Condo was not as clean as it should be. Smelled like pets upon entry. Needs paint, deep cleaning and updates. Pools are small, but location was close to everything and beach access convenient. Vacasa rep was great, attentive and helpful.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

As an experienced renter, I liked the easy booking process, cleanliness, excellent location, and kind staff members at Seawind. Our party of 5 enjoyed the pools. I liked that our parking passes and wrist bands were waiting for us inside the condo. Thank you for providing carts for our use!
SEAWIND: I did not like the excessively long elevator wait times; the crammed/limited parking spaces (One time I received a parking violation on the premises when Seawind had zero parking spots available and I was told by an gate employee to park illegally); the flimsy, paper wrist bands (they came off while swimming).
Unit 1503: Nice, clean condo smell, overall cleanliness, all major/minor appliances worked fine, sufficient amount of towels, linens, toiletries, paper supplies for our 4 night stay.
However, for a maximum of 6 people, the kitchen dishes were in short supply and there were no pot holders to remove hot items from oven. Further, there were pieces of a shelf lying in the floor of the back bedroom?? We couldn't figure out how to use the living room tv- 4 remote controls present (2 without batteries). Fortunately, both bedrooms had large screen tv's that worked with ease. Finally, the pillows (flat) and mattresses (stiff & springy) in every room were very uncomfortable. The master bedroom didn't have any bedside lamps, but we found them in the top of the master closet.. in pieces. The dining chair cushions are either stained or barely hanging by threads, while the couches look updated and modern (no pull out beds, btw).
I rated this home a 3, and I would not stay in this particular condo again.
Manager response:
We appreciate you staying with us, Lesli. The batteries, oven mitts, and lamps have been addressed by our property manager. We hope to provide you with a better experience in the future. Thank you!

Love master bedroom had ocean view

Beautiful views from the balcony. Easy to get everywhere you need to go. On site security, to make you feel even better about your stay. The unit was extremely clean and comfortable.

Loved the view and the layout of the condo. The amenities in the complex were great and we spent a lot time in the hot tub. Beach access was great.

Loved being right on the ocean

We enjoyed the actual location and Unit 1503 but can not imagine staying there again due to the elevator wait time. It’s not acceptable to have to wait 10-20 minutes for an elevator. We ended up taking the stairs up and down 15 floors carrying our 2 and 4 year old due to the wait time.
Edward M. Jul 2020
The location was great. Everything is close by and it is right on the beach. 18 floors, with a penthouse, and only one set of elevators. There was one elevator attendant, which helped some, but there were times when we waited for more than half an hour and finally took the stairs down 15 flights. The condo was nice, abs it was clean. My complaints are that it was obvious that the bare minimum was spent on the condo. None of the electrical outlets worked in either bathroom. There were barely enough bowls, plates, cups, etc., with some only being a set of 2. Seeing as the condo sleeps 6, the kitchen supplies didn’t accommodate that many guests. There was no sleeper sofa (we didn’t need it, anyway), and the soca and loveseat provided were tiny and uncomfortable, metal style pieces. The worst part, by far, was the quality of the mattresses. Each of the 6 mattresses (2 king and 2 twin) was very thin, flimsy and uncomfortable. My friend suggested that they felt like the mattress from a sleeper sofa. We enjoyed the beautiful beach, the water was perfect, restaurants abs for shops were nearby and very much enjoyable. The condo clean, but based on the things that I mentioned above, I have to assume that the owners do not use it for personal use. We will be back to the area, and possibly stay in the same high rise, but not in this unit.
Manager response:
Hi, Edward! We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to read you wouldn't consider returning. Due to the hurricane, the home is only open to the owners, but we will get in as soon as possible to address your concerns. Thank you!

Upgrades where very nice. Liked the tiles floors

The beach and pool were wonderful. The staff at the 24 hour hotline and security helped quiet our upstairs neighbor that thought is was a good idea to bring a karaoke machine and sing to the beach from his balcony. Luckily he left by day 3. Waiting on an elevator everyday was crazy. I am glad we were staying on one of the top floors, otherwise I am not sure we would of ever gotten on the elevator.

Great resort, only complaints are elevators and parking.
George B. Jun 2018
The headboard was loose so we inserted a pillow between the headboard and wall to avoid contact. Also, the mattresses are very noise.
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.
