We almost didn't rent the condo at the Waves because of the reviews but I am glad we did! The room{305} was spacious and very clean. It was comfortable and had everything that a family could need for a vacation. Comfortable beds and a washer and dryer in the condo! Karen at Choice Rentals was wonderful to deal with also!...

Not too different from what we expected. We were disappointed because the amenities listed a fitness center, which was a deciding factor in our booking this place, however there is no fitness center. The pool bottom is sandy because people don't shower before going in after the beach. The unit we rented was mostly clean, except for some sticky countertops...

However 107 was missing chairs no dvd player or vcr no vacuum cleaner. Leaked water in laundry room and master bath. Believe its coming...

All the walls were marked,...

This is our 3rd stay at the Waves. They accept pets. Our first 2 stays were great. The room we had this time was sub par. The owner of this condo #401 has no pride of ownership. Screens in windows were rotted in the frames, ice maker didn't work, stove wasn't fully functional. Old washer with an extremely small drum....

Stay away from "The Waves, The San Tropez" and any other East Coast Management property. As stated in other reviews, East Coast Management will gladly accept your rent and security deposit and FIND a way to evict high school students from their properties and keep your rent and security deposit.
