Nicely appointed, clean, and well represented by the pictures.

Our family's stay was just what we had hoped for. The condo is, if anything, even better than pictured, and the compound is impeccably maintained. We lucked out and had unseasonably warm weather for our stay, which allowed us to enjoy the lazy river and outdoor pool and hot tubs every day during our visit. The balcony was perfect for reading and sharing meals or just watching the waves. The kitchen was generously equipped with high-quality appliances, cookware, and tools. We brought our own games and reading materials, but there was a wide selection that would suit most tastes/interests had we come empty-handed. We hope to go back some day. A wonderful place!

This unit was overall very clean and provides enough space for a intimate family gathering. It has all the comforts of home. The only thing is that when we arrived the patio furniture was still in the living room so we had to move everting outside to be able to use the living room kitchen area. We took the upside and thought of it as a positive that said great we can arrange how we want it on the patio. It’s probably because we booked the property so last minute. The check in was easy. The front desk gentleman was very polite and helpful. Checkout was a breeze. The views were amazing ! The master bedroom shower had some rust on the rain shower faucet that was clogged and the hard water stains so we opted not to use. No biggie but I would look into it. The patio door would lock occasionally but we were in a high rise so again no biggie. Just check into it. Overall I would say we would love to stay here again. My family loved it and it was all that we imagined and then some. We wanted to extend but was unsure of how to make that happen since were having to check out at 10am that morning. The owners of this property tastefully decorated this to make it feel like home. Hope to stay here again !

Unit is nice- good location. Beautiful complex. The furnishings are nice and the unit is well stocked. It’s not a great layout for a family because there’s no indoor table to eat on and the furniture only supports 2-3 people watching tv but if you’re mostly out and about it’s functional and kitchen is well stocked. Could stand new mattresses but overall things were modern and worked well. Complex has a lot of great amenities- only issue we ran across was that several games in game room are in bad relaid and not working correctly. All that said- I would never book this again. The rental company is awful! We were given a different unit than was pictured on the booking site. I had intentionally not chosen this unit because it was Thanksgiving and we needed a table and full size beds. I had seen this unit on another site cheaper than the one I booked but chose to pay more given the setup and amenities of the other unit. When I got to the property I pointed out the mistake. I get that mixups happen and it was likely too late for them to fix it so we were ok just staying there - I raised the issue to Vacasa and asked them to remedy the price difference. Not only did they not do that- I got an email back blaming and saying that they post inaccurate pictures and then just give people what’s available. Clearly Vacasa is responsible for their own postings and sets the prices- someone has to give the info and pictures- so what they were really saying is that they misrepresented the unit and charged me more intentionally and now they won’t fix it. Terrible rental company! Book at Diamond Beach but never a unit managed by Vacasa.

Very professional staff at front desk. The room was clean. There were some small areas of concern.
A short was left behind the couch from a previous person. Underwear was left in the dryer from a previous person. The sliding door lock was broken and presented a concern because we have toddler age children. The bed mattress were a little too hard.
Overall it was nice and the view was beautiful!!!
Manager response:
Marek, thank you for sharing your feedback! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we are sorry for any oversight as this is not common nor indicative of our standards. We will pass your comments regarding our misstep in cleanliness onto our management team for review with our housekeeping staff. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The condo resort was perfect! We only left for one day to have a beach day. The remainder of the time was spent at the resort pool.
