“Nice ocean view but not a sandy beach”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2014

Pro: clean, good location, nice ocean view but not a sandy beach for kids to play Cons: No toilet paper was provided for our stay. We called them and they said they would address the issue but they didn't do anything. One of the toilet didn't work properly. We had to manually fix it most of the time to flush it.

Response from the manager Thank you for reviewing Shimmering Sea. Ryson values your review and we hope you will stay with us again and receive the 10% loyalty discount. The Rental Contract states that Ryson provides one roll of toilet tissue per bathroom and one roll of paper towels for the kitchen, the guest is responsible for replenishment rolls of paper. Hope to see you this summer and we can certainly book you where there is sandy beach. -Christine

Very nice place with everything we needed. Close to the beach and close to town. Great location. Great pool. Especially enjoyed being able to set lounge chairs on the step in the pool. Called office about toilet - kept running and towel rack bar falling off wall and tried to get code to workout room. Never received a call back and never had anyone come by to see what they could do. So we were never able to take advantage of the workout room. Beds - very uncomfortable.

Great condo. Beds are the hardest and cheapest and none of us slept well. Even my 7 year old grand-daughter thought the beds were uncomfortable. But kitchen and living area was great. Might stay in another condo that is offered, due to the beds.

“My Review”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2012

I stayed in this unit during the bike rally weekend.It was very clean upon arrival. The only bad thing was the bunk beds in the one bedroom. Lucky the one couple didnt show up.I will stay here again next year.Great service for the door that fell off while we were all having coffee on the balcony and i called and upon our return it was put back on.
