Generally very good. A few serious maintenance issues such as leaks which had obviously existed for a while. We were told that it was an "off season repair job". I wonder why we were not told about this issue.

Owner's Response: Hi Mr.s G. Thank you so much for the feedback on Ariel's Reef. This home is in a great location and is well stocked with everything you need for your vacation. The beach access is directly across the street and the large private pool is a great addition. We are so sorry to hear about the leaks in the windows. We wanted to let you know that during your stay was the first report of the leaks in the bedroom windows. Unfortunately, since it has been a very rainy summer for us, these problems can take some time to show themselves. It is considered an off season project since we will likely have to demo the wall or replace the windows, leaving the home unusable for at least a week. We did not let you know prior to check in because the leak hadn't appeared prior to your stay. It as reported to us the day before your departure for the first time and since we had new renters coming in the next day, we did not have enough time to repair the leak properly. We do appreciate you reporting this issue to us and will certainly repair as best as we can until permanent repairs can be made.

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!

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!
