We want you to know what a great time we had in Destin this past week. Your company took great care of us as we needed a new grill to replace the one that was on the premises. Your property manager had the cleaning personal attempt to clean the existing unit, that did not work so he brought us a new unit. We used it almost every day until we left. Your immediate response to our needs showed us we made the correct choice in dealing with your organization. The property also met our needs and was clean upon our arrival. Thank you for helping our family have a great get together.
So we were very excited to get to stay in such a beautiful house...or so we thought!
First the good:
*great location...literally steps to the beach
*plenty of space
*the pool was very dirty but after a call they did send a pool guy out to clean it
At first the small stuff wasn't an issue for us but it seemed the bad just kept piling up..so for the bad:
*no broom anywhere in the house, ocean reef was called and told they would bring one but never did. We had to just go out and buy one (wasnt such a big deal but still aggravating)
*the house was far from clean. There was dried food on the counters, if you flip up the rugs there was sand galore, the shower couldn't have been cleaned because there was still stuff left from the previous guests in it, there was a condom in one of the bedside tables
*ROACHES....this discovered on the last night and not just one little roach there were several of all sizes including a huge one. They were in the drawer where the utensils are stored.
*Could use some major maintenance...Broken blinds, walls are beat up, accent pillows are falling apart
*Another biggie is the air conditioner was awful and kept freezing up even though we kept it on the 72 it said to keep it on. It stayed soooo hot upstairs that it was miserable!
*Also the highest balcony has a bad soft spot that feels like will give at any moment.
I am not one to complain. Even after the house wasn't clean upon arrival we didn't call and complain, we just cleaned it ourselves but the roaches did us in last night. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement.
We stayed here last week and absolutely loved it. We had 4 children under four (plus 5 adults) and with the combination of the pool and the proximity to the beach, we couldn't have asked for a better set up. The house could use some minor (and I mean minor) TLC...back door sticks a bit, touch up painting...but overall it was very comfortable, cool, close to everything we needed and best of all it made our vacation a true VACATION for everyone. Kids loved it, parents relaxed. We'll be back next year!
