The white, sandy beach and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico will be a stone's throw away, all you have to do is step outside your getaway and walk 350 yards down the road to finally dig your toes in the sand. Take the opportunity to work on your tan or simply relax and play in the water just like you've always wanted to. However, Miramar Beach has so much to offer than the beach only. Scenic Gulf Drive offers a plethora of local restaurants such as The Whale's Tail Beach Bar & Grill, Royal Palm Grille, and The Surf Hut. If you're planning on getting some souvenirs for your loved ones back home, Paradise Found is a short walk away. Find the hottest sales at Silver Sands Premium Outlets, only one and a half miles away. This shopping center offers 110 designer and name-brand outlet stores. Three miles west is the Emerald Bay Golf Club–if you're an avid golfer don't hesitate to pack your clubs and bags! Are you and your guests thrill-seekers? Then make sure to visit Big Kahuna's Water & Adventure (seven miles away). This is primarily a water park featuring over 40 water attractions. However, you can also find several thrill ride attractions and a miniature golf course.

Everything was great. Great view, clean! Only thing is I wish the comforters were thicker or had extras. After the sun, the air was cold...but my family didn't want to turn the air down. I froze lol.

Pros:
* Great views from the veranda.
* Air conditioning worked great.
* Overall space was pretty clean upon arrival.
* Primary bed in bedroom was comfortable.
* Bathrooms were very clean. Plenty of bath towels, etc. Be sure to bring your own shampoo, conditioner and even consider a bar of soap. Didnt see a hair dryer.
* Kitchen was well appointed with necessary gear...pans, bowls, various dishes, glasses, etc. Was also very clean. Refrigerator worked really well along with the freezer / ice maker. Electric cooking definitely not the best, but operated well. We washed our dishes each night vs. using the dishwasher. Didnt want to buy a bunch of dishwasher soap. Be sure to bring your own if you dont want to buy there.
* Dining table as shown in photos worked out well.
* TV / cable worked well.
* Internet speed was outstanding...average 120m/bit down, 125 m/bit up (yes, 125 m/bit up, not kidding. Tested it numerous times during the visit with speedtest.net). You can even still access the wireless network at the beach if near Seascapes.
* Outside veranda provided great view. Six chairs and two small tables available.
* Local grocery store was only approx four miles further west (Publix on US 98). Was well stocked. Also a number of decent local restaurants within two miles. Both thai restaurants just down the street on 98 were really good (support local businesses). So was the sushi place next to the thai place...do the $20 all you can eat..well worth it).

Cons:
* Floors had not been swept with obvious sand and other dirt on the floor. Had to sweep it myself within the first 15 minutes being there.
* Bedroom ceiling fan...only one wall switch that controls both the fan on/off and light on/off. If you want the light off but the fan on, you have to climb up on the bed and use the pull chain to turn it off/on.
* Kitchen: Only one trash bag was provided for a five night stay. So, consider bring more. Also, they don't recycle which is a bummer.
* Living Room: The green sofa shown in the photo is not what is in the unit. The one currently in the unit which is tan is stained and obviously had not been cleaned in quite a long time. Let's just say don't plant your face in the sofa cushions. Ceiling fan has two speeds...super high / fast and off. The fan is also not balanced, so once it gets up to speed, it begins squeaking with each revolution. Became really irritating after a while. The dining room chairs are on rollers. One of the chairs is missing a wheel. So, heads up if you are a party of four.
* Outside veranda had sand and metal paint chips on the floor upon arrival. Obviously had not been swept when previously cleaned. The four metal chairs and two metal tables are in definite need of refurbishment. Be careful if you have a youngster who puts stuff in their mouth.

Regarding the pool, it looked nice, was never really crowded.

Getting to the beach was an easy 5-10 minute walk across the small lake elevated wooden walkway. There was a room outside the unit entrance that had a beach chair, but no beach umbrella. Bring your own if you can. Cost is $45 full day / $30 half day for an umbrella and two lounge chairs at the beach if you want to rent those.

In this day of social distancing, it was obvious most family vacationers didn't care at all about COVID risks, especially with the large increase in daily Florida infections reported during our stay. The elevator lobby was constantly packed with people. I strongly recommend you bring facemasks with you to wear in the public areas and elevators of the building. Building staff didnt seem to make any effort to actively encourage guests to respect the social distancing requirements.

One last suggestion...the Surf Hut restaurant down the road might seem like a good place to take the family, but be warned, its a tourist trap. Prices are really high, and again, no one really seemed to be interested in social distancing there. The place was over 100% capacity as commented by our waiter Saturday evening, June 20.

We will consider returning again from Houston.
Manager response:
