The decor is a little dated, but the location is great. Had to get maintenance help with the fireplace and the TV, but they came through.
Christine C. Oct 2018
Roomy, had everything we needed, right on the Prom.
Nancy E. Jul 2018
I gave this condo 4 stars because the furniture and TVs are dated, but for a long weekend at the beach, this place was perfect for us. Great view of the beach and ocean from the balcony. Housekeeping staff is outstanding; the place was spotlessly clean. Front desk staff is professional and friendly as well. Will definitely be back!

Everyone is sweet

Me and my family had a great stay. We enjoyed the condo suite, being able to relax on a couch after a fun filled day of activities. It was clean and very nice. Only thing I would have liked was a fan as it was hot inside with no a/c.

this place is about location location location
they room is very out dated -furniture- appliances-TVS are20+ years old the one in the bedroom is maybe 12" the living room one is a joke also. the patio furniture was dirty and couldn't use until cleaned. parts of the wallpaper peeling and the doors have paint peeling..the bathroom tub drains to the floor when taking a shower. very odd this place used be incredible-maybe its just room 310? partial ocean view was fair.
location is a ten!

The only good thing about our stay was Vacasa's exceptional customer service. This unit is a dump! The beds are rock hard. The couches have holes in them and are sagging in the middle. The hot water ran out after 1 1/2 showers. The wallpaper is peeling. The cooking supplies and other kitchen items are skimpy. The television is from the 90's. There is literally nowhere you can actually relax because all the furniture is so uncomfortable. We left after the first night- willing to forfeit the money we had already paid for the next two nights. We ended up staying in a hotel which was much more comfortable. When management found out about our experience they called us promptly and were very professional and genuinely apologetic. We will definitely use Vacasa again in the future. This unit should not be rented out again until the owners update it.
Manager response:
We appreciate this valuable feedback. We have spoken with the owners and blocked their calendar to start doing upgrades. They are looking into working with our design team for quality furniture/amenity replacement and design. We are sorry to see this guest was unable to enjoy their time here, though we do hope to have them again after updates are completed. Thanks!
Douglas H. Mar 2018
Location and view. Unit televisions are extremely outdated. The bedroom unit is surprisingly small. The hidden extra fees where higher than expected.
Ashleigh P. Feb 2018
Unless you have a ton of money to blow and book a oceanfront room that has updated furniture, I wouldn’t stay here again. We stayed for 2 nights and paid almost $300 for a room that had the oldest TVs I’ve seen in a long time, old furniture, a partial view (no, not every room has that oceanfront view they advertise on every room type, guess I should have caught on when I saw the same pic for each room type) but it was still an alright view, an extremely loud toilet and we even got to see the infrastructure of the building under the fireplace. Will stay elsewhere next time.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed. The toilet has been fixed, and we have advised the owner of the other comments.
Lynn S. Jan 2018
Good location right on the beach, balcony has a nice view of the ocean, apartment has plenty of room - note it is a shared bedroom. There is a nice pool and restaurants are all nearby.
Angie M. Dec 2017
I liked seeing the ocean from the balcony and the electric fire was very cozy. The beds were fine and I liked that the bedroom was cooler than the front room. The kitchen was clean and everything was as promised. We would stay again!
Jeffrey S. Nov 2017
A faulty TV very hard beds ask about pet policy can you leave your well behaved pet in the room if you leave your cell #
Manager response:
The TV has been inspected, and we apologize if it caused any issues during this stay. Guests are always welcome to call for assistance for these things. We do require that guests take their pets with them as these condos are close together and unattended pets can be nuisances to other guests. Thanks!
Shannon W. Nov 2017
Considering we booked last minute and the price was not obnoxiously high, we feel that we got a great deal. The housekeeping was perfect, it could not have been cleaner, and I'm really picky about that. The condo is old, the furnishings and carpet are old and dated, but for how much we paid, we are very happy. I would love it even more if they replaced the carpets, beds, and couches. I would pay more money to stay there again if that happened. We were so pleased with the cleanliness, location, and staff.
ALYSE A. Oct 2017
Really enjoyed this place. Very clean and quiet.
Judy D. Sep 2017
I think I covered it above but you could have softer beds, replace kitchen thing, improve the parking, and not charge double the price in fees.
Bettie L. H. Sep 2017
Enjoyed our stay so glad dog friendly. Great promenade for walking
Darci H. Sep 2017
Ok view. Great walking location to seaside. Condo needs supplies and work. Plus the comforters were dirty and disgusting. Couldn't use them.
Hollie C. Jul 2017
Very disappointing! We stay at Sand and Sea every year and this unit was not a pleasant place to stay. I highly recommend Sand and Sea and Vacasa but NOT unit 310. Customer service at Sand and Sea and Vacasa is excellent. I highly recommend the owners update the unit or charge about $70 a night. Besides the all around shabbines, I could not believe that TV. They could at least put a flat screen in the unit.
Manager response:
We're very sorry the guest had such a negative experience during their stay. The property manage did meet with the guests before they checked out and was able to listen to their concerns and begin addressing them toward a quick resolution. Thank you.
Dennis W. Jul 2017
The interior is a but dated, but this place has an excellent location
Timothy G. Jul 2017
We have been coming to Seaside for our anniversary every other year and decided to try something other than a hotel. Even though the condo is older it is very well kept up and quiet. The room we rented also took pets which is a plus for us. We will definitely stay here again.
Kay J. Jun 2017
The apt/condo was very outdated and dingy. Would recommend the property in general but not this particular apt.
Manager response:
We are working with the owner on updating the unit. Thanks!
Katie K. Jun 2017
This location is amazing! Though our unit was outdated with her in a chain and Clore it was a great experience overall.
Kris T. May 2017
This was a pleasant spot for our family (including little kids and dogs) to call home while we explored Seaside. Close to the beach, big balcony, fireplace, pool, essential basic amenities. Not fancy or modern, but comfortable, clean, and spacious for our sweet little beach vacation.
Michelle I. May 2017
Awesome getaway for our little family! Thank you!
Polly L. Feb 2017
Not totally modern, but clean and cozy. Perfect for a family in a great location
Amy S. Nov 2016
Sand and Sea was great for what we were looking for. We wanted a homebase close to the beach and the promenade. The staff was very kind and very helpful.
Vladimir T. Oct 2016
The apartment had everything we (retired couple) needed, including the dishwasher. We stayed inside for one night and it was nice to have the sea view from the balcony. The parking was convenient, the internet connection stable. The 3-mile promenade was wonderful, we used it for long walks in the breeze, both in the mornings and nights. Seaside is a beautiful, clean town, many eateries to all tastes. Lots of compliments go to the reception personnel, especially Elizabeth, extremely helpful, thank you!
Steven M. Sep 2016
Old building smells but ocean front so convenient.
Dean F. Sep 2016
Great location the room was big but the whole place is outdated. Be aware that the hide-a-bed is broken so if you have more than one couple you both will have to share the bedroom.
Paulette E. Aug 2016
this is the neddle in the hay stack. have been staying in seaside each summer and finally found the beat place to stay. great check in and out. great view of the beach and all you need to bring is food if you want to cook. the kitchen has everything you need, also have great food just 4 blocks away a very short walk to shopping and family fun. the staff is great.
Jackie P. Aug 2016
The staff was friendly and accommodating. Can't beat the location -just far enough away from the crowd but steps from everything.
Molly N. Aug 2016
Such a great way to make memories with the family!
Andrea S. Jul 2016
We very much enjoyed staying at Sand and Sea: The Driftwood at Seaside! Our condo was furnished and comfortable. We loved spending our days at the beach and cooking together in the evenings. The close proximity to the beach allowed our two small children to head back to the condo to nap, giving us a stress-free vacation. Thank you!
John S. Jul 2016
We were very dissatisfied with our stay. From the stained carpet and drapes; to the peeling wallpaper; to the scuffed walls and mismatched, old bedding; not to mention the furniture and furnishings from the early 1980's, there was no thought or care given to the comfort and enjoyment of your guests. It is obvious that it is all about how little the owner can do to barely maintain the property while still bringing in rental income.

The hide abed, advertised online, was broken and there was a worn sign on it that stated "do not open." There was a circuit breaker that went out in the kitchen and main room, leaving no wifi and only one outlet. There was nowhere to reset it, as a renter.

The property management company was gracious and helpful, but they can only do the owner's bidding. This place needs a major overhaul. Disappointing, as it is in a lovely location, in a beautiful town.
Manager response:
We apologize that this stay was disappointing for this guest. The sofa bed is no longer advertised as it is no longer functioning as a bed. The breaker has been addressed so that everything is up and running again properly, and we will bring the furniture to the attention of the owner for their consideration.
Laurie M. Jul 2016
We so enjoyed our stay! A previous review said your beds were too firm, but our family found them to be very comfortable. Your corner unit was quiet too. We'll be back!
Lisa S. Jun 2016
Overall this was a great place to stay!
Faye C. Apr 2016
Was excellent service and the place is fantastic.
Tim W. Feb 2016
Enjoyed the stay despite the fact that the beds were very firm. Great location within walking distance to all the shops.
