Thank you again.
First off, we are not the type of people looking for a 4star place on a beer budget, then trash the accommodations on trip advisor because a lamp was out or the water tasted funny. Most the Condos we stay at are moderately to higher priced and you can always find something to complain about. This was not the case with Eaton Manor. First the positive….Location is across from Smathers beach, gated and excellent security throughout the grounds. Parking is covered right underneath the room. The entire complex is clean and very well maintained. The pool is clean, heated, and never very crowded. The local residents are very friendly and make you feel quite welcome. As far as the room, the microwave and stove are new and of high quality. The couches are ok. The TV is large and works well. Now the negative. The description on Trip Advisor is misleading saying it is a “15 min walk or 10 min bike ride to Duvall st. Well, it is actually a 15 min drive by car to Duvall. Based on their description we didn’t have plans to rent a car but after we realized how far we were, I had to get a cab back to the airport to rent a car for the week….an added expense. As far as the room, I first noticed the lamps didn’t work because they were not plugged in. I went to plug in one, the cover was off, the outlet was loose and it sparked and popped really loud. The Master bedroom door sticks so badly my 11 yr old got stuck and I had to get him out. TV in 2ond bedroom doesn’t come on at all and alarm clock doesn’t work. As for the other electronics, the Comcast box menu didn’t work most of the time and I didn’t have an opportunity to use the VCR because I haven't used a VCR in about 8 YEARS. I guess I could have always read the stack of magazines from 2008, but I already read them in 2008. 1 half of the blinds don’t pull shut and the refrigerator outside on the balcony doesn’t work and has mold on the inside….another safety issue. Wicker on the coffee table coming apart, Food (eggs???) stuck to the plates and we had to rewash plates and dishes before we could use. There is a stack of 5 or 6 tiles between the refrigerator and cabinet where there is a large gap and the other large gap where the dishwasher was installed without spacer, they have stuffed garbage bags( so you don’t notice the large gap??). There is a large stack of misc bedding and construction materials in the second bedroom closet and the bedding and towels appear to be a collection of many colors of leftovers from previous guests…kinda like the leftover food in the kitchen cabinets. I can understand the rust on top of the dryer but the lack of heat and holes in the filter (another safety issue as lint accumulates in the exhaust) were unacceptable. I’m not normally a complainer and would never post negative comments if it were just a couple of issues, but with the safety issues the owners need to make a trip to actually look at this place. I own rental property and if this was mine, I would be ashamed to actually take money from guests to stay here. Great location and complex….wrong unit! Read the guest books comments- they agreed!
It was a great vacation. We did not rent a car so we did a lot of walking. It is about 2 miles to Duval st. We would walk to Duval in the morning and spend the day eating, drinking, and listening to some really good music. We would cab it home. The pool area at the condo was really nice and there is a huge hot tub. One really noteable thing is how helpful and friendly the full time residents are.
