The view is absolutely stunning. The unit could use some freshening up with some paint and updated decorations but it was very nice. The bed was incredible comfortable. We didn't use the pull out bed but the couch itself was comfortable.

This place was clean and perfect for my small family. Balcony overlooking the beach and the building with direct beach access. I want to rate it 5 stars, but I’m only rating it 4 and here is why:
1. Pull out couch bed was horrifically uncomfortable.
2. the bedroom was not as cool as the rest of the condo and had no overhead lighting, only small bedside lamps. We like it to be cold when we sleep and the bedroom was not cool enough for us to sleep comfortably, but that is a personal preference and not necessarily the units fault. More lighting would have been helpful.
3. If they are not going to provide a washer and dryer in the unit, and make the guests use the laundry facility on sight, then they should provide a way to make change from dollar bills. I don’t carry $20.00 worth of quarters around, and it would have been nice to stick a couple dollars in a machine to get quarters for the washer and dryer. That was a pretty nice inconvenience because I had to drive around looking for a gas station or business who would give me quarters.
4. Blinds on the balcony door were broken so we couldn’t close them or keep the light out when trying to sleep in.

This rental was in the perfect location with an amazing view of the ocean from the balcony. It was so clean and pristine which made our stay even more comfortable. I’d highly recommend.
Gabrielle R. Jul 2021
The only thing I loved about this location is the location. We loved that it was on the beach and that’s about the only thing I loved about this place. It really needs work done to the room. They need to invest in a new cleaning team. Because our room was not cleaned or it looked like it was not cleaned. We had a bathroom rug that reeked of urine. Hair all over the shower walls. Walls that had mold on it. Walls that needed to be repainted. Baseboards that were cracking off or broken. The back sliding blinds some were broken or missing. This place needs work. I would not come back. I’ll be looking into other places next time.
Manager response:

Deborah P. Oct 2020
This condo is in need of some serious help . The whole place needs a total makeover and new appliances.The walls need paining , the ceilings need replacing and it needs new furniture . I would never stay here again.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Deborah! We are so sorry you were caught in the middle of delayed upgrades due to COVID. The owner is actively working on repairs: the ceiling has been painted, a new refrigerator has been ordered, and we are getting quotes for painting the walls. We hope to see you again!

I loved the view from the balcony and the pool was perfect! The waves were too obnoxious to swim in the ocean so we hit the pool instead. The whole stay was perfect.
Kimberly G. Jul 2020
Loved the view and easy access to the beach. However, there certain things in the condo that need attention. All and all it was a great vacation, and so glad I came during this trying time.
Suzanne B. Jul 2020
Location was terrific, so was the facility as a whole. Condo wasn't great. Kitchen not very well stocked, patio furniture ready for the garbage. We were rationed 1 bath towel, 2 hand towels, 2 garbage bags & 1 roll of t.p. for 2 people for a weeks stay. Good thing we brought our own.
Manager response:
Hi, Suzanne! Thank you for choosing a Vacasa home, and for your valuable feedback. We regret to hear the home was not to your liking, and have notified our local staff about your concerns with the patio furniture. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please note that we only provide a standard set of supplies to get you started in the home, and these will not be replenished during your visit. We encourage guests to bring any specialty kitchen items needed in case they are not in the home upon arrival. We appreciate your response and will use this information to improve this home for future reservations. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future!

Loved the view of the gulf, the balcony, and the chairs and umbrella on the beach.
Kellye L. Jun 2020
There is an overwhelming odor of mildew/mold throughout the unit. There is evidence of water damage and mildew in various places in the unit (mold seeping through wall, water damage in ceiling, mold on baseboards, etc.).
They have placed an odor neutralizer in the unit in order to try and cover the strong smells (but it’s not successful in lessening any smell of mildew/mold).

The unit definitely needs some time and work in order to maintain it properly for guests.

Other than this, there were no issues with the room layout, location, or amenities at the property.
Manager response:
Hi, Kellye! Thank you for letting us know about your experience. We are sorry to read you had any experience with mildew or mold; we were unable to find any evidence of this, nor have we heard any further concerns from our guests. The home will be painted this winter to help with old stains. We hope to see you again!
