Great stay.

Location of house is TERRIFIC. And it has had an exterior facelift that also looks TERRIFIC and super beachy. Love the big deck and playroom. In all I give the house itself a 5, but the cleaning crew gets a 2.

Pots/pans We’re not washed and still had burnt on Food (lots of burnt on food, not just lazy beach guest dishwashing, actual crust). And the forks/spoons the same. I think pervious guest did not run machine and cleaning folks put things away dirty.

And although the house has 3 pullout sofas in the living room, there was not pillows/sheets/blankets for them. We had 7 people total, and I would say it would be a stretch to say “11 can stay comfortably”.

And not sure if there is something in writing I missed, but should be noted that trash day is Monday. The outside cans were overflowing when we arrived and I had to call to have them emptied by maintenance so we would have someplace to put ours. There should be a sign/notice for guests to roll them out Sunday night. Neighbors were very (VERY) friendly and told us the trash date. Two said the home should probably upgrade to 3 trash cans.

There should be some sort of “guest welcome book/sign” that tells us where to access beach, trash day, maintenance/property management phone number.

Make sure you check you map when you get close to Pensacola. There is an Ariola Ave and an Ariola Drive. Google maps got us mixed up, and one of our guests as well - and our car died on day one and we needed a tow, AAA also went to the wrong address.

Last kind of negative, (and I KNOW it’s a beach house and this there is sand about), but the driveway and under the house had not been blown/swept for quite some time and so we basically had a beach-worth of sand to contend with. The driveways of neighboring homes were clear, ours was full of sand and garbage debris from the overflowing cans when we arrived. We picked up a good bit of the trash, but could not conquer the sand with the “corn-broom“ that is there. Maintenance should clear the drive in between guests if possible.

Pluses: Great layout. New appliances. Terrific location. Friendly neighbors. Dog friendly. Terrific water pressure. Beds are comfy. Play/Gameroom Is HUGE and comfortable. Big Deck/Grill (with extra propane!). Terrific A/C! HUGE master bath. HUGE pantry. On a quiet street right off the main drag, so it’s super convenient.
Other than a few hiccups though, it was terrific. The house is great and we would come back and stay again!
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize the home was not properly prepared for you and do wish you had called so we could have sent our team back out to deal with the matter. We will follow-up with housekeeping and hope to see you again!

The house was wonderful oasis for our family. Great deck, good space, literally 15 feet to the beach and a great time for everyone. The extra room on the bottom floor was a wonderful surprise with a huge tv, ping pong table and a relaxing space.

Beach right in front of the house is wonderful, blue green waters, white sand, private with just neighborhood families. The house is minutes to Pensacola Boardwalk, restaurants and activities.

The house does not come fully stocked with basic cooking supplies (basic spices, garbage bags or other things) so be prepared to do a shopping trip on your first day.

Vacasa also provides excellent service while we were there. We had an issue with Fridge leaking water and they sent someone out right away.

We loved our stay in this cute little house.
