What an amazing property! It was everything we expected and more. I've rented numerous properties through VRBO and have been extremely satisfied with every home we have visited. Hendrik and his staff were so wonderful and responsive and even through we had to cut our vacation short due to COVID-19, we are anxiously awaiting for the "All Clear" so we can return to the Sunset Wave House. What a Gem!
Unusual house...which was both good and bad
We stayed in Sunset Wave between Christmas and New Years. The house is indeed beautiful -it has an ultra-modern vibe, with a nice pool and hot tub, and is literally just steps from the beach. And, we had several totally amazing sunsets during our stay. They also have an 'honor bar' which is well-stocked with very interesting bottles!
However - the house was a prime example of 'form over function,' meaning that it was lovely to look at, but not very easy to live in. Given the small fortune we spent to rent it, we expected more. It is basically 'over-engineered' with complex lighting controls and a sound system that never worked properly. There are touchscreens in several rooms, which are designed to control everything from TV to lighting to sound. Someone should spend an hour walking newly arrived guests through their use. There was no such orientation when we arrived. They do have laminated 'how-to' instructions for the TV remotes and an online video which demonstrates the touchscreens - but we found them to be basically worthless. Even the faucet in the kitchen had some sort of motion-control which never worked properly. On the first day of our stay, we literally couldn't get the kitchen faucet to turn on, so we called the caretaker who said "Yeah...its a really complicated house...just wave your hand around near the faucet a few times and it should come on."
Keep in mind...we aren't idiots..and we had several 20-somethings with us who were even more tech-savvy than their parents!
While there are very nice flat screens in many of the rooms, there actually is no cable connection - only internet. So - guests will need to use their own Netflix, Hulu or Amazon accounts to watch TV. No way to watch basic cable (i.e. CNN, etc) or any local channels.
The outdoor keypad for the garage stopped working midway through our stay, but by that point, we had called the caretaker enough times, and we just didn't want to bother her further.
One last thing. The beds are extremely low - basically the mattresses sit on 6 inch platforms. In the Master Bedroom that platform includes a shelf that sticks out about a foot beyond the mattress. So, if you make a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night, be VERY careful when returning to the bed, or you'll end up like I did - with a nice bruise on your shin when your leg collides with the platform that juts out about a foot beyond the mattress.
We apologize this guest's stay was not as expected and for any miscommunication. The house does have highest speed Internet and most online TV Apps are always signed into. Regular TV channels including local and all the news ones do stream on SlingTV, which is an InternetTV App. We will also always sign you up for specific sports packages that may interest you, upon request. We do encourage a tour at the beginning of every guest's stay, but also respect ones' wish to arrive in peace and tour the home with us at a later time or not at all. Please be assured that we strive to handle every guest request within the hour. We are adding staff to our team, that has gone through the proper training on this particular home, but I am personally always available, too. This is the first 3-Star review in 4 years, and we will work hard to make sure it will be the last one.
Perfect house in perfect location for family fall trip
Excellent in every way
Sunset Wave and Seasalt Properties - Best of the Best!
We spent a long family holiday (6 weeks) in Sunset Wave with 10 people. It was our 6th stay in a villa on the Gulf Coast - by far the best ever. Sunset Wave tops everything we have experienced in the past. And the management by Seasalt Properties couldn't be better. Whatever issue came up was solved within one day. Thank you so much, Hendrik and Steve. If we will ever plan a similar event in the future, there is only one choice: Sunset Wave and Seasalt Properties!
Hendrik extremely responsive to any questions during the week. Our 4 adult kids, spouses and grandkids LOVED the home. Great house for family reunions or trips with friends—plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms!
Loved our stay at Sunset Wave!!! Would love to return some day.
Enjoy staying in one of Florida's last true beach communities: Sunset Beach, located on the southern-most tip of Treasure Island. Find your peace in this very quiet, small neighborhood many refer to as a hidden gem. Award-winning restaurants and open-air bars are just a short walk away. Should you wish to explore Treasure Island and nearby St. Pete Beach, more options for shopping, boating, fishing, golf, tennis and much more are available. With space for couples, families, family reunions, small conferences or beachfront weddings, Sunset Wave is your perfect get-away. And our beaches are considered one of the best shelling beaches in the world. Downtown St Petersburg is a 15 minute drive. Tampa Airport is a 40 minute drive.
