Wonderful. Alex with Vacasa is a rock star. Helpful, polite and great. 501 is worth the cost. Great trip!

Unit 501 at Huntington by the Sea is a beautiful unit at a much-desired low density property. The common areas are very spacious, well appointed, and comfortable! The master suite with its huge bedroom and bath are better than most personal homes provide! The two additional baths are clean and attractive with current tiling. All of these features alone would make this a five star property.

However the three additional guest bedrooms need attention. None of the chest of drawers in any of the bedrooms properly worked. Drawers were stuck, or would completely fall out when pulled. Very rickety. The ceiling Light/fan fixtures had little 6 inch pulls which you could not reach without a ladder, and there was no ladder in the unit. We went to Lowe’s to buy long pulls to attach in all three bedrooms so you could operate the light and fan separately. We left them behind! You’re welcome!

The bed in the king size bed guestroom was more along the lines of what you would find in a Motel 6, not a $1000 a night property. The bottom boxsprings were much smaller than the top mattress. And the top mattress was like a taco. Two people could not comfortably sleep in that bed without rolling to the center on top of each other. For us, personally, the fourth bedroom that was set up more like a second living area would be much better served with actual bedding, rather than small bunkbeds which only are acceptable for kids. An adult cannot stay in this room. We were four adult couples, so this condo, while four bedrooms, does not work for four adult couples.

With updated guest bedrooms, this unit could be rented 365 days a year regardless of the nightly price. Huntington By The Sea is like no other along Miramar Beach. There is no other property with the low density and low number of rentals that Huntington By The Sea has. This alone makes this unit and complex a definite repeat visit.

Two of the four couples have owned units in this building previously, so it holds a special place in our hearts. We have lived in other locations in Miramar Beach, and vacationed in many places other than Huntington By The Sea, but there is nothing like this property! We will continue to come back regardless of the unit condition!

Our family of 11 love this location. Secure parking lot, great pool and beautiful beach. Vacasa quickly addressed any problems we had with the condo. Certainly book this a third time.

We had a wonderful time. We made these reservations in early June, because our Europe trip was cancelled due to covid. We determined to try to stay away from large crowds and we did. The beach is private for Huntington by the Sea, the pool was never crowded. We got take out and used the grocery store.

The condo is absolutely gorgeous. Four bedroom that housed our family of eight perfectly.

The beach chairs were set up everyday for us. And they were spaced adequately for social distancing. The beach and water were perfect.

Ours kids had a great time, even if our other trip was cancelled.

The kitchen was well supplied, the only thing I would add is a vacuum. I also got a little frustrated with the way the lights were wired in the rooms. We had to figure out the switches. Also, the toilet in the master is hooked to hot water instead of cold, and you get a steam session on your rear, when the tank refills. Also, for the high cost of the condo, please supply more toilet paper, dish detergent, laundry detergent, and trash bags. There were only two trash bags, and two rolls of toilet paper.

The individual condo is very updated compared to the outside look of the condos. The view from the top floor is wonderful as well.

Thanks for letting us escape Missouri, and social distance in your condo. We had a great time!!

Love the update! We have been here several times. Great layout. Huntington By The Sea is my first choice of places to stay in the entire Destin area!

Great location, very quite and plenty of room! Huge master bath and wonderful views! The pool guy and beach service were very helpful and kept things looking great! Nice to have two chairs and umbrella furnished.

OK now for the tweaks... I am a contractor and very picky however for $1 million condo on the beach and at over $700 a night (off season) I would suggest the following be upgraded and repaired. First in for most the unit has a cheap builder grade dishwasher that is relatively useless! The kitchen sink faucet could be upgraded with better flow. Paper and towel racks in the bathrooms need to be properly secured many of them were loose and falling off. The master bathroom shower control valve was installed backwards and hot and cold water are opposite. Some of the extra blankets and sheets should be checked by housekeeping and laundered after each use. The unit only had a small broom and dust pan. A good quality vacuum for all the floors would be extremely helpful as sand is always present...beach front. And finally a good electrician for a day could help ensure that all receptacles are working and switches are identified as to what they turn off and on.

I gave it 4 stars and we would certainly stay there again. But for very little cost and effort this could be a five-star condo!





Manager response:
We are glad to see you were pleased with your experience despite some setbacks. Maintenance has taken care of the towel racks, the property manager has purchased a vacuum and broom for the unit, and we are discussing possible upgrades with the owner. Thank you!

Beach front, easy parking, lots of room and friendly neighbors. My grandchildren have grown up here for thirteen years.

We loved our stay at Huntington By The Sea Condo 501 this year! The condo and building itself were great. We are already booked for next year.
