Fab Fourth!

Two families that really enjoyed our stay. The two golf carts made it very manageable. Excellent layout and nicely decorated.

We will be back! Excellent Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this home a few weeks back and were a little skeptical based on a review we read here on VRBO. We called in after booking to ask about the review and the vacation haven team were so informative and helpful! They immediately put me at ease and ensured a great vacation, and that it was exactly what it was! It was the perfect time of year to come, less crowded but still sunny and warm. We will be booking this property again and thanks again for the amazing customer service from the team of vacation haven.

Take the Review Serious

  • 3 of 5

First let me say the house is beautiful and in a good location. The pool being right out the front door was nice, the golf carts are great to get around in, The Wharf is walking distance, so all that is great. They did provide plenty of towels for each bathroom which was nice.

I did read the reviews before deciding on this home, and there were 2, but neither were good, so my mistake for renting it. I was thinking by the time my family and friends arrived for our vacation, that all the issues would be handled considering it was a new house and some of the kinks needed to be worked out. One being the bathroom upstairs has a leak causing the ceiling downstairs to leak, this started the second time the shower, toilet or sink ( not sure which and not sure the owner or My Vacation Haven knows)was used. We contacted My Vacation Haven immediately and told them the ceiling was leaking, and like the other reviews, we were told not to use that bathroom. That was not the answered we were looking for considering we had 8 people and 3 people were in that room, and this problem has been on going. They sent the builder out the next day to look at the problem, he told us there was nothing that could be done until the house was vacated. So still not sure the issue will be resolved anytime soon. My Vacation Haven was apologetic, but really, that doesn't help. I called them several times before arrival to see if all issues from the previous reviews had been handled and they promised they had been, well obviously they were not.

Also, the cleaning crew is not the best, they need a supervisor to go behind them and make sure everything is cleaned and ready before allowing the guest to enter. There was sand in the showers, the cushions on the back porch and the porch itself had mold and mildew all over it, the cushions on the kitchen chairs are stained and need to be washed down, the floors were not mopped and cleaned very well.

So lesson learned for me, take the reviews seriously. I get 1 vacation a year and I feel for the money (not cheap) I should not have to stay on the phone with the rental companies or owners worried about their property and ruining my vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. This is something that we have been baffled with ourselves doing everything we could to determine what the issue was. After exhausting all efforts, we were able to recreate the issue and will be resolving this for all future guests here in the coming weeks. We understand the inconvenience and appreciate your bringing this to our attention along with other guests that have stayed and let us know and are grateful for a resolution to prevent this from deterring anyone away from this beautiful home. Thank you, The My Vacation Haven Team

This our second year in a row to visit Sandestin. Last year we stayed in the Laurel Grove subdivision but this year we needed an additional bedroom and golf cart, so we decided to give this rental a try.

My husband and I have two young children and were bringing along both sets of grandparents (6 adults in total plus 2 kids). Contrary to how it looks in the pictures the bedrooms are TIGHT and the bathrooms are even worse.

This property had a lot of faults. None of the bathrooms had all of the lightbulbs working and they were very, very dark. There was probably a total of 12-15 lightbulbs not functioning throughout the home.

There was painters tape left all over the walls, a dirty rag greeted us upon arrival on the stairs, and the towel rack in the bunk room was dangling on the wall, clearly broken.

There were two rolls of toilet paper per bathroom which was clearly NOT enough for the amount of people we had staying at the home for 7 days. They did not provide beach towels which was a huge negative; who needs to pack one more thing? Our last rental supplied plenty of beach towels. Other small complaints are that there were no trash bags (again, we stayed 7 days, of course there will be trash!), no paper towels, only one kitchen towel, the skillet was broken, and there was only dish detergent for one load of dishes.

Additionally, they have a significant hot water issue. If two people tried to take a shower at either the same time or within 30 min's of each other, the water would be FREEZING.

The biggest faux pas was that when we called to complain that one of the cable remotes wasn't working, they decided to send someone over to the house unannounced while we were out. We showed up and a stranger was in the home where our jewelry, money and other articles of value were laying out. This was totally not handled well at all. They didn't even fix the remote! They never even called us back (we had to leave a message) to ask what specifically wasn't working (by the way, if you happen to read this it's the remote in the bunk room and while it will turn the TV on, several other buttons like Select do not would know that had you called us back).

I do not appreciate the fact that they seem to think it's okay to barge in while someone is staying there unannounced. I am also speaking as an owner - we have a property listed on this site (in a different part of the country) and would NEVER treat a client this disrespectfully.

I will start by saying this has been far below industry standard on every level. Number one, we have 8 children 4 adults. When we arrived the children went to the pool. They came in walking around barefoot. All there get turned black from the grime on the floors. We notified rental company. We are on day four, this problem still isn't solved. It is embarrassing as I invited guests to a million dollar home vacation and their children literally have feet that are turning black.

Next we had a ceiling leak. The maintenance people apparently misdiagnosed the issue. So, we are told we were losing the use of that shower and bathroom, while maintenance men cut holes in the ceiling and did repair work while we attempt to vacation. For all of this chaos we were offered a whopping one night off our stay.

I bright five families with me total, spent $10000 in rentals through rentals in this trip. And this was the best they could do. They are losing my business. I hope that you will highly reconsider before renting this property😡.
