October 2016 Stay
We had a wonderful time staying in Heavenly Days. The website pictures do not do this house justice. It is spacious, beautifully decorated, well-appointed, and very clean. One of the best Seaside rentals I have ever seen. Ocean and sunset views from the top floor. The Sandpiper staff was also amazing - very attentive and responsive. Thanks for a great vacation!
Perfect home in perfect location
We loved, loved, loved this home! I am actually surprised to see the previous review who thought the home to be strange (?)- . It is beautiful! All 4 bathrooms look like they were recently re-done and at a high level. The floors are GORGEOUS and also seem to have been re-finished recently. The home was very clean as well! We prefer the west side of Seaside so the location could not have been more perfect for us. There were also 2 complimentary bikes left for us which we used daily. Again, I can't say enough about the great things this home/Seaside has to offer! We will stay here again!
September 2016 Stay
Great house with plenty of room! Nicely renovated bathrooms with comfy linens. We needed some basics - dish soap, salt & pepper, broom - otherwise house was stocked just fine. We've rented many times through Sandpiper and it's always been smooth. Would recommend to others!
House needs work
We just left "Heavenly Days" and we thought it was a strange house. Seemed like every day we found 2 new things that were complete head scratchers. The house needs a lot of upgrades.
-very odd choice to use satellite instead of cable, seeing as the house is on the coast. There will obviously be lots of rain (which there was) and the TV almost never had a signal.
-the shower in the master bathroom leaks very badly
-the TP holder in the master bathroom and the hand towel holder in another bathroom are loose, and a shower curtain rod came down because my aunt put a towel on it. We reattached it better than it was before.
-there's no pantry
-the "first aid kit" consists of nothing but a drain hose
-there's an outdoor shower with a spigot for washing feet, but it's so close to the ground you can't even fit your whole foot under it.
-the back door doesn't lock
-the driveway is almost useless due to a line of plants on the left side of it making it very difficult to park and be able to get out of the car.
-the blinds were all tied up so intricately that it was a huge ordeal to roll them down. It took a long time and we had to stand on a stool to get them all.
-in one of the downstairs bedrooms, there were 2 twin beds...and one is blocking the closet entirely.
-there was a very annoying lack of silverware and coffee mugs. My family drinks coffee and 4 mugs was not enough for a house that accommodates 8. And make sure to bring your own coffee filters.
We obviously had a good time cause it's Florida, but the house itself kind of made us cringe. It needs a lot of work.
I must say, we find the review equally strange. We have never received such feedback on Heavenly Days. This house is one of the most updated homes in Seaside boasting high ceilings, open living and dining spaces, updated lighting and appliances throughout, custom bathrooms with beautiful tiling and marble counter tops, all new beds and designer bedding. The list goes on and on how wonderfully and meticulously designed this cottage truly is. That said, here is what I can tell you about your comments…the TV is an owner choice and one we can certainly raise with them should they decide to change. Service providers in the area are limited. Rain does not help this or TV and Internet service in the area. We checked the master bathroom and could not find any leak. We will continue to watch this. We have tightened the TP holder and hand towel holder and shower rod in the bathroom – thank you for bringing this to our attention. We try to leave cupboard space empty in the kitchen for pantry items to make up for the lack of pantry here. Not sure where the first aid kit came from – perhaps a previous guest as we don’t provide them. The spigot is really more to wash away the sand that comes down from using the outdoor shower – it was not designed for feet. We did not see a problem with locking the back door. We do have hurricane doors, so perhaps this was the issue here – you must pull the handle up to lock. We have never had any complaints about the driveway, but as you know – space in general is limited in Seaside. We have purchased more coffee mugs for the house and will take inventory of any other missing kitchen items to ensure there are enough for the amount of people the cottage sleeps. Again, we’re sorry that Heavenly Days wasn’t your cup of tea, but we truly believe it to be a wonderful cottage with several very appealing qualities. I hope I shed some light on some of the reasons for various things and we thank you for bringing some of these minor maintenance issues to our attention so we can ensure they are taken care of for the next renter.
Loved this house!
4 adults, 2 babies and 3 toddlers fit perfectly in this beautiful home. We loved the 2 master suites -one upstairs and one downstairs! The bathrooms were gorgeous! The short walk to the beach and family pool was amazing! We never got in our car all week except to go get groceries. We love Seaside and are grateful to have enjoyed a week there with sweet memories made.
March 2016 Stay
Other than the rain we encountered out stay has been very pleasant. I would definitly come back here.
