware. There were pool and beach toys and a beach umbrella but no beach chairs. The wi-fi speed met our needs. We spent most evenings on the balcony listening to the waves and enjoying the breeze. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Since no one was checking in immediately after us, we were allowed to have a later checkout. We would definitely return to this resort and to this particular unit.

Room Tip: Front and center of the building, any room ending in 04"

No rating would be good for unit 101!
Others i met complained about cleanness of this location too!
Had to clean when we got here! Yuk
The kitchen, drawers in the kitchen, Counters, fridge. All gross!
Pillows on the bed were old, uncomfortable and smelled bad. Beds were all hard as a rock, uncomfortable! Living room smelled and couch worn dirty and sinks in. Had to mop all floors - water was black!
Air conditioning unit on balcony. Loud and blows hot air!
Other u its had a closet with beach chairs etc. This unit the closet was locked.
Rented chairs on the beach. Left towels and bags there all day with no problem!
Need to buy everything - garbage bags, paper towels, toilet paper, dish liquid. A pain when you are flying!

Thank you for writing a review of our unit 101. I apologize that some of your expectations were not met during your stay. Our on-site rental office is open 7 days a week to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have during your stay. Our rental agreement is lengthy, however many of our guests appreciate the attention to the detail and the general guidelines for renting a personal residence from our owners along with the information of what we do and do not supply in the unit. We have a responsibility to both our owners and our guests and try to establish an equitable balance for all parties concerned. As the onsite rental office for HOLIDAY VILLAS III, we pride ourselves on ensuring our guests have a great vacation experience and always encourage our guests to call our office anytime to discuss any issues or concerns at 727-517-9404 or 1-877-444-4833. We wish you had informed us of the issues you had during your stay and we would happily have done everything possible to make it right for you. We are here to help the guests in the on-site office every day - we have a lot of direct contact since we are not some faceless "virtual office" with a home office in parts unknown. We are right here, on site and in the condos. Our repeat guests who have been coming many, many years, including in 101 can attest to this. We wish you all the best in your future vacations.

Gross. The glasses in the cabinets were filthy. Rinsed and still wet. Not washed. We have stayed in the same condo for the last 3 years, no updates, mildew worse than ever. Could have rented an updated condo for $300 less in the same building during this time. Asked about that, and Holiday Villas iii said to direct our booking with the owner to book with them next time. So will. Last time in a privately owned condo here.
