    When we arrived the air conditioner didn't work. Spent all day Saturday sitting in room while repairman replaced air condtioner. Tuesday cable box failed. I called office and reported it. No one ever came. Took box out of bedroom and put it in living room.

    Spent a week at IWW-371. Two adults, two teenagers. Great location, condo decorated nicely. We enjoyed our stay & are thankful to the owners for providing such a nice place. The only "wish" we had was a hot tub. Would have been a nice addition...More

    I understand that check-in isn't until 4pm. If we arrive earlier and the condo has been cleaned, can we check-in earlier? If not, will we be allowed access to the pool and beach until check-in time?
