This place was right across from the beach. The onsight restaurant was very good and the staff was pleasant.

Everyday we were killing roaches in our room. Other than that we enjoyed our stay!

We will have the unit treated for pests to ensure this is not a reoccurring issue for future guests. We appreciate your feedback and we hope to have an opportunity to better impress you in the future.

The unit was exactly as pictured and served our needs for the stay. Large shower, private balcony area, and 2nd floor unit were all perks of this rental. Our experience with resort where the unit is located was another matter. The staff was unfriendly, unhelpful, and in some cases downright rude. They do not allow golf cards or electric scooters on the property (a standard mode of transportation for the area) but think nothing of it to have grocery shopping carts littering the entry ways and common areas.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Stephanie. We're delighted to know that you enjoyed our home and found it to be suitable for your group. While we do not manage the resort staff, we apologize for any negative experience you had and we will be sure to notify the appropriate people. We appreciate the opportunity to host you and we hope that you'll stay with us again.

Easy check in. Very clean. Bed was very soft and comfy! Definitely would recommend. Great access to the beach.

Very clean and the bed was so comfortable! Being on the first floor was nice, and free beach chairs were included which was awesome! I would definitely stay here again
Natasha T. Mar 2022
Similar to a Airbnb, great amenities, other than personal preference things were great! Some things to note: bed was super soft, so if you need more support, you’ll have a mild backache. Also, might be user error but all the water coming from the taps and shower were scalding hot. Not sure if that was a single unit issue, or user error. The heated pool was nice since the ocean was too cold during our stay in late march. Short walk to beach was also a super big plus!

I've read reviews of this palce that complained about the view, but for the winter rate that I paid for a month this was a GREAT VALUE. Room is on the same level as the gym, the pool/hot tub area and the bridge that goes over to the beach bar. Also on the same level as the restaurant which provides very good food affordable drinks and excellent service. Very close location to all grocery stores, coffee shops etc. All in all a value!

The staff at Surfside was friendly and very quick to help me out with a couple of things I needed. The room was as pictured and everything worked. The location is great and the beach it is across from is beautiful. We loved it and would stay again in a heartbeat.
Melissa E. Oct 2021
The room was clean spacious and relaxing. The staff was so friendly and always willing to help. I would highly recommend. Can’t wait to come back!

I gave this home 4/5 stars. I booked this room because they were right on the beach and it wasn't very expensive.
We got there early for our vacation because the weather wasn't going to be cooperating for most of our stay. We were able to park on the property and go to the beach across the street until our check-in time at 4 pm. At check-in, the receptionist was very friendly. When my husband and I were ready to go put our things in our room at the end of the day, we realized we had no idea how to find our room. We thought L stood for the lobby, but all the lobby rooms started with a G. I ended up calling security to try to help us find our room. It was only the guy's second day on the job and he tried, but it didn't help. Eventually, we found it. So if you stay here and your room starts with an L it's on the first floor. Not the lobby. I didn't like that the reception desk is not open until later. This would've helped with room directions since it wasn't a normal room number. The room was decent for what we wanted. We didn't expect to spend much time there. It was clean, but we did have some bugs we had to kill upon arrival. The phone in our room didn't work either. My husband and I both wished we could have had some small nightstands or shelves on either side of the bed to put our phones, glasses, etc on. The bed was really tall so we had to climb up on it and getting out of it to grab stuff was a bit of a hassle. We did eat at the restaurant while visiting and it was wonderful! The food was great and the drinks were also great. Having a bar right on the beach was an added bonus. I do wish they would have had some complimentary breakfast for the guests because venturing out to find breakfast was a little hard with the parking situation in that part of town. Make sure to bring something if you don't want to have to venture out. We had brought lunch, but I didn't think about breakfast. The bonfire on Monday night was awesome too! A nice relaxing feeling at night with your drink in your hand and a nice fire going on the beach. Overall, it was a good place to stay and we really enjoyed our trip. If we stayed here again, I would want a room with a view this time.
Manager response:
Hi, Brea! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We do wish you had called about the bugs so we could assist you, but we will be sure to keep an eye on this. This rental does not have a landline; we apologize if this was an inconvenience. We hope to host you again!
Carl B. Mar 2021
Bait an switch number one with booking with Vacasa, no view room parking lot, basketball courts no privacy, bed was small and horrible as well as other uncomfortable furnishings, closet for clothes had fan, cooler, paint cans, vacuum and the bathroom toilet plunger. Been a lot of places one of the worse.
Manager response:
We are disappointed to read you felt this was a 'bait and switch' seeing as the home is very accurately listed on our website. The bed and decor are all new this year, and the owner keeps the fan and cooler in the closet for guest use. We hope to see you again, Carl!
PHIL S. Dec 2020
Very disappointed,was a studio but really mire like a regular hotel room with a little narrow part called a kitchen.The outside balcony overlooked the parking garage.The bed was wayy too high like 2 feet off floor.The $82 housekeeping fee is outrageous, especially since we are required to empty trash at check out!!.10an check out us wayyyy too early
Manager response:
Phil - Thank you for your feedback from your stay. We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay. We hope to have an opportunity to host and impress you in the future. Thank you!
Ashley B. Nov 2020
Felt dirty, needed updating, the sheets did not fit the mattress, the comforter was dirt and thin as a sheet. General condition was poor. Toilet was loose from floor.
Manager response:
Hi, Ashley! We have to admit to being confused by your comments since the home was updated just prior to your stay. We apologize if housekeeping was subpar and will speak with our staff about the matter. The toilet has been tightened and secured. Thank you!
Rachel M. Nov 2019
All of the things we loved about this stay had NOTHING to do with the room itself. Location and proximity to the beach was amazing. Beach bar was the best part of the property. Communication surrounding the stay was good with easy after-hours check-in. The room needed a lot of attention: tons of bugs, especially if lights were left off, balcony door was almost impossible to lock, WiFi did not work, many scuffs on the walls.
Manager response:
We are so sorry to read you did not enjoy your accommodations and do wish you had called for assistance as many of these things could have been quickly addressed to improve the comfort of your stay. We investigated the home and were unable to find any signs of insects or their droppings, the lock on the balcony works correctly, there were no problems with the WiFi connection, and the scruff marks were immediately removed. Thank you!

Everything! Except no stove!
Giselle M. Jul 2019
It was a nice and cozy stay! The location is close to many shops and restaurants, which is a bonus!
Truett B. Jun 2019
The room and bedding look good in the pictures but it was old and not cleaned. Lights were out.
Enjoyed the pool, restaurant, Royal Palm Grille, beach service. Staff was very nice!
Manager response:
We are very sorry to read you arrived at a home that was not prepared for you. This is a rare occurrence, and we are always happy to assist our guests. Thank you!
