DON A. Feb 2023
This Sea Cabin is the cleanest and best decorated of the one we have have seen or stayed in. I would say that it has recently undergone a complete renovation. We loved it! Having said that we did encounter a couple of slight disappointments. Again these are minor and that's why I did not deduct from the 5 star rating. The TV in the living room would not sink up with the service and therefore was unusable. We spent about an hour frustratingly trying to get it to work. That, however was a blessing because we spent a lot more time talking together and listening to music. The only other issue was the noise of children running in the condo above us. This was a rare situation. We could not hear the parents walking around, only the children running so normally that would not be an issue.

Convenient location, private beach access, many useful amenities

Wish I could rate zero. Actually they owe me a star. Never got to stay as hurricane canceled our flight from FL and concert on the beach at IOP canceled also (main reason for trip). I let them know 24+ hours before check-in that we couldn't make it. I understand being responsible for nightly rate, but they will not reimburse us for $250 cleaning fee or resort fee, paid in advance, when we were never there. This is unethical, if not illegal, as they actually MADE money off of our misfortune.
Manager response:
Sandra, thank you for your review. We are sorry that Hurricane Ian disrupted your travel plans. Our company offers travel insurance so that our guests can protect their vacation dollars. Our cancellation policies are made clear and nothing is hidden. If a guest cancels a reservation within 30 days of the reservation no refund is forthcoming. We hope the refund we processed helps to soften your disappointment and we look forward to actually being able to host you in the future. Thank you!

Once we got the bags in I kicked my flip -flops off, I had to sweep the floor, beach sand
everywhere, when we settled we had something to eat , I took out plates, crumbs on the plate!
After I washed the plates, I sat on the couch and wanted to feel the fabric it looked like it would be rough, it wasn't, but crumbs on the couch!
When we went to bed I noticed the vent was dusty and black! Shower liner was a cloth shower curtain, orange at the bottom which told me gross and disgusting!
I called with my laundry list. Heard back thru text, nothing was done to fix any of it!
All I can say is that I left it clean for the cleaner
This condo needs some attention it’s very tired!
Manager response:
Hi Ruth! We are sorry to have been unable to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing vacation experience. We strive to maintain a standard of excellence in home cleanliness and upkeep for the comfort of our guests . We appreciate the opportunity to address any outlying concerns with our local team to ensure our service standards are being thoroughly met.

An early check in was requested weeks in advance, again a week out, and again the day of. Each time the property management said they would accommodate if the property wasn't occupied. We arrived 2hrs early, the condo was ready, but the property management refused to accommodate the early check in.

There was a urine smell outside the condo near the steps to parking lot from the moment we arrived until the day we left. It was coming from a drain pipe or something located at the top of the stairs.

Additionally, the second bedroom is the entryway (as soon as you walk in the front door). Thankfully the front door had a high deadbolt to keep the children from leaving the condo without us knowing.

Also, the bathroom is unacceptable. The shower pressure was non existent. The shower curtain was cloth and smelled (wet dog/mildew? type smell). This can't be sanitary. I feel like the plastic liners would be a better option. The whole bathroom needs a makeover.
The ceiling fans (one in bedroom and one in family room were tied to the same remote. Couldn't operate them seperately. This wasn't a deal breaker, just annoying.

You absolutely pay for LOCATION with this property. Everything else is definetely a second or third thought.... from customer service to saying it's two bedrooms to a bathroom which is in desperate need of upgrade/repair.
Manager response:
Hi Brandon, thank you for your review, we do hope you enjoyed your stay! We apologize for the issues you encountered and any inconvenience they caused. If there are any concerns or areas in need of additional attention, we hope to be notified so we can make sure any issues are addressed. Your valuable feedback has been passed to our local manager who will make any updates to the home. We hope to have the chance to host you again in the future.

The location is great! Easy walking distance to everything you need: beach, groceries, dining, dessert, and drinks. The condo is nicely appointed and clean. My daughter, 13, liked the bunks. Communications with the management team was very responsive, no issues at all. If you're going to cook you'll have the tools to do so but you'll need to bring/buy all of the ingredients. Don't forget to bring your own beach towels. We'd recommend this condo to anyone.
Acey D. May 2022
The main bedroom isn’t a king and the bunk beds are in the main hallway. It would be a very tight fit if 6 wanted to stay there. It was clean. The beach access was easy.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Acey. We are sorry for any confusion regarding the bed size. The bedroom has a queen bed. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope to host you again.

We booked this Condo for a weekend getaway for Mother’s Day. The location is just off the beach with direct access to the beach and a pool. You are within a 2 minute walk of three excellent restaurants. Parking was easy and located close to the unit for easy unloading and loading belongings. Note: they do have active security during the day time hours to prevent illegal parking. The unit itself worked perfect for what we needed. First glance we had ample amount of towels and the unit was very clean. Master bedroom bed was comfortable. Our two boys loved the bunk beds located in the hallway. All the appliances where new or newer and in good working order. WiFi and TV worked perfect and easy to access/ use. The balcony had a nice high top table and chairs. There was two regular outdoor chairs that where really not needed and took up space. Would have just enjoyed the extra space for beach buggy, cooler, and ocean toys. Other then that minor thing we really enjoyed this location and it served our needs, as I mentioned before. It’s smaller in size but we spent the majority of our time at the beach and pool. We will definitely be staying at this location again. Thank you!

Nice condo - convenient to the beach and local restaurants. Very clean and comfortable. It is not beachfront as advertised but beach views is available. It was also a full bed rather than a king, but all the furniture was very comfortable.
Angela D. Apr 2022
The view and location are great! Housekeeping was our only issue and customer service didn’t feel that the 2 small issues we had were worth their time. Would stay again providing they actually get cleaners that know how to replace a moldy shower curtain and a comforter that didn’t have someone else’s blood on it.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear that the shower curtains were in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties! We appreciate this feedback as an opportunity to improve upon when making future improvements. Sincere apologies for any missteps, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future with a much more enjoyable stay!

great location. walk to everything
Erik E. Dec 2021
We loved our stay at the Sea Cabins. The place was clean and as expected. It is on the smaller side and our teenagers ended up sleeping on the pull out couch instead of the bunks (which would be more suited for slightly smaller kids). But it was an excellent location and we enjoyed being able to have easy access to the beach and the local restaurants. We did a lot of sightseeing and only spent time here in the evening so it was the perfect home base. Would definitely consider staying again in the future.

Just perfect size for 3 or 4 people, it would be to crowded for 6

Good location, walkable to restaurants, close to the beach. Clean and nicely stocked. The sleeping arrangements are best suitable for a couple (plus 2 small children); 2 adults max.
Lacey W. Jul 2021
Everything in saw Cabin was great, and clean. Private access to beach, pool and pier was awesome. We are a family of 3 and will definitely be using Sea Cabins again.

We have stayed at Sea Cabin before but this is by far the nicest Sea Cabin condo we have stayed in. The amenities were nice, new and beautiful. Everything was super clean. We will be back!
Brooke D. May 2021
Hearing the waves crash at night on the back porch was so peaceful. Unit was clean and simple.
Kelsey Lhee E. May 2021
Great view of the ocean & enjoyed the private pool & pier !!
Lynne C. Mar 2021
Cute, convenient, clean, and close to the ocean! You can hear the ocean waves from the patio, easy walk to the beach, a pool, and the park is in walking distance. Plus, the kitchen is well equipped with nice appliances, dishes and cooking tools. Bed is comfy and plenty of towels for showers after the beach! We were very pleased!
Craig S. Nov 2020
We stayed 11/5-11/8 and had a wonderful time. Great location close to the beach in IOP and near restaurants (Acme, Coda Del Pesce). Space was great for the two of us. Quiet. Nothing luxurious but great price point so we set realistic expectations. Only negative was the Wi-Fi didn't work all the time. Kitchen/fridge worked well. External wear and tear expected given the age and proximity to the ocean (ex. screen door didn't slide well b/c of rust/corrosion). Would definitely consider staying here again in the future.
Manager response:
Hi, Craig! Thank you for letting us know about your stay at Sea Cabin 137-C. The community WiFi does get spotty at times, and we apologize if this proved difficult for any reason. We will look at what we can do for the screen door. We hope to see you again!

This little condo was perfect for my wife and I. It is in a great location steps from the beach. The condo was clean and in good repair. We hope to come again soon!

Perfect for our 3 person vacation. I wouldn't recommend for any more persons. Check in and check out was easy! Prime location for restaurants and shopping. Pool was very nice too!
Peggy R. Jul 2020
Location can’t be beat, beachfront, pool front, close to restaurants, bars and Harris teater for groceries, outdoor grills a bonus as well
