It was our 34th annual beach vacation and 2nd year at Change of Pace! So, we are experienced and have discriminating tastes and requirements. Change of Pace has it all and Mitri makes it even better: big kitchen, lots of beds, big screened porch, sun porches, hammock, and we really liked and used the 2nd big refrigerator that was added this year. Thanks for the pie, Mitri! See you next year!

This condo was awesome. A great location and great amenities. My family of 15 stayed here for 5 nights and we absolutely had the best time. One night for dinner, the bonus family room with kitchen on the first floor accommodated over 25 people of my family staying in 2 condos of the Mediterranean. We were right next to Flora-Bama and listened to music one night from our balcony. When you go inside and shut the doors you don't hear a thing. We will definitely be back to stay here. The only issues we had was the key situation were you must have a key to access every entrance and elevator. Although the security is nice, it is very difficult when you have 14 people (mostly adults) and the realty company wants you to share 3 keys. Demetri was very kind and lent us his two keys so it ended up working out. Overall, this experience was great and we will definitely be back!

This unit is perfect! It is in a great location- close to beach and elevator access. The owner was extremely nice and helpful. The condo was well equipped, perfectly decorated, and very clean. We loved this unit and will definitely make it our future vacation destination. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. We highly recommend!

The condo is spacious and decorated very nicely! The views are fantastic, and we all enjoyed the great balcony that wraps 180 degrees around. We could see so many different views, depending on where you stand. Beautiful sunsets, the fantastic beach, etc. etc. We were there over July 4th and saw some outstanding fireworks displays! At times, there were so many we couldn't decide where to watch first! We had a great time on the beach and in the pool! The reason I don't give this a 5 star rating is because we reported the icemaker not working when we first arrived, and it never got fixed while we were there ( 7 days) although there is ice on the ground floor. There are many items in the unit in disrepair, ie drawers you cannot open because all the knobs are missing, loose seats on the commodes, broken knives, numerous pots and pans that were put away dirty from previous guests (we found when we started cooking) a shower stall that leaks all over the floor, etc. The basic interior is very nice, and we had a great time but someone needs to do some basic and also inexpensive repairs and maintenance on the unit.

 Our stay was terrific. We have a large family and a hotel was simply not an option. The view of the beach is wonderful. The condo had everything we needed for the week we stayed. It was clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend for families and we would love to come back!

---Kevin Baker, Treasure Island

Our family, my son, daughter-in-law, grandkids, my sister & I enjoyed your condo so very much. The balcony was so great with views of the bay & the gulf amazing! Lots of room for everyone. My son fished a bunch at the dock & caught lots of fish. You can see the charter boats go out every morning, watch the dolphins playing, watch the Para sailing & oh yes listen for the pirate ship that goes right by every day shooting the cannon LOL. Lot of great restaurants to check out near by we enjoyed wolf bay lodge, shrimp basket & François Italian restaurant very good. Plenty of beds & comfy ones too. New 55" TV in living room very nice but just got it day before our stay no guide so had to look around for what was on & HD channels but hey we were on vacation so had time to do it. IF you have large group of people to cook for you might want to bring a big skillet there is one but if you cook for very many you know you need more. Also maybe a Crockpot so food would be done when ya get in from the beach. Dimitri is a gem, he will be around if you need him & the key lime pie is yummy thanks dimitri for that :) would love to come back!

My stay was wonderful. It was very accommodating for 8 people. The price was wonderful for everything. We stayed on the 19th floor, we were able to see sting rays and dolphins... it was a great experience. We can't wait to stay again!!

---Crystal Allen, Treasure Island

 Demetrious was awesome. He brought over a key lime pie and visited for a few minutes. Great personality and host. I would recommend this place to anyone as long as it isn’t a week I want to stay...lol. The pictures don’t do this place justice. Beautiful and spacious with plenty of space. I can hardly wait to plan my next vacation there. Thanks Demetrious...Your the best.

 

---Charleen Burgos, Caribe 607

Another fantastic 2 weeks at Change of Pace!! The weather was terrible, but we had a great time anyway. Also had 8 family members who could not come, but that is beyond your control. Metri was wonderful in bringing pies, and checking in to be sure we did not need anything---a good friend. We plan to be there again next year.

 

---Elizabeth Swaim, Change of Pace

My family of 18 just spent a week at Change of Pace. The layout of the house was great for a large group.....bedrooms scattered around, and the large kitchen was perfect. Everyone from grandparents to small grandchildren had a blast. One small issue was quickly taken care of by Demitri, and we all had a wonderful time. If it hadn't been for ALOT of jellyfish in the water, if would have been a perfect vacation. We would definitely return and/or recommend this property for a large group.

 

---Robin Ellisor, Change of Pace

Everything was amazing. We have been to Gulf shores 4 consecutive years and this was our 3rd stay at The Lighthouse; our 1st in this unit. The pictures dont do the property justice--the balcony is amazing, probably spanning 30 YARDS, yes YARDS with ample places to sit and enjoy privacy even when others are on it! The rooms were great, living room is a great size to lounge in and the water and sand are tops! (we like the sand here better than Hawaii and Cabo) You cant find a better location that The Lighthouse and this condo is superb! Demitri was awesome and is the first property owner to contact us personally and come by to meet us, as well as to check in on us a couple times during our stay--it truly felt like we were at home! We will be returning and are already looking to stay here again!

This was our second time to stay at Here to Dream. Beaches and water were beautiful this year. As was last year, the house far exceeded our needs. We enjoyed the special care that had been taken to make sure the house was comfortable. We enjoyed the key lime pie once again! We look forward to being there again next year.

---Peggy Simpmson, Here to Dream

I would like to thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo for three nights, we really enjoyed it. Our family of nine had plenty of room and the amenities were great. I liked that it was right on the beach which was one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. The condo is very close to all of the things Panama has to offer. We will definitely consider staying here again when we decide to go back. Thank you so much!

The listing description was right on. The photos were accurately reflecting the rentals appearance and amenities. The whole condo was very well kept. People working all the time to keep it that way. When I found this web sight the first person I was contacted by was a man called Demetrious. Talking on the phone to this gentleman was very helpful. What a pleasant person. Everything he told me was on the money. When we arrived he was waiting on us to take us to our condo. It was everything I expected. I would recommend this condo to everyone. Everyone we came in contact with was above board. We ate at many establishments. They were all really good. The swimming pools, the lazy river hot tubs, so many attractions at the condo, my family had a wonderful time. We also enjoyed the beach very much. We rented a double Decker house boat for a day that was great. Went parasailing my grandkids were very impressed. Definitely a vacation that goes to the top of our list. Thank to all that was involved in our great stay. Thank you.

Wow what a place to stay, just as it was described and the view was even better. Very nice clean unit, and with the color scheme in the unit it is impossible to have a bad day, the colors alone puts a smile on your face. Demetrious met us there with a wonderful Key Lime Pie and helped us get our luggage up to the unit. He recommended several places to visit and places to eat he even made us a list, of corse one of the places he suggested was the outlet mall, my wife couldn't wait, oh yes we went into everyone. He also told us about the zoo he said it was small but we would be impressed and impressed we were, it's small but you can get up close and personal one of the best zoos I have ever been to. We happen up on Lambert's cafe and decided to try it and I'm glad we did, if you leave there hungry there is no help for you. Our stay was great and if you are looking for a great vacation this is the place to stay. We are already planning our next stay, we loved it and recommend it for any age groups there is something for all to enjoy. Thanks for a great vacation.

We had 2 families in the house (4 adults, 5 kids). The two king size beds are a MUST for a week of vacation as neither set of adults wanted to cram on to a queen. The house was very well maintained and the few minor issues that we had (outside shower handle broke) Demitri took care of immediately. Would definitely stay there again. A couple favorites to consider: The Hangout (middle of town, can't miss it) is a great place for an early dinner and stay late to listen to live music. They have stuff to keep both adults and kids entertained. Sea-doo's in the bay were a lot of fun for a day and it gives you a little variety. Finally, if you have time on the way down or the way out of town, Alligator Alley (on 59 about 30 mins north of Gulf Shores) was a highlight for the kids.

We stayed at the fabulous Treasure Island and had a marvelous trip. The pictures really do not do this place justice! Being able to wake up to the site of the ocean was amazing. We had lunch on the balcony, just enjoying the view. The location of the condo is perfect; there are several things to do all around it. I would highly recommend this place!

--- Treasure Island

Great location, out of the hub of busy traffic. Clean property. Lots of room....and lots of televisions! Property Manager friendly and helpful. Had fun dinner at LuLu's. The listing was accurate and would recommend this property to friends/relatives. We had a great time at Gulf Shores!

--- Wisconsin Review, Here to Dream

Awesome week had a great time plenty of room vary spacious. Property very well maintained and the pictures of the property are just as it appears. Owner was very accommodating, helpful and an all around nice guy. We have already recommended this place to several of our friends and family. Anybody out there looking for a Great place to stay and needs a lot of room Please take a look at the house "Change of Pace"!

--- Change of Pace

Loved this condo! It is large enough to accommodate 8 people very comfortably...and the bunks are long enough for most adults with very nice mattresses. The unit has views from not only the master, but also from the second bedroom window...eastward down the beach to Pier Park. The balcony views are great, and it was nice to also have city lights to look at to the east sitting out there at night. Everything in the condo was clean and well maintained. The property is very nice as well, with upscale-feeling lobby and a very nice pool/hot tub deck beachside. Pier Park is just down the street...walkable if you choose. Internet is available in the unit via ethernet cable (they had one at the desk)...and by wifi when downstairs in the lobby area. The owners were great to work with and made check-in easy by actually running our reservation through the on-site office. I recommend the place and would stay here again!

This resort was everything they advertised and more!! Everyone we came encounter with at the resort was super nice and helpful regarding any questions we had. It was by far our best vacation experience and we are strongly considering to make this trip an annual thing. The condo was superb from how courteous the owner was to all of us and the condo space and layout was more than we anticipated! If you're looking to get away and relax this is the ideal place to do that. Great vacation, great condo and wonderful experience all around, I would highly recommend anyone to stay here when considering the Orange Beach area!!

Change of Pace is a beautiful, comfortable home. Demetrious is very easy to deal with. He was very friendly and made it clear that if we had any problems, we could call him at any time. However, everything was perfect with no problems.

 ---Susan Salgat, Change of Pace

A wonderful condo with great amenities. We loved the steam shower, and the sunsets over the beach. Dimitri was a great host and made weekly visits to service the hot tub. The condo is very well equipped, although it did take us a day to figure out how to operate the range top. Well-located with restaurants and entertainment within walking distance. We'd definitely plan on returning.

--- Mojo, Mediterrean

This is our eighth Christmas at Change of Pace, and what a great surprise to walk in and see the new stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and wooden floors. That new French door refrigerator was such a treat to use--spacious and convenient. We maybe should have cooked jazzier meals in that gourmet kitchen. Good thing everyone brought hooded sweatshirts because the weather was 40ish, windy, and cloudy all but one day. We even took our annual family picture in our hoodies. The Bodenhammer Rec Center in Gulf Shores was a fun saver. We swam there, and played basket ball and volleyball. Our last day the sun came out and while we were outside a group of dolphins came by and slowly swam so close to the shore--maybe 40-50 feet out. The kids were so excited they went running down the coast a long way to follow them. This was a gift for all of us. Once the kids left we transitioned to Missouri Snowbirds and enjoyed the house and truly the 99% private beach. We like being able to entertain lots of our friends. This year is was 30 people for the Alabama vs Notre Dame Championship game Demetri was so attentive and took such good care of us. The house was clean, true to the listing, and of course, we would recommend it to friends---just not mid Dec. to mid Jan. because we will be back for our ninth Christmas at "our beach house."

 We stayed at this unit last weekend and it was beyond our expectations! Well appointed kitchen with clean furniture and breathtaking views of the Orange Beach sunrise! Excellent customer service provided by Paradise Realty and Demetris! We will hopefully be back later this year.

Our stay here was more than we expected. The balcony is huge and shows you everything from the pools, beach and the city. We absolutely loved it here and are planning our trip back down there for next year. By far the best condo we have every stayed in.

---Kevin Berry, Lighthouse 1418

Ahhhhhhhhh, paradise. The description and the pictures accurately describe the resort and the condo, but they are only the introduction to the story. We were excited when we booked the condo, and each day we loved it and Caribe Resort more and more. When you walk into the condo you first are overwhelmed with its spaciousness. Then you see the VIEW!!!!!!! Huge open concept living, dining, and kitchen area with two floor to ceiling walls of glass looking out over Perdido Bay.......boats coming and going, dolphin, fishermen (and women), pelicans, kayaks, and across the bay, assorted buildings and homes whose lights twinkle at night like stars.We did not miss being on the gulf coast at all. The stainless steel and black granite kitchen with chef pots and pans was a joy to cook in and even clean up. It was a treat to have a wine cooler. The living area has two recliners facing the TV and two easy chairs facing the bay which were my favorite spot. Caribe Resort has great security,and abundant, helpful, friendly staff who keep it impeccably clean and tidy. The resort has beautiful pools, lazy river, tennis courts, bocce ball courts, a putting green and so many other features that you will not get to use all of them. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. I would also recommend Cobalt the Restaurant at the end of the property for their buffet breakfast every morning, and their happy hour with drink specials and half price appetizers---my favorite: Firecracker Shrimp. I also heartily recommend the dolphin cruise by the Cold Mill Fleet whose boats create a wake that the dolphin jump in--so exciting. Lastly, Demetrious couldn't have been more helpful or attentive. He checked to see how we were doing and immediately got any thing we needed. We hated to leave.

Great views. Tastefully decorated. Master bedroom bed very comfortable. Everyone had a great time. Get BBQ in Foley at the Down South Barbeque and eat it on the balcony. I would recommend this property to family and friends. Bring a night light for the master bathroom as it is pitch dark with the blinds closed.

Plenty of space and perfect location! Relaxed and comfortable! We have bee going to AL for over 14 years and this is one of my new favorite places.

For a mature laid-back attitude and lifestyle rent this place and go to The Gulf:)

Oh my goodness, we had such a great time staying at Mediterranean 502W! This unit was awesome….great amenities and location. And Demetrious was so helpful, and the key lime pie was delicious. Life doesn’t get any better than soaking in the hot tub on the balcony, looking at the emerald coast and listening to music from the Flora Bama. Unless it is watching parachute jumpers land on the front yard (the beach) or taking a steam shower. We stayed here with a group of friends for the Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show Weekend, but are planning to schedule a week with our family (adult children) this summer. This is the place to stay in the Florida Panhandle!

 We enjoyed our stay very much! The condo was clean and well maintained. Perfect location for fishing, shopping and just a couple of miles from the Flora Bama! We all enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, the sauna and especially the lazy river! We ate at the Cobalt one night and the Crab Trap one night. We also attended the 41st Annual Shrimp Festival in Gulf Shores! We enjoyed Bushwakers at the Pink Pony in Gulf Shores. We've already decieded we're coming back next year! Our Agent Demetri was very accomodating, he even brought us a Key Lime Pie upon arrival!

THE CONDO WAS BEAUTIFUL AND THE VIEWS WERE AMAZING. ONLY GOD CAN CREATE SUCH BEAUTY!!! THERE WAS A VIEW OF THE BAY AND THE GULF FROM EVERY WINDOW AND DOOR. THE BOATS USED THE PASS MORNING AND EVENING AND WE ALSO VIEWED DOLPHINS EVERY MORNING. THE MANAGER WAS WONDERFUL. HE WENT ABOVE HIS DUTY TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. THANK YOU FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL STAY.

Hello from the Benefiel family! We drove here from Illinois to enjoy a family vacation. The children played with the tractors and trucks on the deck, while some laid in the hammock. Everyone else sat on the deck and the beach. Family from Atlanta invaded us, we thoroughly are thankful for the time together. We have made precious memories that we will cherish forever in our hearts. Thanks so much for sharing your home.

This condo is beautiful! The pictures accurately display this unit. It is decorated very nice and there is plenty of room for everyone. The views from the extra large balcony are stunning. We had a great time at this location. Every year we travel to the beach and this condo is at the top of our favorites. I would highly recommend this condo.

This condo is just like pics. The view is amazing and we did see dolphins swimming by 3 times in 1 week. Location is great with walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and the Hangout (which is great for teens). The condo is spacious and very clean. Be aware there is almost no dresser drawer space so will need to hang most clothes, but not a problem. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking items. They even provide sand toys and body boards. Demetrius is a great help if you need him. If we travel back to Gulf Shores we will likely stay in this condo again.

We have been to Gulf Shores multiple times, but this was our first winter visit. This unit is by far the best we have ever rented. With three bedrooms and three full baths, each family member was comfortable. The kids enjoyed the bunk beds! The view from the balcony was magnificent. The owner representative was very friendly and was available by phone or email during our stay. I would definitely recLighthouse 515ommend this well-maintained condo.

This was a great condo for a group of ladies on a tennis weekend. The State Tennis Association had its party at the Cobalt and we were able to walk to the party from our room. We also enjoyed the indoor hot tubs and pools! Views were spectacular. The accommodations were perfect!

Everyone enjoyed the long weekend at the beach. Change of Pace was an excellent choice for our family. All the rooms were comfortable - everyone slept well. The kitchen was excellent for our meal prep and there was PLENTY of room for everyone to eat. The living area was perfect for those who wanted to watch football. The covered screen porch was more than perfect for us to sit, rock, visit. The hammock was enjoyed during the weekend also. The beach was beautiful, close to the house. We couldn't have found a more perfect set up for our families to meet. There were 14 of us and there was plenty of room. The decor was just bright and cheerful, added to the "at the beach" atmosphere. Everything was clean and everything worked. Can't say enough - we're already making plans for 2013 and we'll be back to Change of Pace (as soon as we know our dates!) Metri was a pleasure to work with, VERY hospitable and VERY helpful. He is a gem. It was so nice to speak to an actual person and meet him for the tour of the house.

We enjoyed our stay at this very clean condo. It is nicely furnished and sleeps several. The photos accurately reflect the property. We had plenty of room to eat and lounge. The wrap around balcony afforded views of the sunset. The owner was the best!! He helped me out with a problem and was so great to work with. Demetry, is also great. He works for the owner and is most helpful. I will be booking another stay here and recommend you do the same.

--- Ree(Sheffield, AL), Lighthouse 1418

We recently returned from a week at this beautiful home with perfect views of the ocean. This is a great home for a relaxing week at the beach. We brought our two small children (ages 1 and 3) and the location was wonderful. The beach only had a few people on it (those in houses close by) and it was clean and great for sand castles. Demetri brought us a crib and high chair and was available to answer all of our questions and help us out with anything. The owners of the house sent us a welcoming gift of a yummy key lime pie and a sweet note. The kitchen is well equipped with anything you might need. The bedrooms are great. The views from the living room are spectacular! We're looking forward to staying here again in the future.

What an awesome view! Large wrap around balcony with views of the Gulf and Perdido Pass. The property is well maintained. The condo is almost 2000 sq/ft, so there was more than enough room for my wife, mother-in-law, two young kids, and I. We stayed for a month and it was like being at home away from home. All the beds were comfortable. I didn't see anything wrong with any of the furniture, so I don't know what the other people are complaining about. I took naps on every couch and recliner in the condo and had no problems sleeping. We spent a lot of time in the indoor heated pool and fishing on the pier. The pier has a large Tiki Hut with bathrooms, so if the kids get hot or tired of fishing (or your kids that have to go to the bathroom all the time like mine) then they can cool off or play under the Tiki Hut. For anyone that has a boat, you have your own boat slip that's assigned to the room. The complex, as a whole, has a quiet family type atmosphere compared to the “Sky Rises” you see everywhere along the Gulf Coast now. We've rented several houses (and condo's) on the beach in the past few years and this condo, off of the beach, beats them all. P.S. This unit DOES have private WiFi access which was fast.

We brought our California family down for a weekend at Caribe C604. Although our stay was short, it was fabulous. The rental and check-in process was so easy. The warm greeting by the management immediately made us feel at home. My husband even commented that we had not been treated as well in five-star hotels. The condo was decorated very tastefully, yet our family felt comfortable. The view was even more spectacular than it appears in the pictures. The children and the adults enjoyed the pools and the lazy river. Although I was worried about the beach being across the street, I found that I actually enjoyed it more on the bay: my whole family did. When we did go to the beach, it was not crowded; it was very quiet and peaceful. In addition, everyone enjoyed Cobalt restaurant which is close. Of course, a few went down the street to check out the FloraBama. San Roc Cay for shopping and dining is also close. My family loved the condo so much; they were ready to make our reservations for next year!

All the days have blurred together as we've all fallen into a lazy luu. Change of Pace indeed! Our four children have delighted in playing in the ocean waves and have returned to the beach house each afternoon sugared with sand and with the Gulf still on their skin. They smell of fresh air and sea. We've enjoyed searching the sands for shells, a few dolphin sightings, swimming in the waves, and going on many beach walks. It's been a perfect respite. There's something about the beach that makes that 'leave-it-all-behind' fantasy a reality. We were grateful for the company of both sets of grandparents and an aunt to boot. Thank you for giving us a beautiful seaside sanctuary. We love your home- the bright, cheerful colors, the amazing view, the lazy hammack. It has been a trip to remember and savior

This was such a wonderful relaxing vacation that we are all ready planning next years vacation! The description and photos did not do justice to the actual property. It was much more than we expected. The property was emaculate as well as the surrounding property. We appreciated the bridge over the highway so we did not have to fight traffic going to the parking garage. The balcony facing the beach was a wonderful way to wake up in the morning watching the rays and dolphins swimming so close, and a romantic way to end the evening with a glass of wine listening to the waves crashing in. The owner gladly answered any questions we had before our trip. We enjoyed going to Pier Park within walking distance of the property where we shopped and ate at Jimmy Buffet's Margarittaville and other unique restaurants. Deep sea fishing at Jubilee Fishing Boats was wonderful for the whole family. Those that wanted to fish could and those who did not could lay in the sun, snack at the snack bar, or just enjoy all the deep sea life like sharks, turtles, and dolphins! We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun relaxing vacation or a romantic getaway.

Although our stay was short, it was fabulous. The rental and check-in process was so easy. The warm greeting by the management immediately made us feel at home. My husband even commented that we had not been treated as well in five-star hotels. The condo was decorated very tastefully, yet our family felt comfortable.

The view was even more spectacular than it appears in the pictures. The children and the adults enjoyed the pools and the lazy river. My family loved the condo so much, they were ready to make our reservations for next year!

All the days have blurred together as we've all fallen into a lazy luu. Change of Pace indeed! Our four children have delighted in playing in the ocean waves and have returned to the beach house each afternoon sugared with sand and with the Gulf still on their skin. They smell of fresh air and sea. We've enjoyed searching the sands for shells, a few dolphin sightings, swimming in the waves, and going on many beach walks. It's been a perfect respite. There's something about the beach that makes that 'leave-it-all-behind' fantasy a reality. Thank you for giving us a beautiful seaside sanctuary. We love your home- the bright, cheerful colors, the amazing view, the lazy hammack. It has been a trip to remember and savor.

Our family loves Change of Pace, and have stayed there many times. We consider Metri a friend!

We are a family of 13 who have vacationed at the gulf for 17 years. We always spend part of our vacation looking for a better house for next year. That stopped 7 years ago when we found Change of Pace.

When you walk in you are overwhelmed with how big the house is. The kitchen is huge--8 bar stools around the island, 2 full sinks, double oven and equipped with everything you could possible want or need. One night we had 7 cooks working at once.

The house is bright and beachy colorful with lots of fun art work. The bedrooms are comfortable and feature a good bed and a TV/DVD player. There are large spaces to be together and lots of small spaces to quietly read or doze off. My favorite spot is the swing on the lower level. You walk down the deck stairs and step into the sand---beachfront at its best!!

Metri made the trip perfect. It was great having a familiar face when we got there.

--- Phil (Arkansas), Here To Dream


 

Excellent service, Metri helped make our trip a great experience. The condo and resort were amazing, we will definitely return.

This condo was absolutely lovely. The eastern facing view was wonderful... it allowed us to dine on the balcony in the evening and sit out there most any time of day. The leasor was quite accomodating and bent over backward to ensure our stay was pleasant. The pools were nice as well as the locally available water sports. I would HIGHLY recommend this condo to anyone.

--- Robert (Alabama), Caribe 408


 

Our family stayed in this condo and it was wonderful. We will look for this particular condo again next year. Not only are the views and amount of space fantastic, it was clean, well maintained, and furnished completely down to the kitchen utensils. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. The rental process was also very convenient. Not having much experience with condos, I wasn't sure what to expect. The owners were very easy to work with. Thank you for a great stay! We will be back.
