Good For The Price But Could Use Some Upgrades & Better Cleaning Service

  • 3 of 5

My first impression of the property was not good. The house had a musty smell and in the master bedroom there were hairs and dirt spots on the sheets and a spot of dried blood on the comforter. Nothing had been dusted. I took pictures of all of this. I contacted Lisa, who promptly got back with me and said she would send her cleaning lady back. In the meantime I started to clean up so my family could get comfortable. The bathrooms were very clean but there were dirty utensils in the basket and the counters hadn't been wiped down in the kitchen (they are dark, so they looked clean but when I wiped them dirt/residue came off). When the cleaning ladies arrived they had attitudes and commenced to tell me that they had 5 people clean the house the day or so before and that it was dusty because it was an old house and that the linens had all been bleached and they use a service for that. Okay, I'm not going to argue. I'm on vacation. I asked them to take the linens off the beds upstairs and then let them leave. They were pissed they had to come, I certainly didn't want to ask them to do anything else. So I rewashed everything to ensure cleanliness and wiped down all the tables and counters myself, not really a big deal but still expected it to be clean upon arrival. Other things that were an issue. Only 2 rolls of toilet paper (small rolls) per bathroom, 2 dishwasher pods for the week and a very very very slow drying dryer, took HOURS to dry the linens. So I'd suggest bringing extra toilet paper and dish washing for the dishwasher. The knives are very dull, hard to cut stuff. There are only 5 beach towels, which for us was fine but bring more if you need them. The beach chairs are very used and a couple of them broken. Probably should all be replaced because even the not broken ones were in bad shape. Upstairs hall bathroom tub has a ton of hair in it so water doesn't drain well. It's really minor things that can easily be addressed so overall I'm not unhappy, just a little disappointed. Now for the good. Great price for the area. Great location. Golf cart is almost new and very handy. Water gets super hot, which was nice when cleaning and showering. The kitchen is well stocked. Owner was very attentive and nice (she lives out of state so I can understand why things got overlooked). I probably wouldn't stay at this particular property again but I would recommend it for being budget friendly and a good location.

Nice house...good location

  • 4 of 5

Our main reason for choosing this home was because it has a golf cart. We needed one more mode of transportation while staying is Sandestin. The golf cart was very nice and got us around where we wanted to go!

The home is really a 2 bedroom house made into a 3 bedroom -- with an addition/remodeling of space downstairs into a master "bedroom" ..with no closets or bathroom attached. There is a full bath downstairs by front entrance. It was fine for us and see the reasoning for not putting a child's bedroom downstairs. The bedrooms upstairs were nice sized/roomy. The living room was spacious enough with comfy,soft large sectional sofa. (You could easily sleep one or two more on that sofa!)

We had a nice stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.

The owner was helpful and easy to work with during the booking process!

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great trip to Sandestin! The owners of the house have thought of everything. They were also easily accessible for any questions that we had, and so very nice! The house was well equipped and spacious! We loved using the golf cart to get around the resort. We all loved the Baytowne area. The beach was a few minutes away in the cart, and the drive there is so pretty. We highly recommend this property!
