"Have stayed at Monterey Condos several times. Gulf front location is excellent! The owner of this particular unit (C301) has upgraded each of the bathrooms. The master bathtub and shower upgrade is substantial.
Other upgrades as well! Unit could use other upgrades from rental "wear and tear" such as cushions and pillows on furniture. In summary, one of the better units at Monterey!"

"This was our fourth year of visiting the Monteray property. The first time renting this condo from Benchmark Properties. We stay for 4 weeks every year and love the property. But, have always used 30A Escapes.
Dealing with a multitude of maintenance issues along with the fact that there is no weekly cleaning service available for long term rentals had a negative impact on our stay.
When calling the management company we were left on hold then transferred to voicemail with a message saying that hanging up and calling back only delays a response. We left numerous messages taking away precious time from our Survivors and Thrivers time together.
Our kitchen sink was leaking and it took a day and a half for a response. Our fireplace smelled like gas and the person who came to fix the sink turned off the pilot light and let us know we shouldn't use the fireplace anyway. Our internet was out for a day and a half causing us to lose one full day of use of our condo. We had to find a coffee shop in order to conduct business on a very rainy day. Many of the maintenance issues we experienced were mentioned in previous reviews from 2023 guests. All with a response that it would be taken care of by the management company. Our feet were black from the old worn dirty area rugs. No hangers in the closets so we had to purchase our own hangers. Cleaning supplies enough for our 4 week stay were not available. We had to purchase our cleaning supplies in order to keep the floor and bathrooms clean. There is a very thin blanket on each bed. We called for additional blankets and had to purchase our own. Lights on the balcony hanging by a wire and don't work. Master bathroom door sticks open and can't be closed. There is no chest of drawers in the master and nowhere to put folded clothing. All of these items were mentioned in reviews by previous renters.
Some of the stovetop burners didn't work and the blender shot sparks out the bottom when we tried to use it. Dissapointe"

"The view and location were excellent. The condo was decorated very tastefully and was lovely with the exception of no chest of drawers or dresser in primary suite. There were no directions on how to operate the tv which took us considerable time to figure out. That would be extremely helpful, if directions were provided. Only major complaint were the cleanliness of the floors. They appeared clean, but our feet turned black from walking on them and when we wiped a spill up on the kitchen floor, the paper towel was black. We did enjoy the balcony although cushions in the outdoor chairs would have been appreciated."

"Location is amazing... close to the restaurants and shops. We literally fell out of bed and on to the beach. The unit offers great amenities, was mostly clean (found a couple of cups dirty in the cabinet). Lights on the balcony didn’t work, made it difficult to enjoy nights. Horrible experience with Vacayzen and our bike rentals. Found out last day the this unit owner Pre-rented Beach Chairs from Jakes for anyone who rents their unit... would have been nice to have been told. Will rent again... will get bikes elsewhere (you should consider a different vendor than Vacayzen."

"Condo Complex in great area with nice views. Unit has been updated nicely and is light and bright. Small quiet complex with small pool. New to rental program and it shows. I would recommend if some attention and enhancements made.

The following are issues I contacted Benchmark Management Company about via email and never received a reply. Here are a few improvements to make it 5 star worthy for future paying guests.
1. Owners
King bedroom by the kitchen needs two bedside tables not just one and a chest of drawers so paying guests don’t have to live out of suitcase.

2. Cleaning service
Kitchen Countertop dirty. Every pan or bowl we took out of a cupboard was sitting in half inch of water. This may be a dishwasher issue. We wiped down everything that came out of dishwasher as everything was wet. Many of the glasses in cupboard covered in dust and sheet pans filthy. Cupboard above microwave has 5 bags of opened chips and snacks.

Cleaning service should wipe down outdoor furniture. They were sticky and super dirty and mold spots. We cleaned them. Also door outside to balcony covered in black spots (mold?).

3. Benchmark Management Company
Organize kitchen cabinets so there is one cabinet for paying guest to store pantry items.

Provide paying guests a few carts at parking lot level when guests arrive to bring in groceries etc. This is common at many complexes we have rented from in the past. We had to make 4 trips up and down elevator upon checking in.

Reservations says to call at 2 and if unit is ready and "checks" have been done, renter can proceed to unit. This is NOT true. When I called, they said even if it is ready they have a hard line check in for 4pm and the code is on a timer.
