“Turtle Crawl Inn #62”
Reviewed June 26, 2010

P.S. to Never rent a condo from Resort Quest. After writing a scathing letter to R.Q. about the hole that is unit #62 they contacted me to apologize and assured me that they were taking action to renovate, remodel, and clean this unit. They also presented me with a 2 night gift certificate to appease me for the terrible experience. I would still however be very careful if leasing from them.

Booked online through Resort Quest. Found out later that a better deal may be had by going directly through Angel at TCI. Angel was very nice and gave us the name of a great restaurant - the Lazy Lobster. No complaints re: Resort Quest however. Very accomodating after the A/C in our first unit (303) was not functioning. Moved to 201 the next morning, which was actually nicer. Guests should note that check in (when booking through Resort Qwest) is not at TCI. Also, we stayed during the days that the elevators were being worked on, so the repairmen were always just outside our 201 door. A little noisy sometimes. However, thank you to the repairman who helped us with our luggage.
Re: #201 - lighting in the bedroom could be improved. No full length mirror and no CD player. Otherwise, very nice. TCI has well cared for grounds and is just steps from the beautiful beach.

What a wonderful condo. I will consider it a home away from home. we want to make this our place to get-away to often. It is move in ready as the condo has everything you could possibly need. #401 is immaculate, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The view is fantastic!! We have been to many resorts but the location, the view and all they had to offer made it a vacation to remember. We spent many hours on the beach sunning and on the balcony enjoying the view of great sunsets (fantastic breeze). I love the layout, you can be in the living room/kitchen and enjoy the beautiful view. The kitchen has it all, but if you don't feel like cooking, there are some very nice restaurants within 10 minutes. It was a great place, a great vacation. 401 is our new place away from home!

Turtle Crawl Inn (Unit 401) is the best furnished unit at this location. Everything is available for your stay away from home. The beach is at your doorway and the sunsets are beautiful. There is also a small swimming pool and laundry facilities. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

This is a rebuttal to the guest who stayed in 83 booked with Angel's Vacation Rentals I personally showed her the new room that she was to go into and she thought it was a great condo after about 3 days she came to me with her first and only complaint of a bad frying pan at that time I gave her a new set of frying pans no mention of a tea pot or cupboards or anything else just that the weather was cold . . She was given new towels not old stained towels at the towel exchange. The point is she did not complain( I took care of each and everything that she needed fresh towels, paper towels, toilet paper etc. ) until after she left and not during her stay as she could have been moved to another condo if she was unhappy for any reason as well as returning to 83 villa She wanted her money back after her complete stay and she was at home.

Spent 3 days in rm 83. Very nice and well looked after. Not the view we expected. Move to tower unit 304. At first glance is seemed ok with wonderful view of the gulf. After staying there 10 days we were so disgusted with the place we couldn't wait to leave. Our agent, Angel of Angels vacations was very accommodating at first but she laughed our concerns away. The unit is so below standards I'm not sure how they can rent it out. The cupboards are old,smelly and rotting. The kitchen is under equipped. We had to buy a tea kettle as theirs was so gross. The towels and facecloths were stained, so again I bought my own. The couch and chairs are old and well worn. Every piece of furniture was filthy. If you don't mind low standards this is the unit to rent. Angel now manages the Turtle Crawl, so I don't expect anything will change. I really enjoy Long Boat Key but this stay is making us reconsider our next visit there.

We stayed in the tower T401 and loved the condo. The view was great. The condo was clean and had everything you need. The owner was accomodating and happy to make our stay comfortable. The beach was excellent. Much wildlife to see. The condo is right down the road from St. Armands Circle, Mote Aquarium and many restaurants.
