Had a great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house! We were able to book a trip in February to take advantage of the unusually warm weather and found this house clean & comfortable. We loved the margarita machine & the lagoon pool with waterfalls. The beach proximity was pretty nice for taking walks. All in all, great stay, and we'd do it again.

Nice needs some new purchases and a shuttle/walking/beach area reality statement

  • 3 of 5

Cute place and community. But needs some creature comfort purchases. The two king beds are worn out. They have body impressions and the springs have been maxed out. When you get up or roll over you hear them creak and ping. I get up a few times a night and it's loud and wakes up your partner. Our other guest said the same of their king bed. Not sure of other beds. The couches are uncomfortable. Look like dorm room furnished couches. Also very worn out springs. Very dirty as well. Imagine sweaty beach goers after a walk back. Invest in a pleather set to match the build out and be a cleanable surface. There are no cleaning supplies at all to speak of. One 2oz liquid dish soap and two dishwasher pods. We are ok with no spices or food products but under the sink cleaning supplies could be more plentiful. No scrub brush for the sink etc. Rule could be if you run out buy more and leave it behind. We would have left all the stuff we bought glass cleaner, large bottle dish soap, scrub brush, more pods for dishwasher, 409 etc. no problem. Only one kitchen trash can bag provided so get those. Paper towels and toilet paper we bought plenty and get that. There was a roll in each bathroom to start. But No paper towels provided get those. So some immediate shopping for necessities is in order before you arrive. Its a nice structure and build out/ finish out but the little stuff got in the way at the start. The walking/shuttle distance Beaches are mainly private. There is about 20 yards of front row area to put up an umbrella off the barracuda public access and a little more on the pompano public access. So get there around 7am to set up an umbrella or the umbrella vendors will take the best spots and do encroach on the public area if left unchecked. If you try to go into their area they run you off back into the corral. Maybe work a deal with Crystal Beach Condos to allow beach access instead of the excursion offerings. We decided after day one of the beach squeeze on crystal beach to drive to Grayton Beach State Park. Much better. You can spread out there and the walk is no different in distance in fact shorter. Worth the drive. Get there around 10am and you will get a prime spot not to far off the boardwalk. About 30 minutes from the house. And the restaurants up and down 30A are delicious. Lastly unless you have little kids 6 and under the pool Is packed all day every day with families and little ones. Packed. So if you like that it will be perfect for you

Owner's Response: Hi Brent, Thank you for your feedback on lovely Tequila Sunrise. Creature comfort wise, we give our guests a list of what to expect in the properties as soon as they sign the rental agreement, so they will know how to prepare for the stay. We have tried providing larger dishwashing liquid as well as sundry items but those items always get taken by guests. We tell all of our guests that we provide starters of paper towels, toilet paper and such. For longer stays, you should definitely purchase a few items. We haven't had other comments like yours regarding the mattresses, and wish you had called because we could have provided you with mattress toppers. This home just went through an extensive deep cleaning, so it is in great shape for the coming season. How crowded the beaches are definitely depends on timing, and you must have been in town during a very crowded period. We're sorry you were inconvenienced by that. Henderson Beach Park would have been a much closer alternative for you, it's only 2.5 miles away. Again, how crowded the pool is also depends on season and time of day, sorry that these things influenced the fun of your trip.
