Very Nice Condo
We would definitely come back to Woodlands Shores.
Very clean, had to make a maintance call and they were there less than 24 hours. Very close to the beach and very quite and peaceful while sitting on the balcony.
Only thing negative was there was no trash bags left for us but of course there are several near by stores to get things as you need them. ❤
Walking distance to the beach
I waited a couple weeks to write this review because I was conflicted about how I felt regarding this rental.
First the good! The location to Miramar Beach is wonderful. About a block or so walk is all. We walked back and forth with armloads of beach supplies with two kids with no problem. There is a shed out back filled with sand toys, umbrellas and other beach necessities. The condo is plenty large enough for a family of four and with three bathrooms, it was great! Having a washer and dryer was a lifesaver! The place looks (almost) like the photos. The keyless entry was super easy and it was nice to not have to remember to carry a key.
The cons.....the place was dirty! The carpet upstairs had stains all over it, there were bobby pins on the carpet by the bed, I am assuming from the previous renter....made me wonder if the carpet had been vaccumed. There was a razor in the bathroom, dishes in the cupboards were put away dirty and we had to rewash almost everything we needed before we used it. The tile floor was gross! I wiped up a spill from one of my kids and the wipe was BLACK after wiping up some water. I went to the closet to find a mop and it was absolutely disgusting! No wonder the floors are dirty, they are cleaning it with a filthy mop! The bathroom counters were clean around the sink, but when I wiped them down the corners had obviously not been touched recently. I went to the store and purchased cleaning supplies and washed the bathrooms down and cleaned the tile floor.....after rewashing the dishes in the cupboard.
I don't necessarily blame the condo owners for this as I am sure they don't live in the area and hire a service to clean between renters. However, if they are reading this, you should know they are not doing a great job. On the surface things look ok, but if you are used to a cleanish house, this does not cut it.
Overall, my kids liked it, my husband was ok, citing it was a beach rental and said "what did I expect?" I am on the fence. The location was a huge plus for me, the more than adequate space for our family, three bathrooms and washer and dryer are all pluses. If we were to go again, I would consider it, with the notion that I may have to clean up a bit before getting settled. Overall it is much better than paying for an overpriced hotel room and fighting the traffic down the road a couple miles. I would probably give it another chance in hopes the cleaning crew steps up their game.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your time at the beach! Our apologies, however, that the condo was not up to ship-shape conditions! We've contacted our Housekeeping Manager as well as the Reservations Manager regarding the listed issues and will take care of it immediately. Thank you so much for your feedback!

My biggest concern was the directions to the town house. We arrived in Destin and took 45 minutes to find Ellis road. The road is no longer listed as Emerald Coast Parkway. It is 98. I was told before I booked, that I could see the ocean which was across the road. Only if I stood on the roof would I be able to see the water which was a two block walk. I am not complaining about the walk or distance but I should have been told. The skylight was so noisy when it rained, I could not sleep one night. The town house was nice enough, beds comfortable . Furniture was a little on the rough sign but you expect it for a rental. I would rate it a 3 1/2 to a 4 star
Our apologies that you were having trouble with the directions; however, according to Google Maps it is listed as Emerald Coast Pkwy W as well. Did you speak to someone directly at Panhandle Getaways regarding the view of the ocean? We appreciate your feedback. The next time you're planning a trip down, plese call us at 850-588-8125 and we'll help you select the perfect unit for you and your family.
