Very quiet rental! Spacious with a complete kitchen. A mix up in the reservation sent us to a different unit than we originally planned. Same location but no view at all and no grab bars in the bathroom. It was difficult for our disabled friends. Unable to make the tv or fireplace work and cell service is spotty so unable to contact owner for assistance. A nice place overall but not quite the weekend we had planned.
Unfortunately I had to rate this with only 2 stars. From the time we arrived we were met with unexpected surprises.
A) the key com we were provided to access the facility was incorrect. Luckily after multiple phone calls we were able to get a hold of one of the board members for the complex to provide us with the correct one. This was a very stressful beginning to this portion of our trip.
B) The bedrooms have little to no airflow. As explained in the description of the rental there is not any airconditioning. However, what I was not expecting was the lack of total airflow into both bedrooms. There are Windows; however the Windows face the community hallway and do not have screens, which to me is a safety and security issue. It didn't matter the Windows were there anyway since the halls were just as hot and stuffy as the bedrooms. We attempted to put floor fans from the window facing the outside in the living rooms and force that down the hall- we were still stifling all night long.
The pros to this complex are:
A) easy access to beach- just a hop-skip-jump
B) would be okay for winter/fall/spring stay.
C) somewhat updated throughout
D) partial views of the ocean
E) able to hear ocean from front room
Tips if you stay here:
A) search out the floor fans in each bedroom closet
B) the lighting is dim in bedrooms, switch for the fan and lights are fastest/brightest ad (1) and get slower/dimmer as you go from 1-3.
What a wonderful place to stay. The owner gave all the information we needed before we arrived. The condo was decorated so nicely, and everything was updated and newer. What a treat to wake up and be able to open the windows and hear the ocean not to mention look out the huge windows and see the ocean. If we ever stay in Roackaway again we would definitely stay here again.
