We just returned from the Gulf Strand and had a rather unfortunate experience. We originally booked unit #504 but were BUMPED to unit #203 because the owners decided to visit at the same time as our booking. Despite the unit booked appearing to be nicely tiled & updated the nasty non-updated unit 203 was considered "comparable"....PAALEESE, the carpet was stained & soiled, the bathrooms were slimy with years of built-up scum (YUK!), the unit was filled with dusty dirty junk (chotchkies) which took up what little space there was...we had to move stuff into the closets just to keep from bumping into things. We were informed that the owner is embarrassed about the lack of updates & the nasty carpet but the facility stays so booked up they just can't get in there to get the work done. I say, "NO WAY"!! During our week stay it did not appear all units were booked & why in the world would you not just close this unit to bookings & get the job done??? We found this to be a totally unfair "trade".
Also note the facility is next to the public beach access with people walking right next to your window/balcony...noisy & nosey people. Every morning at 6:00 am a worker would literally drag the trash containers across the parking lot making a grating noise. I wouldn't recommend this facility unless you are guaranteed the unit you book & you stay above the third floor for privacy sake.
