Very nice, very clean condo with a great view of the ocean and a great wide beach.
We’ve stayed in the same condominium every year for the past 15 years. It is like our home away from home. We note changes that the owners have made and enjoy the familiarness of things that are the same.
The screened in porch adds more living space. The pool is great and the landscaping is lovely.
Hopefully we will have many more years at Compass Rose.

Peaceful and enjoyable, but the pool was dirty and could not be used. Even after the pool people came to clean it.

Very nice condo; neat and clean. Well furnished & kitchen nicely stocked. Good bedding. Guest bedrooms had dresser space unlike some other Compass rose condos we've stayed in. Great views of course and not too high to take the stairs.

Over all the property was nice and clean. The description stated 2king beds and 2 sets of bunk beds in third bedroom. Actually had 1 king, 1 queen, 2 twins in 3rd bedroom. The location was great. We could walk to Gulf Stream for dinner and the access to the beach was nice. The living room was large and flowed Nicky into kitchen and dining area. We enjoyed the screened back porch as well.
Love Compass Rose and plan to return for sure.

Loved the rocking chairs on the screened porch. Kitchen is stocked well. Very clean, comfortable beds, and nicely decorated. I would say the only "problem" we encountered was how to work the TV remotes? But we were so busy enjoying the beach and the area that it wasn't important to us. But you may wish to consider leaving some directions.

Our stay at Compass Rose has always been great. We have rented from them about 5 years now. We love it. Very clean and everything there we need.
- RH A. from Concord, Posted: 10/04/2021
Always a great stay in this condo only issue we had this stay was the smoking at the pool and in another unit on the balcony.Suppose to be smoke free building.Just hope next year we don't have to smell it. Fist time ever leaving a comment.

Good except elevator stopped working on Friday before we left!
- Anonymous from Concord, Posted: 07/05/2021
We had a great time! Location was perfect, and condo was spacious with enough room for 7 of us. Very clean and comfortable.
Non smoking building but either above or below someone smoked continually.
Renter above had a dog who barked a lot. This renter put the dog in the pool for a swim thinking it was cute. What about health regulations?

Place was what we wanted.

I've stayed at the Compass Rose since Hugo hit and our old school beach house was swallowed by the Atlantic. I was a young boy then. Today I'm 40 and now I bring my family and three kids to the same place that I grew up vacationing in. My entire family would rent 4 or 5 of the 8 units.I've stayed in almost all of them but we keep returning to #22. We absolutely love it. Perfect views from 2nd floor, not to many steps, wonderfully decorated for the beach and just an all around feel that you belong there. It makes me smile knowing that this place is there waiting for us all winter long and the moment we do return it feels as though we never left.
- Barb P. from Loveland, Posted: 07/03/2018
The condos are in a great location. Not too busy and we had lots of room on the beach. The pool is awesome and it was cleaned multiple times while we were there. Nice! Our condo was clean and we had a great view of the ocean. The beds were comfortable and the furniture was clean. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and enjoyed cooking out on the patio grill.
- SUSAN C. from Rock Hill, Posted: 08/01/2017
We have stayed at Compass Rose for 12 years, all but one in #22. We love the screened in porch with rockers, the beautiful pool,and the closeness to the ocean. Even though some things are dated, the owners continue to update other things. You guessed It! We are down for next year!
- Laura R. from Nebo, Posted: 05/08/2017
This Condo was amazing! Beautiful updated interior, clean, extremely well stocked with everything you could possibly need for your vacation. Freshly landscaped exterior with a well maintained pool. The Ocean front views are amazing! Very close to a variety of restaurants and shopping. We honestly had NO complaints! We actually reserved again for next year and we cant wait!
- George and Debbie E. from Johnstown, Posted: 08/16/2016
We were pleased to see the new carpeting and furniture in our condo. Have to say to did seem cleaner this year than in years past BUT more of a cockroach problem than any other year. We enjoy using the outside grill but it is in need of a good cleaning/repair. We will be returning next year...the view is breath taking, we really enjoy the pool and our own private piece of the beach.
- James C. from Canfield, Posted: 07/04/2016
Enjoyed our stay at Compass Rose. The unit was comfortable. The only issue we had was with the pool. The pool was never cleaned throughout the week and it continued to get dirtier and dirtier as the week progressed.
- Gary S. from Verona, Posted: 04/03/2016
Needed a week to just kickback and recharge. Played golf, chartered a fishing boat, target practice at a gun range, and of course long walks on the beach. Good meals, some at restaurants, some off the grill that property provided.
- Brian S. from Owasso, Posted: 11/02/2015
the condo was clean, bright and had everything that we needed to make a great vacation.
- Mark B. from louisville, Posted: 07/13/2015
Great, this is the six time we stay in this condo
- Furman C. from Florence, Posted: 06/22/2015
WE STAY HERE EVERY YEAR
- Amanda & Jason F. from Pennsboro, Posted: 05/25/2015
The condo was nice however it could use some updates. It has an awsome view and a nice pool.
- Mark B. from louisville, Posted: 11/18/2014
Had a great time
- George and Debbie E. from Johnstown, Posted: 08/23/2014
We have stayed in this rental property for the last several years. We love it. Beautiful location and view. Having the pool is a major plus
- SUSAN C. from Rock Hill, Posted: 07/28/2014
We have stayed at Compass Rose for 7 summers. It is our favorite place for many reasons. It has a great screened-in porch view of the beach and beautifully landscaped swimming pool. It is quiet, but at the same time, convenient to attractions, restaurants, and shopping, if that's what you want. My family loves Compass Rose!
- Lisa R. from Canisteo, Posted: 05/05/2014
This was our second year at the property! We love the condo feel to it but really love the fact there are only 8 units and quite private.
- William K. from Troutman, Posted: 09/08/2013
pleasant relaxing enjoyable wish it could have been longer looking forward to next time c r is a great fit for us
- Sheila R. from Florence, Posted: 07/09/2013
The folks from Kentucky, which is what we are known as, have rented CR # 22 for years! Love this unit, love the other vacation people we see each year, love GC and love the setup! Only one thing of improvement - new TVs would be nice. Other than that, this unit is warm, comfortable and welcoming! Already making plans for next year!
These units are 30+ years old and in need of updating. We stayed at Compass Rose when our now 32 and 30 year old children were 2 & 3 years of age. We have wonderful memories of Compass Rose. I would like to suggest that you extend the walk way from the pool our further so you are not having to walk on the soft sand, which in the summer is extremely hot.
- Susan H. from Knoxville, Posted: 10/24/2012
The first unit we were supposed to stay in had a horrible mold and mildew smell. My son has allergies and asthma so I knew this would not be a good week for us if we stayed in the unit originally reserved. My husband who has a terrible sense of smell even said he would not be able to stay in this unit. When I notified Garden City Realty of the problem they were immediately concerned and willing to do whatever it would take to put us in a unit that would not compromise my son's health. I was extremely satisfied with their willingness to help make our week's vacation a very relaxful and happy week for all concerned. What they did not realize is that my son was in a very bad accident on Mother's Day and we almost lost him. Consequently, the vacation we were to have taken in June with my brother's family was unable to take place. After a long, but thankfully good recovery we decided to take his fall break from high school and make our trip to the beach. This was a week we all were VERY MUCH NEEDING!!! Thank-You Garden City Realty Staff for helping us to have a very relaxing trip to the beach!!!

Great condo for my family. Plenty of space and the porch was great. I loved the pool and the private stairs off the porch. Check in and out was very easy. Great price for being off season. Hope to stay there again in the future.
- Bill and Sylvia P. from Taylor, Posted: 09/27/2012
Loved everything about it except I agree with other reviews that the TV definitely needs repolacing with a larger screen. Spent many wonderful hours on the screened porch enjoying the veiw and just hanging out. Kitchen was well stocked with everything. September is a good time to come if you want to avoid the summer tourist crowds.
The pool is small.
- Rick L. from Greenville, Posted: 07/28/2012
The living area could use a larger , updated flat screen TV. The current one is too small and outdated. Compared to others nearby, this rate is at the top as far as the rental rate. I tend to believe this would be a better value in the $2200.00 range.
- SUSAN C. from Rock Hill, Posted: 07/16/2012
Compass Rose has everything that may family and I love! A great view, a beautiful, well-kept pool,and a terrific screened-in porch. We have stayed there for many years and have reserved is for next summer!
- Doyle B. from Canton, Posted: 06/04/2012
Great place to enjoy a quiet vacation. Would like to see a few updates. The cable, coffee pot and living room tv.
- Chris B. from Chapel Hill, Posted: 08/29/2011
This is a very nice place. Bring your entire family!
- Sheila R. from Florence, Posted: 07/11/2011
We stay in this condo every year and love it! We did notice that the exterminator did not show up during the 2 weeks we were there - and do not know if this is why we saw a lot more large water bugs (this is what we call them in Ky.) Thanks!
- Betty B. from Meriden, Posted: 05/09/2011
Very comfortable unit, and a great location! We would definitely stay here again!
