“Nice vacation”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We stayed at Aqua #407 we rented through Blue sun Properties and it went very smooth the condo was clean and neat , we had a couple of rough days because of tropical storm debbie but after that it was very nice close to shopping that was great! The only complaint i had was the dvd players weren't plugged in and my daughters had to move furniture in the bed room to reach ther plug in to use them and it was the same way in master bedroom so I just didn't use my dvd player even though I brought dvd's didn't feel like moving tv and dvd player to watch a movie. But overall we really enjoyed our stay there the bed was very comfy and the view was spectacular.It was nice staying on 4th floor because if we didn't feel like waiting for elevator (sometime could be long) then we would take stairs because parking garage on 3rd floor so we would just walk up one flight staiirs. They give you codes for the garage and beach and room those are kinda hard to keep up with until you learn them. But I would definately stay there again!

We are snowbirds, and stayed at unit 2201. It was an end unit. Stayed there from January 4th to March 3, 2012.

The unit was very well decorated, and very clean. The only issue we had was the construction, therefore closed the indoor pool. It only opened in February.

Beds are pillowtops, and very comfortable. Furniture is very high end, quality built. Type of furniture we have in our home, so we felt right at home. The unit is nicer than the pictures. Ceramic tiles everywhere, so it was a breeze to clean. I am very particular about a unit being clean, and this one is very clean. The quality of the linens were superb, and everything was matching, and very clean. We had new front loading washers, therefore had no issues for laundry. Kitchen is very well equipped for long stays. Owner, Kathy, even got us a crock pot, which we were very grateful to have it for cooking.

Pier Park shopping, is just a short walk from the condo. Liz and Jane store is right across the street. Always enjoy going to her store. They have a back room, and open it up in February, and everything is just $5.00. All her clothes are made in the USA. Nice beach colours. Visit the store, you won't be disappointed with her designs.

The weather for 2012 for January and February was great. Very unusual for those months. Took advantage of walking on the beach. The view from the condo was great.

We really enjoyed our recent stay at Aqua. For the most part, the grounds are pretty well maintained and clean. The pools were kept clean, the beach area was great, and the view is amazing. We rented through a private management company, so I can't really comment on front desk staff because we never had to go to front desk. Our condo could have been cleaner. It was clean for the most part, but a lot of walls, corners, and carpet areas have been ignored. Our condo needs some updating. The couch is an old yellow hideaway that has seen better days and not comfortable at all. We booked late, so we didn't have a lot to choose from. We will probably come back, but we will definitely book earlier, so we can get a more updated and hopefully cleaner condo next time. It wasn't horrible as far as cleanliness. I have seen much worse, but I think their cleaning service needs to be more detailed in cleaning (wipe dried food off walls. make sure toilets are completely cleaned under rim including sediment stains, and crumbs from previous renters not left on placemats).I would have rather checked in 2 hours later and had some better detailed cleaning done for an even better stay. We had a great time, and our rental included the beach chair service, which was awesome. We will go back, but you just need to do your research and read reviews to get one of the cleaner more updated condos.

We stayed in #210. I scoured all the photos from both the onsite agency and VRBO to find a unit with floor to ceiling windows in both the master and living room. There are many configurations of units, so you do need to pay attention to the photos posted to make sure you get the combination you want. The property is spotless, new and maintained, and constantly surveyed by security staff making their rounds at the pool and grounds to ensure everyone acts appropriately and that the riff-raff don't set up camp. (Codes to the pools and from the beach also help out with this.) The 2 pools are clean and beach chairs are plentiful. I loved the signs that warn: "Please note: Towels do not reserve beach chairs, people do. Unattended towels will be removed." Love it! The pool deck and all rooms/ areas are non-smoking, but I wish they did a better job of enforcing that with the security staff poolside. Always seems I get set up only to have a smoker move in next to me! With that exception, you will love this beautiful property in the heart of it all in PCB!

Great location and view. The condo is okay, but not very roomy compared to other condos. The beach is clean and not crowded. The pool snack bar is very small and nothing special. We stayed in 2211 which is a 2 BR corner unit which was extremely clean and well decorated with an amazing L-shaped balcony. It had 2 King beds and bunk bed with futon. Big 55" TV in living room and 37" flatscreens in both bedrooms. Pier Park is very close with lots of good restaurants and movie theater.

Aqua is a nice place to stay if only they could silence Shuckums, the bar across the street. I stayed on the east side of the building right across the street and the music starts thumping at 8:00 or 9:00 pm every night (not just weekends) The music not to mention crowd noise can be heard inside the rooms facing the street and I'm not talking about a dull noise-- it's full on thumping (and we're on an upper floor). This is supposed to be a family friendly place, but for the prices your kids should be able to sleep instead of being kept up half the night by the bar across the street. The condo security won't do anything either because the units are individually owned. If you stay here make sure your condo is as far away from Shuckums as possible.

Room Tip: Suggest staying on the west end of the building to avoid the noise & music from the bar across t...
