All I really wanted was to sit on the balcony and listen to the waves hit the beach, I could see them but could not hear them because of the pool fountain directly below me. The condo is lovely and much more space than I needed but I was a bit bummed.

Our first vacation in a while and this condo was in a perfect spot. Wonderful view of the ocean and good location for walking. The pool was beautiful and we plan to come again in the summer so we can enjoy it. Kitchen has plenty of dishes, pots and pans. Plenty of space for a family to spread out.

The condo was great overall. There are a few minor issues: 1) the door and side window need maintenance, the wind was terrible and blew straight in the kitchen and living room. 2) we were unable to get the heat to come on, adding to the uncomfortably cold temperature in the condo. We bought hoodies to wear inside the condo. The wind from the door did not help. 3) we were not given the gate code to get into the property. We were sent the code for October but when it changed for November we were not informed. I had to call Vacasa three times to get through and learn the code, all while there was a line of other cars waiting to enter the property (as there is no where to get out of the way to let others pass. 4) the condo was clean on surface, but could certainly benefit from some deep cleaning (the wall behind stove is nasty, dust on items higher on shelves, windows need cleaning, floors have multiple stains (likely from pets) if it were me I would replace the carpet with laminate wood or tile, as it is common for pets to have accidents especially in strange places. 5) it was not clear where we were supposed to park, the numbers on the parking spaces are worn and very difficult to see. We accidentally parked in wrong spot and if the staff had not let us know we would have had our car towed. 6) the kitchen sink does not have hot water and the hot water for the rest of the condo was lacking. It has enough for about 2 showers, anyone else has to use mostly cold water, even after waiting a while. Otherwise, we had a nice trip. The 6th floor balcony was perfect for watching the Blue Angels show. And the location and view of Gulf is wonderful. The kitchen was well stocked (although several plates were put away with lots of gross dried food on them, so we washed everything before using it). The coffeepot in pantry leaks. And the large frying pan has Teflon coming off and needs to be thrown away and replaced. I
The linens were all nice and clean, plenty of extras too. The tv was nice (it might be nice to have instructions or channel guide though). The jetted tub was great, but needed more hot water. It was very convenient to have washer and dryer in the condo, dishwasher too! The property was nice, the pool was very cold and hot tub was extremely (uncomfortably) hot. It was good to have carts to carry stuff up to condo. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it for anyone vacationing in Pensacola Beach.

The view
Russell B. Oct 2021
Loved the balcony views. Close to peg Leg’s. Close to the beach and Ft Pickens Campground. Ice condo. Liked that the condo allowed pets!
Randy B. Oct 2021
View was wonderful. Bed was not comfortable. This is a pet friendly unit, carpet is very stained and smells of urine. Different flooring, not carpet would be much better for pet friendly! Other than the bed, and smell, needs better flooring, unit is pretty.

From the time of booking to the time of check out, the the communication from Vacasa was amazing! The home is beautiful and peaceful. The view was so beautiful! Definitely staying here again. I also recommend to my best friend! She will book there too!
Elizabeth S. Oct 2021
The view is fabulous and so close to the beach it really doesnt matter that you have to cross the street. It was clean at check in with comfy bed. Will definitely rent this unit again!
Chapman S. Sep 2021
Immaculate upon check in, very comfortable space. Spacious balcony with great view, and super easy access to the beach.
Jennifer H. Sep 2021
Upon reviewing comments left by others, I was nervous about the condition of the condo before check in. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find it clean and inviting. The location is wonderful, views from the balcony are beautiful…we had a great stay. Thanks
Toni C. Sep 2021
We had a great stay. This is a great location with a great view.

However, we spent some time mopping the kitchen and bathroom floors. They were nasty! And be prepared to buy memory foam if you use the twin beds. They’re like sleeping on a rock!

But overall we had a great time.

Dirty, broken and outdated. I had to summarize as they limit words for reviews. Unit is poorly done and maintained. The view of the ocean.

I called and advised housekeeper was still on premises when we arrived at check in time. She shouted from a back room, “I’m running behind”. She left an hour on dishwasher and a load of clothes were in the dryer. She left a garbage bag of essentials on the counter. When I unpacked it the toilet paper roll was wet and packaging for the soap. The foyer clearly had not been swept shown by chip crumbs and lots of sand, the toaster was covered in crumbs, the stove covered in grease, and coffee pot still had a bit of coffee in the bottom. The furniture tops were covered in dust and bathroom vents had loads of black mold on them. There were hairs in the shower. Overall the cleaning looked rushed and unfinished. I immediately went to the grocery store for cleaning supplies and stripped the bed clothes and cleaned the entire unit. The solution when I filed a complaint was to refund the cleaning fee: a small amount considering I paid well over $1000 for my stay and had to clean myself before I could use. The security gate was propped open the entire stay. A security guard said “It may be broken. It’s my first night here.” The decor or the unit was nice, tv’s in every room, close to beach, great view. I’ve stayed at Emerald Dolphin for 4 years and this was the first trip with a poor experience.

Enough space for our family of 5. East check in and check out. Love the garage space that comes with the condo. Made our family vehicle stay nice and cool.
Susan G. Jun 2021
Loved the location and the floor for view was nice.
Barbara S. May 2021
Let me first start by saying that I’ve stayed in many rentals over the years, either with friends or I’ve rented several myself.

I’ll start first with the good. The layout of the condo was super. Bedrooms on each side with a bathroom for each. Spacious enough for several people to enjoy. The place was decorated nicely. The view was amazing, however the traffic below could get annoying during the busy summertime. The check in and checkout was simple and the Vacasa staff was attentive.

The ice maker didn’t work so my boyfriend fixed it as well as screwed a few plugs that were about to come out of the wall. The bathroom shower door was broken but did still close.

Now the worst part. The place was filthy! I mean, you could tell it hadn’t been cleaned in some time. I am talking filth, not dirt. I couldn’t even cook until I cleaned the kitchen. It was that bad. The spoon holder still had grease in it from the previous renters. The carpet has been urinated on by dogs so many times that you can smell it constantly. Especially if it rains. I had to spray Fabreeze at night just so I could fall asleep. It needs to be removed immediately. I took pictures and sent to Vacasa which I was refunded my cleaning deposit. They did offer to come clean it as well but I had already cleaned what I could. It needs some serious deep cleaning. It would take hours to clean that place!

COVID guidelines are definitely not being followed as stated on their website. They need to fire the cleaning company they are using!

Manager response:
Hello Barbara,Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and apologize that you encountered some cleanliness issues. Please know that this is not commonplace, and we thank you for calling in order for local staff to promptly resolve these issues. We look forward to your next stay!

Beautiful view! Peg Leg Pete's and the convenience store Tom Thumb (both) right next store. The condo is roomy. The beds can be a bit more comfortable. But overall, we would definitely come back! Can't beat the view! And a bonus it being pet friendly!
John W. Aug 2020
The views from this condo make it well worth the money! Other things we loved: the pool, the way the condo was set up, basically two separate suites with the kitchen and living area in the middle was a really nice privacy bonus, and the fact we could bring our dog with us was great. Just a few minor cons to this condo. First, the kitchen definitely needs to be equipped better with utensils. Second, needs to be updated with some USB charging ports. Third, the bathroom was amazing, but the shower door does not shut properly. We had some problems with the central air when arriving but Vacasa handled the issue immediately and it was taken care of right away. We had a great mini vacation and would definitely recommend both the condo and Vacasa.

Had a great time on our 37 year anniversary . Needs a little updating . Carpet needs to go . But all in all would stay here again...

This was our second year in the condo. The carpet needs to be replaced and we didn’t have chair survive which was really disappointing. My family had a wonderful trip.
Carol R. Jun 2020
I love the complex and the view. We have rented this unit many times. The wait time to make a reservation or call the office is incredibly long and I was bounced around a few times. The unit comes with chairs and the chair company was not advised. Plus someone before us left a good bit of items in the master closet including an open (stuck) ironing board. Granted I love this unit and appreciate they are pet friendly, the attention to details like silverware (only two spoons) could be revisited. Don't get me wrong, I will rent it again. The layout is perfect and it is spacious and the kitchen is well stocked save for eating utensils.
Manager response:
Hi Carol, thank you for your review! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at this home! We have notified the local property manager of your feedback so that adjustments can be made. We hope to host you again soon!
