Upon arriving we were super excited about the awesome location. Our vacation dream quickly crumbled as we walked in the condo and nearly gagged with the musty and (mildew or mold?) smell permeating the residence. My husband's sinuses started acting up almost immediately and this was terrible because he was planning to do some work each day in the condo before joining us on the beach. I knew it was going to be hard for him and all of us to relax inside the condo. I immediately called Dawn who said she had "gotten used to the smell?" and assured me that all the old condos on the beach smell this way. We have stayed in otherolder beach condos and have never had this experience. She offered to have a maintenance man come and spray something to help, however he never came. I asked that we please be moved to a new place and she said that wasn't possible because all their properties were booked. Fair enough, so I asked that they agree to refund us so that we could leave and find a new place. At this point only a few cheaper hotels had vacancies but we would have rather stayed anywhere else because the air quality was so scary inside this unit. Disappointed and frustrated beyond words, we stayed at the condo. Each morning we all felt allergy like symptoms from dull headaches, stuffy noses and irritated throats. I continued to try to reach out to Dawn for a solution, who said she would look for another place for us and bring some "Damp Rid" by. Both of which never happened! We paid premium rates for this condo and were sorely disappointed. We tried to spend as much time OUTSIDE of this unit to avoid the air inside. What a bummer to save all year, pick a property in a very nice area, purchase plane tickets, and then have to endure this terrible (moldy/mildew?) smell coming from the HVAC ducts. We honestly felt so ripped off and were give no real solution. The property is in such a prime spot and has such magnificent views! Other than the overwhelming musty smell, we would have been very happy.

The air quality of this unit ruined our vacation and I write this review to let others know who are looking at this property and may be sensitive to air quality. I really wish I had known in advance and I would not have put my family through this.

Owner's Response: Amanda- I'm so sorry you experienced issues during your stay this past summer. The AC ducts in this unit received a thorough cleaning during the fall off season during it's annual deep clean. We truly apologize you had to experience any discomfort at all. Please contact us in the future and we will take care of you. Thank you

Excellent Spot for a Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this condo. Between Seagrove and Seacrest/Rosemary but not right in the middle of either one of them. You felt a little more secluded than most spots on 30A, yet only a few minutes away from all those conveniences. Not much more you can say about the views other than they are unbelievable. The unit itself was very comfortable. It's an older unit on the inside, but very comfortable nonetheless.

Great location but needs updating.

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed in this area several times and Blue Tide is the perfect location. However, this unit needs updating. The carpet and couches were dirty and the oven and stove did not work. There was cracked tile and black gunk in the bathroom floor. The bed was comfortable and the location was great.

Owner's Response: Hi Buck- I apologize for the stove not working for that one day. We sent maintenance out as soon as you notified us and it was up and running again. It had come unplugged. As far as the tile, as you can see from the pictures, the tile is white with darker grout. The unit is clean, I promise, it's just an older tile and grout combination, but it is clean. Thanks for the feedback.

The view wins!

  • 3 of 5

The Good: 1) The mattress is soft and comfortable. 2) Dawn was quick to help with the noise above us 3) The view cant be beat! Love waking up to the ocean. 4) Great Location! 5) Right on the water!!!

The Bad: 1) You walk up to a faded old front door with trash around it. 2) DISGUSTING DIRTY carpet in bedroom. 3) Tile needs to be replaced in various spots and grout is VERY dirty. 4)Screens on back porch need to be replaced and so does the patio furniture. 5) The outside closet door does not shut and full of trash, rusty old beach chairs and unusable toys. 6) Only a half used roll of toilet paper provided. Zero soap in kitchen.Only one trash bag as well. Most places start with at least one extra roll, a small soap in kitchen, and a spare trash bag! 7) We also were suppose to receive a text of the code to enter the unit at 4pm but we did not receive. So we had to track people down. JOSH never answered. Nor did he return our phone call. 8) If you cant handle noise above you...heavy footed..children running...this isn't the unit for you....

30A Vacay on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice place. Most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in a rental. Nice cookware and all you need if you are cooking in. Some lights were burned out and it smelled musty when we walked in. Views are spectacular . Close to everything. We love the beaches here. Great rental for a couple

Wonderful small family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

So much good!...

Great view. You can easily hear ocean with the door open. Very spacious one bedroom condo. We have two small children and they had plenty of room to run around and play. So close to restaurants and shopping in the seaside/sea grove/seacrest/watercolor/Alys area.

Wonderful communication with renter! I had my code and check in details WAY in advance. Anytime I had a question they were just an email, phone call or text away. So reassuring knowing they will contact you promptly.

The ONLY con I could possibly think of would be if you weren't able to climb stairs and you wanted to go on the beach this would not be the place for you. There is a very large staircase down to the beach. I would guess 50 steps. Once you are down the stairs you are just a few steps away from the ocean though. It was not a problem with us with a 4 and 2 yr old.
