It was just ok for.what you pay per week

  • 3 of 5

Even though it says keep sliding doors shut to keep cool, which we did the front master bedroom stayed warm and after 2nd day the tub in master suite had no hot water. Also the beaches are a very good walk away and had dead fish everywhere.

Owner's Response: Hey Debbie, I am so sorry to hear about your vacation and hate that I didn’t know about your temperature issues. If I had known, I could have helped remedy your situation in what were ultimately quick fixes. In our final email sent to all guests, there are directions about our TWO thermostats in the condo. I also have framed notes above each thermostat in the condo to help you easily manage your temperature to meet your comfort level. We also have an extra fan we keep in the master bedroom closet and the overhead fan for more /airflow. As far as the tub running out of hot water, usually when many people are taking showers, that happens. You have to wait to let the water heat up again. If the showers had hot water, then the tub would have too as the water comes from the same water heater. Lastly, I wish I could control the tides in the gulf as well as the weather and guarantee clear water and sunny skies for every guest every day. But there are seasons we have jellyfish, seaweed, tropical storms, etc... and it is disappointing on your vacation to experience any one of these. I was also down at the beach the week you vacationed and only saw a few small fish. That's usually due to low oxygen in the water. It happens about once a year. For the future, please notify the owner of any issues you have so that they can help remedy the situation. I know when you texted me about not being able to turn on the hot tub, I was able to immediatly contact my hot tub caretaker and have him come over and help you to get it turned on. We are here to help! :) Sincerely, Shelley

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

The unit was nice and spacious. No odors or musty smells, which are important, I have been to this area for manys years, but have never stayed on bayside,enjoyed it very much, but would have liked to have walk out on to beach instead of dock, but did find park down on bayside that was nice.The check in was different than what we were use too, most places in by 2, but it was after 4,which I felt we lost nearly a day. I have one complaint, which I reported to Shelly that a strap was broke on hot tub and two sides of jets werent working,she said that she would contact guy, but he didnt come, also a step to get into tub would be helpful. We would definitely would like to come back again.

Owner's Response: Hey Donna, I am glad there were no smells in our condo. That is important! Yes, this is a bayside condo and not beachside. I try to make that very clear in my pictures and write-up so that guests are not surprised. It has it's unique qualities and being at Destin West you do get the best of both worlds. Thank you for the suggestion of the steps to get into the hot tub. I take it for granted that I can jump in. I did schedule my hot tub maintenance man to check the jets. He has been working for me for a very long time and is very dependable. I am sorry if somehow that got overlooked as that is unusual for him. But thank you for letting me know. I am glad to hear you would like to return! I hope so. We also have beachside condos if you would like to try that next year. Thanks again! Shelley
