Reviewer Comments:

House was not cleaned upon entry. Missing towels...wifi not setup per all of the details. $300 cleaning fee and I have to spend my vacation time cleaning when I arrive? House was nice but not very well appointed. Stayed in a neighboring house last year that was much nicer.

Owner's Response: We apologize for the home not being cleaned to our "Benchmark" standards. We will address this with the cleaning and inspection staff and do our very best to make sure it does not happen again. Our heavy vacation period is winding down. We will be inspecting each home's appointments and addressing any improvements we believe can be made with each individual owner. We appreciate your comments and hope you will come back to 30A and vacation again. Thanks, Benchmark

Reviewer Comments:

Our family vacations in the Watersound area every year. We love the beaches and the area. Overall we had a good trip. In total, we had 4 adults & 9 children. We were excited about the location behind the HUB, especially for our older nephews. The photos of the house looked beautiful & perfect for our vacation. Here are the areas that had a negative impact on our trip & need improvement. We knew the Prominence neighborhood was still being developed. 1.We were VERY disappointed that our street was the chosen path for huge dump trucks. Every 10 minutes a new dump truck came, with the empty truck passing back through ALL day long, even in the rain, starting at 7 AM!!!. This was an enormous SAFETY concern with all of our children. Beyond that, our relaxing vacation was impacted. It was impossible to sit on the porch with my husband to drink coffee & talk. These trucks passed constantly and were so loud we could not talk. This should have been disclosed to us when renting & a discount should have been given for the inconvenience. Clearly a construction path should have been made so these trucks are not traveling directly through the neighborhood. 2.Another frustration was the cleanliness of the house. For being so new, the cleaning crew did a poor job. There were toys & food on the rug in the living area. Bathrooms & kitchen were not given good TLC. 3.Our house had terrible WIFI service. We contacted the property manager & they tried to address the issue with no success. Cell service is already terrible at the beach and a signal was non-existent in the house. So with such a large group, it would have been nice to have WiFI service that more than 2 people could use at one time. VERY frustrating. 4. I expect the kitchen to be stocked with good cooking tools. All of the pots, pans, utensils etc were very poor quality. It made cooking for a large group almost impossible.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was very very nice. We loved the big dinning table. The entire family was able to fit comfortably. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook full dinners. The bikes also were a great addition. The game room was amazing. We only had a few complaints. We were disappointed at how far the beach was from the house. The shuttle ride was further than what we had expected. The shuttle is an actual bus that takes you about 3 miles down 30a (which has heavy traffic). Also, we were a bit surprised at the distance to the pool from the house. The pool is about a 5-10 min walk which requires you to cross over 30a. We wish we had know this since there were 6 kids with us. Lastly, the internet and cellular service was terrible inside the house. It was almost futile to do general taskes requiring the web and impossible to watch Netflix or stream movies in the evening time with the family.

Things aren't as they appear.

  • 1 of 5

We have been visiting 30a for 15+ years so we are very familiar with what to expect- we LOVE this area and will always keep coming back, but never again to this house.

First of all, this is not a 5 bedroom house. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 little bunk areas at the very top of the stairs with no doors and no outlets. We had depended on using that for our small children- which we did, but it was not easy or convenient. The stairs are in the middle of the kitchen/family room so when our kids went to sleep at 7pm, everyone in the house had to be quiet for the rest of the night because of the echo up the stairs ( again, no doors to the bunks)...also, every morning at 6am when the baby was up, i had to take him outside because he might wake up one of the kids in the bunk "rooms". so that was super annoying. mornings were not for lounging and relaxing. there are 3 big walk-in closets in each of the bedrooms, though, so that was nice if you have packnplays.

secondly, the houses in this subdivision are 1 MILE from the nearest beach access. thats right, no walkable public beach access. when i went back and read the description of the house, it does say that its a "short ride" to the beach, but i had no idea it would be that far. the beach trolley is a good 10 minute ride, and it doesn't pick you up or drop you off at your house (unlike seacrest)- the pick up/drop off point is the pool, so you still have to bike or walk to get there. we ended up driving to the beach, but theres limited parking so during the day, we had someone drop us off and pick us up. if you have little kids and/or lots of things to take to the beach, you should know that this is not convenient.

we spent our days at the pool since getting to the beach was such a headache and i will say, the pool was really great. its a short walk (or bike) from the house and its great for kids- there are fountains and its zero entry so the little ones can play. and it was never very crowded, so that was really nice.

another thing to note: the noise from the HUB wasn't an issue- we never heard anything. it was nice to have the movies and the food so close.

overall, the house was nice- there were a few issues (clogged toilet, downstairs a/c stopped working, etc) that were quickly addressed by the management. but the 2 big negatives couldn't be overlooked- the bedroom situation and the beach access.
