Reviewer Comments:

Property was well equipped. Everyone in our group had plenty of space. Kitchen was great!!! we had our Thanksgiving dinner without a hitch. One recommendation I do submit is: The top floor crows nest needs a shower in it. Anyone sleeping in the crows nest must take a shower in another bathroom in the house. This can be a little annoying.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you so much for the review! Ariels Reef has all the best things that a vacation rental can offer. It's across the street from the beach, has plenty of room, plus a huge back yard with a private, heated pool. We will discuss the shower suggestion with the homeowner, however, that bathroom is a little small. We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday! Come back and stay wth us again soon!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our first trip to the Seaside/Watercolor area. It was a perfect location, directly across 30A from the public boardwalk down to the beach. There were other families nearby but it wasn't nearly as crowded as the Seaside area. The fun shops and food trailers in Seaside, and all the biking I think would be great if you are traveling with older kids who are somewhat independent, but I wouldn't personally have been comfortable sending my 8-10 year olds off like that in an unfamiliar place. We would go out to the beach every morning, then come back to the house for a late lunch. There was rain almost every afternoon we were there, so the kids had a blast with the xbox and games in the playroom. We had 4 adults and 8 kids between the families, and had plenty of room. Plenty of towels were provided, but not much soap/shampoo/toilet paper. We would go back again for sure!

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you so much for the nice review! We definitely agree that Ariel's reef is the perfect home for children. It has everything a kid could want and is in a safe, non-crowded area. The beach access being directly across the street is also very convenient! The private pool and large back yard area is also perfect for staying in, grilling out, and having a swimming party! We hope you come back and stay with us again soon!

Reviewer Comments:

Great House, had some flaws. Roof was all tore up in Family Room not disclosed by Royal Destinations. Pool light didn't work so we couldn't go night swimming with the kids also never disclosed by Royal Destinations. PERFECT Location. For the amount you save not being beach front its a simple walk right across the street to beach access.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for the feedback. We are so sorry the message was not given to you on the kitchen ceiling. There was a leak that was repaired during the busy season and there was not enough time between guests to get the ceiling repaired. The repairs to the drywall have been scheduled now that we are out of Summer season. The parts for the pool light are on order and we apologize for the inconvenience during your stay. Ariel's reef really is a prefect location for a beach house. The private pool and short walk to the beach make it a perfect rental home for families. We hope that you come a visit us again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review! Ariel's Reef is truly a hidden gem. The beach is quiet and the home is very comfortable for multiple families.

Details for future guests

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this house. It was a great space for 11 of us to share & I would recommend it for 13 without anyone having to use a sleeper sofa. I thought I'd provide some details for future guests so you can be better prepared for what the property is like: there is no hot tub as stated in the listing; there is a foose ball table as well as air hockey; there is no waterfall in the pool (a major disappointment for the kids in our group) & also currently no pool lights for night swimming; 3 bikes are included with the rental; 2 beach chairs & umbrella are provided but new county code states they can't be moved from their location & their location is in the second row back from the surf (if you want to set up a tent by them, it puts you in the 3rd row back); the kitchen is VERY well stocked (2 waffle makers, kitchen aid mixer, ninja, more than 18 of all plates, bowls, forks etc); there is a full-size fridge in the kitchen as well as a mini downstairs, a mini upstairs, & a wine fridge; the towels are plentiful; there are MANY hooks for hanging wet towels/swimsuits (more than 30!! love that!!); overall a VERY clean & well-kept house (though we did kill 6-8 GIANT roaches so maybe you should pack a sticky bug trap for the laundry room); there was a leak in the living room ceiling during 3 days of our stay due to an AC unit (the property managers attended to it quickly but it took about 4-5 maintenance visits to get the drip to quit. The visits weren't necessarily an inconvenience b/c they could work while we weren't there. The biggest inconvenience was that the floor was wet & furniture was re-arranged for 3 days, there were loud shop-fans blowing, as well as I had many extra dishes to wash b/c we had to use pots to catch the dripping water). Luckily the 1 day we went without air conditioning was a cloudy day & the downstairs unit was still working. Perhaps the owners should consider partial refunds for guests that help maintain their house to such an extent (the ceiling would have definitely fallen in if we hadn't been there). I know some of this sounds like a really bad review, but we had a great time, the location is great, & if the waterfall & pool lights get repaired, we would definitely want to visit again!!

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for the feedback. We are happy to have such a detailed review and apologize for the AC leak and maintenance interruptions during your stay. On the hot tub note, we have edited the description to read "soaking tub". Jacuzzi is the brand so we understand how that could have been misleading. As you may know, June and July are our busiest months so the leak was much out of our control since the place was booked solid. We always try and respond in a timely manner and were able to repair the leak during your stay. We had pest control come out and spray for bugs shortly after your stay. We are working on getting the pool light fixed and the waterfall is now working. We will update this review response once it is fixed. We hope you come back and stay with us again soon!
