Nice place with a great view and amenities, however, we were VERY disappointed in the cleanliness/condition of the unit.

To summarize the experience, checking in upon arrival with security at front gate went smooth and security guard was friendly and helpful. The building required a code to access the elevator - nice feature for security - but we weren't given the entire code, so it was frustrating for awhile. Fortunately, the building maintenance man helped us out.

Getting into the rental unit itself after obtaining access to elevator was smooth with their door lock code. We were pleased with the accuracy of the online description of the rental, however, upon settling in and closer inspection, we were disgusted with the moldy coffee maker, the human hair all over the floor (an assumption of human origin, as there was an abundance of approx 3-4 inch gray hairs), dusty dishes and cups, moldy shower door and tile, tumbleweeds/dust bunnies in master bath and burned out lightbulbs.

Fortunately, a vacuum was available and we put it to use. Not something someone wants to do to start their vacation!

Upon using the kitchen trash can under the sink, we noticed a dinner plate full of water behind the can catching water from a leaky sink. We took pics and emptied the water so we wouldn't be blamed for some kind of water damages. My wife put a larger bowl under the leak and within several hours, the bowl was full again! We called the rental property manager. No one answered, so we left a text for a call back due to our rental unit issues, as suggested in their voice mail prompt. We also sent pics of the issues, but did not hear back until the next day. Property manager eventually spoke to my wife, expressed her disappointment, apologized and offered to refund the cleaning fee, which we agreed to. She mentioned that she would call a house cleaner to enter the unit and clean up, which we declined, because we didn't want someone in there with our belongings and we had already cleaned up anyway. She said she would call a plumber to fix the sink which we agreed to, but a plumber never showed up and we dumped water from the bowl under the sink for the entire week that we were there. We also left a note when we left (for whomever) to empty the bowl under the sink.

When we booked this rental, we were given a typical list of "mandatory rules" and a list of procedures just to rent this unit.
My assertion is:
Property management includes rental "cleanliness and good condition." And if your profession is property management, and you actually expect continued business... cleanliness and condition is mandatory, as well.

Nice, quiet and secure complex. We loved our spectacular ocean views. The extra wrap around balcony offers views out the back as well. We loved the patio furniture! The unit was updated and had a comfortable bed in the master bedroom and has comfortable seating in the living room. We experienced a few minor issues upon arrival but these were taken care of immediately by Johanna from Vacasa. She was very responsive and friendly! The only complaint we had was being evacuated out a week early because of a hurricane! We have already booked our return trip for this unit during non hurricane season next year!

This place was wonderful and had everything we needed and more. The wrap around balcony was a big plus and gave the whole family plenty of room. The surf club community is a very quiet one and not many people on the beach, big plus for my family! The location is close enough to go to the bigger tourist areas when we wanted to and allowed us to also enjoy a more calm quiet area as well. The condo and location were more than we could have asked for and cant wait to go back!

This unit Surf Club 2608 is very old and not kept up to standards. Had problems with almost every major appliance in the kitchen. Freon leaking from Refrigerator / Freezer that required repair man. Dishwasher bottom of unit was full of brown moldy water that required a repair man. The Coffee maker did not work and required a new one. The cabinet was broken in the Master bath, the curtain rods would fall apart when trying to open curtains each morning. The patio door was very hard to open and close and its screen door kept falling off its tracks. The patio also had quite the deep accumulation of not cleaned in a long time bird poop. Most all of the items with remote controls did not work properly. Also, it was dreadful dealing with VACASA and our assigned person. She was the worst customer service I have ever seen! When called her on DAY 1 about Refrigerator / Freezer temps way too high she said "Don't you have a refridge at home? Don't you know how to set the temps? Don't worry about it" Well we had just purchased $250 in groceries and we WERE worried about it. AFTER 5 CALLS, she finally sent a repair man and sure enough it was leaking Freon and he said it was very old unit too. DAY 2 the repair man was back out there to fix the dishwasher with its bottom full of brown moldy water. VACASA even said he would fix coffee maker that did not work. I knew that the repair man worked on major appliances, NOT Coffee makers. Well again sure enough I was right and the repair man said he only works on major appliances NOT Coffee makers. He did look at coffee maker and totally agreed that it did not work. VACASA finally brought out a new coffee maker.VACASA gave us the WRONG Elevator Code, the WRONG Internet Network and the WRONG Internet Password. I finally had to deal directly with VACASA supervisor. DAY 4 the Cable TV and the Internet was out all day and into the night. I started calling VACASA at 9am and called them 6-10 times before ever hearing back from them on getting outages restored.On top of all that, Surf Club is 70% or more people that are RESIDENTS there and they DO NOT LIKE the VACATION RENTAL people coming on their turf. From the moment you step into Surf Club registration office they LITERALLY let you know that we are NOT here to help you and if you need anything you must contact VACASA. WOW!Surf Club in Palm Coast, FL is also very ISOLATED and BORING. The beach at Surf Club is the WORST BEACH I have ever experienced in my life. Our daughter got so many bumps, cuts and bruises from all the Coquina Rocks all over the beach and in the water too. In addition, in the evenings all those beach rocks have bugs crawling all over them in huge numbers and my wife did not even want to go back out there. We truly felt it was a TOTAL WASTE of our HARD EARNED MONEY going to Surf Club 2608 and having to deal with poor customer service with VACASA. Also, the very unfriendly RESIDENTS and Surf Club Office staff that make it obvious they do not want the Vacation Rental people on their turf.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review of your stay at Surf Club 2608. We are disappointed that you were not able to fully enjoy your stay. The check-in time for your stay was scheduled for 4pm (our standard check-in time). When you arrived at 12pm, the home had just recently been vacated by the prior guests, and our housekeeping team was on their way to clean the home and inspect the home to ensure everything was in working order. We are pleased that we were able to bring out a new coffee maker for you, and that our maintenance technician was able to come and repair the fridge for you the morning after you checked in. There were no prior reported issues with the codes to the elevator or the internet access information. We understand how frustrating an internet outage can be, and worked with Spectrum to restore service as quickly as possible. Thank you!

The condo was beautiful and the location couldn't have been better!! Plus the property manager did an excellent job of staying on top of the issue when there was a hiccup with the WiFi, to get it fixed as soon as possible. Would definitely stay here again!
