This place is horrible, please don't ruin your vacation. Here,s why, from the beginning the staff are very rude. You get to your over priced room and the carpet and furniture are filthy . They locked the thermostat so that it would not go below 75. We called the desk. They sent a guy with some hoses , he said...

Stayed in a condo unit and unit was good. Owner was best and so helpful.Great view. That said, we were on 23 floor and trying to get to beach could take 40 min during checkin/checkout time. Parking garage across street so if you can't get on level 3 then it's stairs or elevators, 3 different elevators to get to room...

I rented an overpriced one bedroom condo for the week. The owner- super nice. The management- the worst. The first morning we woke up with water flooding our bathroom. I emailed the owner about it and told her I thought the hair lodged in the newly renovated shower was the problem. Thought it was fixed. Apparently, this shower was leaking...

Stayed in a rundown, worn out 1 BR 1BA condo. Highly overpriced considering you're only paying for the nicest parts....the balcony and a decent kitchen. We could've/should've stayed at a classy, full service resort for the same price. Don't forget about the additional fees...non-refundable $85 clean-up fee (even when you clean it yourself prior to departure) and $45 "damage waiver"....

The property and unit were very dirty, which was a shame because it has good potential. The master bedroom had no comforter, just a worn blanket. The carpets throughout were horribly stained, we joked that someone had been killed in the bedroom. The couch was so stained and had something plastic (a condom?) sticking out of a cushion, that we...

After staying at Tidewater last year, this so called resort reminded us of a Days Inn. Opened the door and was hit by an old musky smell. Liner in shower was nasty with mold! Carpet was dirty & stained. Horrible smell at entrance to beach. Can not take cooler in pool area. View was beautiful but you can get that...

Dirty- the bedding pad between the sheets and mattress was flipped over and had what looked like a fresh, orange vomit stain on it, the walls were filthy, and the carpet looked like a petting zoo had lived there. Out dated, all but one piece of furniture on balcony was broken. Elevators were gross all day, everyday and the fans...

This was our first time renting thru VRBO. The unit was dirty when we walked in stains on the comforter. Bunk Bed top bunk creaked loudly whenever moved on it or touched. Which caused us to use the pullout, not part of our plan. It was uncomfortable. The couch had stains. Only 4 bath towels, 2 hand towel and 2...

We had a Very Nice Stay while staying at Emerald Beach Resort. We stayed from Wednesday, July 2nd until Sunday, July 6th 2014. We actually rented from an individual that owned his own unit. We found the location of Emerald Beach Resort just fine and close to a lot of things to do within walking distance. On arrival we could...
