We arrived and immediately had to call in to report only 3 out of 4 pool bracelets were in the house. This is because they warn you that they’ll charge you $25 for each missing bracelet. Then at bedtime (about 9:30 pm) we discovered the sofa bed was broken. The head of the bed was completely collapsed. Upon speaking to customer service they assured me Maintanence would call to fix the issue. No returned my call. Ever. We had no choice but to place the mattress on the floor for my boys to be able to sleep for two nights. I texted with a customer service associates several times between Friday and Saturday and no one ever came or even bothered to ask where my sons were sleeping since the accommodations we paid for were not delivered. I have never had a management company on any level completely disregard a quests needs like Vacasa did for me and my family. Never again. The broken sofa bed was one of many other issues in this house. It is supposed to accommodate 4 guests but only accommodates 2. The living room is crowded with furniture as well as the dining room. The only light switch that actually worked was in the kitchen. We found several areas in the bathroom that had clearly not been cleaned. There were smears of unknown remnants on the toilet paper holder, walls, and shower curtain. The closet door was broken. The front door was filthy and the house has a nursing home smell to it. With zero consideration towards proper sleeping accommodations, I wouldn’t expect them to clean properly or make repairs elsewhere. This was a huge disappointment and even now as I write this review no one has called to address any of my concerns. Total disappointment.
Manager response:
Hello Matthew, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize for the issues you had during your stay, as this is not the high level of guest satisfaction and cleanliness that we hold ourselves to. Our local manager did confirm they did reach out during your stay to repair the sofa bed, but maintenance was advised not to come out due to a dog being at the home. We did provide compensation for the inconvenience, as we should have repaired the sofa bed before your arrival. The sofa bed, light switches, and the closet door have been repaired. Our local manager has been provided with your valuable feedback regarding the cleanliness of the home to address this with our housekeeping team. We apologize for the inconvenience and frustrations. We do hope you will give us another chance to impress you in the future.

Right in the middle of everything Destin. Unfortunately, it felt cramped with all the furniture they provide. We also had some cleanliness concerns the first night, but Vacasa did refund us the cleaning fee for the entire stay. The unit is also tucked back in the corner, so not a whole lot of traffic, felt very safe. They also provided a little dishwasher soap and laundry soap, the washer/dryer combo was very nice. All in all a good deal.

Location easy to find and close to public beaches. Upstairs neighbor was a bit loud in the very early am hours. The bed frame was also broken which made a dip in the middle of the bed. Otherwise, it was great! Equipped with all that we needed!

Great location, extremely clean. Condos and appliances are dated in the kitchen and the bed in the room had a big dip in it. The owners have done a great job with cleanliness so that balanced the negatives out. Plenty of silverware, pots, and pans. Check out was at 11am which was nice! Neighborhood and neighbors were quiet and respectful. I would stay again if they updated the bed in the room. Also, if the owner could tell me where they got the bed throw on the bed, that would be great! I felt like taking it with me!!!

We had issue with our shower door being broken our entire stay, but it wasn’t a huge issue, as we were able to still use it. Vacasa was extremely helpful and offered us whatever we needed throughout our stay for the inconvenience. If you ever need anything contact Vacasa because they are quick to respond and very helpful. I rated a four only because it seemed like the cleaning wasn’t done very well, but other than that it was a nice play to stay! The interior was beautifully decorated, and I love that they left samples of everything like dish washer tablets, washer pods, dryer sheets, paper towels, toilet paper, towels, etc. Would stay again!
