Boardwalk Beach Resort is our happy place and we have stayed in many condo units there. Below are the pros and cons from our stay in the unit.
- can't beat that view!
- overall decor and unit were pretty and reflected what was in photos (large TV was in master unlike what previous review mentioned)
- kitchen had all utensils and pots/bowls that were needed. If you are picky - bring your own.
- newer washer / dryer / microwave / stove
- there is cable and all tvs were a good size
- boardwalk bar crew is always friendly
- fun activities like snow cones, hermit crab races, and live music by the pool / grill were a fun treat!
- owners should definately look into hiring a new housekeeping service. I had read the review before me and walked in knowing I probably had some work to do. I was right. The floors were dirty and the crumbs from the last meal at the table were all over the chairs and barstools. Counters had sand all over them. There was dust EVERYWHERE (see hvac note below) Bathrooms had mildew in the showers. Doors to the balcony had someone else's greasy handprints all over them. I ended up doing a full clean myself upon arrival so we could just relax the rest of the week. Not what I wanted to do for an hour after spending all day in the car to get there.
- kitchen sink had a leak but maintenance came and brought a whole new faucet so that was nice
- AC keeps the unit nice and cold but needs some major maintenance. We had a condensation leak that was in the hallway when we arrived. Maintenance was quick to fix that. There was NOT an air filter so there was large gray dust all in the hvac closet, the door, and blowing out of the vents. I ended up buying a filter because yhe dust seemed to be low priority and not addressed..even after telling multiple people that we had 3 asthmatics staying in the unit. The air vents all have mildew on them so a duct cleaning/ deep clean of the vents wouldn't hurt
- I think the bunk beds need to be tossed out. There was a large hole at the base of the bed where someone just put the board over and that kept falling out. The original support was split in two and a danger if someone sat up too fast. I would suggest wrapping a hand towell or washcloth around it if you have someone sleeping on the bottom bunk.
- duct tape holding the fridge drawers together
I would stay here again if the air conditioner / duct issue is addressed and housekeeping was more efficient.

The Boardwalk Resort and location in general is great. This condo, not so much. While the pictures make it look like it is ready for your family to come in and kick back, it couldn’t have been more deceiving! After we arrived we found the unit was not stocked with basic supplies (i.e. cookware, utensils, kitchen linens, bathroom towels, etc.). After several hours of being in the unit, we discovered that there is a dehumidifier tucked away in the air conditioning closet that requires dumping at least 2 times a day. It was evident that this has not been maintained. We were not made aware of this in any of the booking information. If the dehumidifier isn’t properly dumped water runs under the door and into the hallway, which results in someone slipping. I know, because I am the one who found the water when I fell. The master shower door doesn’t have a seal on the bottom which resulted in the shower leaking every time you get in. The bunk beds had broken slats and broken supports. In general, when you pay for a condo you just assume that everything is in working order and ready for your vacation. Just a warning for other renters, be ready for a disappointment!

We just got home today from staying her for a week. The location was great and we liked the Boardwalk (we have stayed here several times before) but this until has not been kept up. We paid A LOT of money to stay here and the dishwasher was falling apart, there was a bucket under the bathroom sink to catch water, the fridge drawers had duck tape on them, some of the kitchen drawers didn't open all the way, and the faucet in the kitchen was broken. We were very disappointed in the condition of the unit. We would not stay here again.

The room was nice but I do feel like it needs some fixing up. First off when we arrived after being on the road for over 12 hours we arrived at 530pm and check in time was 4. We arrived with our housekeepers still in the condo. I wasn't very happy with that. I'm glad we didn't arrive at 4 or we would have had to wait over an hour for a somewhat clean place. After they finally left. They didn't leave any garbage bags in any of the trash bins. Kitchen and both bathrooms had nothing. We didn't have hand soap to at least get us by before we made it to the store, they don't leave anything but a tiny pod for dishwasher and laundry. So plan to buy everything. The master bedroom does not have a large TV like pictured, the bunk bed room is very poor. There were I believe 4 holes in the walls and in the beds, there was cardboard holding top bunk, the kitchen is beautiful but there not much to cook with, no salt, pepper, or anything like that for cooking so you have to literally buy everything and the refrigerator has ducktape holding it together, there was dirt on the walls, floors weren't mopped or swept before we arrived, my parents didn't think there bed sheets were clean so they immediately had to throw them in washer. I think the owners need a new housekeeper and if they would put a little money into keeping the place nice and up to date that the place would be well worth the money we paid, but with the way everything was I don't believe it was worth the money we paid for a week.. like I said condo is nice and the view is amazing as always and I loved how they had the tiki bar right outside where pool is that was great but the condo needs some fixing up and a good clean. Otherwise we did enjoy our stay.. one more thing is if you plan to night walk on the beach be careful because we went and there were so many young kids partying in groups and we had our drinks and football stolen from beach. It's not very family oriented at night.

We took our couples beach trip and this was our first time staying at the Boardwalk Beach Resort in PCB. I loved the space in the condo it definitely had enough room for all of us. Although I will say this condo needs updating, once we got into the condo the ac did not work, luckily we called and they fixed it as soon as possible. There were a couple of things falling apart such as the kitchen table, kitchen drawers and kitchen sink. Overall we were pleased with our stay.

Could use a good deep cleaning and there were not enough blankets or pillowcases in the unit. We inquired about blankets before we arrived as the pictures showed none on the bunks, we were told there should be some when we arrive but there weren’t any for the bunks or pull out couch. We had to call numerous times for blankets, it took 2 days to get some. I would have thought they would check on it before we arrived to be sure, but they didn’t. The property management company didn’t respond to our other inquiries we had about the fitness center or beach service. We emailed twice about both, never got any response. They also don’t seem to have help available after hours and even during hours we had to leave messages on voicemail. Being in the hospitality industry for vacation rentals, this was surprising. It is a beautiful property, but the condo owner should be concerned about the management company and the cleaning company.

Spacious, very easy check-in, great location, best fish tacos on the trip at the Boardwalk Bar. Some amenities that we would have liked to have or have known to being, beach chairs, toilet paper, paper towels and garbage bags.

Easy place to stay and relax on the beach. Great building. Easy check in. Our room was ready a bit late. The cleaners weren’t done but it was March break so it was busy. The sliding door in the main room needs sealed. The water in a big storm started leaking into the master bedroom. The kitchen was a bit beat up but over all an easy stay and a great location

The property manager was very unhelpful.
The vacation rental was very dirty.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
This condo was very dirty the rug we removed in the master bedroom was filthy. Full of sand the floor in this place have never been cleaned. I have pictures to substantiate all of this. I would not recommend this place. The guestroom mattress did not have a mattress cover? The twin beds someone had threw up on the mattress covers. I cannot even begin to tell you about the let out sofa. We removed the cover and wash it. The toilets all had rust stains. This is the dirty place the mattress in the master bedroom was like sleeping on a soft pillow. The hold place smelled has never been clean thoroughly. If you are thinking of renting this place get a room at the motel 6.
