This condo was very comfortable for me and my guest. The view was awesome !!!! I loved that plates, glasses, and silverware were provided as well as extra linens and pillows. There were plenty of face towels and towels provided. The building was overall quiet and clean. My only complaint was that the iron needed replacing. The iron could not be used with water because it leaked bad in which I like to steam iron. Other than that the place was extremely pleasant.

Affordable studio with great views

  • 4 of 5

The room was clean and the view of the bay was excellent. The only opportunity for improvement I saw was to explain in the ad that there is no housekeeping and you do not have access to the resort shuttles to the beach.

Not up to its usual standards

  • 3 of 5

Sheets were soiled and apparently had not been changed, we changed them ourselves but only had standard sheets to try to cover a king bed, didn't call anyone because we got in late and we didn't want to be kept up any later. Floor was also dirty used Reeses Cups wrapper got stuck to my shoe from apparently under the sofa...didn't appear housekeeping completed cleaning...towels were clean, bathroom was clean except tub had hair in it. Tub doesn't drain well, above my ankles before completing a shower...the good part is there is plenty of hot water and good water pressure, and a nice view. Bed when made is very comfortable as are the pillows.

Fire alarm when off around 11 pm on Saturday night (we were leaving Sunday morning), had to evacuate bldg, a lot of walking to get off the 8th floor, took about 15 minutes or a little longer to get fire trucks there, turns out it was an electrical short with no real smoke, but with ozone setting off alarms. Didn't get an all clear until near midnight. Did get a chance to see a lot of folks pjs, night gowns, gym shorts, etc. Some managers from Sandestin appeared around 11:40 and provided us info, and offered any assistance we might need. That didn't extend to giving us an extra hour or so to check out the next morning, they actually called at 10:20am to make sure we were ready to check out or we could incur additional expenses....

Only other major issue was pool was closed for one day due to a pump issue, happened to be the only afternoon we had free from the conference (Friday) and part of Thursday and Saturday....

Had a mtg for 3 days at conference center, it was well managed.

Owner's Response: I'm very surprised to read about the housekeeping issues and truly, truly apologize if these issues were present, and I will be speak to the cleaning company immediately. And if this had been reported to me, I would have had the cleaners back over for a complete re clean at a time of the guests convenience. As for the fire alarm, and pool issues, those are controlled by the condominium building and apologize for the inconveniences of those. If I had been contacted and known about it, I would have certainly offered at the least, a late checkout. I am confused about why Sandestin would have contacted my guest about checking out on time or incurring additional costs if not - as Sandestin has nothing to do with the operation nor rental of this unit. This unit is privately owned and rented. Thank you.
