We stayed at this condo for 4 months. There are a number of pros and cons.
Pros: The rental agency is great to deal with and any issues are addressed immediately. The patio is very nice, with lounge chairs, plus a table and chairs. The view is spectacular. The suite is large so lots of room, nice kitchen, dining room and living room areas. The bedrooms are also nice. There were only two of us so it was more space than we needed, but when friends were over we had lots of room. It was great having in suite laundry. The grounds are kept nice, and the pool is great to cool off and sit to meet the neighbours. The condo is close to everything in the west end and if it were not for the issues mentioned next would be a great location to be in. The Cons: The hills. You have two large hills to climb to get to the property. It is not an easy climb, we rented a car so not so bad, others in the complex that didn’t would be exhausted by the time they made it to the condo building. Once at the building you have another 66 steps to climb to get to the condo itself. When carrying anything it was a nightmare. The condo itself is dated, the furniture is old, the couch although large was uncomfortable and the cushions were ripped. For a suite this size the tv was very small. Many of the walls the concrete was corroding and we were constantly having to sweep it up. Many of the windows and walls leaked leaving water stains down the wall and ceiling. Some of the windows couldn’t be opened and those that did had no screens. The window coverings were falling apart. The bedroom patio door window covering did not cover the whole window and were not room darkening which can be an issue when the sun rises early or at night for privacy. The living room patio door had no curtains at all another issue when you are trying to keep the heat out or at night you again have no privacy. The whole suite needs painting. Fortunately most of our time at the condo was spent on the patio or around the pool. For the cost I would have expected more.
We had a wonderful stay! This condo has everything you need and more! There is a big hill to climb to get to the condo but the privacy and views make it worth it! This was the 2nd time we stayed at this property, great value!
