Very unimpressive for A LOT OF $$ for 4 night stay. Bedding was torn and disgusting and not clean
Problems with cable. Even with a sheet of “directions” it took many of us and maintenance to figure it out-and it still wasn’t perfect. The ideal situation would be one remote control (like a hotel) not five. A towel I picked up wash my face was grey and frayed on the edges-smelled clean but very old!! Many blinds were broken so that they would not stay fully closed to the wall so as to not provide full privacy. There was old built up dirt/dust/shampoo? on and around master tub. The manager didn’t seem very keen to talking with me about it and changing the price seeing as though the house was dingy and bedding was very inappropriately nasty!! One of the worst stays I’ve ever had away from home. So many other things (like someone else’s sock left in the bed...”but it was clean”) but I’ll just leave it at this. There was a reason this house was last to go in Destiny by the Sea for a spring break stay...and we were the fools to take it.
I encourage all guests to read all the five star reviews below this one. Nothing was going to please this guest. These guest were looking for a free vacation from the get go. This home is cleaned 1-3 times a week and just had a deep clean prior to her arrival. Let me address the items she mentioned.
1. The minute they arrived and called about not being able to work the TV - I sent maintenance over immediately and he showed them how to work it. It has surround sound etc so it's more advanced than a hotel TV but we do list instructions (generally not a problem)
2. Laundry is professionally cleaned with each cleaning.
3. They are shutters/NOT blinds and they do close shut.
4. The master comforter had one tiny hole on the end and because she wasn't happy - we went that day and bought her a brand new comforter (again - nothing was going to make her happy).
We get many repeat guest - this home is great and like I mentioned above - please read all our 5 star reviews below to assure you of that.
We we're down for a girls' trip and had an absolute blast! The house was so perfect for us and so close to the beach! I loved that you could see the ocean from the master bedroom.
We all had a great time and were very impressed with the home. Courtney was so great and easy to reach!
Overall it was good but I would like right on the beach so I could walk out the back door to the bea
The house was nice but I did not like that there were more actual bedrooms. Not private enough for 13 people
Family vacation on the beach
Courtney was wonderful and available by text email or phone . This was a great location, house and walk to the private beach. The house was clean, spacious, and large enough for my family of 9. Would recommend Courtney and Destiny by the sea homes.
Destiny by the Sea Proprerty # 593570
The house is spacious, clean, organized. My family and friends enjoy the stay.
The rooms should be cleared stated - 5 bedrooms . The room with the Murphy bed and the Room with the BUNK beds should state in 1 room with separate Bunk Beds (4 Bedrooms). In actuality it is 1 room.
Overall, my stay was very enjoyable.
Great people at the gate, enjoyed speaking with the Elderly gentlemen in the afternoons. The house was great. Thanks Courtney for going outta your way.
