Needs work :-(
The good first: location, of course. The manager was responsive, when we said there was only one beach chair and two of us; his wife brought one over and left for us. The arrival instructions were easy. The size of the apartment was about what we expected.
We are not complainers and are normally pretty low maintenance, but, yeah, I'm afraid that we won't come back to this condo.
The bad: the bed is awful, as is the couch - not really a comfortable place to sit anywhere. My husband left there with some terrible back pain. And get some newer bedding, too, please - that would be fine for your own at home, but when people are paying to rent, it needs to be nicer.
As has been mentioned by other reviewers, the TV doesn't work. Luckily the wifi did and we had our tablet with us. But either don't pretend that it DOES work or fix it.
The place was reasonably clean, but really, could have been cleaner. I don't see what was "new" about it, really. The kitchen had just barely enough dishes etc for a couple, nothing extra.
Oh, and the front door? We have a digital lock at home that locks behind us automatically. We didn't realize until a couple of days in that we needed to push the lock button on this one to make that happen (and no instructions anywhere).
We have stayed in other condos at Sapphire and they were so much nicer than this one. Next time we'll work harder to seek one of those out.
Great location, but needs updating
Great location and the view is fabulous. Street level entry is a plus. Clean.
Now the downfall is that it needs updating. Entrance door is hard to open. Bed too soft. Found ourselves rolling to the middle. Also really wanted to unwind at night and watch TV. TV does not work. We were told something about a roof issue and just occurred a few days ago, but when you look at the reviews it appears there is never a TV.
The Slice restaurant is convenient but the service was awful, and the food was only OK.
Back on the positive side, Red Hook is close and had lots of great bars and options.
Not sparkling clean .. bathroom could have used a little elbow grease cleaning . No instructions for Tv as there were 4 remotes and unable to get any local Tv or Dish . Ended up watching some DVDs that were provided .
Location, location, location
Good place to stay for the location! The unit had everything we needed to enjoy our getaway with a fully stocked kitchen, cooler, chairs, towels, and pool noodles.
The TV did not have cable, but made up for the strong WiFi that reached to the pool! We did call Alex about the TV not working which was a known issue to him before our arrival because there was a new Google TV. The unit had a dvd selection and the lobby has even more to choose from.
Alex’s unit has free parking and entry level entrance which makes it easy to carry your vacation necessities in and out of the unit.
The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The view outside the balcony was beautiful!!! The location was pretty great too. We originally rented a car and when we got the airport all the cars were gone. The condo’s location was a couple minutes drive to Redhook and the St John Ferry. It’s very easy to catch the $1 safari/taxi into town from the condo. You do have to walk up a hill from the condo to get to the “bus stop”. It’s about a 5 minute walk so keep that in mind if your unable to do so. Also when returning to the condo keep in mind the $1 safari only goes one way around the island, so you’ll want to taxi back to your condo otherwise you’ll be on the safari for a long time. The taxi home costs about $5 per person. The beach is another walk down hill and there’s a new beach bar with lots of drinks, music, and food. I personally did not enjoy the food at the Slice, which is located at the bottom of the condo, but the beach bar’s food was very enjoyable. The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars is because the mattress and pillows were very old, hard, and worn. After a long day of hiking, swimming, and snorkeling it would of been nice to sleep on something better. I do understand that it is an island and resources are limited, but at least some new pillows with some sort of fluff would be nice. And in the long run hopefully they can order a new mattress. I’m not sure if amazon delivers there but Zenus’s mattresses are comfortable and very affordable off Amazon. I was very happy to return home to my memory foam mattress. Other than that the place was great!
Amazing location, & view. Room was perfect as well. Had such a great time
