This photo says it all – a vacation is so much more fun when you rent a condo or house from Global Resort Homes!
This is the 2nd part in my 3 part review of Global Resort Homes. If you missed it, part one can be found HERE. In my first part I summarized why staying in a condo was much more enjoyable for me than staying in a hotel room. I had hardly any photos and asked for some questions. This part of the review will answer the questions and show you a peek into my condo.
Professional photos of the condos and houses can be seen on the Global Resort Homes website.
The kitchen is beautiful! Yes, it was on the smaller side, but what do you expect from a condo? It was still larger by a landslide than any “kitchenette” you will find in a hotel suite. I loved the stainless steel appliances – they kicked my kitchen’s butt! Global Resort Homes made sure to stock the kitchen with any appliance you might need – blender, toaster, coffee maker. And it came filled with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, towels and even dishwasher detergent. I enjoyed buying breakfast food and eating a healthy breakfast the way I like it, not having to deal with what some hotels call “breakfast.”
Look!! I could have traveled with my cloth diapers – free washer and dryer! I think I was more excited about this than any other feature of the condo. Seriously – and they even included a sample of detergent. Not that you would need it – there is a Publix grocery store right behind the condo.
The table was all beautifully set and waiting for me as I entered the condo. I don’t even set my table this nice at home. And I love the arches – they reminded me of home since I have lots of arches in my living room too. I suppose if you have 6 adults staying in the condo you can’t all sit down and eat at the table together, but there is a wonderful living room behind me with a very large coffee table, so no worries!
And the view from the balcony. Palm trees and a sunset, breathtaking. My father in law enjoys waking up super early and sitting outside at home to have his devotion time with God. He hasn’t been doing that lately because of the freezing temps and he was so happy to be able to do it here in Florida. He told me it was really relaxing to just sit out there and listen to the hum of cars on the highway. “It is a constant hum, almost melodic,” he said. Definitely a change from the crickets and birds you hear on our porch in Kansas!
Not pictured: The bedroom with 2 twin beds, father in law’s bedroom with 1 full bed, the full bathroom and master bathroom. But they were all decorated warmly and very inviting.
Now for the questions:
Eve wanted to know if it was stocked with books and things.
Nope! It had all the essentials – hair dryer, iron, tvs in every bedroom and free internet. But no books or movies.
Tammy asked if there was a deposit.
Tara from Global Resort Homes answered that one in the original post, and the answer was “not a security deposit.” There is a deposit required but it goes to the total for your room, it isn’t a non-refundable security deposit like in other places.
Part 3 is coming! If you have any other questions please leave them here and I will get them answered in part 3. Part 3 will be more just information about Global Resort Homes and how you can book your next stay. They have so much more than 3 bedroom condos!
