Overall it was fine. Our only complaint was that aside from the one recliner in the living room, the other chair and the sofa were less then comfortable. The rental instructions on the key pickup need to be revised. We stopped at the rental office and found no key in the kiosk. Fortunately someone was still at the office. Had they not been there we would not have known it was in the lock box at the unit.I even called from the road to tell them we would be quite late and make sure that the key would be at the office. Minor point but after driving 11 hours guest don't need any surprises.

Rental was very clean and bright. Doors and windows were a little creepy and hard to operate, especially front door lock. Needs hooks for coats by front door. Video player ate one of our tapes. Ac was not working but when called, management came right away and the young man was very professional. Fixed it right away. Did not care for the maintenance area located right next door, lots of smoking and gentlemen going in and out, golf carts coming and going out front. But, overall, a very nice unit. Roomy, clean, and mostly quiet.Just needs a little sprucing up on windows, sliding and front doors. When we saw the front door we cringed a bit, but were pleasantly surprised and relieved when we saw how nice and neat the inside of the unit was. I would recommend this to a friend.
