“Satisfied for first time visit”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2013

I loved renting from Port A Escapes. They are great. Our property was ok. I wasn't fond of the musky smell and older appliances. But these things were tolerable. The pool was great. And overall the room suited our needs.

“The Sand Bar”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2013

The only window this property has faces the parking lot. There was a beer can cap behind the coffee maker which tells me it was not properly cleaned and the floor by the bathroom sink was sticky. The outside door of the fridge was rusty and the throw rug in the kitchen needed to be thrown away. Also, no bath matts or place to hang your wet swim suites and towels.

We rented Ir-16 for a weekend at the beach. We specifically chose this unit based off of the glowing reviews and location. I was disappointed with the condition of the condo itself. When we walked in we were greeted by gritty floors (I expected sand, but I assumed that the floor would be cleaned prior to arriving) and the refrigerator door that I thought had splattered marinara sauce on it but it was actually stained from rust. The whole place had a strange smell (I think due to the humidity and the fact there is shag carpet over much of the area which absorbs all the moisture) and part of the ceiling in the bathroom was falling in. The blinds were also missing panels so I was glad that there was a bamboo shade covering the window, although we could still lay in bed and watch people walk by relatively clearly. It was pretty obvious that this particular unit has a lot of wear and tear on it and needs quite a bit of touch-up maintenance. While the size was perfect for our needs (only my husband and myself), next time we will look elsewhere (I would give this place 2.5 stars if I could). That being said, the walk to the beach is very convenient, and pool on site was very nice (overall, the grounds were well-maintained). Overall, I would probably stay at the Island Retreats again, just not this particular condo.

“Our Experience at Island Retreat (positive and negative)”

We enjoyed being close to the beach, it was nice to be able to walk to the beach without getting in car. However we were not pleased w/ the condition of our room & some things. There is a large area on fridge door that is rusted & every time we walk by it, we thought spaghetti sauce was spilled all over it. There are few missing blind slats on the window, we were not able to change our clothes without hiding in bathroom. The rug in the kitchen is VERY FILTHY. It's something that we would throw away. The knives (Miracle Blades) weren't clean. The lid to large trunk (one that stores extra sheets, pillows, etc.) is broken, it wasn't safe to put suitcases on it without it moving around. On the morning of our check out, we wanted to vacuum the floor, but the handle to vacuum was broken, we could not get it to start. We went to condo office to ask for another vacuum & they weren't able to help. The manager in the condo office told us that we had to call a number to request for another vacuum, we explained that we are deaf & cannot make phone calls, so she made the phone call for us (w/ an attitude). No one showed up w/ another vacuum in time for us to vacuum before check out & return the key to you by 11 a.m. The website, rules print out, etc. said there is a dishwasher, but we did not see one, there is dishwasher soap under the sink, but no dishwasher? So we had to hand wash instead. We were disappointed to find out that you do not have ADA Compliance Kit for the deaf as it is required by law. See link: So we got 20% discount from the total cost because of this & we had to bring our own equipment which was not easy. Besides the stuff mentioned above, it was really nice to be so close to the beach, the swimming pool was very nice, loved the fact that it's a dog friendly place, the security patrols were very friendly, the front desk lady (not the manager) was very nice.

The room was beautiful...and u look in kitchen, very nice except for the rusty doors on fridge!! Tacky!

“good”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2013

Mattress was bad..******. The pillows were pathetic. There was no place to dry wet beachwear. Hey, we're gonna have wet beachwear. And the blinds didnt provide much privacy. Other than that, the location was great. The girls in the office were friendly. I didn't meet a single ****** person. Appliances worked. Everything else was great. Loved it and plan to be back next year. And I do so appreciate that my dogs were allowed. P.S. Tim fixed the suspended ceiling in the shower area and the bathtub trim. He felt sorry for the place. I was happy there.

“Looked Great, But...”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

The room looked very professional, but it didn't feel the part. The bed was very uncomfortable, and my children decided to sleep on the floor because it was softer than the sofa bed. It was too small of a room to say it's for four people just because it has a sofa bed. Another note was the fridge, it was so dirty with dried up oil, I'm guessing, but it was the first thing we saw when we opened the door. Overall, we went there for the beach, but the room just a little TLC.

“Way better than what I anticipated.”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2013

This place was awesome. It's very clean and small and will can sleep 2 adults and 2 kids just fine. Very relaxing after a day in the sun. Nice little kitchen with all the tools also. Make sure you get the address of the rental before you get there (especially if arriving after hours) because the condo is a different address than the Port A Escapes office. We had a great time and will rent again!!

“Nice trip”
