We spent the week at Seacrest Beach in this rental and all in all, it was nice. Issues: the place was not clean and even after we contacted the rental manager, nothing was done. You could not walk in on the floors/carpets without your feet turning black. The furniture is dirty and worn and many items need to be replaced. We couldn't sit in some of the furniture on the deck without fear of falling through. Pans need to be replaced; a new set isn't that expensive!
Other than that, the place was fine for the week. The pools were great except for the temperature of the pool...very cold. Shuttle service was good and they were very receptive.
After reading some reviews I was a little nervous about the unit but found it to be spacious, had everything we needed and was perfect for going to the pool. Some of the furniture was worn but not a big deal as it was a great price. I do think the floors could use a good cleaning as well as the rugs. The staff was super from the tram drivers, security and pool staff. I hate that we are outgrowing 4 bedrooms and need 5 or would book this place again. We definitely want to come back to Seacrest.
We have stayed in Seacrest Beach several times over the years. This unit overlooks the pool and is in a great location to the activities. Love the large dining table, the layout of the bedrooms & the huge balcony that overlooked the pool. The lockbox was very cumbersome to use at the door and would suggest replacing with a door keypad lock like some of the other units. The Master bathroom was disappointing with the water pressure very poor and the tub/shower combo was difficult to get in and out of. Decor needs refreshing as well as mattresses and kitchen pots/pans & silverware need to be refreshed with a higher quality. We love 30A and will definitely come back to the area.
Every year my family gets together for a week at the beach and we have fallen in love with the Seacrest/Rosemary Beach area. Seacrest itself is a great complex of condos and houses. The pool is amazing and there is easy access to the beach, stores, and restaurants. When booking the condo I made several contacts with Ashley at the rental agency. She was always very helpful and prompt when responding to my questions. The condo itself is in a grew location right next to the pool. Bedroom configurations worked out well for us and the large dining table was perfect for gathering around. Parking was not a problem - there were several reserved spots and extra slots for overflow. The general decor was nice and coordinated. My only complaint would be in the overall upkeep of the unit. It is definitely looking a little tired. I would suggest replacing the bedding, providing new pots and pans (several were warped and almost unusable), and repainting the entire unit. Many of the walls were dirty and stained. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed. Tweaking this unit would take it from ho-hum to amazing.
My husband and I took our teenage son and 3 of his friends to stay in this Seacrest condo over spring break. We were very happy with it. The pictures are an accurate portrayal of the interior. Deck is very spacious and plenty of furniture. Well-stocked kitchen and huge dining table. The main drawback is that the front door lockbox for key was cumbersome to use. Good location/view to pool. Near all the "action". Be sure to lock your bikes outside condo, as we had 2 stolen overnight during our stay.
Our family travels to the Seacrest Beach area each Fall and typically stay at the Villas of Seacrest condos. This year we had an extra couple joining us so we needed a unit with a fourth bedroom. The Unit was very spacious and nicely laid out. The listing which described the property was very accurate and working with the Management Company was very easy. Everyone at the Management Company was very friendly and they even gave us out check in code a couple of hours prior to check in time, which was very nice. Everyone had plenty of room to spread out. The patio overlooks the 12,000 sq ft lagoon pool and the furniture on the patio was adequate for everyone to come outside and enjoy their coffee each morning.
There are a few things that could be changed to make this unit even better. The first thing is the inconvenience of the key box on the front door. The keys are in a box which is attached to the front door. At check-in you are provided with the code to the box that opens and you have to get the actual key out to open the door (both dead bolt and regular lock). Most of the units we have stayed in have a code which is part of the door handle, which makes it much simpler. Secondly, there is no WiFi connection in the unit, only an ethernet connection. Adding WiFi is not that much more expensive and it would add value to the rental unit and make it more attractive to renters. Most all families utilize some form of electronics that can benefit from WiFi technology. The last thing is that the unit was in need of a good cleaning. Granted we were there in the Fall which I am sure by the end of the season the unit has been through quite a few families. We found large, dark stains in the carpet and the bathrooms were not as clean as I would have expected. The unit is also in need of a coat a new paint. The ceramic tile floor was filthy. If you had on socks or were barefoot your feet were black by the end of the evening, it definitely needs a good cleansing. Additionally, the beds were not the most comfortable, but we were on vacation and didn't spend a lot of time in them anyway.
Overall a very nice unit and we would stay there again. Just a few small changes and attention to detail would take this from an Average rated unit to an Excellent unit.
