We generally enjoyed our stay. Home has a nice layout, and great location and access to the beach.

A couple of minor issues were quickly resolved by VACASA staff after our arrival.

However, there are a number of issues that should be addressed for future residents.

Upstairs smaller bathroom sink and shower do not drain sufficiently. Light switch has to be held up to stay on. Upstairs shower exhaust fan drips on shower floor. Main floor powder room toilet handle sticks and runs. One outlet in master bath is taped over.

The heat does not circulate to the mid-tier bedroom above garage, and there is no separate thermostat in that space. As it was December, the area remained cold relative to the rest of the house.

As mentioned by other reviewers, pots, pans and kitchen utensils are generally in poor condition. There are not enough forks, which had to be hand washed to reuse. Nonstick pans are worn out, flaking and not safe.

The stove top needs replacing. The right front heating element only heats on high, which might be related to the stove top seal separating on that corner of the counter.

The bottom freezer tends to accumulate ice on the freezer floor, which on our last day leaked onto the kitchen floor.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the couch is frayed and chairs are stained. Upstairs carpets are heavily stained. Many of the bedding linens are also stained.

While not critical for use during our stay, the gas grill does not operate and the grease catch has rusted through.

This is not what we consider to be a premier property. While we enjoyed our stay overall, this is not a property that we would rent again. It certainly has potential. For the amount spent, this home could use some upgrades, finishing touches and general TLC. It feels neglected overall.
Manager response:
Thank you for letting us know about your experience, James. We take guest feedback seriously and are discussing your comments with the homeowner. We hope the compensation provided helps alleviate some of your frustration.

Clean! Every bedroom had its own large bathroom, well equipped kitchen… A quick walk to the beach…close to tennis and pickle ball courts…Bike and kayak rentals close by…house on lagoon for leisurely kayak paddling…close to shopping, golf and great restaurants. We’ll be back!
Scott R. Nov 2021
We had our families meet for Thanksgiving week and this house suited us perfectly. Plenty of cookware, silverware, etc to do a Thanksgiving dinner. The house had everything we needed and was situated close to tennis/pickleball, the beach, the general store, and the bike/kayak rental. The only downside was the cost to heat the pool, which was too high for us to afford on top of everything else but other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place.
Angela G. Sep 2021
The layout of the house was great and comfortable. The location was great. There's just a lot of neglected maintenance that needs to be done. The range downdraft had like 2 inches of sludgy grease and grease buildup from not cleaning. The range trim was also coming off. One of the toilets was not attached to the floor and was wobbly and leaked water onto the floor from the base. The floors were not clean resulting in black feet. Both of the vegetable drawers in the refrigerator were broken and you couldn't open them. The dryer did not dry the laundry. There was black mold around the front door frame and the master deck door. The fitted sheets in the double room wouldn't stay on the mattresses. The gutters are completely full of debris that there are weeds growing out of it and cascading down the side of the house nearly 2 stories. The pots and pans were old and very worn and it had limited cooking utensils. To have a maximum occupancy of 12, there was only about 5 forks. The rest were lobster forks with only 2 prongs. The air conditioner was great and we loved having a large dining room table.
Manager response:

We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future with a much more enjoyable stay!

This house is perfect for a large family or group. Every bedroom has its own private bathroom and is separated enough from the others to make it feel like a truly private space. It's also ideally located - while it's not beachfront, it's a very short walk to the beach, to bike/kayak rentals, to the General Store, even to a very nice dinner! The house was very clean and well kept, as was the pool (again, beautiful spot, overlooking the lagoon... Could not have been happier - will definitely rent again!
Elizabeth F. Jul 2021
Right around corner from beach access with the benefit of having a dock to fish off of in the lagoon and a private pool. Had it all, loved this house. Would definitely rent again,
Steve G. Jun 2021
Bedrooms are well placed in the house providing privacy to all. Common living room/kitchen area is perfect.

Will stay at this home again.

The home is very nice and in a terrific location. Very clean.

Joseph H. Oct 2020
This is a very nice home in Palmetto Dunes that is about a 10 minute walk to the beach. It is located close to the entry gate on a lovely dead end street. The home itself was spacious and very clean. It had a nice big screen tv in the family room. Ample towels and linens were provided. This is a pet friendly home, but there is little yard to walk your dog and it is not grass. The home has a nice pool in the backyard, but as we visited in October, leaves were constantly falling from the overhanging trees that made it next to impossible to keep the pool clean. The only negatives that could be addressed by the property owners were the lack of sufficient cooking utensils in the kitchen and the well worn couch and loveseat in the great room. Our experience with VACASA was excellent and they were very responsive to our requests. Overall, it was a good rental experience that I would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone wanting to visit HHI.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Joseph. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement regarding adding kitchen utensils and replacing the couch. We'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We had the pleasure of staying in this home during the first week of October. It was spacious, clean and a fantastic location. If we were traveling again with our pup we would hesitate to stay here. The only downside is the pool is small which seemed to be the norm in that area. Also heating the pool is required to actually use it.
Rachel M. Oct 2020
House was perfect for vacation, clean, spacious, very cute backyard, close to the beach.
Leslie L. Sep 2020
The house is lovely and the setting is beautiful. We enjoyed staying here and would definitely stay again.

We had a wonderful stay. The bedrooms are spacious and well spread out for families. The bathrooms were very spacious. It was nice to have an 8 seater table for everyone in our family to eat together. The kitchen is well equipped and we had everything we needed. There were a few minor things that we had to reach out to Vacasa about but they were very nice and responsive. The home is close to the beach, safe and a great place to stay and be socially distant. The private beach was not crowded at all. Almost no one was on the beach after 5 pm. The bicycle rentals are in walking distance and they will pick the bikes up when you are done. The grocery stores are literally 5 minutes away. The kids loved the pool and the men loved fishing on the lake. There was something for everyone to relax and enjoy! We wished we could have stayed longer!

Nice pool over looking the waterway. Great open living and dining area. Spacious bedrooms most with jet tubs only small downside was the traffic noise at peak times across the water
Elisse B. Jul 2020
This house is very accommodating, very clean and great location. Easy to get to beach. A few things I would change: Wish the house had a ‘house book’ with beach direction and some info about the house; more forks; decent large skillet; and an updated master shower for example. Customer service at Vacasa on the other hand leaves room for Improvement. As the rep who rented the house to me left Vacasa, I found it impossible to make contact with anyone to get some questions answered prior to our arrival date. Finally had to wait almost an hour on hold to get through the day before we left. And then when we arrived on check in day, had to wait 25 minutes on hold because the door entry code we were provided in our check in package (Same as the door code on Vacasa App) was incorrect and we couldn’t get inside. There needs to be a better way to reach Vacasa! By the way the garage has several beach chairs and pool noodles/ rafts for use by guests.... that would have been super helpful to know in advance.
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize we have been difficult to reach during this summer season due to the adverse effect COVID-19 has had on our staffing. We are actively bringing on more staff to help on the phones and in the field. Thank you!

Rosemary S. Jun 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed this home. It is set up great for families and convenient to beach and Shelter Cove.

We loved the dock out back and enjoyed bringing our kayaks and cruising the canal. We fished on the dock and were also right across the street from the beach access! Perfect beach home for several families to enjoy!

The rental house was perfect and we had a great time.
Nice property ,just a few small 'issues'
. Jun 2017
Upside: -This house is in a great location with only a short bike ride to beach, tennis and general store in Palmetto Dunes. -The pool area has both sun & shade opportunities during the day. -The bedrooms are located at each corner of the house- all with private bath -1 garage access allows for bike and gear storage and driveway can house 4 cars. -Kitchen has been partially updated. 2 garage for owner use only. -Twin bedroom is attached to additional room w/couch - which is fantastic for younger children to play. Downside: Outdoor dining table is limited to only 4 people. Shared living space becomes quite tight on rainy days. Front entrance becomes the drop spot for bags, flip flops, keys and wet towels x10 Entire house could use a "refresh". All in all for a week or 2 you will have a really nice time here!
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.

My family has rented this house for 3 years and will not consider any other property. The house is always clean and there is sufficient towels. The dining room table is excellent for larger families like mine. We will always rent this property.

Nice house that amply suited 8 ladies.

Location and response to service needs
. Jun 2016
This is a lovely residence in a perfect location. The bedrooms are very spacious with large bathrooms and closets for each. The living room is great with tons of seating including two full sofas and additional chairs. The kitchen and dining areas also seat a number of people. The property is located approximately three minutes from the beach by bike and less than 10 minutes walking. The back has a lovely view. There is a grill which we used. The back deck and pool area were nice, however the pool was somewhat smaller when considering the size of the home. The area is very safe.
