We stay at Tidewater every year. This was one of our favorite condos for our large family. The layout is perfect. The view is amazing. The decor is fabulous. We had a couple of hiccups that needed to be fixed but maintenance came quickly. The only thing keeping me from giving five stars was the need for pots and pans*, hairdryers and one ceiling fan did not work. All in all we enjoyed the condo and it will be one we will book again.

*The frying pans there are worn and had no handles.

If you didn't stay on the first few floors, the wait for the elevator was crazy. We luckily had this 2nd floor condo which made it easy access to the pool and beach. So for this reason we gave it 5 stars but only 3 stars because the kitchen lighting was horrible, toilet in the master never stopped running, toilet seat in the other bed room was broken, ceiling fan in same room never worked, kitchen utensils were of very poor quality, broken chair in the family room, ladder in kids room was broken as well, the refrigerator had missing shelves. However when we called Vacasa they fixed several of the items but still not all of them by the end of our stay.
Manager response:
Hi, Michelle! Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Since the lighting, utensil quality, and furnishings are more a matter of preference, the homeowner will not be changing them at this time. The maintenance items have all been addressed. We hope to see you again!

The 3 bedrooms with bunk room were just what we needed for our entire family (10 total). The location on the second floor was also great allowing us to use the stairs instead of waiting on elevators.
We did call about the air conditioner not cooling to our liking. A very nice general maintenance worker came to check things out. He reset the breaker and suggested using the dehumidifier. Minimal improvement. An air conditioning specialist was supposed to be contacted but they never came. We went out and bought fans to make sleeping more comfortable.
The condo was nice enough but is in need of a refresh. Bunk room chest had broken drawers. Hair dryer in master bath did not work.

The property’s location is ideal. It is on the beach and across from it are restaurants and walking distance from Pier Park. The condo is super spacious with beautiful views of the ocean and the pool. Also the fact that it is on the second floor a big plus because the elevators are a nightmare so just take the stairs and save time .
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with us, Keren. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the location and spaciousness of the home! Regrettably, the elevators are under the management of the building management, not Vacasa. We hope to host you again in the future!

Location was great, home is updated and had everything we needed.
Sarah S. Jul 2021
The view was great! The location of the condo was perfect being on the same floor as the parking/breezeway, close to an elevator and stairs, great views of ocean and pool. Plenty of dishes/cups/utensils, some of the pans were worn or no handles. Plenty of beds/space for our family of 12. Could use a few repairs, like attaching headboards to the beds, the living room furniture was very loved and used. We had a great stay and would use again!
Teresa H. Jun 2021
Condo was clean with comfy beds, plenty of dishes, and great deck for sunset watching. Restaurants are a short walk away. Our family enjoyed our stay!
Schella S. Jun 2021
This condo was very clean and just as advertised. The location of the unit, on the 2nd floor, saves a lot of time because you don't have to wait on an elevator.
Angela V. May 2021
The condo was everything we expected as far as amount of rooms, beds and bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable.
Angie W. May 2021
Views and on crossover to parking level.
Mariah Z. May 2021
This place and Vacasa company are equally amazing! All expectations were met and exceeded staying at Tidewater 201. We will definitely book again!
Amy R. Apr 2021
Large condo with great views. Poor scheduling of having entire access door from parking garage out for 4 days because they don't work on the weekend. Elevator out too. We had to go up and down stairs constantly with 2 little ones. We chose second floor for a reason! Condo was pretty although dirty. And no basics like potholders. Would stay again just for space.
Mavis C. Mar 2021
The condo was clean and as beautiful as the pictures provided. My family and I enjoyed our stay. The view was great. The staff was helpful and courteous as well. We plan to revisit yearly.
Emily M. Feb 2021
We loved the view, location of unit and the ease of getting in and out of unit. We had 2 couples in the unit and we still had our privacy and plenty of space for us.
Phillip T. Jan 2021
Nice big place. Super clean. Nicely updated. big dining table. I hope to stay there again.
Melissa J. Nov 2020
We stayed in unit 201 for a little over a week and would definitely stay here again. It was clean when we arrived and check in was very simple. Having the Vacasa desk right downstairs with actual staff on hand was great, they were very helpful and professional. We didn’t have any issues during our stay but if we did, I feel confident that they would have been addressed quickly. The unit is in a great location and has a great beach view. I think it was especially nice that it was not busy during mid November so there was no wait for check in or the elevators. Overall loved this unit!

Beautiful, classy condo. Convenient to about everything.
Curry C. Sep 2020
This condo is Amazing! The pictures don't due it justice. Very spacious. The ONLY thing I have to say is that the mattresses were horrible. The first night was very difficult to sleep. My husband had to go buy a mattress pad. They made a huge difference. If they could upgrade the beds it would be perfect.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback. We will be sure to bring your comments about the mattresses to the attention of the local staff and the owner. We appreciate your comments and helping us improve for our future guests.

What a disappointment!!! Our first night there a bad leak started under the kitchen sink. We discovered standing water under the sink that had been there for A WHILE making the condo smell like dead fish! It had been there long enough for the cabinet to sink in!! Maintenance fixed the leak but the smell remained. How did the cleaning staff not see the standing water under the sink or smell it?? It was rancid!!

The main balcony door was almost impossible to open. Several times it took two of us. I reported it twice. Never heard back and it wasn’t fixed!

In the guest bath the shower door bar was literally falling off. There’s no way the cleaning crew couldn’t have noticed that! There was also mold in the shower and exposed rusty bolts on the toilet. Parts of the toilet was missing.

Several electrical items (dvd players, etc) were not plugged in.

We spent lots of time looking for remotes, which were on top of a very high piece of furniture. We had to feel for them to find them. Why does the cleaning crew not check for those??

We found clothes from previous guests in the dresser. Why did the cleaning crew not check the drawers?

The beds were terribly uncomfortable.

The guest bedroom has a cracked closet door which we were told would be fixed and never was.

The dining area had a horribly cracked window which we were told would be fixed while we were there and never was.
Vacasa actually called us TWICE before our vacation to tell us maintenance would need to come in our room while we were there to fix the mirror and window but they never did!!!

Maintenance banged loudly and impatiently on our door early one morning waking up everyone in the condo and when I opened the door they said they had the wrong room.

Other than the couch and matching chair there was no comfortable seating! Some seating was very dated!!

All that being said, this is a beautiful condo!!! If only the cleaning crew and maintenance could do their job appropriately it would be nice. They also need more comfortable, updated seating and mattresses!
Manager response:
Hello Michelle, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are disappointed to hear there were issues during your stay, as this is not the high level of guest satisfaction that we hold ourselves to. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager, who has confirmed these all have been addressed. We apologized for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to host you again.

The room was great, very clean and spacious. Also being on the 2nd floor was so convenient.
Galina S. Mar 2020
We are very happy with this unit! We booked it very last minute and honestly were surprised at how big it was. There was 6 of us but this unit would hold 11 comfortably! It had everything we needed, was very clean, and nicely decorated. Tidewater pools and hot tub are a good size. We would definitely stay here again!
