We enjoyed everything about being here.

Had a good time in my one night here. The place is nice, the floors are very pretty and the decor is exactly what you expect from a beach condo. The couch and chaise lounge are very shabby and the master bed is very hard. The toilet in the master bathroom has the wrong size seat on it and it slides a bit. Most off-putting was the dust above the stove on the cabinets. Not just a little, but dark black and caked on. Seems like whoever cleans either can't reach or doesn't bother.

Beach access is described as "directly across the street" but when I was here the two closest walk-overs don't even reach the sand and the beach was inaccessible from them. Go down to Flamingo Dr. and use the public access there.

I have stayed in VRBO locations for over 15 years and this is the first time I have been disappointed. The actual structure and location are fine but the finishing and supplies are below par. For example, there is a blanket on the couch covering a stain. The furniture is old and worn and just uncomfortable. The queen bed in the master had a double size topper which was not comfortable and made it more like a double. The toilet seat did not match the size of the toilet. There was a broken outlet plate in the dinning area.

We considered just packing up and heading home but decided we would stay. And then the ants move in. My daughter laid down on one of the twin beds and woke up literally covered by over 100 ants! Luckily we did have Benadryl with us. I contacted the management number and after several several calls, received a reply. We asked to be moved but the request was refused. They wanted to come in and spray, which is great, but we all have sensitivities to chemicals and the smell would have had all of us experiencing an allergic reaction. I was told the company manager said no because the chemicals are safe, even though the local person did admit everyone is different.

The next response was that they would not help us because I was refusing to let them enter the unit. That was not the case. I never refused I just made it clear that the chemicals would make us ill and we would have to leave.

We ended up making a reservation with another company and moving but did not receive any help or partial refund or even empathy for the situation. This was an unexpected expense. Vacasa was not supportive. I am not sure why a company that is supposed to be reputable would demonstrate so little concern for a customer.
The irony of the whole thing is we chose this unit because we were considering purchasing it. This negative experience has helped us make our decision.

Location is very quiet and enjoyable. Some new furniture and bathroom fixtures are needed.

The home was very clean, and comfortable! It was also larger than I expected and there was plenty of space for a family of 6.
Michael G. Aug 2019
A nice property with a wonderful view of the bay and access to a nice pool.

Great despite a rainy weekend

Vacasa is great- we had a problem with the lock on the door (very likely to be user-error) when we arrived late in the evening on Thanksgiving and when we called, we got a real live person (I am very sorry she was working on the holiday) who was super helpful and able to solve our problem in less than 3 minutes. It turned what would have been a stressful and incredibly inconvenient issue into a non-issue. Very satisfied.

This condo was very clean and overall was quite lovely. We did have an issue with the entry code not working, but the management company was very helpful. The location is great and it was peaceful. We really enjoyed our time.
Eric B. Aug 2018
This place is very nice with a wonderful view of the gulf. Very nice relaxing stay. Only complaint was the couch and chaise were old and showing some age. Those need to be replaced with something new. Other than that it was a great place to stay.
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. This home is in the process of being sold so no further updates to the home will take place.

Great location away from the big crowds, perfect for surf fishing or wading, or just hanging out on the beach. Views from the balacany are amazing.
