About Jennifer Byers

We have loved Santa Rosa Beach and have been owners at the Legends since 2003. Once you experience a vacation along 30A, you will never want to go to another place filled with high-rises and crowds.

Jennifer Byers purchased this townhome in 2003

What makes this townhome unique

The Legends is a great location where you can enjoy the beach, pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, and sand volleyball. There are miles and miles of a paved bike path that is perfect for biking or running along 30A. Our unit is the most convenient directly overlooking pool/hot tubs/courts and is in the building closest to the boardwalk.

New in 2015, Tired in 2017

  • 2 of 5

Our family rented the Lazy Lobster over Spring Break 2017. I noticed when I read previous reviews that the most recent one was posted in 2015, so an updated review is probably in order. It seems the title description, "New Granite/Appliances/Sofas" may need a partial update as well.

Although the granite still looked new and the appliances are in good shape, the sofas and bed quilts pictured above are dirty and stained. The sofa that pulls out to a bed is in especially poor shape. Unfortunately, there is a pronounced sag in the cushions when folded up, and at least a six inch drop from the foot of the sofa bed to the head when it is pulled out. Perhaps, something is broken. We could not use it for sleeping and had our child sleep on an air mattress we brought instead. The bed quilts were very dirty, which has a clear explanation as to why. The checkout instructions specifically say NOT to strip the blankets or quilts from the beds for washing, or you will be charged an additional cleaning fee. I would have happily paid the additional fee to have that done prior to our arrival. The state of the bedding, along with the many stains on the couch, made the overall feeling of the condo dirty. As such, we spent the first hour of our vacation cleaning.

Although the next paragraph turns out to be quite a funny story, it speaks to the overall state of the unit. On our first night in the condo, my husband went to take a shower in the master bathroom, closing the bedroom door behind him. Following his shower, he could not open the bedroom door from the inside, and I, on the outside, could not open it either. Thankfully, we had some tools in our car, because I had to take the doorknob off the door! After passing my husband a few tools back and forth under the door, we still could not get the door latch to open. Finally, my husband resorted to taking the door off the hinges! Turns out the doorknob was broken. We were laughing at are situation at that point, but it is still rather disappointing that the condo has been used so hard without upkeep.

On the positive, the owner was very responsive. We texted her the next morning about the door and the seven or so light bulbs that were out. She had a repairman there by the afternoon.

The area is beautiful, and the location was just right for us. We will be back to Santa Rosa Beach again, however, not to this unit. We will look for something with more recent reviews and a hefty cleaning fee. It would have been worth it!

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you did not have a great experience. I do address issues promptly to meet any needs that arise. This review is a month after your arrival. Wish you would have called when you arrived regarding cleaning. Most my renters are repeat guests that love the unit and treat the unit like their own. Hope you find a better place suited to your preferences.

Loved the Lazy Lobster

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this condo. We loved the beach, best sand of the many places we have stayed in Florida. All the appliances appeared new, and the kitchen looked to be recently upgraded. Great having 2 bedrooms with their own bathrooms. We sat on the porch each evening and enjoyed the ease of access to the beach. It was a short walk to the beach, and close enough that it was easy to go back and forth. We took a cooler each day and only had to come back to use the restroom. The first floor family room was very nice, and we took advantage of the fully stocked kitchen to prepare breakfast, several lunches and several dinners. We walked to the local shops for coffee, and used the walking path a couple times to go for a nice walk. Walking east on the path led to some very pretty areas that are uncrowded.

We would stay here again anytime.

Highly Recommended Rental

  • 5 of 5

This end unit condo is very spacious, perfect for our family of four getaway. The ease of an electronic lock offers easy access. Pros: Very modern, clean, well decorated, comfortable furnishings, quiet, near the pool/hot tub, grills, only a block from the most beautiful beach (easy walk), outside showers, very comfortable beds, separate full baths for both bedrooms, tvs in all of the rooms, covered parking, large laundry area for convenience. Easy walk to restaurants/shops at Gulf Place. Enjoyed walking, grabbing a cup of coffee at Sunset Coffee and a stroll on the beach in the mornings, owners very easy to work with and very responsive. Cons: just off of 30A so sometimes you will hear traffic, not right on the beach, two sets of stairs if you have difficulty in mobility. I highly recommend this place - we hope to be back next year!

2nd Time even better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Lazy Lobster, we really enjoyed it once again and will certainly be back again. The recent upgrades were just right for that beachy feel. The easy access to the beach is definately a plus. We brought our beach gear and were lucky enough to have great weather for our stay. We will definately be back hopefully not so long until next time.

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Loved the location...easy walk to the beach and to the little shop/restaurant area.

Close enough to Destin, but loved the quietness of Santa Rosa Beach. Great family fun!

  • 4 of 5

Our overall opinion is good. I think a touch up of paint and an update of some furniture would change our opinion to excellent. One thing I think should be mentioned also in the description is the two flights of stairs. It did make the townhome feel much larger but could be troublesome for an elderly person. We loved the location and is very close to the beach. We also loved the covered parking, the tennis courts and pools. Did ask for a new iron that was broke on day one and didn't get it replaced.
