Staying at the beach was wonderful, but there were some negatives to staying at this particular house & with the realtors that you should consider before renting.
There is NO COVERED DECK to sit on when it rains or to get out of the sun on very hot days. It appears there is on the main level in the photos, but there is not & you will get drenched when it rains or have no shade on sunny days. Big negative for those wanting to spend a lot of time on the deck if the weather doesn't cooperate.
Army heliplanes are constantly flying over, multiple times every single day.
Description brags about the TV system, but we found you have to use about 3 or more remotes to get anything to play & you have to be a genius to figure out which remotes to use. IF you ever get the "Smart" TV to work, you then end up stuck in screens where they demand you pay for movies/shows & it's nearly impossible to get out of those screens. I have never experienced such a FRUSTRATING system in my life (and I've experienced many systems in my 51 years of life). We ended up barely using all those TVs because of this.
This is a Non-Smoking unit as are the units around it, but BEWARE: neighbors smoke on their porches & the smoke goes right around to your porch, right in your face, very strong. Since we had persons with asthma & allergies, we couldn't even sit on our deck while neighbors constantly smoked. When we emailed our problem to Treasure Realty, there was absolutely no response. BEFORE vacationing here, our numerous emails were answered almost immediately. I suppose, after they get all your money, they don't care anymore.
If you are a hot natured person, BEWARE they only allow you to keep the air conditioning set at 72 degrees. This is not a problem during the day, but at night, it feels like you're suffocating, especially on the top floor (4th) where all the heat of the day rises & it's almost impossible to sleep.
You'll find WARNING signs everywhere in the house telling you “DO NOT!” do this & "DO NOT" do that or you'll have to pay EXTRA FEES. The signs talk down to you like you are a stupid child, no please or thank you included. Signs on the refrigerator, above the thermostats, on the elevator, on the porch, etc.
The Elevator is very small, HOT & claustrophobic with WARNINGS about it stopping & guests getting stuck & that you'll have to pay EXTRA FEES if you made some error in using it & there is a long list of instructions for using it. Evidently, it is very finicky & we held our breath every time we used it hoping it wouldn't go out on us & we would get stuck & then have to pay outrageous fees.
Be AWARE that Maintenance people will constantly come & go throughout your visit, some with warning (at check-in) & others who just appear with no warning & scare/shock/surprise you while you're lounging on your deck or inside resting & they have keys, so whether or not you feel like company, they will come invade your privacy. Some took only a few minutes to do whatever maintenance they wanted to do while others took over an hour & a half.
If you have any issues with stairs, be aware there are MANY here. If you are afraid of the elevator (or afraid of the FEES you will have to pay if you don't operate it correctly), then you will have MANY stairs to climb & descend AND you have MANY stairs outside going up & going down to even get to the beach. There are no shortcuts, so you need to be in great physical shape to stay here.
The ocean was gorgeous & the waterway seen from the back of the house was beautiful & it was a nice place to birdwatch.
