Linda C. Oct 2022
I’m going to start with the positives. The condo is pretty, with nice furnishings and a complete kitchen. The shower was also nice - good water flow, felt like you actually got clean in there. You also cannot beat the proximity to the beach. It was nice to walk outside and only have to go a short distance to embrace the beach bum life.
Now for the problems we had. The bed is horrendous. It’s just lumpy and hard in weird places. We’ve been back for 3 weeks and my husband has had a significant sciatic issue since our stay. If you have any history of back problems, be forewarned this bed probably isn’t going to help that.
Next issue is the home is very humid. It would help to have a dehumidifier in the home. Note a deal breaker, but it can be weird to have a layer of wetness to everything.
We actually loved our stay and if it weren’t for the problems with sleeping would definitely be back to stay here again. It was a great location and we had a blast. The bed is the real deal breaker for us.
Manager response:
Thank you for spending your recent getaway with us and for sharing your review, Linda.

We sincerely apologize for the issues that detracted from your experience and appreciate you bringing these items to our attention. We have passed your feedback to our management team so they can assess the bed condition, as well as check for any humidity in the home. Thank you again for this valuable information as we always welcome the opportunity to improve. We hope to have another chance to impress you on a future stay!

The condo is very nice and well equipped. The location is wonderful overlooking the pool and the ocean. The beach is perfect and easy to get to plus the area restaurants are very good. We will definitely stay here again.

Loved the view of the ocean from the condo! Very convenient walk to the beach and the interior decor was charming. The downside to our location is our condo was next to the laundry room and people rolled their loud carts around in the morning to wash their clothes. The condo had almost everything we needed, but complimentary coffee and tea included have also been appreciated.

Nice place. A little tight on space but fine for just two. Only real complaint is that it seems near impossible to control the humidity in the unit, even with the air on constantly and the sliding balcony door closed. Bathroom towels remained damp all week. But the proximity to the beach is great. We enjoyed the pool as well.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, David! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the home. We regret we were not notified of the issues with humidity. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager who will reach out to our vendor to look into this further. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to impress you in the future!

Have rented in Durant Station for a few years. It is a great location with wonderful oceanfront views from the balconies. First time in this condo though.
Negatives: The unit could use some general maintenance and a deep cleaning. Kitchen cabinets did not appear very clean so we kept all of our food items in our boxes. While the air conditioner maintained a 72 degree temp., it did not seem to take the humidity out of the air. Appears to be black particles around the A/C vents? A prior review mentioned A/C issues so not sure if it was fully resolved. Could definitely use a broom to try and keep the place clean (when there for 2 weeks sand will accumulate). Every time that it rained, the balcony floor accumulated a lot of water. We actually had to purchase a broom to clean it off.
Only receive 1 wifi connection option where the other condo that I rented had a couple to choose from. The connection was weak much of the time. I was told that some units have a booster. That would be valuable.
Positive: Kitchen is mostly well stocked but could definitely use a few more glasses. The unit is located beside the laundry room and we were concerned about noise but it was quiet. In fact, you only have one neighbor on your right which cuts down on noise while enjoying the balcony.
When I mentioned the cleanliness to Vacasa they refunded me the cleaning fee. Vacasa reps were very nice to work with.

Manager response:
Sheri, thank you for reviewing your experience with us, we are pleased you enjoyed the location and found our kitchen to be well-stocked. That being said, we apologize for the issues you encountered that detracted from your stay. We have shared your comments with the local manager who has addressed the cleanliness concerns with housekeeping. We hope the compensation you received helped alleviate some of your frustration. They also noted that the WiFi issue was the result of an electrical storm that had come through the area and it is in good working order now. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

Great single bed room condo - excellent kitchen. Just the right amount of supplies. Good coffee maker. Plenty of cabinet space for the "stuff" we brought down. Bed slept good and the couch was comfortable.
Now the "But" - The condos A/C unit needs checked. It did cool things down nicely - BUT it did not take the humidity out of the air. 69 - 85% humidity. Salt in the salt shaker clumped and had water beads on the top. Bath towels, hanging on the rack, did not dry out over night. This why I gave you a 3 and not a 5.


Manager response:
Hi, John! We're glad you took the time to leave your review so we can have maintenance check the humidity levels. Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience. Hopefully we can host you again someday!

An HVAC system change was done during our last day. So in the morning on checkout day, right in the middle of eating breakfast at 8 AM, a team of technicians knocked on the door and requested to enter to perform a "scheduled system replacement". They stated that the company informed them that it was okay because the unit was vacant. So we had to finish our breakfast as they worked. We had to use the bathroom, shower, pack, and do checkout tasks around the workers. Nothing against the techs needing to do their work. But shame on the booking and/or management company/service for its incompetence toward this oversight. The unit was clean and nice, but the AC was only sufficient in the kitchen/living areas. It was too warm in the bedroom/bathroom even when we adjusted the thermostat in an attemlt to compensate. So sleeping comfort was subpar. I suppose that is why the HVAC system change was necessary. But if that problem was known, then it have been disclosed to us prior to our stay. Furthermore, the replacement work should not have been scheduled for any point during our stay.
Manager response:
David, we sincerely apologize for the AC issue you encountered that detracted from your stay. Please know that our guests' comfort and satisfaction are of the utmost importance to us and we are sorry we dropped the ball on scheduling this work. We have shared your comments with the appropriate parties. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again and better impress you with the relaxing vacation experience that we are known for.

Location was perfect and nice balcony with ocean view. Check in and out was very easy. Customer service was friendly but had to call too many times for issues.

The air conditioning did not work and it wasn't til the 3rd day of calling when we got a small portable air unit. It was over 80 degrees in the condo. Windows do not open and fans only worked so much. The screen door for the balcony was broken at the bottom and very hard to open and close. It needed replaced. The thermostate was reporting multiple issue with the AC the full month before our visit and they could have fixed before our stay.

The tub took over an hour to drain as it was really clogged and you could see how gross it was. They couldn't get maintenance to fix until after our stay.

Don't worry about cooking as the oven never fully reached the proper temperature. Also the keurig couldn't be used as the filter was black and rotting. Has to use the regular coffee pot.

The positives: kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils for cooking and eatting along with plates bowls and cups. Coffee pot was easy to use. The check in and out was very easy and the location is perfect with a great view. Plenty of parking and in a nice quiet area. The room smelled normal with no odors and the place was clean. The balcony was nice with two tall chairs and table.

We would stay again but need better maintenance and deep cleaning before we check In.

Enjoyed the balcony very much, listening to the birds and waves. All the furniture was comfortable including the bed. Kitchen was well supplied. I liked that I could text with Vacasa with questions and that Vacasa's departure checklist is minimal.
