Wonderful quiet beach away from crowds!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are teachers and consider ourselves very picky when it comes to comfort and cleanliness. The king bed was one of the best nights sleep I have ever had. The condo was very quiet and clean and met our expectations perfectly. Although the building itself is not new, it is a lower rise condo so the elevators were not busy.

The beach is clean, quiet and away from all the crowds. One of the best things was free beach chairs and umbrella because you don't have to pack it all! There is easy access to many surrounding restaurants, shopping and attractions. Felicity Diamond was easy to book through,, quick to respond and just an email away. We will be back for sure! :)

Gulfport, MS

Not our greatest VRBO experience

  • 2 of 5

First, let me start with the pros. The condo itself is pretty much as described. Ms. Diamond responded promptly with check-in info once she received our payment, which I appreciated. We liked the property and the free beach service is a nice plus. It is also conveniently located to both Destin and Fort Walton Beach. The view of the Gulf from the condo balcony is fabulous.

But for us, the cons heavily outweighed all of this. The unit is on the second floor right above the pool, and we found that there was often pool noise late into the evening that we could hear in the den area. The unit had an unkempt feel to it. It was musty smelling. The master toilet seat was stained. A whole set of dirty dishes had been put away into the cupboard and silver ware drawers (discovered when we were cooking the second night). There was one set of working batteries among about 8 remotes; it took us a while to figure out how to work everything until we figured out none of the remotes had working batteries. There are a few key items missing from the kitchen such as a can opener (also discovered in the middle of cooking), a pot holder or something to use to get things out of the oven other than dish towels. One of the four chairs on the balcony was rusted and the bottom was broken so that it was unsafe/unstable to sit it (we moved it off to the side).

The biggest disappointment for us was how uncomfortable we found all the furniture in this unit to be. The master bed, while certainly large, was like sleeping on a concrete slab; it hurt every time I moved or turned over. The den furniture was also uncomfortable to sit on--one wicker chair and a sleeper sofa.

Owner's Response: I was quite surprised & disappointed to get a negative review on my unit, as we take great pride in maintaining an up-to-date & clean unit which is why many of our guests return each year! My personal cell number is provided to guests in the check-in instructions, & they are encouraged to call me with any concerns or questions. I NEVER received a phone call from this guest during her 5-night stay which I find surprising. We had previously had snowbirds stay in our unit just before these guests arrived, & I would have thought that if anything was missing, we would have been informed during the snowbirds 31-day stay. In fact, these long-term guests have requested to re-book our unit for next year. Additionally, the queen-sized sofa in the family room is a sleeper which I know are not the most comfortable. We have a temper pedic king mattress which is firm & provides support. I can only surmise that the guest was used to a softer mattress. I welcome all feedback from guests as we want to ensure that everyone has a comfortable & enjoyable stay.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four went to Okaloosa Island and loved staying at Pelican Isle. The condo was so clean and the owners we rented the condo from were so nice and easy to deal with. Great family getaway and fully equiped kitchen so we could eat in anytime we were too tired to go out. The views were fantastic and the Resort was well kept.
