    Worst managment company and board

    Run don't walk to the nearest exit this building is ruined by multiple incompetant boards and a real evil managment they will bankrupt all of you with $4.0 million in assessment on 65 units. Almost half the building is not paying assessments. They are giving them away now.

    buyers beware!

    This building is a well-known money pit. The board is corrupt and has made 2 million dollars disappear in the last two years with absolutely no accountability as to where the money has gone. Dume Deck recently assessed residents $30,000.00 in the last three months and they expect payment immediately. The manager is absolute scum and legendary up and down the strip for her rudeness and incompetence. No one is paying assessments and no one is able to sell except at a pittance-word is out that Dune Deck is poison. Enter at your own risk.

    RUN

    OMG they just doiubled our assessments to $24,000 for one year. there is $30,000 in assessments on each unit due january 2012. I wish i had sold two years ago instead of renting it out. Now I am sunk like others and will let the bank take it. 2/3 of the owners said screw this and are not paying a thing. The CAM is a witch. The board is nasty and rude and will not tell you a thing. They have a bunch of alcoholic idiots running the place. Morons.

    wish we could rate it a zero

    $5000 due last november, $5000 due now, increased quarterly by $2000 to $20,000 for the year for what? An board that runs it into the ground and refuses to show any receipts for the last three years. Someone needs to ask the past boards where the money went like into personal storm windows, trips, meals, lighting and computers that was supposed to go for construction. They "spent" 1.5 million with no evidence of where it went. The bank called the loan in so all units now owe $23K or more immediately. Run is not the word for this craphole.

    A good place to live

    I have lived in Dune Deck condominium since 1983. My husband and I find this to be an ideal location to enjoy the beach, restaurants within walking distance and a safe town in which to live. The building is going through some financial challenges at the moment but most of those are caused by lack of attention to serious maintenance over many years. Now just happens to be the time when repairs cannot wait any longer. One cannot expect to live so close to the ocean and not have some financial obligations to maintain the building. As soon as we are over this "hurdle" everyone who appreciates beach-front living will continue to be grateful for this home. As with any 65-unit community, we have a few unpleasant persons living here, but most residents and renters are friendly, kind and courteous, and we enjoy their company.

    Way above average in an area with great buildings

    New board of directors positioned to move build into recovering its past reputation of grander. Excellent beach, snorkeling, kayaking, surfing, super pool, exercise room and jacuzzi. Will be major repair work next couple years so excellent investment opportunity.<br/><br/>I have lived in this building since 1983 and have looked at dozens of alternatives and Dune Deck still comes out on top over all.<br/><br/>Sad to have seen several comments by anonymous obviously disgruntled people. Most likely people who made poor investment judgements and blame others. Their crude signature references reflect the quality of these commenters. I use my name. I'm not ashamed of my comments. <br/>I would like to encourage Condo.com to reject ratings by fictitious reviewers.

    Excellent ocean-front location

    We bought our condo about a year ago and we are happy to live in Dune Deck. We hear old histories how things have been managed before - some necessary repairs have been undone and now with reasonable assessment they will be accomplished. So that has to be done like in all seaside condominium associations. Present board is unanimous with things that have to be done. We enjoy every day of living in Dune Deck.<br/>Sirkka Liisa Reis and Pekka Nikkanen, Dune Deckers

    Nightmare

    Honest reviewers are afraid to list real names here we are dealing with serious evil in this building. check with all sources to see that five have liens on their units for nonpayments and five are in foreclosure and a few now bank owned. That is over 10% of the building in default. Underwater takes on new meaning when the ones who are in charge spend like there is no tomorrow. For a building of 65 units with quaretly maintenance at $20,000 you should be living on Rodeo Drive not in some DIVE in South Palm Beach. Face some hard facts here it will take years to recover from all the damage that is not weather related here. There has been a serious breach in finances and what is going on is more than absurd. When Mr. Harrison feels the need to bring in a cop off duty to quell reident questions it is almost as bad as when the former NY crime family board that was running things. They were trying to take everything to NY so that no one could ever have a say in where the money went and they never explained where 2 million went. The honest people here had to start a recall to stop them. You would have to have a serious hole in your head to buy here. The only lapse in judgement here was in buying from Ada at Hampton. She will do anything to sell and her game is to talk at least one client into being over priced so the rest look like bargains. We are renting it out now in disgust for the behavior of those in charge and the sleezy element of bed hopping going on here. Personaly I would not use the sauna since it is more than likely that some may have disease from their immoral behavior and who needs to take that chance. Wish we could sell but no one has sold in months. We would lose too much money and are going under while they assess us $5000 more every few months. I think someone needs to look into the finances here. Wish we had bought in CA as we had originaly planned.

    Life in the commune at Dune Deck

    Gee ban fee speech now. A cop attending meetings is not enough to silence residents from asking questions now you want to silence free speech on the internet. They hired a managment team with a hag that runs the building and interferes with everything. She has become a legend in town for her stupidity. The only bad investment is that the crooks keep getting on the boards. No matter how much you purge they keep getting back in. Feces really does float to the top. It also helps to set yourself up for a come back after a recall by having Julia in your back pocket the whole time, run a mindless old moron who will do anything to be popular, an egoist who you know will drop out of office and then Charles. Cant figure what part he played but even Charles realizes this place is going down hill and will bankrupt everyone and is trying to sell. Sorry you cant silence the world and you cant always have the Mrs write your speeches. Might as well just kick back and drink your Vodka. <br/><br/>If the theives would leave this place might have a chance but who is going to buy in a building with over 10% in arrears, bankruptcy or liens? Who wants to pay $20K a year for maintenance? The crooks in charge want more money for more needless repairs. Balconies costing 100K to replace has the whole street laughting. Now those same balconies are falling apart. When was the last time anything sold in this building? The last few that were lucky enough to get out gave them away. This building has more than just challenges and more than problems from the sea. Greed runs the place and like fungus it just keeps growing. <br/><br/>Sorry but you cant silence free speech and this is what life is really like down on the dictatorial commune.

    Nice building/great location

    <br/> My husband and I bought our condo after looking at numerous buildings and found Dune Deck to be the nicest in the area. Consequently, 3 months after buying we found out about major construction costs and although we were disappointed to find out the amount involved and how it was poorly managed at the time. However instead of running, I dug in and put my money where my mouth is and got involved, only to find out that the renovations were seriously needed due to poor maintenance in the past, the equivalent of putting a bandaia on a cancer. In so far as the the financials, mistakes were made and are currently being addressed.<br/><br/> Most of our neighbors are friendly and kind human beings, as in any building there will always be the malcontents, along with a few who bought in over their head, and shame on them for not foreseeing expenses involved with living on the water. Shame on those who write reviews under ficticious names because they don't have the courage of their convictions. Shame on the few who refuse to pay their fair share, and expect to be treated with respect while being floated financially!! Shame on those who have lowered themselves to malicious gossip and posted it here!!!<br/><br/> I love having a condo directly on the ocean and understand the priviledge comes with a price, we have made some lovely friends here and hope to enjoy our time in the future. To those who are unhappy I can only say you have a choice, and far be it from me to stop you from being unhappy, by all means sell and make us all happy, because this building is no longer going to feel sorry anyone.<br/>We now have a strong and cohesive board with no hidden agendas. Our goal is to maitain it to the best of the assoc. interests, protect our investments and enjoy our homes.<br/><br/> I thank my current co-board members for their commitment to our success!!!!!<br/><br/>

    We love it here.

    Jim and I love living at Dune Deck. Every time we walk through our door, we say we are so glad to be home. The floor plans are great. The closets and storage areas are spacious. Our washer and dryer are within our condo. AND the view!!! It is quiet. There are young and old couples. We have good friends here. We have a new compatible board of directors who are making the necessary improvements not just putting a bandage on items that need surgery.<br/><br/>Like every condominium along this strip, there are malcontents who have been writing letters to this column with fictitious names. If they are that unhappy, they should move elsewhere. They should also have the conviction of their statements and sign their name to any communication they write. I learned in grade school that one always signs their name or don't write it.<br/><br/>-- <br/>Betty Aspasia Veras #508<br/>

    http://thecoastalstar.ning.com/profiles/blogs/homes-with-a-view-on-a-budget-about-40-000<br/><br/>Read the reviews looks like this dung heap is in for more money wasted. I think Fifty-thousand on improvements means there is serious problems in the building or something is seriously wrong with the people who govern. Many are walking away even the agent who quotes they are. He is one of them and has two going down the toilet. If you want to throw good money after bad this is the place to be.<br/><br/><br/>My mama taught me that if you face the world you should make it your real face not a plasticized one. This is a free world and we can sign any name we want. My nane is on the deed and since your is not there is not much more to say about a transient making coments.

    Still malcontented

    "For example, unit No. 109 at the Dune Deck, 3610 S. Ocean, is a short sale, with an asking price of $99,000. There are issues, says listing agent Roger Basso with Jeffrey Ray & Associates. A $1.5 million loan to make repairs — some of them structural — is in the process of being paid off, costing each unit’s owner around $18,000 to $25,000 depending on square footage. An additional $1.6 million assessment needed for more structural repairs is, as of this writing, under discussion. <br/> “Some owners are walking away and there are foreclosures in that building,” he said."<br/><br/>The author of that comment has one of those foreclosures on him. There must be a severe problem in the building for him to mention it.<br/><br/>$1.6 million on top of $1.5 million would make owners indebted for between $36,000 to<br/> $50,000 in special assessments per unit. $20,000 in quarterly maintenance is also the current figure.<br/><br/>The board consisting of Mr Harrison spent a whopping $125,000 per balcony to revamp and they are beinging to crackle after only three years. This lead to $1.5 million being spent without sufficient explanation. All records were destroyed so it is easy to claim ignorance.<br/><br/>Financial problems do not begin to cover where his board and the next one and this new board are spending all of this money. They hold meetings with an off duty cop. What are they afraid of that they need to do this. Honesty does not exist without proof and they refuse to provide any. The bully that<br/>runs the office makes sure no one gets information. Slamming doors in faces seems to be board approved behavior.<br/><br/>A bunch of malcontents? Is that why 36 signed a recall petition? Is that why a whopping majority signed and wanted Harrison off the first board? He stepped down and now is back on. Do you honestly think any of us malcontents want<br/>you to know who we are? You have got to be kidding.<br/><br/>The following ten units are currently up for sale: 102, 409, 606, 101, 406, 610, 506, 604, 202, 504.<br/>The following units tried to sell but pulled theirs from the market due to very high quarterly maintenance assessments, a $5000 new assessment and the calling of the $1.5 million dollar loanby the bank due to the board defaulting on the terms of the loan making residents owe $18 to $25,000 within a week. Within one week. That is no small bookkeeping error or laspe in business skills. <br/>Those who stopped trying to sell: 109,108, 307, 402, 302, 105 and 410.<br/>Units in foreclosure: 109, 402, 408 and 304<br/>Units with liens on them: 405, 104, 108, 307, 402.<br/>Board member units trying to sell: 506, 504<br/><br/>Ten trying to sell + seven who gav up = 17/65<br/>units with liens/foreclosures= 8/65<br/><br/>Total number of people who want out or are being put into bankruptcy by incompetant boards= 25/65 = 38% of the residents are unhappy want to move or are going broke.<br/><br/>

    Sadly this is not a good place

    The truth of the matter is this place is an awful sad place to live. Tempers are over the top because of what the last two boards and current one are doing to this building and to our pocketbooks. There is no accountability and there is no respect for tennents. They act as if our wallets are as deep as the ocean. Never in my life have I had the displeasure of having to cough up so much money in less than two weeks time because of total incompetance, arrogance, and stupidity of the crooks and ninkompoops in charge. They have fixed elections and tossed out petitions to run so they have complete control of what crooks get to mismanage the money. Someone else used the term evil to descibe their activity. People in charge who monitarily rape their neighbors wallets and feather their own nests wilth the ill gotten gains should all rot in hades. It is too bad what the boards have done to this once nice building. The woman in the office is a brut and impossible to deal with. I also agree and wish we could rate this travesty a zero. I also agree and refuse to let these nasty nasty people who we are. I do not want another cry baby session at my door begging to keep the last crooks in office by the newly returned crook in office. I suppose there are still a lot of secrets to keep. I think it highly fortunate that some parting residents left a group of us with some very interesting information and spread sheets. <br/>

    Beautiful morning at the dune deck condos

    My, my what grumpy people have posted here. They failed to mention so many positive aspects of the Dune Deck. There may have been issues with previous boards and or management, but the new board and manager are working hard to be transparent in their dealings and agressive in tackling the proplems of building maintenance that all buildings of this age encounter. I want to focus on the positive. Location - perfect. Convenient to shopping, restaurants and of course the beach is right here. Great pool, hot tub area. Well equipped excersize room with sauna. Excellent staff! You won't find a condo bulding cleaner. The doormen are always warm and friendly and ready to lend a hand when you need it. I feel safe and secure here! As I get to know the other residents, this is truly feeling like a community. We're not all as grumpy as some of the preivous posts, take a look around... come join us, you'll be glad you did!

    This place is the armpit of south palm beach

    Amenities: none it costs you 22,000 a year maintenance fees. Manager is rude and board is nontransparent in spending. Mistakes in the past have come back to roost in new board. They are ruining the building and our wallets. Many seniors cannot afford this place.<br/>Location: On the water the sea wall is crumbling and they are not addressing that. The county does not allow the beach to be rebuilt and in the last five years we have lost over 25 feet of beach. Unless something is done this builing will be underwater for real in a few years.<br/>Price: droping as we speak due to assessments in the straosphere. Talking about assessing another $1.6 million for only 28 who are paying out of 65 owners. You know we are going to have to pay for those who are walking away and those in charge could care less since they are no doubt dipping into the pot to pay their shares. <br/>Management: witch with a B. They suck and she sucks. They have had three miserable no good managers in a row. 0 for 3.<br/>Community: Fighting with the board and divison among residents. Sadly this building is sodum and gomorrah. Married men and women cheating because they visit solo and because they can. We find it replusive and I agree with another post we stopped using the pool.<br/><br/>Read article posted about this place there are real problems that will not be taken care of any time soon and will cost you your life savings. <br/><br/><br/>

    Dune Deck is not a good home

    Too costly for what you get. Disrespect of owners by board and manager. We are going into debt and it is needless. Look around and you will see the few who are benefiting off the backs of all the rest. Happy to rent it out but we refuse to live here. There are a lot renting their units to help pay costs so you will see a lot of turnover in residents here. We had to hire a professional to come and examine our apartment because of the complaints of bed bugs in building.

    Nightmare on Ocean Street

    Stack five what a mess. One of the hurricanes ripped throught the building when one of the owners left his condo shutters open. Ever since that incident the five stack and back half of the building windows do not close properly. The building is listing to one side and the back could crumble. The pool is unsafe and the garage roofing collapsed. Workers cut the tension cables during construction causing more money in construction. This was on purpose to hike fees to residents. Some board members personally proffited from these actions. The building needs to be demo'ed and rebuilt. Talk about a money pit this is it. move in at your own risk. I agree with bad managment, bad boards and no transparency. All to the tune of more than $35,000 assessed to residents in six months and most due immediately. Now they want to access another $25,000 per unit. These crooks are out of their minds.<br/>

    dune deck has serious flaws

    everything written here is the truth. it may be a great location but the building is falling apart and in constant repair. infighting with board and residents. money missing and mispent. some two million unaccounted for with no recepits. assessing over thirty five thousand dollars due in a matter of five months has been a severe hardship on most owners. if the boards had only used the money for intended purposes and not lunches out, dinners out, plane tickets, trips, golf outings, private attorney fees to stop foreclosures on board members units, paying off former manager who took money as construction overseer which was never voted for. the next manager hid this and they got away with it. that was almost the worst one we figured she never sat for the CAM because she was as dumb as a brick. The newest one is just unspeakable. most of the residents have proof of all of this under the table activity and as soon as the hauntingly beautiful part time resident attorney writes her book this will all be public knowledge. she told me her DA friend is looking into these allegations and more. I think someone told me this already was at the DAs office so maybe twice is the magic number to stop the bleeding. if only I could state my name but I wish my affections for her be kept down low. I have tried to sell and was forced to pull my listing since the prices took a nose dive. you have to ask why these are so cheap right now. the building may never be in good shape it has foundation problems due to the former board telling people to cut cables. it has shifted and there are problems with the five stack and further stacks back of it with windows and door that will not close correctly. most of the members of the boards have been the most despicable human beings but like fungus you cannot get rid of them they just keep getting back on. nothing short of a hurricane taking out this building will end the madness and indenturing of residents here. even then they will problably want to rebuild at four times actual cost. deep back pockets with our money. buy at your own risk here nothing has sold in six months and nothing will.

    worthless property

    maintenance cost twenty thousand a year. builing in crumbles all time. boards keep charging more and more. we will all go broke. noone can sell here. manager nasty slam door in my face. we had qualified governement engineer looking into construction problems and board dismiss him as idiot hot head. we have three recalls in as many years. I shrug my head every time I come into town. building messy and unattractive to new buyers. Unflattering article about this place by man with seven lis pendens all over PB. no one has anything nice to say except view and we may be in ocean soon if no sea wall replaced.

    Objectively positve

    I live in the real world and I know it's not perfect.<br/><br/>We bought our Dune Condo last year and haven't regretted that decision for a minute. The building is simply the best looking structure on the strip. The location couldn't be better right on a long and beautiful beach. And the views are just breathtaking. We fell in love with the place and made a decision to buy.<br/><br/>But Dune Deck isn't perfect.<br/><br/>Yes, there have been management problems in the past. But a few good people have volunteered to join the new board and are taking their responsibilities seriously. There is more transparency and a greater responsiveness to the community. <br/><br/>Yes, the building has suffered from past neglect and poor management of restoration works. But those problems are being fixed and once the costly job is done, we are confident, Dune Deck will prove to be one of the better investments we have made. <br/><br/>Yes, the weight of the past, the costly restoration works and the general decline in real-estate values (an opportunity for any new buyer) have all helped to drive a few neighbors towards what one can only describe as self-destructive attitudes as evidenced by some of the reviews reflected on this site, comments that can't be taken all that seriously. How could someone who bought his or her apartment a number of years ago for its excellent location and views now rate these very same features as "poor"? One wonders.<br/><br/>We live in Switzerland, a place many people think of as a "perfect" example of civility and democracy. But even Switzerland isn't perfect. We have come to appreciate the good things about the country, and as citizens we have tried to fix the problems the country has. We live in a real world of imperfections but we also do what we can to help fix it. <br/><br/>Dune Deck isn't perfect but it's on a mend. Objectively we are positive about its future.<br/><br/>Kamran Kashani<br/><br/>

    Dune Deck has a negative impact on my bottom line

    You can't live here and you can't sell. Evil boards and nasty manager makes for a very unpleasant experience. Cops stationed at the meetings, as another poster referenced, No one knows where the first 2 million went and now they want to spewnd more. Assessments are sky high and the only thing we can do to stay afloat is rent. Stay away from this money pit!! The current board has double the quarterly maintenance and assessments. The current board refuses to find out where the money went but will place a lien on you if you miss one payment.

    Nothing has sold in more than a half a year

    You have to wonder what is going on when nothing is selling. All the bad reviews must be true. If even H a m p ton cannot sell one something is off. They will dump your condo just to sell so that Ada can stay numero uno in sales in PB. She doesnt care if you get a good price as long as she makes her sales. Heck she will even #%^@# if that is what it takes to sell a unit. She uses her skanky daugher to help her skew the numbers in her favor. It behooves a prosepective buyer to check and see what is going on. Beware of the Bwitch in the office when you ask questions. Look and see how many liens on units and on the building in the last year or two. See how many units are in foreclosure. Ask how many units are in arrears. You have to remember for all those that dont pay it makes you owe more. Special assessments going through the stratosphere and climbing and no explanation where the two million went. Balconies dont cost a hundred grand each. That is what the board told us. They destroy the records then step down from office. I could go on and on but look up the numbers yourself. Looks like it has been over a half a year since any one got lucky and got out. I would also ask for some financial records for the last five years if you want a good laugh since most of the figures are pulled from thin air and written by inept managers who took a lot of the money along with some past and present board members. The answer to your question is yes, mine is up for sale right now but we can afford to hold on a little longer. We arent broke yet.

    Cross off my list no good here

    I looked at several units here and found bed bugs and sour smell in the halls. I would not buy here. The AC in the builing is old and there are too many repairs all around. Many residents not happy and the office is bad to ask questions. Stupid people running place will run it into the ground in a hurry. I will cross this off my list. Many reasons none are selling with prices very below market. Un acceptable.

    Read the reviews there is much truth here. Residents must now pay more of the same 1.5 million bank loan as others go belly up. $800,000 still left with only 35 residents paying and they will pay twice for this. Property is at an all time low. More money more crooks in office. this place is hades with no shade and no beach left. A good hurricane will take it out. One can only hope.

    dune deck garbage

    Dune Deck is well known for employing the drecks of Souteastern Forida for their property management team. The latest CAM is only available 1.5 hours a day 5 days a week, so if you have any problems or want to access a unit for sale, good luck. This state of affairs is due to the profligate spending by the crooks on the dune deck board...also a long-standing problem of over 5 years. One board was run by the Mafia and almost put the place into the ground. This thievery, plus assorted problems including inherent structural damage to the building, a sea wall in abject disrepair, and bedbugs, makes this place a no-go for any prospective buyers. My advice? STAY AWAY!

    Dune Deck Distasteful Disaster

    There are condos and then there are condo disasters. This is a travesty. Enter at yur own risk. This place shoulda washed away in the ocean by now. Mother nature doesnt even want this trash. I rented here a few years ago in the middle of a recall. The board was stealing money to pay off a bankruptcy by one of their own and putting so much into there own pockets it was making heads spin. Man talk about the mob running this dump. I would never own here and living here was hell because of who they let run the place- white trash. The Byitch that was in the office was sleeping with the president of the condo ass. and going through the trash to find dirt on any body she could. I heard she is working at Wal-mart as a greeter. Rent or live any place butt here.

    Completely Unacceptable

    I wish I had found this web site before I wasted my time flying into FL to see this dump. The managment is the worst I have ever encountered. The board members will not tell you anything truthful. I have heard the stories of corruption and believe every word now that I have been spoon fed lies directly from board members. The building is in ruins and need millions to fix. There is no quick fix to the enormity of problems here. With so few units in totality and after some research finding out only a handful of honest residents pay their fair share it is easy to see how one person could wind up paying for every one here and go broke in a few short years. My money will be better spent elsewhere and in a community that fosters honesty and expects all dealings with money to be above board. You can see why nothing has been selling even in a market that is coming back from disaster only a few short years ago.

    Dune Deck Dump

    What a dump. Scaffolding everywhere and I was told this has been going on for three years. No one would say when it would end. Nightmare with assessments every few months and huge bank loans of twenty five thousand each apartment due in a few years. I can see many losing their apartments when this comes due. I see the bad ratings others left and have to agree. My money is better spent anywhere but here.

    60K assessment on top of a 25K assessment

    In addition to a current $25 K assessment the board will impose an additional $60 K assessment per apartment this month. This is in lieu of constantly imposing $5 K every few months to pay for construction that never ends. Recalled board members from two different and two very corrupt boards now complain about issues that got them kicked off their respective board in the first place. No financial disclosure and a failure to work with residents to solve tough fiscal issues. They spent 2 million with no disclosure and complain the newest board is doing the same. They have the nerve to quote the law about assessments yet did not bother to inform residents after misspending and cheating them out of $2 Million while they lined their pockets and ran their own businesses into the ground. They are despicable human beings. The newest board is no better. The prices are low for a reason. Move here and be DOOMED financially.

    Dune Deck condo for sale Assessments $60,000 to $70,000 April 2013

    We think they have an appetite for construction! Recalled board members asking for fiscal accountability makes us want to pee our pants with laughter if it wasn't so disgusting. They have to actually pay for their part of the construction now and not take 10% off the top or kick-backs. DiaRita did not destroy everything or dumpster dive for the rest. That infomation was saved a long time ago. This building hired four loser managers in a row and two more than participated in the demise of any trust with money that disappeared when they were fired. Two of them did so much verbal damage with lies about the building that its reputation makes people laugh when they pass by and see constant scaffolding. Why they want Tim off the project now must be earth shattering. We asked he be removed years ago. There is no bank who will loan four million to a bunch of non paying owners. $500,000 in arrears in payments means that less than half of the 65 unit owners are pulling their weight. You can make up all the lists you want on how great it is to live here but the fact is like our not so crazy friend said you all have an appetite for desctrucion of our wallets. In just the last two years we have had to pay $21,000, $2,000, $1,000, $3000, $5000 and now they want to top this off with $60,000 to 70,000 per. We have to pay constantly to cover shortages of those unwilling or unable to pay their part. More than a few are going to walk away from their under-water mortgages if you assess this much and leave us all holding the bag over and over. $6 million in four years is an insane amount of money to plow through if the board has its way. The board doesn't have to get approval for a loan either and they can make it an assesment without approval by unit owners. You all should read the law since you knew how to take advantage of it in the past. You have no leg to stand on here. The board can do what they want because of the size of the builing and low anual income. The building needs some serious repairs but for what you all are spending we would have been better off if you bulldozed it and started from scratch. First the south parking lot deck collapsed and then the north parking lot deck collapsed taking with it parts of several units. New buyers have vanished since March of 2012. We aren't counting short sales. Insider info leaking out was only part of the problem for people trying to sell here since you had some serious office problems with two of the worst CAMs we have ever encountered. You should ask those who want out now how bad this new assessment will make any chance of a unit selling in the next few years. Can they afford to pay $90,000 to get out or will they toss up their hands and walk away. You talk about market prices going up when the constrution is done. They will only go up if the market dictates an increase in housing prices. The trend has been on the decline and all market indicators say they will decline another 20% over the next two years and remain there. The construction is all about repairs and getting the building back into a safe operating mode. How is this going to raise prices when the building shoulda been this way all along. Fix what you need to but keep the politics and crystal ball antics out of it. You all have no idea what you are talking about and your business ethics and personal repeated bankruptcies and liens have shown us you know diddly squat.<br/><br/>

    Cheap for a reason

    Where is the notice that unit 409 sold for $102,000 in November? <br/><br/>With assessments coming upwards of $60,000 on each unit it is no wonder they going cheap. The November minutes show that 16 units are in arrears over 30 days and some more than 90 days while others over four years. Sixteen units out of 65 not paying. Would you want to move here? Now we are being told the building is collapsing in certain stacks and if you drive by you see all the scaffolding and tension cables holding up this house of cards. We wish we had sold five years ago but my health did not allow for it. Now we are captives of increasing assessments that will break our bank accounts. This place is not worth all the hassle for a mere three months that we stay here in the spring. We have to rent now to make enough to pay off all the assessments and can't stay here ourselves.

    Building is falling apart and they are assessing us to death

    One would have to be out of ones mind to buy here. As others have noted sixteen and counting upwards apartment owners are not paying assessments and maintenance fees. In two short years the assessments will now amount to $110,000 per apartment at the end of this month. Read that figure again it is correct. The board is passing a huge assessment of $60,000 to $70,000 per unit. The building has sustained serious damage from two collapses and hurricane damage with no end to reconstruction. Soon many will fail to pay assessments and this will place the burden of payment on the few who are able. Anyone wishing to sell will have to pay in full all assessments and no one can afford to do that if they pass such a large assessment. The last units to sell here went for $105,000 and $120,000 and a very hopeful but ignorant past board member thinks the price will turn around and increase. I have to reiterate another poster who said no they will not. The building is falling down and all of these repairs will only bring it back to being safe and up to code. The market will not bear a price increase in the next five years. Our insurance was canceled due to lack of building maintenance which caused another collapse. There is another condo in south Florida where nine residents went into default and one lone owner is paying 100% of everything to keep his credit score good. It is shameful that we have residents in our building who are Doctors, lawyers and the like and they choose not to pay a dime. I am weary of paying for other residents and fearful of going broke under these construction happy boards. I think at this point the logical solution would be to raze the building and start over. It is not far from being condemned as unsafe and some of the previous construction is already crumbing from sea salt.

    Dune Deck Condo for sale Palm Beach Florida Foreclosures Cheap

    Apartments selling for $105,000 and $120,000 and under water most of the building now that there is going to be $60 to $70,000 per aparment assessment this month 2013. Unit owners owe over $120,000 in assessments in two years on each apartment. Going broke and going under water. Sea wall bad, balconies bad, parking garage roof cave in, electrical bad and pluming going bad. Not a good place to live or buy. I will have to decalre bankruptcy soon to protect my laste assests. Some may list apartments for sale at $400,000 just to bring prices up. Not going to happen. No solution since no bank will loan us money. We owe $600,000 from last $1.5 million loan and 18 units not paying a dime. Those who paid will pay again and again until we are all broke on skid row.

    They must be out of their minds to live here

    I did a walk though two weeks ago with an agent who was trying to sell me on the finer points of these condos. I think she must have throught I was insane. I think the bleach got to her blonde brain. The building is falling down and owners talking about dire consequences of collapsing towers and decks in recent months. I am told there is going to be a massive assessment in April. Around sixty thousand per condo and there is already outstading twenty five thousand on most condos right now. I asked how many unit owners are not paying assessments or maintenance fees and the office staff could not answer my question. I asked one resident in the hallway and was told around 20 out of 65 are in arrears of some sort. The sea wall is bad and has needed to be fixed for over five years. There is no way on earth Lila can talk me into buying in this building. I don't care if she can get the price down to $95,000 this building is unacceptable and I would be afeared that it would collapse before I could move in and get myself into debt for the rest of my life. It is an old building and the amenities are very old and out dated. I cannot see this construcion mess ending in the forseable future with so much that needs repair. Another resident told me they are looking to assess some four million dollars on the residents to pay for construction to prevent the building from total ruin. I also asked about insurance on the building and bonding and was not given an answer. I think they are desperate to get in new blood to help pay for their catastrophe in the making. I am moving on to another area in Plam Beach where owners have taken care of their property. I think they are all out of their minds here and I have found the lying about the dire situation here to be insulting. I am also not using this particular agent or her mother either.

    Dune Deck condo property values tanked

    the palm beach assessors office PAPA states one unit worth $243,000 due to many improvements at other unit owners expense. The other units range from $96,000 to 203,000. The majority of units fall in the $96,000 to $138,000 range. These are accurate prices that units should sell for. The prices are over inflated listed in the market. Assessments of $22,000, $3,000, $1200, $5000 and $1000 per month in 2011 to 2012 for improvements. Two building collapses of parking structure porticos and according units above with dead cables and emergency conditions to prevent collapse. Sea wall has not been addressed and many other structural problems needing immediate attention. $1.5 million squandered by three boards and four corrupt managers. All office records shredded by CAM Mullins before terminated in June of 2011. This is documented in minutes by the board along with fact there will never have 2011 and 2012 financial records due to shredding of records by Rita. Present board trying their best to get building back on track. Julia doing great job but interference by former board members distracting completion of necessary work. Current manager as humble servant doing good job of keeping residents informed but information is misleading to prospective buyers from board propaganda. We have been asked by prospective buyers for skinny on building. Unfortunately not privy to much being part time residents. Bank financing does not appear to be available due to large amount of residents in arrears and high assessments are imminent. Good area to live in with nice view but far from healthy building gives many worries here.

    BUILDING NOT SOUND

    OUR DEAR FRIENDS LIVE HERE. THEY ARE GOING BROKE FROM THE ASSESSMENTS. IF THINGS CONTINUE THE WAY THEY ARE THERE WILL BE $120,000 IN ASSESSMENTS ON EACH CONDO IN THIS BUILDING BEFORE THE END OF THIS MONTH. THE MAJOR ASSESSMENT IS COMING SOON AND THE OTHERS HAVE BEEN ASSESSED ALREADY. THEY ASKED US TO POST THE TRUTH ABOUT HOW BAD IT IS. AS MUCH AS THEY WISH THEY COULD SELL THEY ARE STUCK. THEY HAVE NO COMPUTER BUT HAVE HEARD ABOUT THIS WEB BOARD. THEY FEEL EVERYONE IS LYING TO BUYERS WHO COME THROUGH. AS MUCH AS THEY NEED NEW BUYERS THE NEW BUYERS DO NOT PAY ONCE THEY GET IN. LESS THAN HALF THE BUILDING IS PAYING ASSESSMENTS AND MAINTENANCE COSTS. THEY ARE A FEW MONTHS AWAY FROM DECLARING THE BUILDING UNSAFE AND EVACUATING RESIDENTS AND THIS IS A CONSTANT THREAT BY THE BOARD UNLESS RESIDENTS COME UP WITH MONEY. THERE HAVE BEEN COLLAPSES OF PARTS OF THE BUILDING AND OTHER UNSAFE EVENTS HAVE OCCURED. OUR FRIENDS ARE AFRAID TO LIVE HERE. THE CONDOS HAVE BEEN DEVALUED AND ARE OVERPICED BY MORE THAN 50% NOW.

    Constuctive viewpoint

    nothing is selling and nothing has sold since last year. The assessments are sky high and keep climbing. 18 are banned from common areas due to non payment of maintenance fees. Morevoer the assessments are at $100,000 per apartment. The building has bad pipes and floors are unsafe with tension cables in need of replacement. One good hurricane will put all in dire straights in this building with no insurance. There is no excuse for what is happening to this building and frankly it is a disgrace to the other buildings along this stretch of real estate.

    Dire Straights in Dune Deck 3610 S Ocean, Palm Beach, FL

    6 units in foreclosure- one or two in bankruptcy. 8 not paying a dime. 10% of the unit owners in arrears. Bank loan behind payment. Building cumbling. Most tension cables dead. Estimated 4 million in repairs has now ballooned to 8 million in repairs. This to be paid by ASSESSMENTS TO THE 57 UNITS WHO ARE PAYING. Wait for the numbers to climb of those going under.<br/><br/>Raze this mess. Living here is nightmare to my wallet.

    OMG THEY ASSESSD 4 MILLON ON THE RESIDENTS DUE SOON

    THEY ASSESSED 4 MILLION ON 65 UNITS AND THEY EXPECT THESE POOR SHMUCKS TO COME UP WITH THE CASH IN A FEW MONTHS. 6 ARE IN FORECLOSURE. 57 WILL BE PAYING SIXTY THOUSAND PER OR MORE. THERE IS ALSO GOING TO BE MORE ASSESSMENTS COMING IN THE NEXT YEAR TO PAY FOR THE REST OF THE WORK THEY NEED DONE. LINING PIPES THAT HAVE COLLAPSED, CABLES THAT ARE DEAD IN UNITS. UNITS COLLAPSING, PARKING DECK ROOF COLLAPSING. I LOOKED AT A UNIT AND WAS IN DISMAY OVER THESE PRICES AND THE POSSIBLITY THAT I WOULD BE BUYING MYSELF INTO SERIOUS DEBT. IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE HAVING A FIRE SALE OR A WAR WHEN YOU SEE THE BUILDING. THE BUILING IS BOARDED UP AND HAS BEEN THAT WAY FOR YEARS. I PASS BY THIS ON MY WAY TO WORK AND HAD TO SEE FOR MYSELF WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT WITH THE HIGH ASSESSMENTS AND CONSTRUCTION THAT NEVER SEEMS TO END. IT IS ON THE OCEAN AND SALT WATER IS BAD BUT THIS BUILDING WAS IN NEED OF REPAIRS FOR YEARS AND NOTHING HAD BEEN DONE. NO ONE WILL GIVE A LOAN FOR THIS PLACE. NOT A GOOD INVESTMENT OR RISK. AFTER SEEING THIS MESS IN PERSON AND LOOKING AT VALUES OF THE CONDOS THEY ARE VERY OVERPRICED. I WILL STAY IN WEST PALM LONGER AND SAVE UP TO MOVE INTO A CONDO THAT IS NOT SO COSTLY.

    Even board members are trying to sell and run from here

    #202 owned by a board member is trying to sell. Raised price $60,000 to cover new 4 million dollar assessment on 54 condo owners who are still paying their maintenance fees. 11 unit owners are in arears to the tune of a half million dollars. The board is foreclosing on residents. The city of South Palm is a breath away from condeming the building. The engineer in charge of construction is charging a whopping three times industry standards. So far they are spending 5.5 million and want more money. Assessments in the last two years have amounted to over $120,000 per condo. The property is devalued but the ones trying to sell keep raising prices to cover the mess of construction. The building is in such terrible shape the insurance company cancelled their contract due to breach on DDs part. They knew about the desperate condition of the building before the last collapse. There has been board recalls and managers fired and hired like they were running a fire sale. No records due to Rita Mullins CAM destroying the office files years ago to cover up wrong doing and what went missing with her personaly when she walked off the job. This used to be a good building ten years ago but there is too much work that has to be done and one by one residents will go under. No one can afford this financial nightmare. They are offering loans from the bank at 8% for 3 years? That amounts to $12,000 in interest payments. Buy in haste repent with wallet for life. $1 is too much to pay for one of these. They will never be valued at anything but market price and Mr Harrison is wrong when he suggests they will go up in value. No they will only be worth what the market price is. All this work to make the building and each condo up to safe standards. There is no improvements being made only the fixing of code violations and deterioration.

    Not fit for cockroaches

    I saw this dump last week and all I can say is good luck. What some apartments are asking is steep compared to all the work they assessed and want to assess. I was told 4 million just assessed on the tiny 65 units and they have to take their own loans out. The buildings rating is very poor and there is no bank that will loan the condo the money. They are out of their minds. It looks like so much work that there seems to be no end in assessing. I am wondering why the city has not closed it down with all the collapsing and pipe bursting. I was lucky to find out about this before considering it. The cheapest at $99,000 is still too much. There is no way I am going to knowingly get into deep debt just to live on Ocean Avenue. There is no beach left and when looking out some apartments you had to worry about a hurricane. There are far better choices and better buildings in pristine condition.

    The infighting continues in Dune Deck

    Rita is not the manager no matter what that resume says and Ron was on the recalled board. That being said they are on their third new manager since. They need money now for construction and previously recalled board members have their panties in a snit because they cannot call the shots when it comes to financing the four million plus dollar renovation that is now in year three. There have been two major collapses, pipes bursting, board upheaveals, missing accounting files, a million and a half squandered and the same jerks working on the building that every owner wanted off two years ago. The new board has things under control and that is killing the crooks who want their ten percent off the top. They were ousted and voted out. Time to get down to real change and fix the building. Julia is doing a fine job and must be left to take the reigns or the building will be shuttered by the city. Not a good time to do anything but hope they can fix the building and get financing and some insurance before he next hurricane or we will all be looking at that $120,000 that was assessed and wishing we were invested anywhere but here.

    Disaster

    What I saw from the car- tension cables, crumbling balconies, construction equip in the garage, scaffolding. What a mess. I was afraid to get out of the car. Who in their right mind would consider buying in Dune Deck. Looks great in the real estate brochures. Each Dune Deck listing claims that this is an upscale building with wonderful amenities. What a crock.

    They are out of their minds

    We drove by last week and it was a disaster. From what we read and saw there is no way they can convince you that it is safe to live there and that they are not going to assess you to death. They just hit the residents of this 65 unit building with an assessment of $4 MILLION DOLLARS DUE JUNE 1, 2013. We also checked to see how many residents are in arrears and they said nearly 20% of the building is not paying a dime.<br/><br/>No way on earth would I buy here.

There is no insurance and there is roof damage.

    Dune Deck condo should be condemned

    I saw this building last month. Took a drive by. I did not see the building only scaffolding. The 4.3 million assessment is a deal breaker. I am with all the other reviewers that this building is going under. If not crumbling then financially. I would not buy here and I would not rent here with all the constuction noise. I looked this over three years ago and it was the same mess only 1.5 million in assessments. I was going to rent then but am glad I did not. I heard they are paying 125,000 to fix each balcony. Some construction company sure has the dummies in this place sold on the high cost of repairs. Be forewarned and do not let Ada or her addlebrained offspring talk you into even walking into this mess. You could be risking your life entering the building.

    The theives have cost me my apartment here

    Rita Mullins is the worst CAM ever bar none. She sabotaged attempts to sell my unit so I gave up trying to sell. She shredded documents and a lot of resident belongings along with a computer and computer program and petty cash went missing the day she quit. She is a disgrace and left the building in shambles. There are no records so no one can get a loan thanks to her misdeads. That needs to be said. She is a dispicable person.<br/><br/>In addition to the 4.3 million assessment on each unit they did not mention the $17,000 to almost $19,000 that was assessed last year on May 22, 2012. This was to repair the collapse that cost us our insurance and the insurance on the building since the board knew about prior damage and was warned by the city to fix it. The board is still concerned that the building will be condemned.<br/><br/>We have 20% of residents going under in the building and unable to pay even maintenance costs. There is no loan for us and they expected us to come up with a 20% down payment on 4.3 million dollars and gave us three weeks. I am five feet from walking out the door and letting them take my unit. I am unable to pay this now. They should have condemned the building and we could have all moved on with our lives and sold the lot to a developer. I have been here a very long time and would have been better off. Now I am facing having my credit ruined thanks to theives on former boards, former CAMS and the construction companies.<br/><br/>

    DIRE SITUATION NO BEACH LEFT

    http://www.condonewsonline.com/local_news.htm<br/><br/>NOTHING IS BEING DONE TO SAVE OUR BEACH! ONE CONDO A FEW DOORS SOUTH HAS BEEN DECLARED UNSAFE AND THAT HAS US WORRIED THAT MOTHER NATURE MAY USE IT AND WASH IT AWAY FLOODING THE ENTIRE AREA IN A SEVERE STORM. THE CONDITION OF OUR BUILDING IS VERY UNSAFE AND A STORM WITH NO BEACH OR SAND TO PROTECT US LEAVES US FODDER FOR THE ELEMENTS.<br/><br/><br/>When asked if the Town of Palm Beach uses federal monies to restore its beaches, Frankel said, that "The Town did not want federal money to renourish the beaches." The Town of Palm Beach is unique from the rest of Palm Beach County because they do their own coastal management which did not include federal monies in the funding of their projects.<br/><br/>Arlene Kurtis, resident at 3360 S. Ocean Blvd., expressed her concerns and said that her local government has refused to restore the severely eroded dunes for this upcoming hurricane season. Mrs. Kurtis wanted Frankel to know about the seriousness of this situation in the south end of the Town of Palm Beach.<br/><br/>Eileen Curran, a Coalition To Save Our Shoreline (SOS) board member and resident of 2778 S. Ocean Blvd., described how the inlets cause interruption to the natural flow of sand from north to south. She described how the Army Corp of Engineers dredges the Lake Worth Inlet and it dumps the sand 15 to 20 miles out to sea, instead of placing it on the shoreline south of the inlet. This resulted in the loss of sand showing in the severe erosion of our beaches. Mrs. Curran asked for Rep. Frankel’s help in correcting this situation to get the Army Corps to dump the sand at no cost on the beaches in the Town of Palm Beach. Frankel said she appreciated this information and it gave her weaponry to use.<br/><br/>Lewis Katz, Reef Condo on S. Ocean Blvd., said that there is a debate over who should pay for protection of Condo/Co-op shoreline properties in the Town of Palm Beach. He said the new notion by the Town is that taxpayers should be "self sufficient" and rely totally on seawalls for protection from the wrath of Mother Nature and the ocean. Katz said sea walls cause erosion issues. He stated that coastal structures, wide beaches and dunes need to be considered before building giant seawalls to armor the shoreline. Katz asserted that the upland properties and buildings serve as protection for the properties behind them and therefore designing environmentally suitable beach nourishment projects with coastal structures, wide beaches and dunes in front of the existing seawalls will serve to not only protect the beachfront properties, but all those behind it.<br/><br/>

    Bad reviews are true

    I was interested in this building because of all the great write ups. Like another poster said they lie. Not only is there some serious construction but I was told there would be on-going construction for the next two years. I asked how long it has been going on and was told since 2009. That is five years of noise to tolerate. The cost per condo in assessments since that time have been near $170,000 per and climbing. The board just placed a $4.368 million assessment on the condos and there are a lot struggling to make maintenance payments. I can see that any one buying into this building will wind up owing something in the neighborhood of $250,000 in assessments to make up for all those who will have to declare bankruptcy. <br/><br/>I also see where there is no beach left and the sea water is pounding on the seawall. I asked when that was taken care of last and told they have no idea. No idea. The seawall is the last protection from the ocean and they haven't taken care of it in years. The roof will need to be replaced soon and they have no insurance on the building due to them lying to the insurance company.<br/><br/>Good luck with that. I can see why the last one sold for $120,000 back in mid 2012. Nothing is going to sell and nothing should until they get their people to ante up what they owe. The ones selling for $350 and $450 are dreaming. You can ask all you want but no one in their right mind would want to get into debt like this.<br/><br/>I could not see any of the perks. Too much mess and danger. I was scared to even go in the building since the front facement has collapsed and is being held up by beams.<br/><br/>One good hurricane and this dump will be in the ocean. You can keep your dune deck I am not interested.

    Building should be condemned

    Wasted my time looking at this mess. I was told there was a recenet 4.3 million assessment on 65 residents and asked how many are in arrears. Twenty eight. Twenty eight not paying this assessment and many of the others totaling nearly $150 to $175 per condo. Those who paid are still paying for those who aren't. Look for a more solvent building one that is not a breath away from having the city declare it unsafe. One that is not feet away and one good storm away from being washed into the ocean. One that has insurance coverage and one that is not in dire shape. I am looking for a new agent. One that will not waste my time on worthless and damaged property. I agree .99 cents it too much to pay for one of these. They will not withstand the weather much longer and one more collapse will send them all packing by order of the city.

    BOA wants 5.9 million and will force this assessment next

    Homeowners were assessed $4,348,256.30 in April of 2013. Many owners are still having problems with payments of $12,000 to $13,000 from last years garage deck collapse and payments of $19,000 to $24,000 from the $1,500,000.00 loan the bank called due in 2011 due to negligence on the part of the board that caused a foreclosure to be filed against the building for a measly $2,000.00. Now there is no loan and 29 residents have not made the twenty percent down payment of $10,000 to $14,000 on this new assessment. The BOA is charging 5.9% interest to the residents if they do not pay the $68,000.00 to $72,000.00 in full. The latest plan is to revamp both of the recently collapsed decks and paint this building to the tune of another $1,000,000.00. This would bring the new cost to $5,307,863.20 that homeowners must come up with. This has been in the works since the 2009 plans made by recalled board members and they are still using that very same constrution company that is charging 25% over industry standards. This would bring the total owed by most homeowners to $96,000.00 on just this one assessment. There can be no loan due to a loan default and now 29 not paying their fare share. They still have not addressed the sea wall issue or the town of south palm beach almost condemning the building. The beach errosion is dire and the city will not pay to save the buildings along ocean ave from washing into the sea. We have been asked to pay $142,000.00 in assessments on our home since 2011. This is the real truth. Apartment #408 just sold at foreclosure auction for $20,300.00 on June 18, 2013. That is no typo it sold for twenty thousand dollars. With nearly $150,000.00 in assessments on it they would be foolish to offer more. The owners that are trying to sell are asking $350,000 and $450,000 are they are delusional. The propery is near worthless and one breath away from being condenmed or worse, one good storm away from leaving a lot of people homeless when the sea takes it out. Buy here and repent in lesure for a very long time.

    correction to the number not making payments

    28 out of 65 residents are not making assessment and other payments. Almost half the building is in default. This is not a solvent or a safe building.

    Don't care to get into serious debt buying here.

    I went to have a look last week because the reviews were great. The realtors are lying. I saw one nice unit at $425,000 but with almost $160,000 in assessments on it they must surely be joking. Every unit owes about that much and they are assessing more I was told. The work has been steady since 2009/2010 and scaffolding all over the place. They had three major collapses in the last two years alone. How can they lie like this? They have the nerve to list anything in here for more than $20. There is no beach left and when I swa the waves come so close it frightened me. Seems like a bunch of transients in this building too. I talked with four people and all were renting.

    The association bought apt 408 and residents must now pay for this too.

    <br/><br/>July 2013 receivables ledger shows over one million dollars in uncollected funds.<br/><br/>Porte Cochere collapse repairs and columns and beams in the garage have not been repaired and have been funded by those who are still paying since 2011. The building is heavily scaffolded and unsighlty to the public and is a serious threat in a storm.<br/><br/>The Association bought at auction apartment 408 for $20,500.00. This apartment has lost its certificate of occupancy and needs repairs that were evaluated at $150,000.00 in 2009. This is going to furthur strain owners in the building having to pay for this. You will not see this as being sold here. They are trying to raise the price of the apartments in the building despite no insurance and the city near condemning the building more than one time. There are eight years of back taxes unexcused by the city that must be paid along with the other fees mentioned to fix it. This brings a new assessment of at least $245,000.00 on the heads of apartment owners. It can not be rented out until the city approves the repairs. The former owner stripped the unit to bare walls. It is said the Pres. will not address this issue at a meeting. Did they get owner approval before making this purchase or is this another spur of the moment (costly) decision they are infamous for making???????????<br/><br/>There is no end to spending in this building. Some have deep pockets but most are starting to feel the ill effects of currently $150,000 per apartment in assessments. This new purchase has not even been addressed financially.<br/><br/>This note was sent by two former board members but has been corrected here. They lack any real estate knowledge and what is owed when an apartment is bought at foreclosure auction despite both of them trying to sell real estate in their spare time.<br/> <br/><br/> <br/>Residents for truth and transparency

    nothing worth looking at

    this was a wasted trip, when i saw the scaffolding i was afraid to enter the building. they had three collapses of this building in two years. the prices are far too high for ten owners not paying a dime. they keep assessing and the latest one had my head spinning. they have got to be kidding that this is an outstanding building? this is sub par and under water for a lot of residents. the prices are just wrong. you can see they are trying to pass the assessments on to new owners. with all the work that needs to be done i can see one good hurricane leveling this travesty. i am not interested in being lied to about how great this place is- it isn't.

    Endentured servant if you buy here

    Nothing sold since Oct 2012? I had to wonder what was going on. I was told $150,000 per condo assessment was just laid on the residents. The board seems unconcerned that 29 out of 65 are not paying assessments or quarterly maintenance. Several are in bankruptcy and have liens on them which means if you own one of these you paid until it is all paid off. Some $7 million in all in assessments in the last five or six years. Seems to me with the ocean encroaching next to the seawall they would be better off condemning the building like the town wanted to do instead of the constant bandaids. Not a good place to buy and from the looks of it and all the construction that has been going on since 2009 I was told it is an eye sore.

    Absolutely a total dump

    Dune Deck in Palm Beach is a building that has one of the worst locations in the city thanks to its lack of beach. It is practically in the ocean. Checking it out from the front you’d never think that Dune Deck offers any amenities or excitement because you see nothing but scaffolding and construction and you would be correct. It offers nothing in the way of anything worthwhile. The fitness center is stanky and needs repair and the pool is nothig but pond scum with grey bubbles in the hot tub. The building needs paint and the construction and fees are mounting since 2009.<br/><br/>What a bald faced lie the ads are for this place. I checked with the city and they have threatened to shutter this building four times. It is in a very dangerous position with multiple collapses and no beach front. I have no idea what they mean about excitedment unless you mean the building falling down on you. We walked out on the deck on the other side of the pool area and had contstruction material fall near us.<br/>You take a risk even seeing this. <br/><br/>We also asked about the huge assessments and they are true and it is true 29 are not paying. Would you pay to live here? Some of these have been on the market for four years and the last one was a bank forclosure which the board bought at auction. Now the residents have to pay to fix this stripped unit and rent it out at more cost to the few residents who are dumb enough to pay since most are defaulting now. They should condemn this mess now and save everyone a lot of heartache and people like me from wasting their time seeing this abomination.<br/>A big fat zero for this dump.

    Buyer beware of non payers in building

    Deliquency rate is 29 units out of 65. This is higher due to them buying a unit back for 20K themselves. Rate is 30 out of 65 not paid latest assessement of 4.3 million. Last assessment of 1.5 million not fully paid off. Last year 13K assessment per unit for collapse. Sounds like a bargain when you consider no loan due to deliquency rate and city of South palm beach threatening to shudder building due to all of collapses in last three years. Drive by and you only see scaffolding. Most raised prices to cover last 60K assessment.

    Unbelieveable she would drag me off to such a dump. I refused to go in. One look at the front and the back of the building was all I needed to see. Now that I have read most of the reviews here I know I made the right decision to fire my agent for showing me this dump. Great building with a lot of possiblity. Yes and huge possiblity it will wash in the ocean or that the city will condemn it. Holding the bag owing God only knows how much more money.

Avg price sold this year $68,000. Avg assessment per apartment $70,000 and up. 29 in arrears and one foreclosure owned by building makes mostly half building owing and other half broke.

    Oct 12, 2012

    Last unit sold on Oct 12, 2012, zero sold since. Something is rotten in Palm Beach at Dune Deck. I see new prices are to cover $150,000 per unit in new assessments during 2013. Wonder how many unit owers are going to be banned from using common areas since they are over 90 days in arrears. Half? Last time we looked into this building 1/3 were not paying. I am waiting until the prices drop to $25,000.

    building is unsafe and overpriced

    This is a house of cards. I could not belive my agent took me to see this. It has been under construction with major scaffolding for five years. There was some fuss and residents in an uproar about some new structural problem this week and the garage looked unsafe to park my car in. They each owe something like 200,000 per condo in assessments in the last five years. The prices are over priced considering you are getting into debt in a building that might just fall down. It looks really unsafe. If you look at the stats here nothing has moved in two years. All you got to do is open your eyes. Forget the view you are throwing your money out the door. Someone told me they paid over 120,000 for each balcony to be remade. Concrete does not cost that much unless there are some severe structural problems being kept secret.

    Sad shame this building

    Poster Julia, is now unhappy. This comes two years after she took control and was recently voted off the board. She is now selling. Why is it that former board members and some current ones are trying to sell all the time? Things must be worse than they are letting on. Nothing sells here just bankruptcies. We read between the lies we were told three years ago and did not buy here. Sad so many will go bankrupt from the constant problems. We hear all the news and we are just a few condos north.

    you must be joking

    assessments are outrageous. Maintenance fees are insanely high. there is no reason to pay $1400 a month for utilites and a door person, whatever. they have around $150,000 in assessments owed on each one and many are in default. the building is under scaffolding and parts are collapsed or will be soon. not safe, and surprised the city allows this to continue while the board bleeds residents dry for repairs going on five or more years. I think they have liens on around five people and the building owns two units. I asked and about 25% are not paying or behind. there is no way i want to get into debt to live in a building that is unsafe. I don't care what they said about it being done any time soon. look around there is much more to do to bring the building up to code and safe to live in.

    Constant Assessments

    It is unheard of what the assessments and quarterly maintenance are on these condos. #409 sold in 2012 for $104,990 and they are now asking $209,999 because of the assessments in the last year and a half have been $150,000 on each condo. There is no way I want to buy into a building that is sub par and in serious need of more repairs with constant collapses of parts of the building. They are struggling to save the pool right now. This was a waste of time seeing. It is an eyesore. Any serious storm will do major damage to this unprotected building.

    Worth a lot more than zero

    The building is in a wonderful location and offers fabulous ocean-front views. Its beach is no narrower than many of its neighbors nor the beach you can see at the Palm Beach park just north of the golf course., Like many properties in Palm Beach and other coastal areas, extensive restoration is essential and now ongoing. This is accompanied by noise (M-F about 9am to 4 PM), cosmetic issues which are temporary, some inconvenience, and cost. It will take another couple of years to complete the reconstruction, and the building will not look good until that is done. The poor current appearance of the building provides a buying opportunity at favorable prices - see analysis below. <br/>There are 65 units and in the worst case about 45 of these will pay most of the costs of reconstruction, with some recovery from eventual obligated sales of the units of non-contributing owners. A significant part of the reconstruction is already completed or well-advanced, and new elevators are already in place. So if one assumes that the future restoration costs will total about $5M at most, that will work out to about $6M/45 = $133,000 per responsible unit owner or less. The payments will be made over several years for the majority of unit owners who want to pay over time. So that is the approximate realistic future cost that should built into bids on units at Dune Deck. <br/>The building is not going to "fall down", "wash away", or be condemned. And it currently has an honest and satisfactory Board and a good property manager - refreshing changes from the past. <br/>The right price for a unit at Dune Deck is hardly zero - it is some number to which about $133,000 should be added in real future costs and also an additional number for the noise and inconveniences associated with the repairs. If I were thinking of buying now at Dune Deck I would probably total the adjustment to about $150,000, and not more than $200,000. <br/>The units at Dune Deck have different sizes and degrees of ocean view. Once the construction work is done - say in 2016 - the largest and best located units are likely to be worth well over $500,000, the smaller and less well positioned units less. You can do your own math on this to determine your bid price keeping in mind the calculations above. If you are planning to live here full-time, you should give yourself more credit in the math for your inconvenience/noise factor. For the seasonal or part-time owner/occupant these will be a lesser factor. And you should not "buy to flip" unless you are willing to wait a few years to do so. <br/>Dune Deck was once one of the finest condo buildings on Palm Beach island. The large north and south (pool) deck facilitate the ocean views and sense of openness to the beach and the sea. The pool is large and lovely, beach access perfect. When restored Dune Deck will again be an excellent and valuable property. <br/>I have lived on a part-time basis at Dune Deck since buying at a fair price in 2009 after the real estate decline. I am paying my assessments and holding the property as most other owners are doing. Despite the problems of the past and the current ongoing work on the building I can honestly say that I have enjoyed my condo at Dune Deck and look forward to spending more time here in the future.

    ONE THIRD of unit owners not paying. Building will only be up to code when finished.

    Despite best efforts to eschew the truth when you look at a unit there are over 20 unit owners not paying. The building (ie; the owners) now own two units that went into bankruptcy. THAT IS ONE THIRD OF THE UNIT OWNERS. The board saw fit to buy back the two bankruptcy units at pennies on the dollar. That means that as an owner you are now paying a share of two more units. 65 units divided by only 45 paying = 1.45 your cost. If the assessment is currently at $133K per unit the new amount owed would be $192K per unit. This is currently based on the fact there is no interest added to those figures if you do not pay on time. The board chose some outrageous amount they will charge you if you are late or do not pay. There was no bank loan so the owners must pay or the board is foreclosing. The board could not get a loan since a previous board defaulted on a bank loan and they are a bad risk. When all is said and done the building will only be up to code. Nothing more, just up to code. The market will state what the property is worth and a half mil each is out of the question for a building that still has not addressed a possible new roof or has nothing in a reserve account for said roof or any emergency. BY THE TIME ALL IS SAID AND DONE EACH OWNER WILL HAVE PAID $500,000 IN ASSESSMENTS over SIX years of construction. Is holding on to property that has been under repair for over six years (with no real end in sight) worth buying? ONE THIRD ARE NOT PAYING. They are not only not paying assessments but they are not paying their maintenance fees. This building has the highest fees on the blvd and the least amount of amenities. There are no perks to living here and waiting for it to become AVERAGE is absolute stupidity.

    Several Collapses of major parts of the building since 2009

    Collapse of south parking deck, collapse of north parking deck, collapse of porte coche, collapse of unit 206 sending owner into bankruptcy. Owner who bought in 2009 says it is a deal but go ahead and ask him if he paid his assessments or maintenance on time. Only if you have very deep pockets can you afford to own here. Owners who have stuck out all phases since 2009 have been assessed over $8 million for all the routine repair work and collapses of various parts of the building. 45 or less (more like 30) are paying on that $8 million. Dune Deck is closest to the water than any other condo. There is no money in the emergency fund. No money for a roof or any other emergency repair. It is just assess assess assess. Like the previous post this building will be up to code and nothing more when the $8 million or more (depending on any more collapses) is spent.

    Palm beach county's little best kept secret

    I have been coming to the dune deck and the south palm beach area for over 20yrs to visit my uncle in which I have stayed for months to a year. Sadly there has been incompetent boards and building mgrs. who are hired by the board. With that being said, that goes with out saying for almost every condo in south florida. so very and I do mean very few condo's are an exception. The dune deck has sensational oceanfront views which is my uncles condo. It's breath taking and peaceful. It now has recently remolded wonderful pool and small jacuzzi. very simple type building. No it doesn't have all the high end fancys but it's peaceful ,clean , nicely landscaped, and a great stretch of shoreline of nature like endangered sea turtles that nest along the beach. The beach even in the highest of season is still empty of people early mornings through out most of the day and night. I found most times to have been the only sole on the beach . I believe this is palm beaches little best kept secret of a place in lieu of the mismanagement of the monies. I will truly miss this place when my uncle passes on for unfortunately I don't have means to buy the condo from the family. Those people who wrote such drastic negative reviews never saw the other pure simple beauty of this building and it's true surroundings sorry go live with the trumps for this building is definantly not for you. I don't know the condition of the other units but my uncle faces the ocean and over the last twenty five years he remolded it to be a nice florida casual and comfortable place<br/><br/>

    noise noise and nothing but construction noise

    there has been nothing but construction for over 6 years. parts of the building have collapsed more than once. we too have a relative that has been here awhile and there is no beach left. what was once 50 feet of sand is now less than ten. scary the seawall will not hold this building. we stopped coming because of the headache of the noise and the corruption by the boards that has almost taken all of aunties money. we encouraged our aunt to sell but she is old and frankly will not admit there is a problem in the building. like most seniors she does not want to be bothered as she wait out her last few years while these boards rob her of her money. she will die here like a lot of other old people that live in this mostly geriatric building. the average age here is at least 80. the only people on the beach are relatives because the old timers cannot get past the construction to gain access to the beach. they can not use the pool since they have no handicap access anywhere in the building and that deck collapsed by the pool making it unsafe. if you think this is a gem you need to have your head examined because you are delusional.

    DUMPY OLD NO COMP BUILDING

    This building has the highest maintenance fees of any building on S Ocean. It sits a few feet from the water and frankly it looks as if the first floor apartments have flooded a few times. There has been scaffolding on the building since 2009 non stop. They have been threatened by the city to be condemned on several occasions due to the unsafe conditions in the building. There has been 2 million spent with no receipts as the board felt they did not have to account for the money. They took the books to NY and refused accountability for years. There has been close to $8 million in assessments in these past five years due to old age and several collapses of parts of the building including both decks and the front entrance and some have collapsed more than once. They are talking about beautifying the building but no one has any money left. There have been so many bankruptcies, foreclosures and owners not paying a dime for years. At any given time there are at least 20 owners in default. This is not a sound building financially. As someone else pointed out all of this money is being spent to save the building and bring it up to code. It is not the four seasons or any other luxury building on the block. To even suggest the constant noise is ok or that you must be Donald Trump to turn your nose up to the lack of any real amenities is ludicrous. The pool was unsafe not too long ago due to the collapse of the deck. Parking a car is a nightmare as you are constantly made to move your car for one repair or another. They have plans to continue the construction for at least another two years. There are no funds in reserve for any emergency. Buy at your own risk and make sure you ask questions even if the mgt or board slams the office door in your face. You have a right to ask questions and to see the financial papers for the previous years. You owe it to yourself to check the prices quoted by palm beach property assessor on each unit. The price is very accurate to the true value of the units. Not one is valued over $250K. The town of South palm is also very concerned about the lack of beach and erosian.

    Complete waste of my time

    I would have to concur with all the negatives written about this building. I could find no redeeming qualities. The prices are low for a reason, the assessments are astronomical and the maintenance fees are very high. For an old building with only a pool and some musty smelling storage lockers there are no genuine perks here. There is no security in the building sans a few door personnel untrained in providing qualified security. You have to wonder how effective they are in keeping out the criminal element being so close to the ocean at night with public access to the beach in front of the building and access to the pool area from the beach below. I found the garage to be unsafe to park a car in let alone use the door under the building to gain access. There seems to be a lot of renters in the building and a transient building is not what I wanted to look at. You would not know who is visiting, renting, owning or breaking in. With all of the assessments I was assured the building would be brought up to code. It was a waste of my time seeing this building.

    Bad reviews are true

    I may not have an MD or Phd behind my name but I can state unequivivally that this was a complete waste of my time. This building offers absolutely nothing in the way of what I would consider an amenity. It is sinking into the ocean with no beach front, under scaffolding with noise around the clock, construction that is going to keep going for at least another two to four years and more than 1/3 of the residents are in default and being sued by the building. The assessments are outrageously high for a building this size. I was told each unit has at least $200,000 in assessments on them since 2009 with no proof of how the money was spent. I repeat WITH NO PROOF HOW THE ASSESSMENT MONEY WAS SPENT.<br/><br/>ADIOS!

    We looked at this mess last year and it is sad they have not torn it down yet. bed bugs and cockroaches. The crooks run this place into the ground and try to imtimidate the honest owners here not to look into where the money went. Six million down the drain and no recipts to show where they spent it. Try looking into who got windows or other things in their apartments off the backs of their neighbors. The rumors here are true and sad that is a fact.

    Money Pit

    I fired my agent for taking me to this dump heap. I can afford better than this place and I do not need to go into permanent debt. They have something in the neighborhood of $10,000,000.00 in assessments on this 65 condo building and more than half are in arrears or bankruptcy. Why on earth would I want to look at a building that is six years into re-construction with at least 8 more prooven years needed for repairs? Each condo will wind up owning 1.5 million each before this is all said and done. I doubt given the crooks they have hired to do the construction this will ever be over. I asked to see the construction information and there is none. Nothing no contracts from when this mess started and the change orders would make your head spin. The crooks in charge are known far and wide for these overcharges yet there is no one here with any balls to fire these crooks. With prices this outrageous it is obvious to the non mentally challenged that the boards are crooked and keep these people in place for kickbacks. Better luck next time. Anyone with half a brain would see this place for the money pit that is is.

    My dog is too good for this building

    Why this building for sale still when it is falling down. I was afraid to walk though. I also have a pet and it is prescribed by my doctor and was told I could not have a pet here. Does no one check on these condos when they act above the law? <br/><br/>Upon a walk through I found the pool area to be quite dirty and the hot tub had not been cleaned in a long time. I was told they are short funds and some "amenities" are being cut back. I think the health of the residents should be first but with all the noise from construction and the dirty common areas I would not let my dog walk these halls and yes my Dog is allowed by law so their telling me no does not hold water. <br/><br/>I was told on the QT that more than five residents are now experincing bed bug infestations due to all the transient renters they have here. It is like a revolving door and you never know who is going to be staying here. <br/><br/>There is nothing special about a building that is full of thugs and cheats when it comes to high assessments and those that run the place cheat neighbors so they do not pay as much. There are many arguments, recalls and the like going on here and many residents banned from common areas. This is not a happy community when almost half are not paying maintenance fees or assessments. I was also told there are many more assessments to come in the next few years. They are in year six of construction with more years of noise and dangerous situatuions to follow.<br/><br/>We wanted to see what went on in the evening when most residents were back so we did a late night drive by and stopped at the diner on the end of the stip and walked up the very narrow beach. There is not much left and a good hurricane would wipe the building out to sea. Instead of seeing resident enjoying themselves on the beach or by the pool to our astonishment some obvious drunk on the top floor exposed himself and was peeing off the side of the building onto the beach. What on earth is going on in this building. Since when is urine an amenity to living in palm beach?<br/><br/>They can just keep their nasty building to themselves. Like I said my dog is too good for their building.

    Why this building for sale still when it is falling down. I was afraid to walk though. I also have a pet and it is prescribed by my doctor and was told I could not have a pet here. Does no one check on these condos when they act above the law? <br/><br/>Upon a walk through I found the pool area to be quite dirty and the hot tub had not been cleaned in a long time. I was told they are short funds and some "amenities" are being cut back. I think the health of the residents should be first but with all the noise from construction and the dirty common areas I would not let my dog walk these halls and yes my Dog is allowed by law so their telling me no does not hold water. <br/><br/>I was told on the QT that more than five residents are now experincing bed bug infestations due to all the transient renters they have here. It is like a revolving door and you never know who is going to be staying here. <br/><br/>There is nothing special about a building that is full of thugs and cheats when it comes to high assessments and those that run the place cheat neighbors so they do not pay as much. There are many arguments, recalls and the like going on here and many residents banned from common areas. This is not a happy community when almost half are not paying maintenance fees or assessments. I was also told there are many more assessments to come in the next few years. They are in year six of construction with more years of noise and dangerous situatuions to follow.<br/><br/>We wanted to see what went on in the evening when most residents were back so we did a late night drive by and stopped at the diner on the end of the stip and walked up the very narrow beach. There is not much left and a good hurricane would wipe the building out to sea. Instead of seeing resident enjoying themselves on the beach or by the pool to our astonishment some obvious drunk on the top floor exposed himself and was peeing off the side of the building onto the beach. What on earth is going on in this building. Since when is urine an amenity to living in palm beach?<br/><br/>They can just keep their nasty building to themselves. Like I said my dog is too good for their building.

    Planned Obsolensce as balconies done 5 years ago crumble once again

    No I am not an actor but my name sounds like one. <br/><br/>I am in shock this building is still standing after all this time. I am looking for my fourth rental property in PB and looked at this place about five years ago. Thought I would give it another try. The laughable construction of continuous shoddy work is still going on and at major cost to the few residents who can still afford to pay it. Why someone hasn't just taken a match to this place and be done with it is anyone's guess. The residents would be better served living elsewhere than paying over a hundred grand per unit to the thieves in charge. The construction guys must have the board in their back pocket to get away with highway robbery for so long. Most of the residents in the building are kinda old and feeble. They are taking advantage of their age and moving slowly while draining bank accounts so relatives will not notice Auntie Em is being fleeced. I can't think of a place more worthy than a razzie for worst building in palm beach. The areas they supposedly fixed five years ago are now beginning to crumble again, weather related? I think not. Porticos should last moe than five years before crumbiling from the weather. The disastrous conditions are due to shoddy work by the same work crew in place. How long does it take to fix this run down heap is anyone's guess. REminds me of that light bulb joke, how many iditiots does it take to fix Dune Deck and in what millenia will that be? I think the best answer would be when the last corrupt board member resigns and moves away. Unfortunately for the residents that is not soon enough. The fact no one can sell unless they give the place away makes it just deserts for the cheats as they must now pay the high assessments they forced on their neighbors. Anyone with a spit of intelligence would never buy here. There are plenty of cheap place to buy along the beach in PB but this one is not one of them unless you have a lot of money you don't mind just throwing away. Good money after bad is just plain bad judgment.

    Chicken little not- over priced and the building is falling down

    A friend told me about this place and I had to see if the rumors were true about the outrageous and exorbitant assessments. Yes they are true. This building has had major collapses four times in the last five years. The next one will be into the ocean where this dump should be. Well maybe not into the ocean we would not want to pollute the environment with trash. It is an old and out dated building with 65 units. More than half are in arrears or going bankrupt. The rest are left to pay the outrageous assessments. 10 million on this building in the last seven years and more to come. We asked where this money went and would you believe there are no receipts and no proof of a majority of the construction? Believe it. See how many units the building had to buy back in bankruptcy court to keep the prices from falling to $20,000 each. As a matter of fact we looked this building up and they did buy a unit back for that price. Now the residents are paying on three or four building owned units. Why would the board post comments here if not to dupe some poor sucker into buying here. Fresh blood to fleece their pockets. <br/><br/>Run away as fast as you can the building is falling here.

    They call it Doom Deck but we call it a Dung Heap

    Since 2009 Doom Deck has been under constant scaffolding with six major collapses of one part of the building or another. Both the north and south deck, the porte cochere and parking garages. Balconies costing upwards of $225,000 each. Yearly reports fudged and many years missing, board members recalled or kicked off the board on five separate occasions. Once a recall took out the entire board and the absolute worst of the many crooked managers that preceded and followed her. Construction with no proofs of the millions that were spent. One inept board after another covering up the previous boards mess and on the take just like the previous boards. At best 60% of the owners are solvent. The board had to buy back four units to keep the prices from going to zero where they belong. This place is a dung heap and should be condemned. The joke is they call it doom deck and the name fits. We had friends that lived in the building but were smart enough to sell a year ago. We just like to drive by when in town to see the latest collapse and marvel at the fact this travesty is still standing.

    All the bad stuff is true

    Run and we are not joking about this building. Lived here with my wife many years ago and was aghast at the condition of the building. The pool deck is a pile of rubble and there are no cars allowed to park under the building. It looks like one good wind and the whole place will collapse. We sold and got out while under the worst mgt was ruining the building. Ruining- that was intentional. The worst board and Rita the crook mgr. All the rumors are true- there aren't rumors. Maybe they got the mgt under control but this is 6 years of constant construction. We are happy to have left just as the nonsense hit the fan. I see the prices have fallen to near nothing and even with an economy coming back the prices here are still falling just like the building. A friend told me they are 30% solvent here. If you want to go into debt on a bad condo this is the one for you. Sad what they did to this place.

    Hates dogs

    A Steaming pile of dung. I would not let a dog defecate here let alone live here. I was told over half of the owners are in arrears. The building looks like it was imploded. I have not seen it unscaffolded in over five years. I told my agent I did not want to look here but he insisted he could get me a unit cheap since so many owners are near or in bankruptcy. I would be paying for all the people in arrears if I bought here. You could not pay me to own one. They have a problem with pets here. I was told they forbid them even thought the law says they must take them.

    Building and board are CONS like trump

    if you are into liars and cheats and being screwed this is the place to be. Ocean living at its nightmare hellish worst. I saw this a month ago and my head is still spinning. if you voted for trump this is the place for you. you will not see one dime in return for what they insist you pay in fees. they will lie and say one things and spend money on themselves and lie to you about it. like the trump administration this is a lesson to never ignore posts but do go with your gut. this is disgusting here for so many obvious reasons so dont be the walking dead and move here. money is better spent any place but here. like a previous viewer I fired my agent for the build up to this crap.
