Reviewer Comments:

First of all, let me say that I'd actually consider buying one of these units as a place to come annually and rent it out throughout the season. What a beautiful part of the country! The beaches are pristine, the owner of this unit was such a delight to deal with. There is no check in or check out, just plug in your code and you're in! The lazy river is the icing on the cake. If there's a question on what to do, don't stress, just go float in the lazy river! If I can offer some constructive criticism, which is very minimal, this unit had some remote control issues. There's at least 2 remotes missing, so I'd suggest buying new ones to go with each TV and then labeling them. I'd also recommend having some movies stocked in the unit, as there are DVD players in the house. It would have been nice to go to a selection of movies and pick one to watch. Other than this, I've got nothing negative to say. Destin West is a must visit and a wonderful, stress-free vacation! We will be back!

Reviewer Comments:

Unit was very nice. Would have been nice to have more hooks for shower towels or ever different colored/patterned towels so the 8 of us did not have to wash towels every day. Only 2 pot holders in the unit. Unit was clean but clearly some areas were not cleaned before our arrival like the couch bed, crumbs in the bed, found a thong in the washer. Decore was BEAUTIFUL. Need more seating in family room. No remote for the blue ray player. Wish the HOA would not allow smoking by the pools or on balconies. Renter was very responsive to questions before and during our stay. $30 fee for lost bracelet is crazy.

Owner's Response: Dear Ms. Cooper, Thank you for your review! We're so happy you enjoyed your vacation and appreciate you recommending us to your friends and loved ones! We are grateful for your feedback and take your comments to heart as we are always looking to improve our business. Although our units are cleaned and inspected from week to week, during these busy summer months, it is easy for us to miss things like a small item in the dryer and crumbs in the sleeper sofa. This is by no means an excuse, and we take cleanliness seriously. As fall approaches, each unit will be "deep cleaned" which is when we pull out stoves and refrigerators and the like to get every corner to prepare for the next season. We will be more diligent moving forward!

Reviewer Comments:

Frig freezer has never worked right even after several so-called "repairs". Vents must be filthy as pieces of suet/ash fly around the unit constantly, leaving dirty floors, counters, bed covers, clothing, etc. Sofa needs board for anyone w/back "issues". Black mold seems to cover areas in master shower which still "leaks" out some. This condo is very pretty, though, and has been suitable for us. Hoping "issues" will be addressed by time we return in Dec.

Owner's Response: Dear Ms. Haworth, I'm so sorry to hear about your concerns regarding your lengthy stay in our beautiful condo. After speaking to you and your husband, I'm happy to know that you were pleased with the cleanliness of this unit upon arrival. This is most important to us! It is common during a four month stay that the condo would get dusty and that the shower would get moldy if not cleaned regularly. In this climate, showers must be cleaned daily or they will produce mold in about 3-4 days. We do provide housekeeping services for this type of stay at an extra charge to our guests, but I understand that you did not utilize this service. I also see that you were displeased with our efforts to fix the freezer, which had been turned to the lowest setting causing it to freeze solid and I'm certain we explained that the freezer needed to be thawed in order to work properly, which isn't something you chose to do. After defrosting, the freezer is now working properly. It is with high hopes that your stay was punctuated with more positive highlights than negative ones and since you've already booked to stay in the same condo even LONGER next year, I'm going to take that as a big YES! We are looking forward to your arrival!
