Destiny By The Sea
We loved the location of Destiny By the Sea. Quiet community with good access to beach. We were disappointed in the quality of Beach Blessings. The house definitely needs some upkeep. The maintenance problems we encountered were addressed though during our stay.
This property is tired, in need of much needed repairs and proper quality control of the management company is not there for a home of this caliber. The outdoor furniture lacked cushions to sit on & those that were available were torn or dirty. The main floor outdoor ceiling leaked in multiple areas making it difficult to enjoy this feature of the home. There were weeds in the area surrounding the outdoor pool. One of the ovens did not work in the kitchen. During our stay the ice maker broke & flooded the kitchen. Light bulbs were out in two bathrooms, linens were stained in the downstairs bedroom and a tv remote was not programmed to a TV in one of the master bedrooms. The property management team was quick to respond but always in a reactive process. I would not rent this home again or rent from this management company.
We appreciate all of your feedback on this home. All items mentioned have been taken care of or have been replaced. We hope that your travels bring you back soon. Thank you for choosing Ocean Reef Resorts
Nice property, but dusty, outside light was not working, we requested to have it fixed but no result
Nice property, but unfortunately we couldn’t enjoy all the amenities . Outside hot tub didn’t not have heated water (so basically it wasn’t even a hot tub) , the upstairs jacuzzi was not working, outside light by the hot tub was not working so it was dark. We requested to have some things fixed, they only brought gas for the grill but did not fix anything. It’s close to the beach so that is a big plus, but you can have a better option for the same money.
Nicolae, We are very sorry that you ran into these problems during your stay. Unfortunately the whirlpool will only heat if the pool itself is heated, because of that we do not on any of our sites list the property as having a hot tub. As for the jets in the whirlpool and bath tub they are disconnected because of the risk of Spa pool folliculitis. Please give us a call when you are ready to plan another trip to the beach and we can be sure to put you in a home that fits your needs.
Great place with a private beach
We had a great stay! We spent the week with my husbands family along with a bunch of little ones. The house was great and the kids loved the pool.
Zac, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. When you are ready to plan another great trip to the beach give us a call! Thank you for choosing Ocean Reef
Property Needs Improvement
We had a great vacation but were generally disappointed in the property and customer experience. For the amount our family paid, this property did not meet our expectations. We discovered on this trip that the house was for sale, and suspected that this was a reason for it's lack of maintenance.
Appliances were broken (dishwasher, microwave), cooktop surface was damaged, missing smoke detectors, a water leak above level 2 balcony occurred after rain storm, broken towel racks were discovered in restrooms, pool table was damaged, hot tub controls were not working. Neighbors were painting their house and painters had draped tarps over the wall and were working on ladders - which compromised privacy of the home and pool. We called Ocean Reef a number of times to report these miscellaneous items and while everyone we spoke to was polite, we did not feel our concerns were being addressed.
The check-in binder was essentially a list of things for which guests could be fined. No welcome packet. No instructions for appliances, electronics, or pool. No detergent provided for dishwasher or laundry.
We do not normally post reviews like this and realize that these are relatively small issues, but feel it is important for others looking at this home to know what to expect.
Stephen, We are very sorry that you ran into these problems during your stay. All items were addressed, as for the painter next door our hands were ties and there was nothing we could do. When you are ready to plan another trip to the beach give us a call and we can hand select a property that better fits your needs.
Property is nice but needs maintenance updates. Pool heater did not work, bathrooms dirty.
Unfortanely they were repairing roads so couldn’t park in driveway, They did give us a discount but inconvenient and noisy. Any time we called about maintenance they did respond quickly. Overall just needs maintenance done.
Debbie, We are very sorry to hear that you ran into this problem during your stay. We are very happy that you could be compensated for the inconvenience. Please let us know when you would like to plan another great trip to the beach!
