I stayed in Unit 1302 of the Plantation and found it very poorly equipped. I had rented from the owner on VRBO and went by the photos on that website. A couple of pieces of furniture shown in the photos were not present when I checked in. Also, the kitchen was poorly equipped for anything more than a weekend stay and the oven badly needed cleaning. I had to move a shelf unit in order to operate the thermostat. The screen door to the porch was constantly coming off the track. The bedroom, which is small to begin with, was too crowded with a large wooden bed that had a footboard I kept bumping into. The TV was old with poor sound quality.
Also, the elevator to this 3rd floor unit was scheduled to be replaced during my stay, which the owners knew of in advance, yet that was not communicated to me before I arrived. I would have liked to know about the elevator as I have health problems that make it hard for me to climb stairs. The phone was totally non-operational for more than 2 weeks and the wi-fi internet is spotty.
Because of the above-mentioned problems, I don’t feel I got what I paid for . On the plus side, it does have a wonderful view of the Gulf.
