I had a wonderful experience at the condo. The only things I did not like was the limit on the time that children can be in the pool. The Children could only be in the pool from 11am to 1pm and then … More
Yes, renters like to have the key to be accessed easier. Our years of concern is that if our staff can meet the renter than there will be more personal communication and the future possibility of problems can be avoided. For example, years ago someone rented our condo for 7 people and they brought 40 people into our condo for seven days which caused very serious problems to everyone. This could have been avoided if the keys were handed by a person. So, now we prefer to hand the keys to the renters.
The swimming pool rules are made by our conservative association. I have younger kids who wished to be in the pool most of the time, but we have to follow the rules.
We are glad that the renters having wonderful time in our condo and enjoying the beach and the village which are all in short walking distance.
