The location would be hard to beat. Watching the stunning sunsets from the 2nd floor balcony was breathtaking.
However, this poor old house is in serious need of some love and attention. Just clearing the closets of all the old broken ornaments, pieces of broken furniture, old animal cages, old bedding, cushions, plastic plants would make a huge difference. The furniture on the balconies is old and stained. I had to sweep, clean and arrange the furniture to make the balconies comfortable. I had to rearrange the closets by moving and stacking all the ‘junk’ to one side before we could unpack – the closets are so full and cluttered with the owners life possessions, there was little room for our things. The microwave was literally in pieces – 2 panels had come off and were just shoved by the side. I found a dirty stained pair of boxer shorts shoved down by the side of one of the twin beds when I was cleaning. The telephone and wifi went down almost on a daily basis.
Despite the general dilapidation of this property, we had a fabulous time on AMI, and will definitely return – just not to Coquina Breeze.
What a shame, because with some care and attention, a thorough clean, some essential maintenance and replacing old worn furniture and fittings, this house would be a gem.
It makes me wary of booking with Anna Maria Vacations again if this is an example of the property they rent.
