The view of the gulf was amazing from every room. The decor was beautiful and very comfortable. The staff was professional and very kind. We can’t wait to come back.

I’d give the view 5+ stars. The communication and details, 3 stars
To note:
-there is no ice made by ice maker.
- a map of the property showing where pool and beach access would be helpful (it’s a 0.5 mile walk along the boardwalk to beach)
-parking was confusing - we were assigned a spot but only one even though we had 2 vehicles
- bedroom that has access to balcony gets uncomfortably warm in the afternoon
Overall, a wonderful unit. The privacy of being at the end with the view does make up for the walk (but it would have been nice to know this info ahead of time). A book w renter info or email ahead of time with some details would be a good addition.
Manager response:
We are so glad you stayed with us, Lisa, and are pleased to read you enjoyed the view so much. We would like to apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. The ice maker is working, and more detailed information regarding amenities will be put together for guest use. There are two parking spots for this rental and apologize if there was any confusion regarding that feature. Hopefully we can host you again!

The view is as good or better than in the pictures. That section of the beach is far from crowded. Being on the end of the building also adds privacy and seclusion. I heard the unit might be for sale so next season will likely have a new owner.

The view of the beach from our balcony was incredible
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Steve! We are happy to see you enjoyed your stay. Please know we have 24/7 guest services to assist our guests with any issues they may have during their stay. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to hosting you again!

This property has beautiful views of the gulf. However, it does not have direct beach access because there is a lagoon between the building and beach. The walk across paths and bridges, which is lovely, is about a 1/2 mile. If you have a cart to get your beach items to the access point, that would be helpful.
If you want to rent an umbrella and/or chairs, the only company that will service this area of WaterSound is La Dolce Vita. The management company does not provide this information.
The garage that comes with the unit is very helpful and makes storing extra chairs and beach stuff much easier.
The property could use a little TLC (maybe when it sells to new owners), but other than that, it is a good location!
Manager response:
Hi, Jill, thank you so much for this feedback! We will use it to improve this home for future reservations. We’re very glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope we get the opportunity to host you again sometime in the near future.

The view from the unit is spectacular and can be enjoyed on multiple balconies. The unit was clean and adequately equipped. Nice layout. The unit is on the 4th floor and there is an elevator. I expected more for the money and location in upscale Watersound. It desperately needs a renovation and new furnishings. The 90’s decor is showing its age. It’s disappointing that the maintenance issues reported in prior reviews have not been addressed. For example both balcony door locks are broken and French door is missing center bolts to secure the door. Cable tv not connected or didn’t work properly in 2 TVs. The dvd/cd players in living room were not connected and had no instruction manuals. There are new homes under construction behind but noise was not an issue. Access to use Watersound Beach Amenities is not included but there is access to the local pool. The walk to the beach is long (about a mile) because of location of beach access bridge. Owners bath is open to bedroom with no privacy for toilet.
Manager response:
Hi, Steve! We are glad you enjoyed this location and apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We encourage guests to reach out to our property management team directly via the contact information provided in check-in instructions, as our professional, dedicated team is standing by should any need arise. We hope for the opportunity to better serve you in the future!

Unit has the best view and balcony. However, there is a lot of wear and tear on the inside. Couches need to be replaced. Just needs some updating and it would be fabulous

My family and I had an amazing time at Watersound A431, but there are a few things to know to make your visit even better. First, check in is at the main gate for which no location is given. Instead of going to the gate that your nav system will take you to, you need to go to the entrance west of the HUB. There they will give you your parking pass and codes to go back to Bridges. Next if you don't lock the doors properly they will fly open. Pull the handle up and turn the lock counterclockwise to lock or clockwise to unlock then push handle down to open. This is a spacious, well kept unit with beautiful views of the ocean. The home provided everything we expected, but some investment needs to be put toward purchasing new pots and pans. This was a perfect central location that allowed us to easily explore all of the 30A. Vacasa was prompt with check in details and we felt it met covid cleanliness standards. They also checked in with us during our stay to make sure everything was up to par. We had the use of the garage during our stay which was a plus. Bike rentals are nearby at the HUB. We will definitely come again.

View, privacy

We loved the setting and beautiful views in this condo. Sunsets from the deck were stunning! The beach was wonderful - a little bit of a walk, but for our family of 5 we were able to get all our gear down in one trip : ). The home is very nice. The only reason we don't rate it a 5 - a little maintenance recommended. It was great to have access to garage for our bike storage!
Robin S. Feb 2021
We loved this unit! The view and unit itself were beautiful! Our only complaint was that the kitchen and supplies need some updating. We can't wait to come back again. Wonderful place!

Amazing views. Very quiet beach. No one was within 25 yards of us on the beach. Great social distancing vacay.

We had a nice visit to Watersound. Second time we have stayed at the Crossings at Watersound. First time was 12 years ago. The only complaint I have regarding the actual condo is the master suite and living room balcony doors would not latch shut; therefore, if the front door opened it would push the two balcony doors open. This caused the cool air in the condo to leave the rooms. This would be an easy fix for maintenance. Check in and check out was seamless. Very secluded beach. The use of the garage and beach items (ie floats, beach chairs....) in the garage was an added plus. The Hub is a great addition to the area. We will be back.
Manager response:
Hi, Louisa! The balcony doors have been repaired, and we are pleased to share the owner is also installing a new air conditioning unit. Thank you!

We loved the view! Beautiful!

From the moment we walked in we knew we made the right choice. The condo is absolutely beautiful and the staff is incredible to work with. The views of the gulf were breathtaking.
Steven M. Mar 2020
Overall absolutely lovely space and property! The architectural design of this property and this particular villa is stunning. Being a top floor unit provides for the luxury of vaulted ceilings and extra windows for generous amounts of wonderful Florida sunshine! The overall space in the unit is excellent with 3 en-suite bedrooms plus a powder room in main area. The master is spacious with massive walk in closet! Master has it own private balcony which is grand for those moments of special solitude. The unit also provides a rare benefit of a private garage. Excellent for storing the onsite provided beach toys in addition to protection for your own car and bikes! The unit has few issues the owner could easily address to allow the home to achieve the full 5 stars given for its location and view. The issues are minor but annoying (like missing base boards, faucet drips, missing blinds, basic cable, etc). But trust me, these issues are easy to forget every time you take advantage of looking out to the beautiful dunes, beach and gulf. Another big advantage of Watersound Beach is the vast amount of private beach providing a very low ratio of owners per foot of beach!
Never crowded. One thing of note, the neighboring Watersound Beach Club facility is not available to renters of this unit. Many unit rentals in this complex come with this added benefit. Also, Watersound Beach has it's own fitness center but is not provided to renters. And the guest fees are higher than neighboring fitness facilities in the area. If that matters to you.
Overall, we truly enjoyed our two month stay and will never forget the luxury of space, view and tranquility. Also of great appreciation is responsiveness and pleasant personalities of the team at the Vacasa Seacrest location! If renting in the area again, I will definitely consider once again! You should also!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Steven! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our house manager to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!
