“Great Location, Poor Management”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in April 2016
3
people found this review helpful

My family of 4, my sister, and her husband stayed in this rental in April of 2016. We loved the location-right across from a path to the beach. That couldn't have been better. There was a parking spot in front of the condo. There was a beach wagon and some boogie boards to use when we got there.
The layout is great. 2 bedrooms on the third floor, half bath on the 2nd with living room and kitchen, then stairs down to entrance and garage. Street noise was a problem-we slept with ear plugs in every night.
The problems we had: Floors were FILTHY. I mean, black feet after walking a few steps. Kitchen counters were also covered in some kind of black grime. Cabinets were full of sticky residue and crumbs. Beds were not made fully. We didn't have enough towels for the 6 people staying there.
I immediately called the management company about the towels (we hadn't realized all the other stuff yet) and they said they would have the maid send some over the next morning, which they did.
I sent an email the next morning after we saw all the other stuff to let them know that their cleaning service either wasn't doing what they were supposed to or that they hadn't cleaned the condo at all. Their response was they would forward the email to the cleaning service.
Days go by and we hear nothing. There was no way for us to clean the floors ourselves because the mop in the garage was disgustingly dirty. I emailed them the morning before we left to let them know the cleaning people had never come out. The response back was that they had in fact been out to clean while we were gone the day before. I let the management company know that there was no way because the floors were still just as dirty as when we had checked in. I asked for our cleaning fee back and let them know we were extremely disappointed in their lack of response in this situation.
Unfortunately for the owner of this rental is getting a bad deal. After looking at some of the other reviews for rentals Pinellas Vacation Rentals (through iTirip) manages it seems like this is a common thing. Specifically, dirty floors and poor responses.
This condo wasn't in a rental condition when we got there.

“Watch out for the neighbors!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a residential area but we never expected to be treated so poorly by the next door neighbor.
We are a quiet family of five and chose this place because of the location. We don't like the crazy commercial beach areas. Was supposed to accommodate six people but it doesn't. There are only four seats to dine and maybe that many to sit in the living room. Furniture is like a suede/velour type, not at all ideal for a beach condo. Two bedrooms upstairs takes care of four sleeping comfortably but we brought an air mattress as the "sleeper" sofa is dirty and not user friendly.
There were moldy coffee grounds in the coffee maker when we arrived as well as many trails of ants. Nothing we couldn't over look but still disappointing.
Poor paint job and the lowest quality of linens and bath supplies. This is definitely a just the basics type of place.
It was clean and bright and location was perfect.
Our biggest upset was when we went down one morning and found a rude and nasty letter from the next door neighbor saying how loud we were. Ummm,,,there are wooden stairs and it echoes very badly. We stayed late and watched movies and played games and cards. The only way to the bedroom is up...duh.
The rental company Pinellas Vacation Rentals then emailed and asked us to respect our neighbors. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? They didn't even ask us about it, just assumed what the neighbor said was true. So ridiculous.
I would not recommend staying here unless you don't want to talk for a week.
