The views were great! The room was clean and I couldn’t have asked for anything nicer! My kids especially enjoyed having 3 different pools! Definitely would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
Deon S. May 2022
Coffee maker, but no coffee filters. Trash can but no trash bags. Nothing to clean dishes with and could have definitely used more towels. All things that could easily be addressed and would definitely create a much better experience for your next guests. I’m sure we’ll be booking again in the future.
Manager response:
Hi, Deon! We apologize if housekeeping missed stocking the starter kit we supply. Coffee filters are not included, but each guest should receive two trash bags for each trash can, dish soap, laundry soap, dishwasher tabs, and a sponge. Thank you!

Love the view, how clean they keep this facility, and convenience of walking to local eateries. Multiple pools, workout facilities and sauna. Morning walks on the beach. Condo 1307 could use some replacements. Sofa beds are not comfortable to begin with, but the current “mattress” should not be considered additional sleeping, it needs to be replaced. Additional hangers (currently 3) are needed. Needs a new broom and spatula. Vacasa was good about contacting day after check in and when contacted in the evening due to sleeper sofa linens not provided Hayley arrived promptly with them. It would be nice to have a guest book for convenience on gate code, fitness/pool hours, check out instructions on linens/towels. Able to figure this all out, but a handbook would’ve been nice to refer to. Overall if there were some additions we would book this condo again.

The condo itself was comfortable, Greta location, clean. Perfect for a beach stay with family. Unfortunately the main pool and hot tub were closed for construction. Wish we would have known this before booking. Also, the one hot tub they did have was lukewarm and I asked 3 people to look into turning it up as the weather was cold. No luck. It should be an easier ask. But once the pool is back up, it is a wonderful place to stay
Marilyn T. Mar 2022
Being able to see dolphins, birds, waves coming in. Having multiple pools, exercise equipment, etc. Good location.
Condo was fine, could use a bit of makeover, change or update couch. 2nd bedroom was difficult to use. Finally used streaming.
Overall experience was very good in spite of a leak in 2nd bath from AC on above floor and electrical outage and loss of elevators when checking out. Would recommend this unit!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Marilyn. We apologize for any inconvenience the temporary power outage may have caused. The power and elevators are in working order. The leak in the bathroom has been fixed. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We hope to host you again.

This home is very clean and comfortable with tile floors in the kitchen and main living areas and new laminate flooring in the bedrooms. Kitchen is all white cabinets and appliances with a double stainless steel sink. The kitchen did lack some essentials like an electric mixer and could use another casserole dish and cookie sheet. We enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner for Six and the dinning table was plenty big enough for all of us and all the fixings. Also I would be remiss if I didn't mention the view, which is magnificent, . . . a beautiful view of the Gulf and beaches from both the living area and the master bedroom. So what more could you ask for?
Manager response:
Hi, Carlos! We appreciate you bringing the kitchen inventory to our attention. The property manager will go through and replace any missing items. We're delighted to read you otherwise enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again!

The location is great to restaurants and the view beautiful.
James B. Sep 2021
Vacasa's customer service is great! They've always gone above and beyond for us. The condo was nice, clean. Good amenities. The TV remotes need batteries and the master bath could use a clean shower curtain liner. I'd stay here again.
Sherry H. Aug 2021
Room was great. Clean and up high could see ocean every night. Loved it.
James R. Aug 2021
Great location and facilities were good overall. Very simple process to book and get into the room. Very happy!
Peggie S. Jul 2021
The stay was lovely, we really had a good time being here. I only wish we had booked early spring, maybe we could have stayed at Crystal Towers our entire vacation.
Mary J. Jun 2021
Pros: Great location, lots of room, beds were comfy, big kitchen, nice balcony, great view of the water.
Cons: pool across the street was dirty. There was floating mucus and other debris in it. The shower curtain was dirty and the kitchen smelled faintly of urine.
Manager response:
We are so glad you stayed with us, Mary. The pool is regularly cleaned, so we are sorry to read you found it dirty in any way. The shower curtain has been replaced, and we will keep a nose out for any unpleasant smells. Thank you!
Leah B. Jun 2021
I took photos of the melted ice cream cone under one bed; the nasty used sheet on the let out bed with hair and crumbs. A utensil had stuck food on it . Just not cleaned good at all!! Sorry; just being honest. We loved the skywalk & pools!
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness concerns you encountered during your stay with us. Our team of housekeepers takes pride in their cleanliness standards, as it is a top priority service we provide for every guest prior to check-in. We are disappointed to see that this concern was not reported to us during your stay as we would have been happy to assist. We have passed your feedback along to our housekeeping staff so they are aware of your concerns. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!
Brenda L. Jun 2021
Nice Place, beware of under the beds ( left overs). Overall very clean. Be sure to bring what you need. They do have dishes but no other. I have been places that at least have salt/pepper, sugar, maybe even coffee with filters.
Manager response:
Hi Brenda, thank you for staying with us and taking the time to leave feedback. We're happy that you had a great time and enjoyed the home! Please note that perishables and pantry items like oils and spices, including coffee and K-cups, are not provided in order to ensure our high standards of cleanliness and sanitation are continuously met. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and we hope to host you again soon!
