Juan R. Jan 2020
Everything was amazing but the WiFi never worked. It would never appear when we tried looking for it. But other than that the house was fantastic, everything about it was good.
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Juan! We apologize that the wifi didn't work for your stay. We have updated the information in our system and hope to host you again soon!

Spacious and close to the beach.
Colleen R. Sep 2019
Really enjoyed this beach house. Lot of room, close to beach and very nice house.
Maria V. Sep 2019
Our whole family had an awesome time. There was exactly 20 of us and never felt that we were on top of each other.
The home was clean and fully stocked. Comfy beds.
Easy walk to beach. There was a sweet 15 party next door. But we enjoyed the music.

If i had to pick one thing to complain about was the lack of furniture for downstairs.. but we just used our own..
Looking forward to renting again

Really cute and inviting. There was plenty of room for our large family. Real close walking distance to the beach.
Monica A. Jul 2019
I booked this for a family reunion and was beyond pleased with the house, location and overall experience. The booking was easy and simple and the house was EXACTLY what we expected. I would absolutely stay here again.

We came to Crystal Beach for a getaway with family. It was very nice to have a place with everything we needed.
Chelsye H. Jun 2019
Such a pretty house with so much room!! Perfect for our 4 families. Amazing view and so close to the beach. The front door is difficult to close and lock but everything else was great!!
Manager response:
Chelsye, we are so happy you enjoyed this lovely home! Thank you for your feedback. We reached out to the local manager and she provided the following instructions for locking the door: This is a storm door with two doors that work together. To unlock you turn the key to the left. To unlock you pull the handle up on the left and let it drop then turn the key to the right. If it does not lock it could be because the handle on the door on the right needs to be pulled up and released to engage the locks on the top and the bottom. We look forward to hosting you again!

This home is so close to the beach, it might as well be said it's beach front! It's a football field's length from beach. From the deck, you have a nice ocean view and the breezes will keep you cool even on a hot day!
We have a family beach get-together every year, and so far, this has been our favorite house. Plenty of room inside and out. Ample parking. Outdoor shower to keep the sand out of the house (not fond of walking on sand inside, haha). Kitchen layout works for several people hanging out and to do food prep. Enough room for 15 of us to not feel crowded at all.
When I arrived, there was a Vacasa employee there doing a guest arrival inspection, and she did a great job because everything was clean and ready for us. She was very pleasant and professional, made sure we had everything we needed, and then bid us a happy vacation. Even though the check-in process is "self check-in, it was nice to see that there are people on staff in the area in case something is needed.
Oh, also there is grocery/souvenir/hardware/gas station within a 5 minute drive. We had forgotten a few things, and it wasn't a chore to drive to the nearest store.
Such a fantastic place, and we had a fun time!

We loved the layout of this house. It fit all 20 of us comfortably. The location of the beach is a very short 1 to 2 min walk. It has a beautiful view of the water from the huge covered deck. We loved it so much and plan to return. Just an FYI for anyone who plans on traveling to this location and going out to eat. Do Not go to a place called Tiki bar and grill. The food is terrible and they overcharged us more than $100. A lady came by our table on her way out and warned us to check our bill. Sure enough she was right. There are plenty of reviews about Tiki Bar and Grill on Yelp and Trip advisor with the same complaints. Just a friendly warning. I recommend Stingrees! Wonderful food! Just a little side note. You will not be disappointed if you book this house. One of the best vacation places we have stayed!

Nice Home! We really enjoyed our short stay here! It was really nice to have a quiet and comfortable place to relax for a couple of nights before our wedding cruise. The beach is close, and we had a nice view of the beach from the balcony. The rooms were cozy and provided plenty of space. Overall, I would definitely recommend and would consider coming back! This house is great place for a relaxing family getaway. Wish we had booked to stay longer.

A couple of things that would help improve this home:
1) Curtains in the upstairs bedroom
2) Blinds on the window over the master bathroom toilet
3) Clearer instructions on the hurricane door locking system- as the instructions provided were a run-on sentence that included how to unlock and lock. (Just needs to be a tad bit easier to read)

I would also like to mention- this house is not handicapped friendly, so if you or any of your guests have a hard time going up and down stairs... I might would not recommend this home, as you have several steps just to get into the house.

Other than that, we loved our stay! Thank you for a perfect place to relax and recharge for our cruise! :)

Loved it!
Victor H. Feb 2019
The weather was nice and cold during our visit, but the house was warm and inviting. Perfect for a family get-together. We are planning to return very soon!
Emily L. Feb 2019
Perfect house, great neighborhood, breathtaking view. Easy transaction. This will not be the last time we rent this house!
Grace P. Dec 2018
We had a wonderful weekend stay at A Great View! The house was big enough to house my friends and family. The rooms were big and spacious.And, we just loved the layout of the house. There was enough parking for all our vehicles. And, we had a great view of the beach from the balcony! I celebrated my birthday there, and everyone had a wonderful time. The kitchen could use new pots, though, and more serving bowls. Otherwise, I highly recommend this place.

Few minor things that were not available that could have been great if available:
Clean/empty trash bins - when we arrived at the beach house, bin was full and mess around it. i called them 1st thing in the morning, and they responded to the situation, but only to clean up, and not to empty trash bins. so for 2 days, our trash was piling up outside the house.

Broom was the only thing we found to clean the floor - Dust pan would be really helpful!!! and vacuum for easy cleaning. we still managed to clean the house as much as we can.

aside from all of that, we had a GREAT time staying there! Definitely will rent from them again.
Nicole B. Oct 2018
This house was BEAUTIFUL! Plenty of room for all the 16 women that were there. Distance to the beach was amazing! Very comfortable to spend time in the house.
Chris S. Oct 2018
Walking distance from the beach. Beautiful home.

Even though it rained all week we had a great vacation. The house was such a treat!

We took some of our youth for a 4 day stay at this amazing beach cabin. It's as beautiful as the pictures show and the view was even better than we imagined. The walk to the beach took no time at all. There was plenty of parking for all of us (5 vehicles). There were 13 of us sleeping there. Some of us, of course, had to bunk together.
The shower in one of the bathrooms had a drain that wouldn't drain. The management took care of that for us. We also didn't have sheets on 2 of the beds. That was also fixed right away. The pots and pans aren't in the best shape so if you want to cook, you might consider bringing your own. The frig space, microwave, coffee maker and other kitchen elements were great. There are plenty of pillows which was very nice. Excellent space for everyone. We couldn't figure out the TVs except we did plug in the xbox - but we didn't really need netflix or anything because we were there for the beach. The ferry took no time at all and there are stores nearby if you forget something. I highly recommend this spot. Great neighborhood. Kind management.
PS- bring bug spray if you walk on the beach at night... those mosquitoes will eat you alive :)
Khuong B. Jun 2018
Closed to the beach. Big family room for gatherings.
Natalie L. May 2018
Very close to the beach and loved being able to walk and wake up to the beach. Enough room for everyone in our group. Only issue we had was the tv having a code issue but that was fixed. Would recommend it for family getaway!
Kasey P. Apr 2018
The house is beautiful and has a fantastic view of the ocean. There is plenty of room with all the comforts of home! The only criticism I could think of is that there wasn't enough trash bags for our large crowd. We were enjoying the view and peace and quiet too much to make it to the grocery store to get more trash bags :) Overall, I highly recommend this house for your next vacation!

The location
Robert R. Mar 2018
Our primary concern when renting this property was the lack of reviews. No worries! This is a beautiful home with great location to walk to the beach.

Things were clean and in order.

Catherine S. Mar 2018
I loved that I could watch the ocean from the porch and everyone was very nice.
