The house was very nice however there was no AC and the bedrooms were very hot.

We loved this location and the layout of the home. However, the home is in need of upkeep. The front door was loose, the kitchen knobs were loose, the outside grill was full of water, some areas needed to be cleaned better, and the house smelled very musty.

The house was spacious and clean. The outdoor area was perfect and the walk to the beach was short. The house had bikes you could borrow to get to the beach faster. We had a great stay!

We loved the house.. The layout and bedrooms, kitchen, dining and living area were terrific for two families. Outside was not great. When w arrived the pool water level was 2 feet lower than it should have been, not cared for, not chemically treated, very dirty, the grounds were messy, old and broken pool toys were here and there, the deck was dirty, with chairs strewn about. The pool size wasn't great for older kids. Additionally we didn't get a house code to get in when we arrived, the email didn't have the info due to some communication and technical failure, but the property manager was very easy to get ahold of and responsive and got us in the house right away. Overall it was a great stay, with few bumps.
Manager response:
David, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We apologize for the condition of the pool and the exterior grounds. Please know this is not our standard grade of cleanliness and presentation. The pool and exterior have since been addressed. We hope to get another chance to impress you in the future!

We loved our stay at this beach house! The five minute walk was ideal! The pool (about five foot depth) was large and had a great deck with amazing views of the lagoon.

The only negatives were that the washing machine does not ring out clothes, so they came out sopping wet. Washing towels was virtually impossible, which was was frustrating as we cycled through them pretty quickly. Having four full bathrooms was helpful!

The cabinets could use a good scrubbing and the linens on the beds could be updated as they kept coming off the beds.

I would recommend this house. It is in a great area with a beautiful beach!!
Manager response:
Hi, Lisa! Thank you for telling us about your Vacasa experience. This property has a new laundry center, we have advised the owner of your frustrations with the linens, and the home has been scheduled for a deep clean. Please don't hesitate to reach out about these things during your stay so we can assist you. We hope to see you again!

Our stay at 181 Mooring Buoy was excellent! Home was great for our family of 11. Enough room for every. Private pool was a definite plus for our 7 year old grandsons. Super short walk to the beach...everything super convenient!

House space was good. Great location. Short walk to private beach access. Palmetto Dunes very nice. When we arrived the side light in the pool was floating in the water. Reported and pool company came to fix it. Their fix lasted less than a day and light came out again. Also didn’t look like pool had been cleaned or pool deck cleaned up before we arrived.

Spacious and very clean home in Palmetto Dunes. Nice layout, comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen. Kids spent hours in the pool. Was alittle disappointed there was no dock on the lagoon like many lagoon homes have. Also it appears on the listing that most of the bedrooms have tv's, but two of them were "DVD only" - no cable.

We loved the location and the layout of the house. Very clean
Marion T. Apr 2019
The pictures dont do the big open layout justice. We put 8 grown men at the table and had room to eat. It's a split 3 level house. But very spacious. Was really very impressed with the space layout and the condition of everything.

We loved this vacation. This house is close to the beach has enough bathrooms and bedrooms for a large family. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We plan to come back next year!!!!!

We've been coming to HHI for a few years, and this home is perfect! Plenty of space, the bedrooms are well separated from the living areas, great sunroom, quick walk to the beach, and a great sized pool. We will be back!
