I want to note a few things that I hope will be helpful for future guests.
The location is excellent, you are very close to the pool and the shuttle pickup for the beach (which is also very very nice). Overall, the house was as described in terms of the layout and amenities. The third floor loft was excellent for the kids to have their own space. The kitchen was stocked with pretty much everything you need (except coffee filters!) so I was pleased with all of those things.
Here are a few things that did not make me happy, especially considering what you have to pay to go to the beach these days. We called about the dryer not working on or 2nd day there. 9 days later, and I still have not heard from anyone, nor did anyone ever show up. We got the dryer fixed the next day thanks to having a friend that was handy. Our 3rd day, the washing machine stopped working. I called that day (twice), I called the next day, and the following day - 4 phone calls over 3 days. No one ever showed up, no one ever called to follow up. No communication. The presented an issue for our house as we had 3 families staying for a softball tournament and uniforms had to be washed. We ended up having to take everything 2 miles down the road to a friends place. I certainly understand that maintenance can get busy and backed up, but to just never show up and never call was unacceptable.

A few other odd and end things at the house:
-2nd floor water pressure is extremely poor
-1st floor water pressure will knock down, and the shower curtains are cloth so the floor gets soaked. We finally just covered the floor in towels for the reset of the week after the 2nd day to keep from falling when getting out the shower.
-The freezer door doesn't close all the way unless you force it.
-Parking -I read the reviews about the parking craziness and I too though - "ah well, folks are probably exaggerating a little". The are NOT exaggerating. At all. We rented a 5 bedroom house for 4 families and you can only park 3 cars in the driveway, even if you spend 40 minutes moving every car to perfectly fit to ensure that no tires are in the road. ​
-If you have someone get in late, say around 1:00 AM and park on the side to unload after driving 5 hours, the security team will Seek you out and find you, and even come into your house uninvited. Completely unprofessional. Overall, the house was OK but there are some things that need to are improved.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Chris. We are so sorry for the details that were amiss during your stay. We apologize for the maintenance issues you experienced and for the trouble you had reaching a member of our team. We have made our local team aware of your concerns and they are working diligently to ensure all your concerns are addressed appropriately. We are also sorry to hear parking was a challenge for you at this location. Occasionally, during peak travel times, parking spots at our popular vacation homes can fill up fast. We do offer overflow parking for our guests at our nearby office location. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope to host you again

We considered our Vacasa stay a “mid to high” end stay; three story house with four full bathrooms. But the house was not well cleaned and very “worn!” Whoever is doing your walkthroughs needs to pay better attention. For the amount of money I spent I was disappointed in the upkeep. Last year I stayed in the same community but dealt with an individual. His standards for his home were higher…….
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with us, Anthony. We apologize for the house not being cleaned as thoroughly as is our standard. Please know that local staff is available to assist with any cleanliness issues you encounter while in the home. We encourage our guests to reach out to our 24/7 Guest Services Department with the contact information provided in the confirmation and check-in emails as our local staff is standing by should any needs arise. We hope you will give us a second chance to better serve you in the future!

I loved the home. It was very spacious and clean. It had all what we needed and the community was well kept. I loved the pool area. It gave us an additional fun factor that saved us a day or two of money. It was near Waffle House, Walmart and other shopping areas. I gave this home a 4 because the parking was TERRIBLE. We had a 5bedroom home with parking for only 2 cars. Where we had 4 vehicles. The parking lots were always full and there were security passing red towing tickets all the time. At some point of the trip we started parking at the Vacasa building on the highway which was like 5 min away. So it made us have to keep getting another vehicle to drop us back to our vehicle. Also the washer did not spin which left our clothing soaked. And the dryer did not get hot. Which made us have to dry one batch of clothing 3 times. Otherwise this place was cool. I wouldn’t recommend this home if you have more than two vehicles. While there are other homes in that same community with more parking spots.
