Reviewer Comments:

We had a fantastic stay at Chardonayay! We usually stay right on the beach, so we were a little apprehensive about the location of the home. We were pleasantly surprised at how close and convenient the beach access was. Simply walk out your back door, down a lovely short sidewalk and you are there. No shoes required! The home, located in the gated Waters Edge, is in a fantastic location. Walking/biking distance to all Rosemary has to offer, as well as Alys, Inlet, Seagrove, etc. The bikes were a wonderful benefit. Our whole family used them every single day to explore all the beautiful areas around us. Being spread out over 3 levels worked out great for our family of 6. Everyone had an area to retreat to without disturbing one another. The pool, although a bit smaller than we anticipated, was so nice to have when we were done with the beach, but not done being outside. The home was quite clean, decorated beautifully and had ample space. Royal Destinations was the best management company we've ever dealt with. Inevitably there were a few issues during our stay. They responded promptly and professionally and remedied the issues in a timely manner. We were impressed! As there is always room for improvement--the third level of this home is quite warm. They have installed multiple fans and clearly are trying to address the issue, but it appears the A/C just isn't powerful enough to completely cool that level. The section of beach reserved for the Waters Edge is very nice and not too crowded. The chairs and umbrellas, however, are extremely close together. Too close. Some interior paint in the drop zone and on the stairs could use a touch up. The back door needs to be repainted. The tub in the guest room on 2nd floor and the bathroom on third floor could use updating. Remote check-in is a must. Driving to the office is quite inconvenient. Minor details. Overall, we had a fantastic trip and look forward to coming back in the future!

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you so much for the nice review! We appreciate the feedback. Chardonyay is a great property that sleeps 14 comfortably. The back yard and pool deck is one of the larger ones in Water's Edge, making it great for families with children. We usually use the winter months to do our touch up painting, deep cleaning, and general off season projects to make sure the home is in top shape for the next year. We are happy to hear that you were able to take advantage of the complimentary beach chairs, private beach access, and complimentary bikes that come with the house. We hope you come and stay with us again soon!

Reviewer Comments:

It was a beautiful house and nice experience. There were a few things that could have been improved. The wine glasses had a strange smell and seemed dirty. We had to run them through the dishwasher. Also, there were several cockroaches we found in the house and a bunch of ant piles outside the house.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you so much for the review! We do apologize about the wine glasses. We've notified our cleaning crew to make sure that it doesn't happen again. We would have been happy to send pest control over to take care of those items for you if you called. Please don't hesitate to call next time. Chardonyay is a great property that sits within the gated community of Water's Edge. It has a private, heated pool and a very spacious pool deck. The community is located next to Rosemary Beach and is within walking distance to make shops and restaurants in the area.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you do much for the review of Chardonyay! This home is newly renovated and is professionally decorated. It's very spacious and sleeps 14 comfortably. The location of the home is also great because you are close to shopping and dining at Rosemary and Alys Beach. The pool deck is also one of the larger ones in Water's Edge and the home has a propane grill as well as a Big Green Egg.

Just a 2 minute walk to the beach. Super cute, clean & comfortable house. Loved the layout & how well stocked the kitchen was! Only complaints were: no dining table(inside or outside), pool area full of huge weeds, 3rd story gets warm.

Owner's Response: Hi Mrs. Broussard, thank you so much for the feedback. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Chardonyay. This home has recently been remodeled and is under new management with Royal Destinations since the start of Summer season. We love the location and the layout of the home too! The pool deck is especially large compared to other homes in Water's Edge. We wanted to let you know that these items are definitely on our radar, but we were unable to fully address before peak season. We and the homeowner are aware of the landscaping, third floor warmth, and lack of dining table. We have just signed up for a landscaping maintenance plan, so there will be no more weeds after their first scheduled visit. We have plans to add an outdoor dining area and possibly a screen porch as well. We have installed a new ceiling fan for the third floor bedroom to help with the warmth and plan to fix the issue permanently after summer. We hope this helps address your suggestions and we hope you come back and stay at Chardonyay again next year!

Reviewer Comments:

ChardonYaY is located in our favorite 30A community, Water's Edge. We love the location of Water's Edge and this was our 4th stay here. It takes just a couple of minutes to walk from house to beach, down a beautiful palm tree lined walkway. You are also in walking distance to restaurants and shops. One of our favorite things to do each morning is walk to nearby Alys Beach and enjoy the nature trails there. ChardonYaY is a roomy house with spacious bedrooms and baths. It is nicely decorated and was very clean upon arrival. The kitchen is well stocked and all appliances in home are in excellent working condition. The pool/pool area is one of the best in community...large with lots of chairs and loungers. New construction is happening right next door as previously mentioned by prior guest. However, this was only a minor inconvenience for us. There was noticeable sawdust in pool/pool area but not enough to deter us from enjoying it. The saws were loud at times if you were outside but not really that noticeable indoors. Sawdust did have to be wiped out of chairs on decks before we sat but was a minimal amount. The only issue I think worth addressing is the temperature on the 3rd floor. It seemed to be hot at all times. The other two floors were extremely comfortable and cooled quickly. We didn't utilize this floor for sleeping but for others who might it could be an issue. Caitlin, Jenny and Marissa at Royal Destinations provided excellent customer service...courteous, responsive and professional.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you so much for the detailed review! We appreciate detailed feedback from guests and love to hear about your favorite parts of the home. For you, it sounds like the location and pool deck were the highlights of your stay. Water's Edge is a fantastic location and ChardonYay has recently been renovated. The pool deck is very spacious! It's the perfect area to lounge by the pool or grill out with your family. We are so sorry to hear about the sawdust again! In an effort to be more proactive, we will begin blowing off the pool deck twice a week until the outdoor construction is complete. Luckily, the loud and messy work at the house next door has since been completed. We will also check the third floor air flow to make sure it is working properly. Again, thank you for the feedback and we hope you come and stay with us again soon!
